Presented by

Benjamin Spiegel

Advertising and marketing are in a constant state of change. With the rise of mobile, social and IOT, the world of advertising is undergoing a dramatic change. In order to create meaningful conversations with today’s consumers, brands and agencies need to leverage the power of this connected, data-driven world. Benjamin will highlight some of the recent innovations at the intersection of programming, data and advertising and how they are achieved with the use of open source and commercial software as well as web services:

  • KNIME
  • Java
  • Spotfire
  • Tableau
  • Python
  • Amazon
  • Google
  • Facebook

Meeting Sponsor: MMI Agency

At MMI, we leverage the power of the connected social world to engineer meaningful conversations between brands and their consumers. We do this by diving deep into the digital footprints of these consumers in order to gain relevant insights into their behavior: the places they go, the things they say, and what really drives them. Mapping these human truths and emotions enables us to craft conversations that will truly affect consumer behavior. By combining human understanding with specific actionable insights, we connect with consumers who matter in the moments that matter to them. We orchestrate lasting relationships by creating meaningful conversations and experiences between great brands and their consumers.

Suggested Parking:

Park across the street in the parking garage on Elgin on the 7th floor, taking a parking receipt as you enter the parking garage. Parking is free after 7:00 PM, so you won't have to pay as you exit. Take the elevator to the 3rd floor of the parking garage and walk across the sky bridge. The HJUG meeting will be on the 2nd floor on the left just before you reach the elevator bank.
