They can find their audiences watching shows and during dayparts that traditional data never imagined. The implications are profound. The buy side can now find value and efficiencies in places sellers never anticipated. The buyers now know more about the audience than the seller. How are media buying decisions now being made, and how does it disrupt the relationship among seller, buyer and distributor?

In 2012, the advanced analytics techniques of The Obama for America campaign helped put data-driven TV buying on the map. Ever since, both parties and an explosion of political marketing firms have conducted a highstakes arms race of data and tech in preparation for 2016. How did these players test their system in the 2014 cycle? What did they learn, and what can other marketing categories learn yet again from the marketing segment that started us talking about advanced TV approaches?
