Advances in tracking across marketing channels make it possible to properly credit each channel for its contribution to a variety of outcomes. But this can be logistically and analytically complex. In practice, getting value from attribution analysis is often more about continuous progress along a thoughtfully-developed path than about a destination. Cesar Brea, author of “Marketing and Sales Analytics” (Pearson FT Press, 2014) and founder of Force Five Partners, will moderate a panel discussion including seasoned executives and leading vendors working in this space.
