Sponsored by Businesswire

a premium creative, marketing and technology company, announced today
that it will offer marketing and business intelligence executives
greater data impact by providing on-demand access to over 1,300 analytic
talents through an exclusive partnership with Big Chalk Analytics.

The partnership, effective immediately, will provide organizations with
data analytics and insights tailored to specific business
challenges—allowing them to better understand their customers and boost
their overall competitive advantage.

Now more than ever, organizations have exponentially increasing amounts
of data accumulating in real-time. As the market becomes more complex
and customers demand a more personalized experience, translating this
data into real-time, actionable insights is critical.

“Understanding customer interactions across all touchpoints remains the
#1 challenge for marketers—and too often Big Data yields little
meaningful insight,” said Patrick Venetucci, CEO of MERGE. “With Big
Chalk Analytics, our clients now have access to world-class analytic
specialists capable of generating strategic insights, new idea pathways,
and business impact. We’re proud to be a leader in the way the industry
delivers data analytics.”

“Successfully leveraging data in practical and actionable ways requires
analytic rigor, thoughtful interpretation, and sophisticated execution,”
said Scott Moore, co-founder of Big Chalk Analytics. “Big Chalk’s data
analytic and technological expertise will be naturally complemented by
MERGE’s ability to help translate powerful insights into meaningful
programs, working collaboratively to overcome operational,
organizational and governance hurdles. This partnership is not only a
win for both parties but especially so for clients.”

Alongside access to world-class, strategic analytics talent, the
On-Demand offering is flexible and data agnostic and offers the
opportunity for access to emerging areas of analytic specialization.
