CINCINNATI, Ohio -- Nielsen Catalina Solutions (NCS), the leader in helping consumer packaged goods (CPG) advertisers improve return on advertising spend by linking what consumers watch with what they buy, announced an agreement with FourthWall Media, the largest independent source of cable set-top box data. With access to FourthWall Media’s anonymous TV viewing data, Nielsen Catalina Solutions will greatly expand the size of its single-source dataset — delivering more robust, granular insights to CPG marketers.

Nielsen Catalina Solutions links advertising with retail sales by integrating data from Nielsen’s gold-standard TV panel and cable set-top box homes with shopper data from over 70 million households. The addition of FourthWall Media data to the NCS portfolio expands the single-source panel to 1.4 million households, nearly three times the size of the closest competitor. The larger footprint will deliver greater precision across Nielsen Catalina Solutions’ metrics and enable measurement of smaller TV networks and programming as well as more niche brands.

The joint venture between Nielsen and Catalina integrates actual retail purchase data from over 70 million shopper households from Catalina with Nielsen Homescan creating a dataset that is representative for CPG/OTC retail outlets. NCS has the largest single source dataset for TV of 1.4 million households which incorporates “currency quality” Nielsen People Meter data and millions of cable set-top-box homes. The NCS Digital Network reaches over 90% of the U.S. online population forming a single source dataset of over 41 million households. Nielsen Catalina Solutions is headquartered in Cincinnati, Ohio, USA. Visit www.ncsolutions.com/

Understanding the full experience of women in technology requires starting at the collegiate level (or sooner) and studying the technologies women are involved with, company cultures they're part of and personal experiences of individuals.

During this WiC radio show, we will talk with Nicole Engelbert, the director of Research & Analysis for Ovum Technology and a 23-year telecom industry veteran, about her experiences and perspectives on women in tech. Engelbert covers infrastructure, applications and industries for Ovum, but she is also involved in the research firm's higher education team and has helped colleges and universities globally leverage technology as a strategy for improving recruitment, retention and graduation performance.

She will share her unique insight into the collegiate level, where women pursuing engineering and STEM-related degrees is dwindling. Engelbert will also reveal new, original Ovum research on the topics of artificial intelligence, the Internet of Things, security and augmented reality, as well as discuss what each of those technologies might mean for women in our field. As always, we'll also leave plenty of time to answer all your questions live on the air and chat board.
