  • 8. Anatomy of a access control system

      • Allow instant definition new products and qualifying users
      • Provide context-sensitive messaging and prompts

  • 10. Challenges for implementing paywalls
    • Combination of CMS and ACS systems can allow rapid development and deployment of new products but significant barriers remain
      • Inability to identify and market to key targets – inefficient data management
      • Integration with third-party fulfilment houses
      • Delivery of transactional data to and from back office systems
      • Control of ‘master’ customer data
    • The links between e-commerce and fulfilment are often fundamentally flawed or broken
      • Products are often purchased in real-time but delivery is delayed by batch processing issues or offline validation
      • Data obtained during the purchase process is entirely isolated from other systems
  • 11. The solution: An integrated AD approach
  • 12. Technical Platform
    • Resilient twin data centres with proven SAAS Cloud Platform Architecture
    • One codebase, but each client has own secure database
    • .Net development environment
    • Utilise 3 rd party components
    • Acumen/De-normalisation approach for Marketing reports
  • 13. Approach to Audience Development
    • Acceptance that a single unified data source is unworkable
      • Multiple generators of data
    • Instead put data integration at the core of the approach not as a peripheral activity
    • Develop ‘master’ data concept by defining core elements
      • People
      • Organisations
      • Locations
      • Brands
    • Apply statistical data profiling to understand the data to guarantee quality regardless of source
    • Data matching replaces data mapping
  • 14.  
  • 15. Audience development tools: Acumen
    • Web analytics are necessary but not sufficient
      • Important for volume metrics
      • Provide a common currency
    • However, even market leaders struggle to answer ‘real world’ questions
    • Acumen utilises the AD architecture to provide behavioural tracking across a wide range of variables
    • Tracker reports create actionable intelligence
  • 16. A data-driven product development cycle
  • 17.
