Integrating analytical capabilities from across the company, Kantar Analytics Practice will combine the world’s most in-depth understanding of consumers with a deep analytics toolkit developed over four decades of solving the most difficult sales, brand, media, and marketing problems.

Earlier this year, and under pressure from management consultancies like Accenture and Deloitte, Kantar merged four of its brands – Kantar Added Value, Kantar Futures, Kantar Vermeer and Kantar Retail – to form one new group, Kantar Consulting. 

Commenting on the launch, Eric Salama, CEO Kantar, added: “Less than half (44%) of advertisers believe they have the right, actionable data. Clients feel data rich but insights poor and impact short. Kantar is unique in having the complete view of consumers across the entire demand cycle: the way they live, feel, shop, watch and post. Combining our insights with data from across any client’s organization can unlock deeper insights that fuel growth. “
