One of ExchangeWire’s industry insiders discusses one of the ac tech’s key buzz phrases – ‘big data’ – and how it is now inextricably linked to CMOs, but also highlights how not all data is created equally, and warns marketers over the hazards of using third-data for strategic business decisions.

Matt Harty, Experian, GM, Audience Solutions, APAC, looks at developments for the region’s third-party data market, and asks how well the programmatic advertising sector in APAC is addressing the audience disjunction problem, particularly in a market that is largely ‘mobile-first’ where cookies are becoming more-and-more redundant.

This year’s ATS London will focus on some of the emerging trends in the contemporary ad tech space, as well as gaze into the near and distant future in an attempt to forecast the challenges facing the ‘traditional’ ad tech players.
