Programmatic: There are no stupid questions

Programmatic: There are no stupid questions

I first came across the term “programmatic” in 2014, working at Philips global HQ in digital innovation.

They were one of the first programmatic companies I came across (and were acquired by GroupM in 2016).

Progression of Australian Digital Measurement

Progression of Australian Digital Measurement

So 2016 was an interesting year for digital measurement to say the least. There was some well-deserved questioning, some scrutiny that comes with an increased market share and a lot of people confusing metrics and their meaning. Australians spent 72 hours online on PCs, phones and tablets in November 2016. Regardless of whether you agree or disagree on recent criticism levelled at digital metrics, the answer is not to retreat to an earlier era but to find new solutions and add extra layers of assurance that are relevant to current consumer behaviour.
