Companies use multiple media to communicate their product effectively. ROI is usually taken as a measure of effectiveness of these advertising campaigns. However each channel investment might contribute independently to the consumer’s purchase decision making journey. As a result most of the measurements today have an overlap in assessing the impact between multiple channels.  This issue is what is referred to as swimlane measurement in advertising analytics.  As discussed by Kim Reed Perell 1, “Companies should wean off the last-click model within a single channel where ad spending and serving is unified. Then, companies should take small steps to ensure full funnel attribution within that channel.”A swimlane diagram or cross-functional diagram documents the steps in a process or workflow.  It groups these activities into swimlanes which are horizontal or vertical columns that contain all of the activities which fit into the category represented by that swimlane 2. In order to address the overlap in ROI computation as a result of swimlane effect, we thought we could integrate the swimlane diagram and map it to the consumer decision journey. With each media channel, the impact on the consumer would be on a particular stage of decision making. For example, viewing a billboard would drive awareness of the brand while a discount / point of purchase display would drive the final purchase action. The following diagram illustrates that:A similar approach was followed to identify process improvement opportunities using swim lane diagrams and integrating flow chart components into it in the Perkin Wills Research journal 3CONCLUSIONBig data is no longer a buzz anymore. The field has been constantly evolving with companies moving in quick pace to keep up with the rise of the industry. Analytics 2.0 has emerged and companies have adapted some of it into the system and now Analytics 3.04 has occupied the stage. Analytics 3.0 aims to extend the incorporation of analytics not just to the company processes, but also to the products/services it sells. With the increasing volumes of data there is a larger scope to understand the markets and consumers better at multiple levels and mine relevant insights for new product development. A live example of Analytics 3.0 implementation is the conceptualization of Software Innovation group by Bosch. As we move ahead we also intend to look at not just the conceptual models behind Analytics 2.0 but also understand how it is applied in the industry.
