Joe Stanhope and I are excited to announce the publication of The Forrester Wave™: Marketing Measurement And Optimization Solutions, Q1 2022. This report evaluates the top 10 vendors’ current offering, strategy, and market presence for their unified measurement and optimization solutions. The 2022 Forrester Marketing Measurement Wave evaluation will help B2C marketers select the best measurement vendors as market forces such as data deprecation and the fallout from the COVID-19 pandemic require marketers to have more comprehensive measurement approaches.

The evaluation revealed two key insights: 

  • Shifts in data availability, restrictive “data rules” imposed by closed advertising ecosystems such as Facebook and Google, and new privacy regulations force both marketers and measurement providers to rethink legacy marketing measurement approaches. Marketing measurement and optimization (MMO) vendors are focused on partnerships across closed ecosystems and more flexible measurement approaches to ensure precision and accuracy because of the changing ad tech and data ecosystems.
  • Marketers require fast, scalable, and flexible tools to manage larger budgets, enhance collaboration, and deliver faster insights. Vendors are investing in tool enhancements but also bulking up services offerings to address a broader range of business questions and provide change management support.
