“Partnering with ThinkData is a great opportunity,” says Arima CEO, Winston Li. “Arima’s database is a powerful standalone product, but when it’s layered with other datasets like points of interest or neighbourhood foot traffic, it starts to unlock completely new insight. We’re thrilled to work with ThinkData to start providing this data to the wider market.”

Drew Doherty, Director of Partnerships for ThinkData, says, “Consumer analytics is a constantly evolving field. Arima’s done an incredible job pulling together disparate datasets and modeling them into a product that is both granular and maintains individual privacy. We’re excited to provide Arima data through Namara and help our partners get predictive around consumer behaviour”

Arima’s data sources are anonymized before being modeled into the CCI data feed, meaning that all Arima source data contains no personal identifiable information. By safely modelling the data down to an individual level without including any personal information, the CCI provides users with the opportunity to understand base layer demographics while still complying with privacy regulations.
