As a marketer, the more data you have at your disposal, and the easier it is to manage data, the easier your job is.

However, these companies don’t actually care about the data. This might sound crazy, but hear me out. They want the data, but not because of what you might think. They want access to data so they can improve something that matters to their business (e.g. conversion rates, user retention, revenue, etc.).
