NEW YORK--(BUSINESS WIRE)--
Acxiom® (Nasdaq: ACXM), the leading enterprise data, analytics and
software-as-a-service company, today introduced a new way for marketers,
agencies and publishers to define, manage and reach best audiences
across online and offline channels. Acxiom Audience Operating System™
(AOS) is unique because it enables marketers to connect all types of
traditionally disconnected data and – for the first time – to create a
truly singular view of the consumer. AOS derives better insights to help
marketers more clearly understand their audiences and more accurately
anticipate what will appeal to them. This creates more effective
marketing campaigns and ultimately, happier consumers.
“Consumers are being bombarded by irrelevant advertising at every turn.
This isn’t the result of marketers having too little data. Rather, it’s
because marketers are drowning in too much data – data that’s
disconnected and siloed, creating disconnected experiences,” said Scott
Howe, Acxiom’s President and CEO. “Today, for the first time in history
through Acxiom AOS & our AOS-Authorized partner applications, marketers
are able to fully leverage all kinds of data – first-party,
transactional, digital, social, mobile and other audience information –
to provide more meaningful and relevant experiences for their customers
and prospects. Acxiom is on a mission to end advertising waste and
noise, and AOS is the answer.”
AOS is comprised of three key layers that enable 1:1 marketing at scale:
“The true mark of sophistication is simplicity, and the lack of it has
been a critical impediment to enabling Big Data to deliver game-changing
value,” said Phil Mui, Acxiom’s Chief Product and Engineering Officer.
“That ends today with AOS, a platform that is able to ingest data from
everywhere and apply it to targeted audiences anywhere through an
intuitive, unified interface. Importantly, AOS is absolutely privacy
compliant and keeps privacy promises made to consumers by us,
advertisers, publishers and all participants in this ecosystem. We have
designed solutions that re-create machine logic and meaningful
algorithms that are so easy to use, anyone can leverage them to quickly
derive transformative insights. And we purposefully rejected a closed,
vertically integrated solution stack in favor of secure yet open APIs
that allow trusted partners to innovate with us and capitalize on the
wisdom and energy of the ecosystem. With AOS, we never intended to build
a better mousetrap. Instead, we chose to breed a world-class cat.”
