|COVID Metrics, the good, the bad, and using them effectively||Gary Angel, Digital Mortar||As digital analytics professionals, we spend a LOT of time thinking about metrics. What makes them good. How they get misused. Covid has made metrics front and center for LOTS of people – including politicians and journalists. And most of them haven’t done a very good job using or thinking them through. We’ll talk through the common Covid metrics and concepts used (death rates, case rates, testing rates, positivity rates, transmission rates, vaccine efficiency, vaccination rates, herd immunity, etc.) from the perspective of what’s good and bad about them, how they get misused, and – if we were building a dashboard to give to the public or a decision-maker – how it would look. This is a chance to bring your professional expertise to bear on a different sort of problem, but one we’ve all had to think about far too much!|

Attendees will join in a conversation about different architectures and the benefits and challenges of each. Come share and learn how CDP strategies will need to evolve as third-party cookies fade into memory and mobile identifiers become more sparse.|

Partner Platform data is going to tell you one thing while Site Analytics data will tell you another. Multi-Touch Attribution will provide yet another different view. And then there’s MMM which is literally from a different world (tops-down incrementality). Finally, you could break the tie with a Randomized Controlled Test but how can you execute it in the messy world of digital media? So how do you sort through all of the lies and confidently answer your CMO & VP or Marketing? Join us for an exploration about how to navigate the world of Attribution|
