    The consumer packaged goods (CPG) industry has seen tremendous change driven by media fragmentation, channel fragmentation and rapid shifts in consumer behavior. Manufacturers and retailers in this industry require strategies and actions that are driven by insight. That insight must be derived from very granular and timely data & information. Chris von der Linden with IRI will talk about the challenges these changes have presented for the industry and show how clients are using powerful tools to solve for them.
