Recap: Automation with Autos

April 24, 2014, Los Angeles Hallmark Data Systems, known as a media industry leader in database management, subscription fulfillment and marketing solutions, partnered with the Association of Audience Marketing Professionals (AAMP), to host an executive forum “Automation with Autos” on April 24th at the Petersen Automotive Museum in Los Angeles. Scott Vaughan, CMO of Integrate, moderated a lively discussion of what “big data” actually is.


A method, not a goal

Big data relates to profitability. Having big data is not the goal, but instead a method to move toward profitability. Big data must show results if it’s to continue to receive executive support. Big data doesn’t only involve data collection, but also curation and analysis of the data, to ensure the data can inform business decisions.


Big data doesn’t need to be complicated, it only needs to be actionable. The key is to turn data into insights and know what data points will drive value and which points are actionable. Even small points of data can be used for personalized campaigns, increasing engagement and conversion.

Useful for product development

Big data doesn’t only need to be used for marketing campaigns; it can be used for product development. Data-driven product development requires the three Vs – volume, velocity, and variety.

Differs from traditional data

Traditional data provides linear correlations. Big data analysis can show unexpected correlations based on relational data and differs from traditional data on its scale and velocity. Behavioral data has velocity, and is one characteristic of big data.

Where to start

To lead up to the big data conversation in the workplace, bring analytics to the meeting to explain why you recommend a particular business decision. Start small – pick one area, a market group or sector, and do basic analytics. Supplement in-house demographic data with behavioral data, to move toward relational data points. Hire people with the right skill sets – communication, analytic and data collection skills with a strong digital data focus (such as retail).

The Executive Forum was followed by a docent led tour of the Petersen Automotive Museum.

Scott Vaughan, Chief Marketing Officer


Big Data is often misunderstood and made so complex, we as marketers and media executives avoid it or don’t tap into its real potential. With all the data and technology we have to work with, it’s time to get started and turbo charge our efforts. Our audience, customers and stakeholders are ready – Are you?
