Identity Resolution Group: Demystifying Data Cleanrooms

  • By Claudia Chang (Clear Channel Outdoor, Young Pros Officer)
  • ARF Cross-Platform Measurement Council

Data clean room technology has had a place in the advertising ecosystem for years but has become increasingly prominent in today’s landscape where major disruptions in data governance and privacy are emerging. Data cleanroom companies provide environments for two or more companies to share first-party data in a neutral, secure, privacy-compliant manner. They are used for activation, media measurement, and insights. At this event, Working Group Chair Sable Mi (VP of Analytics, Epsilon) moderated a powerful discussion with guests Alya Adelman (Director of Product, Blockgraph), Devon DeBlasio (VP of Product Marketing, InfoSum), Matt Karasick (Chief Product Officer, Habu), and Alysia Melisaratos (Head of Solutions Engineering, LiveRamp) to unpack the value that data clean rooms can provide.
