Kantar Media CIC 2015 Annual Summit in Shanghai

Filed in uncategorized 0 comments


Kantar Media CIC, China’s leading social business intelligence provider, held a spectacular Social Media and Digital Data Annual Summit yesterday in Shanghai, titled Next Generation Solution for Insights.
During this summit, Kantar Media CIC invited a number of well-known international brands, companies, agencies, and international management consulting firms to share and discuss our vision for how to utilize social and digital intelligence to distill insights to inform businesses decisions.

Since 2004, Kantar Media CIC has been helping clients to understand Chinese social media.CIC has earned its reputation in the social and digital business intelligence industry with over a decade of quality research and consulting.
In 2008, Kantar Media CIC published the authoritative and now iconic “China Social Media Landscape.” In the years since then, we have witnessed rapid changes and developments in the Chinese social media universe.
During the summit, Sam Flemming, founder and CEO of Kantar Media CIC, elaborated on the six most important changes to note about the Chinese social media landscape in 2015:
1. WeChat continues to dominate, while its role and influence evolves;
2. Weibo is still relevant, since it takes the pulse of what’s viral;
3. Interest communities have gone mobile;
4. New forms of expression emerge;
5. E-commerce reviews explode;
6. Retailer-generated content is a ‘fourth media’.



After establishing the basics about Chinese social media today, Polaris Yu, Regional Director of Research & Consulting at CIC, presented Accessible and Actionable Insight Innovation: “Brand Pulse” focusing on the beauty and cosmetics scene.
We are already well into the “WeChat Era,” and WeChat public accounts are becoming ever more important. Kantar Media CIC, as a leading social and digital business intelligence provider, has formed a complete solution to assistant brands to monitor their published articles on WeChat public accounts. Monica Zhao, Head of Research Innovation at CIC, shared about ‘Influence in the age of WeChat: Infant Nutrition Industry Study,’ based on a white paper produced in cooperation with Ogilvy & Mather.
Through this in-depth look at the Maternal and Child Nutrition industry through WeChat public accounts, it is clearly seen that there are three different, yet complementary types of WeChat public accounts—Media, Brands, and KOLs—each with their own focus and sharing strategies. The commonality among these 3 different media types is content centered on infant nutrition. They all work to improve information access about pregnancy care; multimedia and cross-industry content is more popular.
Afterward Monica’s presentation, Theresa Loo, the Executive Director of Ogilvy & Mather China, was invited by Kantar Media CIC to talk more about “influence in the Age of WeChat” with Monica and the audience in a panel discussion.
As Big Data continues to grow in importance, Kantar Media CIC will expand its field of research from merely social media to include all digital media, including search, e-commerce, payments, and so on. In so doing, we will witness the transition from social data to big data.
At this summit meeting, Sam Flemming and Arthur Wang, respectively CEO and COO of Kantar Media CIC, looked forward to the next generation of Social Big Data. CIC aims to help brands to gain better consumer insights using Big Data analysis.
Meanwhile, Andy Wu, Head of R&D Dept. of Kantar Media CIC, explained the technical foundation of CIC’s insights, which includes Natural Language Processing and Machine Learning.Combined with more than a decade of research and consulting experience across a wide range of industries, these technologies greatly decrease the time costs of data collection, storage, processing, and analysis, while also improving the accuracy of measures such as sentiment & semantic analysis and so on. Moreover, Kantar Media CIC also supports multi-language data processing and analysis, which can automatically recognize more than 82 languages.
