    Web Analytics Europa: You work in IP geolocation. Why would anyone be interested in using IP data for location information in today’s digitally connected world – where people are increasingly online and mobile?

    Kate Owen, VP Northern Europe: There are several reasons why IP-based geolocation is as important as ever in today’s connected world. It is used in advertising to target the most relevant audiences and assess the value of an impression prior to bidding. It is used to personalise websites, so the home or entry page automatically presents the correct language, currency and local store information. Further personalisation enables a retailer to promote a winter tyre service at exactly the right time in the right area of the country, for example, or use different marketing images by region to appeal to regional tastes or the local sense of humour. It is used to analyse patterns of behaviour, and optimise strategies based on this. The potential to make campaigns and content relevant to the consumer – and through their responses understand more about regional behaviours and differences – is enormous.

    Web Analytics Europa: But how do people feel about you tracing where they are?

    Kate Owen: Our data looks at the connection point to the public internet. It does not trace the individual user. We use only proprietary, technical infrastructure analysis techniques, anonymised feeds and permission-based cross-references. In this way, we can provide a wealth of information on the connection, the carrier and the location – enabling brands to target and personalise accurately and engage relevant consumers – without ever impeding on their privacy. Once the brand has the consumer’s attention, it can offer opt-in location-based services and promotions – incentivising the consumer to offer more personal information to enhance the relationship. So long as companies are mindful of the type and level of ongoing communication, this is a chance for valuable trust and relationship-building – and is beneficial to all parties. Consumers can rest assured they are not traced personally without permission.

    Web Analytics Europa: You mention accurate targeting – how accurate are you talking? And how does it work?

    Kate Owen: We first invented the concept of IP-based geotargeting in 1999. Our web spidering technology crawls the internet’s routing infrastructure to triangulate the geographic location of IP addresses. We then combine this with anonymised user information from our global partner network, and our latest-generation IP targeting utilises mobile device derived data gleaned from wifi access points and opt-in GPS co-ordinates from across the world. In this way, we’re able to further validate and fine-tune results to close gaps in the IP targeting space. This means more accurate postcode-level targeting – to within a 5-8 km radius – of traffic on all types of device, across the globe. To give a couple of examples, with the new mobile device and wifi input, we are able to identify over 30% more individual postcodes in Spain, 2.5 times more in Poland, and our responses in the Netherlands have increased from 3,300 postcodes to 290,000 – so our clients there can target with nearly 90 times greater precision than previously technically possible. These figures are growing all the time as new datasets are incorporated. Looking at Berlin in particular, the combination of our datasets has resulted in not only an uplift in the number of individual postcodes reported, but also a far more logical distribution of those postcodes across the city’s regions – indicating the level of granularity and accuracy now achievable.

    Web Analytics Europa: Is this level of precision really necessary?

    Kate Owen: This depends on the application. In licensing rights issues or regulatory compliance, country-level location information may suffice. Advertising and ecommerce, however, use analytics platforms, such as yours at Webtrekk, to pinpoint specific location and to understand patterns of behaviour based on regional interests, traditions and patterns of consumption. This enables optimal use of data and improved ROI. Companies can choose the level of IP geolocation detail they require, but the key is to ensure the IP intelligence provider regularly updates its IP routing infrastructure and uses multi-layered methodologies to enhance, check and analyse its accuracy. Having confidence in the quality of data – however detailed it might be – is imperative to its success.

  • Das Intelligence-Management Modell

    Erneut ein englisches White Paper - dieses Mal wird die visionäre Ausrichtung von CEOs, CDOs und Analytics-Managern diskutiert.

    Have you ever thought about the future of your title or position? Are you sure your company is ready for the data-dominated future?

    Digital is everywhere. Digital will be everywhere. Data will be everywhere. And even beyond. Nowadays the quote of a data-driven company is stressed very often through press, social media and in business talks. A company has to be data-driven to understand the relation between different channels and actions, even between departments and profit.

    Data-Driven vs. Data-Dominated
    The data-driven aspect is no longer reaching out far enough, when considering the future of a company. The company of the future will not be data-driven any longer, but definitely data-dominated. Saying out loud the word of “domination” can include positive and negative aspects.

    And this goes also for the data-dominated scenario. If a company will follow the data-aspects in all details, it will for sure achieve higher value for profit and revenue. Nevertheless, it might also cause damages in personal relations and harm managers currently being responsible for the company future and marketing action. Therefore, these managers need to act on the data-domination not to get lost behind.

    In order to have the right and relevant set up within the company the following Intelligence Management Model was created. It will guide the Upper Management through the upcoming challenges, the digitalisation of their business and open discussions on a change management process due to existing and incoming data. This way, the reader will acknowledge that data is not the new oil, but the new air. You need to have data, if your company wants to breathe, wants to survive. Without data the company will start to suffer and the missing oxygen will cause a negative future.

    Data is not the new Oil – it is the new Air
    Looking at the setup of the Intelligence Maturity Model we can define four geographical fields of data-competence:

    • Digital Power Users
    • Digital Weak Followers
    • Digital Strong Learners
    • Digital Decision Makers

    Intelligence Management Model 1

    All four fields are different in terms of technical competence in combination with a visionary & strategical performance.

    Four types of Digital Characters
    The Digital Power User is a pure technical associated person with a very strong technical and/or mathematical background. Very much capable of diving into the details of analytical and technical aspects of a subject, but less able to see the bigger picture for the company or for future aspects within the business eco-system.

    The Digital Weak Follower is a person that does not put enough effort in keeping the pace of the digital revolution all around the business aspects and the personal job profile aspects within his or her professional surrounding. Therefore, the ability to solve analytical questions or reaching out to business discussions around the future of a company is both not the ideal place for this person.

    The Digital Strong Learner understood and is able to perform on data & analytics, but is currently not enough related to those topics. Smart enough and educated enough, this person will catch up. The strong benefits of this profile are the knowledge around strategy and company or department vision, being able to pro-actively manage on future challenges.

    The Digital Decision Maker is a perfect combination of technical competence and visionary smartness. A profile very hard to find and needing lots of experience in both fields. Experience meaning a deep understanding, not necessarily a long-time career in both fields. Aiming for the section of technical competence and strategic expertise is a key aspect of this model. Both aspects show the ideal profile of the future manager, knowing that IT and Marketing also will grow together more and more.


    If we agree that the Digital Decision Maker is the key profile for the data-future, all other characters would aim to achieve this ideal combination of skills.

    What about Digital Maturity?
    This Intelligence Management Model can now be spiced up with an additional aspect: Digital Intelligence Maturity. Following this thought, it can be defined which profile has a strong analytical knowledge and the capability of being able to understand and solve Business Intelligence related questions and projects.

    Íntelligence Management Model 2

    The circles of the managers and employees in the chart above represent the current status of their technical knowledge, their visionary & strategical competence associated with their digital intelligence maturity.

    Looking at this scenario it is obvious to see that profiles have to change and will change in the future. This brings many positive aspects with it, meaning more competence on more shoulders in order to act faster, decide smarter and drive profit quicker. Most likely, the characters will all (try to) move into the top right corner, meaning Digital Decision Makers. This is a positive aspect and would transform the company and the managers into relevant players within the future market. As you can also see, the circles vary in their size, meaning the pure digital intelligence maturity will either have to increase or will decrease, depending on the profile and job description.

    Intelligence Management Model 3

    With these positive aspects, also a challenging phase within the company moves along: internal competition, reliable internal transfer of technical knowledge, (too) narrow focus of digital strategies etc.

    We will also be observing new positions and profiles popping up in this digital, data-dominated landscape: technical analysts as well as Chief Visionary Officers will join the stage of performance.
