OMMA Audience Targeting at Ad Week

Next Screen Agenda: Will The Audience Buying Revolution Be Televised?

All hail DATA! Or so it seems. Every platform and operation in the media and marketing sphere is chasing big data, targeting data, predictive analytics and profiling algorithms. And the trail always seems to lead to the new reality of media buying and planning: advertisers are targeting audiences – richly profiled, finely segmented, precisely located – and not chasing media. But what about the defining medium of the last century - TV? Is the last great bastion of massive media buys, upfronts, handshake deals and big ideas ready to get with the digital program? 

At OMMA Audience Targeting at Ad Week we take a special look at how emerging digital platforms may (or may not) impact TV media buying, programming and consumption in the future. Data and analytics are changing everything about media, and we explore how it is already impacting how media buyers think of TV, segment audiences and make buying decisions. The tectonic shift from media to audience buying has implications for all links in the media supply chain. Do we fully appreciate the depth of those implications…for agency economics, for producers, for service operators? Does the move to data-centric planning also move the centers of traditional power? And in the end addressable TV is seeping in at the edges of VOD, perhaps local avails? But will the greatest, most lucrative advertising medium ever invented really risk turning prime time over to algorithms? 

And while we highlight a tech and data driven future for TV at OMMA Audience Targeting, we also explore how all screens are now part of a challenging multi-screen engagement with audiences. More than tech and data, the move to follow audiences is driven by fragmented media consumption. 

In a world of fragmented media and attention, buyers have to find their target audience on any screen and at any time they can find them. At OMMA Audience Targeting we help put the pieces together. 

Is there a real shift in? all levels of the aspect of The data revolution, whether real or imagines, appears to be eating every medium it encounters, from Buying audiences and not just media has been the digital
