    Planning for the future: Should you consider bringing programmatic in-house

    Marketing Interactive published an article from the Digital Marketing Asia Singapore 2018 conference, where SzeKi Sim, Head – Brand, SGInnovate, participated as a panellist for the panel titled ‘Brand Safety and the Zero-Tolerance Imperative’. Despite the huge opportunity that programmatic marketing presents, panellists say that it is not necessarily for everyone. Adam Cordner, Senior Solution Consultant at Domo, said that at the end of the day, marketers need to understand their brands, know what needles have an impact on the brand, and to be clear on what they want to measure. Panellists also added that the journey between an agency and a brand needs to now form into a collaboration. “I think the agency-brand experience is not a master-slave type of a relationship. It is a partnership where they are both vested towards the same purpose,” said SzeKi.
