Google courts enterprise marketers with launch of Analytics 360 Suite

Google has unveiled Analytics 360 Suite, “a complete measurement platform” targeted at enterprise marketers.

According to Google VP of Analytics, Display and Video Products, Paul Muret, Google Analytics 360 Suite is designed to give marketers “a complete view of the consumer journey and then make sense of it all.”

Once they have insight, Google aims to help marketers drive results.

Is the CPA model holding real-time bidding back?

Despite the fact that real-time bidding is a complex and sometimes confusing space, media buyers and sellers alike continue to flock to RTBs, a trend that experts don’t believe will end any time soon.

Real-time bidding, of course, isn’t the end-all and be-all of digital advertising, and there are numerous areas for concern.

But is the entire model for how ads are bought and sold via RTBs broken?

RTB expected to grow significantly, but concerns linger: report
