Sample text

The combination of the software developer and the integrated database vendor makes it possible to put considerable knowledge about the data into the software. This permits the software to move from a tool to a solution package; from a system that the manager can use to obtain information useful in solving a problem to a system that solves problems. Integrated Data The new data integrates data from several sources: scanners, store-audits, advertising monitoring, coupon redemption, and scanner-panels.

Mergers In 1980, the marketing information industry was characterized by multiple data vendors and separate software vendors. Each vendor had a piece of the total data available. Given the different sources of the data, the software vendors developed systems that would take any and all data, resulting in very general software that did not contain intelligence about the data. This software was a tool with which the manager could design and produce reports, and perform rudimentary analyses. In the early-to-mid part of this decade, the software and data vendors went on a merger spree, and there is no reason to believe that the end is in sight.

This results in a database containing data on variables such as: units distribution price trial display repeat ad feature depth of repeat coupons inter-purchase time Era I databases tend to contain only outcome or results data (units, cases, distribution). Era II databases contain data on factors that may cause the result measure to change. These integrated data allow the manager to move from problem and opportunity identification to analysis of the factors that caused the problems and opportunities.
