    Pros

    The people are great. Senior leaders really care. The business is solid and the division structure is working. Acxiom and LiveRamp are a powerful combination in the marketplace.

    Cons

    A bit more process and rigor could help move decisions and initiatives along faster across divisional lines. Acxiom's division structure is just over a year old and teams are making progress in understanding how best to work across divisions, just need to ensure it continues and everyone in all divisions embrace new ways to do things.

    Advice to Management

    The big data space is complex and the Acxiom story can be too. Keep things simple and keep up the good communication.
