CUPERTINO, Calif. and WESTMINSTER, Colo., April 10, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Brand marketers have a new modeling resource as the result of an expanded partnership announced today between BlueKai and Datalogix. BlueKai provides the world's most complete platform for data management, analysis and acquisition; Datalogix is the leader in building purchase-based digital audiences and predictive consumer data models. Together they will offer marketers in leading verticals such as Automotive, CPG, Retail and Travel reliable high-propensity audience reach at unmatched scale by marrying BlueKai's valuable audience assets with Datalogix's modeling capabilities.
Today's announcement is important to brands seeking to bridge the gap between their digital marketing initiatives and the world of "big data." Objective research released just last week from Columbia University Business School shows that 91% of respondents agreed that successful brands use customer data to drive marketing decisions, yet only 39% were satisfied with their own company's ability to collect and disseminate that data. By combining audience data from the BlueKai Data Exchange with the customer purchase-based resources and models of Datalogix, brands can confidently access, reach and engage relevant audiences without having to rely solely on their own customer data. The partnership will give marketers a proprietary data asset that expands on their own data in a way that is unique to each marketer.
"BlueKai is becoming the de-facto data platform," said Omar Tawakol, BlueKai chief executive officer. "We're excited to partner with Datalogix, whose analytical chops and deep expertise in consumer purchasing behavior is unparalleled. Through this partnership, marketers will no longer have to choose between big data and better algorithms, they can now have both."
"Marketers are looking for high-performing audiences at scale," said Eric Roza, Datalogix chief executive officer. "BlueKai pioneered the delivery of cross-vertical intent data in one integrated media-agnostic platform, and Datalogix pioneered the delivery of purchase-based digital audiences. We are excited to leverage our experience building 'spend-a-like' models for over 1,000 direct marketers, to partner with BlueKai in advancing the state-of-the-art in delivering highly-relevant audiences at scale."
Effective immediately, the partnership will provide marketers with the ability to select BlueKai audiences or their own first party data and then expand those universes based on Datalogix modeling, which is key to reaching beyond the declared buyers at the bottom of a purchase funnel.
