Rise of Analytics: Impacting the Editorial Process?

#sxsw #editdata

The rapid proliferation of choices at the readers' fingertips for accessing content has made the editor's job more complicated than ever. Behavioral analytics will uncover when readers want what content, where they are when they want it, and if they want it on their phones, tablets, or PCs. Understanding user behavior across these platforms will not only guide the editor on how to deliver digital and mobile content but also offer new insights on how to deliver traditional, offline content to improve the readers' overall experience with the brand.
