Sandeep Prakash Head, India Business, Quaero

Vishal Sukheja VP, Products, FirstHive

In the face of audience commoditization, fragmented consumption, always-connected viewers, and ever-increasing consumer expectations, traditional content monetization models are not effective for today’s businesses.
In-depth, extensive insight about each consumer, their habits and their preferred content are invaluable in delivering customized personalized content. To achieve this, enterprises need to democratize their data and make it actionable (insights and intelligence). A customer data platform (CDP) serves both these purposes. Thus, a CDP is a necessary asset for enterprises to not just survive but thrive and win in the new data landscape.

In this session Ujjayani Mitra, Head of Data, ZEE5 and Sandeep Prakash, GM/VP APAC Business, Quaero will cover;
1. CDP – A new breed data * analytics platform
