Executive Summary

Marketers are all pushing for an omnichannel, holistic view of their audiences, but that vision requires integrating audience insights from three core areas: TV, digital and in-store. Integrating these three channels, however, poses substantial challenges.

  • The integration of disparate data sets, systems, vendors and technologies poses obvious challenges. At many companies, the need for organizational overhaul is less obvious, yet also vital.
  • Companies moving in the right direction are deliberate in choosing the first-, second- and third-party data assets best-suited to offer insight into digital, TV and in-store actions. They are also investing in tools aimed at helping to map their audiences’ identities across all of these channels, as well as their digital devices.
  • The arrival of addressable TV has led to an explosion in the number of data providers and vendors offering marketers insight, but limited access to that data—and ongoing issues with scaling it—reduce integration practices. On the offline front, access to both transactional and location-based data is on the rise, and so too is the number of providers marketers must choose from.
  • In spite of these challenges, marketers are moving ahead with combining TV and in-store data with their existing digital audience insights.

"Demand for true cross-channel integration is high, but today few marketers are capable of such endeavors. A September 2016 poll conducted by omnichannel solutions provider BlueVenn found just 28.2% of US and UK marketers were able to connect channels for a true omnichannel view using customer data."
