Piano -- a provider of analytics, personalization and subscription services for publishers and other brands -- has debuted a privacy-centric analytics tool to provide brands with a single source of reporting data, the company announced last week.
The new offering, Piano Analytics, is designed to help companies become aligned on “one set of decisions,” says Trevor Kaufman, CEO of Piano.
Kaufman notes that up until now, “there has been a virtual monopoly of legacy analytics tools that have been using bad data — they are too complicated and too limited to adapt to today's sophisticated digital channels."
The company feels it is challenging Google and Adobe head-on by providing compliant, portable data.
The new launch is a result of Piano's acquisition of France-based AT Internet, a European provider of digital analytics and contextual data services, in March of this year.
