SILICON SLOPES, Utah — November 18, 2019 — ObservePoint is pleased to announce that, Shawn Reed, Sr. Director, Marketing Technology Solutions at Blue Acorn iCi, will be speaking at the Virtual Analytics Summit (VAS), on January 15, 2020 11am - 4pm EST.
Delivering more personalized experiences to customers (while also improving brand reputation and ROI) requires comprehensive and accurate data. However, all too frequently, companies jump the gun and pursue better personalized experiences through new data without first ensuring the data they are collecting is correct.
Some companies may think that it takes too much time, effort, and money to invest in verifying the data, and that by doing so they’ll be left behind in the race to provide better digital experiences. However, as Reed stated, “Without accurate data to feed them, personalization efforts are an absolute waste of time and money. But ensuring good data requires a lot less time and effort than most people think.”
Just as you can’t build a house without a good foundation and you can’t build great personalized experiences without a foundation of accurate data. In his session, “Comprehensive & Accurate Data: The Cornerstone of a Successful Personalization Program,” Shawn Reed will discuss how to create that foundation through data validation.
As the Sr. Director of Marketing Technology Solutions, Shawn guides Blue Acorn iCi clients through the complexities of measurement strategy and the marketing technology ecosystem. He's worked with dozens of Fortune 500 companies throughout his career, helping them implement the technical capabilities and data integrations needed to deliver superior customer experiences. Shawn also served as the senior product manager at Adobe for Dynamic Tag Management (DTM). He brings 12 years of digital marketing and analytics experience with over 25 years of technology background to solve his clients' most challenging problems. When he's not working, Shawn loves to travel and share music with the world as a DJ (electronic and hip-hop, mostly).
The Virtual Analytics Summit (VAS) is ObservePoint’s annual online summit that draws together over 5,000 analysts and digital marketers from around the world.
