The Neustar MarketShare integrated measurement and analytics solution combines both the offline marketing tactics and the non-media drivers (e.g. weather patterns, economic indicators, etc.) in order to help clients examine the true value of their digital marketing performance.
As with all Forrester Waves, vendors were rated based on the capabilities of their current offering, their strategy including the broad partnerships in data and the ad-tech ecosystem, and breadth of market presence. To evaluate vendors and their products against criteria for the Wave, Forrester analysts gather details of product qualifications through a combination of lab evaluations, questionnaires, demos, and/or discussions with client references. Forrester sets default weightings to reflect their analysis of the needs of large user companies and then score the vendors based on a clearly defined scale.
