Big Data = New Insights = Better Results


I’ve often quoted my grandfather, who once said that the only difference between fundraising today versus his time was technology. That was about 10 years ago. Today, that technology has created new industries, products and massive amounts of data. He must have been right, because 90% of the data in the world today has been created in the past two years alone.

And, according to research by McKinsey from this article, the amount of data in our world has been exploding, and analyzing large data sets — so-called big data — will become a key basis of competition, underpinning new waves of productivity growth, innovation, and consumer insight. Leaders in every sector will have to grapple with the implications of big data, not just a few data-oriented managers. The increasing volume and detail of information captured by enterprises, the rise of multimedia, social media, and the Internet will fuel exponential growth in data for the foreseeable future.

At Grizzard, we totally agree, and that is why we have invested in a solution to help our clients meet today’s challenges. 

I am pleased to announce the launch of MOSAIC donor360. This is a new, state-of-the-art marketing data warehouse optimized for analytics, reporting and campaign management. It provides data intelligence a step ahead of and beyond what is currently available within the fundraising industry.

We partnered with our sister company, Targetbase, to build this new platform. Targetbase has been recognized by Forrester Research for its expertise in understanding consumer data and translating that data into intelligence. They have built similar systems for clients like Gatorade, Acura, Honda and Tempur-pedic.
