Our Media Planning group at the Nielsen Company develops innovative marketing decision software systems for brands, media/creative agencies and media owners around the world. One of our flagship products, Nielsen Media Impact (NMI), supports clients in multi-media planning, by answering questions such as: How much advertising should clients spend on TV vs. online? Which media vehicles should clients use to reach consumers for whom their product is relevant? What is the most efficient cross-media plan considering certain objectives? Which media assets provide additional reach or frequency?
In order to answer all these questions, Media Impact is digesting multiple data streams from various sources and transforming those into easy-to-use reports and analysis.
