The DatoRoundup — December 7, 2016
After the recently successful DMS West 2016 event held by LUMA Partners, it seems that everyone is trying to figure out what will be trending in the data, AdTech and MarTech space for 2017. Here are just five snippets of what’s to come. Enjoy!
This year we attended LUMA Partner’s DMS West 2016 and Datorama CEO & Co-founder, Ran Sarig, participated as a member of the the Analytics panel.

One real bright spot in the market, according to this report, is the rise in scaled, strategic exits in the last year.
