New Research on the Future of Digital Marketing:
Identity, Collaboration, Permission, and Privacy


Winterberry Group White Paper Leverages Wiland’s Expertise in
Privacy-Compliant Data Collaboration


NIWOT, CO—January 19, 2021—Wiland, Inc. the largest independent cooperative database platform in the U.S., today announced its participation as a Premier Sponsor of the Winterberry Group’s new research paper Collaborative Data Solutions: Data and Identity in the Era of Permission. Focusing on major shifts in data-driven marketing in 2021 and beyond, this study explores a variety of ways for brands, agencies, publishers, and data providers to collaborate in the areas of sharing, protecting, activating, and monetizing privacy-compliant data assets.

The pressures leading to this evolution come from multiple sources: the deprecation of third-party cookies, increased data privacy regulation, and concerns about the provenance of third-party data. According to the white paper, the path to success lies in moving the entire digital ecosystem towards collaborative, permission-based, privacy-compliant data solutions.

“At Wiland, we see the power of data collaboration firsthand,” said Mark Kinney, Wiland EVP, Product Management. “In a blind market study, our clients reported that they see on average 55% better ROI from Wiland cooperative database audiences compared to other sources. Our thousands of clients benefit from audiences predictively modeled from the largest set of individual-level spending and interest-intensity signals ever assembled. The Winterberry Group’s research reinforces our belief in the power of collaborative data solutions. We anticipate accelerated adoption of these solutions by more organizations in the years ahead.”
