With a combination of IT, data analysis, creative skills and business expertise that treats marketing as a science TESCO (one of the UK’s largest grocery chains) has been parsing what people buy for years. Now, they’re matching it up with how they surf.

Evan and Alan will discuss mobile measurement hurdles, best practices, and strategies that can increase mobile impact as well as the overall success of cross channel campaigns.
