Aims of the SIG

The developments and convergence of technology have generated a complex digital eco-system that creates, shares and processes more than 2.5 quintillion bytes of data every day. Organisations and individuals are generating a vast digital footprint that is transforming not only the nature and role of business but also the fundamental way humans interact in modern society.

Consumers have been empowered, they expect quality and convenience from each interaction they have with individuals and organisations through different systems and platforms. At the same time, digital transformations are creating a high demand for analytics for all business areas and marketing is playing a critical role. Digital marketing is enabling organisations to personalise consumer experiences and increase meaningful engagement, creating vast sources of data to better understand their consumers. However, developing an analytics mind-set to see business problems from a data perspective is a complex challenge.

This SIG aims to become a hub for academics and digital marketing practitioners to embrace a data-driven approach relevant to the evolving digital economy.
