ClickZ and Efectyv Marketing have launched an industry-first survey on Convergence Analytics for digital marketers, that will be expanded into a report.

Take the
Vendor Survey

Take the
Practitioner Survey

Based partly on the survey responses from ClickZ's audience, the inaugural report will be an indispensable guide to Convergence Analytics, the most important development in digital marketing in the past decade. The report will be created by industry pioneers Rand Schulman and Andrew Edwards of Efectyv Marketing, in partnership with ClickZ.

Due to a related cluster of changes in the digital analytics field, ClickZ and Efectyv Marketing felt it made sense to review them in more depth. Among the changes are the customer demand for greater ability to see data from different sources in a single view; the increasing importance of data correlation; the lack of clarity between "business intelligence" and digital analytics; and perhaps most importantly, the emerging cadre of tool vendors working to address these changes.

"Because of the combination of factors pointing to an identifiable new type of data intelligence practice, we felt it was appropriate to call this nascent field 'Convergence Analytics,'" says Edwards, co-founder at Efectyv Marketing.

As a bonus to readers, all respondents of this survey will receive an advance summary of the report. In addition, ClickZ will also be giving away two tickets to SES New York (the winner will be drawn at random and announced on publication of the report).

Follow the links above to find the brief questionnaire's on the topic. Surveys are split into 'vendor' and 'practitioner' categories, so please participate as appropriate.
