Media agencies under increasing pressure to optimize digital campaign performance and return for their healthcare clients have a new, real-time analytics tool – Digital Impact for Agencies™ (DIFA™) from Crossix Solutions. A breakthrough in direct-to-consumer analytics, Digital Impact for Agencies is the first cloud-based online measurement and reporting platform specifically designed to support agencies tasked with monitoring and improving digital advertising campaigns. The new solution measures media campaigns across the patient journey, from information-seeking to prescription fill, to provide agencies with a more powerful way to optimize campaigns in comparison to traditional measurement approaches.
DIFA is powered by Crossix Digital Impact™, a proven solution that has measured billions of online ad impressions for Top 10 pharmaceutical companies and leading media agencies. The new platform is built upon Crossix’s proprietary HIPAA-compliant methodology, which leverages actual consumer Rx and OTC behavioral data. DIFA now fully caters to the unique needs of agencies and harnesses the hallmarks of modern cloud technology – flexibility, immediacy and self-service accessibility – to provide early and frequent performance updates.
“As the digital channel continues to evolve and pharma brand clients demand greater accountability for their campaigns, media agencies need a more sophisticated way to show and prove value,” said Dan Stein, senior vice president of Analytics Services & Product Strategy for Crossix. “Digital Impact delivers meaningful data, beyond click and brand website engagement metrics that drastically underrepresent the true value of a campaign. With DIFA, agencies can now leverage actual behavioral and sales impact metrics, and do so while campaigns are still in market.”
Through the cloud, DIFA provides a one-stop shop for Rx and OTC-based campaign metrics at the campaign and publisher level, including:
- Campaign delivery – including the volume of impressions and unique individuals exposed to the campaign over time broken out by age, gender and geo-based data
- Audience profile – including the percentage that is treating in the therapeutic category or on brand
- Campaign impact – including doctor and pharmacy visits, conversion to brand and other ROI metrics
“These are exactly the types of metrics that will help me to optimize my campaigns,” said Tina Breithaupt, senior media director for Intouch Solutions. “And it’s even better that I will be able to access them online more quickly. The expanded insight this data brings will translate to increased client value.”

The Internet of Things will challenge the status quo of how IT and development organizations operate. Or will it? Certainly the fog layer of IoT requires special insights about data ontology, security and transactional integrity. But the developmental challenges are the same: People, Process and Platform and how we integrate our thinking to solve complicated problems. In his session at 19th Cloud Expo, Craig Sproule, CEO of Metavine, demonstrated how to move beyond today's coding paradigm and sh...

Today we can collect lots and lots of performance data. We build beautiful dashboards and even have fancy query languages to access and transform the data. Still performance data is a secret language only a couple of people understand. The more business becomes digital the more stakeholders are interested in this data including how it relates to business. Some of these people have never used a monitoring tool before. They have a question on their mind like “How is my application doing” but no id...

DevOps is being widely accepted (if not fully adopted) as essential in enterprise IT. But as Enterprise DevOps gains maturity, expands scope, and increases velocity, the need for data-driven decisions across teams becomes more acute. DevOps teams in any modern business must wrangle the ‘digital exhaust’ from the delivery toolchain, "pervasive" and "cognitive" computing, APIs and services, mobile devices and applications, the Internet of Things, and now even blockchain. In this power panel at @...

In IT, we sometimes coin terms for things before we know exactly what they are and how they’ll be used. The resulting terms may capture a common set of aspirations and goals – as “cloud” did broadly for on-demand, self-service, and flexible computing. But such a term can also lump together diverse and even competing practices, technologies, and priorities to the point where important distinctions are glossed over and lost.

All clouds are not equal. To succeed in a DevOps context, organizations should plan to develop/deploy apps across a choice of on-premise and public clouds simultaneously depending on the business needs. This is where the concept of the Lean Cloud comes in - resting on the idea that you often need to relocate your app modules over their life cycles for both innovation and operational efficiency in the cloud. In his session at @DevOpsSummit at19th Cloud Expo, Valentin (Val) Bercovici, CTO of Soli...

Regulatory requirements exist to promote the controlled sharing of information, while protecting the privacy and/or security of the information. Regulations for each type of information have their own set of rules, policies, and guidelines. Cloud Service Providers (CSP) are faced with increasing demand for services at decreasing prices. Demonstrating and maintaining compliance with regulations is a nontrivial task and doing so against numerous sets of regulatory requirements can be daunting task...
