For the first time ever, the Big Four U.S. banking institutions—JPMorgan Chase, Bank of America, Citigroup, and Wells Fargo—saw their combined assets exceed $10 trillion, which represents more than half the U.S. total. Mid-size banks face increasing competition from these mega banks that have been investing for over a decade in fintech solutions such as payments platforms, mobile banking, investment apps and automation of financial services and processes.

Marketing Operations emerged in 2000, driven by rising pressure on marketing to provide greater efficiency, transparency and accountability. The function was officially recognized by analyst firm IDC in 2005 (source: MarTech Advisor).
Since that time, the Marketing Operations function has evolved and expanded, with wide ranging responsibility, from aligning IT, marketing and sales, to strategic planning and budgeting, process development, professional development, and marketing systems and data.
When a marketing analyst begins the quest to build a predictive model for a marketing campaign using past data to forecast future actions, it should be simple, right?
Use past data to predict future actions. It’s science.
But this is where the art comes in -- the past data you choose to utilize will impact your predictions. Think of your customers as Crayons, how do you sort through the box of 64 to know which crayons to use?

Marketers invest significant time and resources in creating campaigns they hope will engage their target audiences, increase sales and grow their businesses. But, of course, in today’s marketing environment, hope is not enough. Marketers need to be able to make confident marketing decisions about how they invest their marketing dollars – which channels to use and when to use them – in order to achieve the greatest return on their investment.
As you may have heard, Direct Options recently became part of the Vya family. This gives us the opportunity to share our customer data management and analytics experience and knowledge with the growing community of Vya friends and followers. I am thrilled to be able to kick off this knowledge sharing with some thoughts on what I believe is the essential element of any data-driven marketing strategy: usable data.

Like so many businesses, Vya has been assessing the longer-term impacts of COVID-19 – for our own business and for our clients. While we can’t fully predict what will happen next, we do believe that in a post-COVID economy, you can’t just go back to being the company you were before 2020.
Even though 2020 may feel like the year of “going nowhere,” the truth is, many organizations are moving in new directions with speeds and efficiencies never seen before. The question for many is whether the crisis-driven changes they are making are temporary, or will they last as companies emerge from the challenges brought on by the pandemic?
