The Digital Analytics Power Hour

Attend any conference for any topic and you will hear people saying after that the best and most informative discussions happened in the bar after the show. Ready any business magazine and you will find an article saying something along the lines of “Business Analytics is the hottest job category out there, and there is a significant lack of people, process and best practice.” In this case the conference was eMetrics, the bar was….multiple, and the attendees were Michael Helbling, Tim Wilson and Jim Cain (Co-Host Emeritus). After a few pints and a few hours of discussion about the cutting edge of digital analytics, they realized they might have something to contribute back to the community. This podcast is one of those contributions. Each episode is a closed topic and an open forum - the goal is for listeners to enjoy listening to Michael and Tim share their thoughts and experiences and, hopefully, take away something to try at work the next day.

In this listener-requested episode, the guys are joined by Jeff Chasin from Adobe, who, fortuitously, has written recently on this very topic! It's a power hour that comes in at just under 39 minutes!

Fifteen years ago, digital analytics tooling was pretty straightforward (something that looks at log files). In 2015, there are literally hundreds of tools that can be used to measure every aspect of a digital sales and marketing ecosystem. Most companies still think “Google or Adobe?” when making a digital analytics tool purchase. Are they missing out? With very special guest Hiten Shah from KISSmetrics, Michael, Tim and Jim talk a little tooling and a lot of trash - in almost 60 minutes.

The power of big data is a curious thing, Make a one man weep, make another man sing. Change a hawk to a little white dove. More than a feeling that's the power of big data. As always, Huey Lewis hits the nail on the head with this complex topic. What does the phrase actually mean? How can my company take advantage of it? Michael, Tim and Jim take on big data in episode five, and try to focus in on making this hard to pin down concept understandable and relevant. All this and more in one American hour, 46 Canadian minutes.
