ACTIVATION AND MEASUREMENT
Data activation is the portion of the marketing data stack that allows marketers to take action on organized data. Without the right data activation technology, an organization’s single source of truth becomes inaccessible and less useful. Measurement tools specialize in offering organizations visibility and feedback, regarding the performance and effectiveness of their marketing and advertising campaigns and the most relevant touchpoints that drive sales.
