    And what is the "metric" that Nielsen's Cloud will employ to tell us about cross platform and device audiences? Has Nielsen figured out a reliable method for defining and measuring "viewing"?Or are we going to merely record device usage, using electronic means, and assume that "viewing" takes place every second when a device is in use---including the commercials?

    Isn't this what Adobe does? So, if Nielsen is now a competitor, what does this mean for Adobe's relationship with Nielsen?

    Looks like Nielsen is starting to offer their own ad tech stack to their clients, to expand teh clout of eXelate. So they are now competing with ADdobe to some extent. We'll have to see how this devlops over time: i believe from what I've read elsewhere that this is something of a beta or pilot for now, so it will be refined further based on results.

    I assume that all Nielsen's Cloud will do is provide "audience" data to its subscribers for a variety of electronic media. So, it's actually, nothing more than a data source, with various statistical applications and tallying mechanisms for access and manipulation of the information. Or am I wrong? Anyone an Nielsen care to clarify?

    Make that "at" Nielsen, not "an" Nielsen. Sigh!

    This is also a response to IRI's liquid data.  It also reflects the inevitable integration of marketing research and digital ad tech that is data driven.  we are watching the future of MR unfold.

    Joel, you may be correct, however there's good data and there's potentially very misleading data. If the metric Nielsen winds up with is device usage as a surrogate for viewing, I'm afraid that this represents a great leap backward---even if the data fows smoothly.

    ---er, make that "Flows" not "fows". Grumble, mutter, etc.!!
