Coresight Research, a global provider of research, data, events and advisory services for consumer-facing retail technology and retail real estate companies and investors, today announces that it has acquired Alternative Data Analytics, a leading data strategy and insights firm. As part of the transition, Daniel Goldberg, Founder of Alternative Data Analytics, will join Coresight Research as Chief Data Strategy Officer.
“Through this acquisition, Coresight Research will significantly increase our data capabilities and further extend our expertise in data-driven research," said Deborah Weinswig, CEO and Founder of Coresight Research. “The buildout of a data advisory practice has been on our roadmap since the launch of our data science operations in Lagos last year, and Coresight Research will now possess an enhanced ability to consolidate and convert data into knowledge.”
A renowned figure in data strategy and alternative data, Daniel Goldberg understands the decision-making processes of senior executives. Through Alternative Data Analytics, he has focused on building complex data sets and productizing them for accessibility and monetization. He has spent the last decade implementing data strategies to improve decision making.
“Coresight Research’s global reach and corporate-focused client base will provide our data business with a greatly expanded network of clients and data buyers in the retail, retail tech, consumer and real estate spaces,” noted Goldberg. “Additionally, my role as Chief Data Strategy Officer will open up a significant opportunity to meet the expanding need for data products by the firm’s growing client base.”
“As corporations accelerate their use of data to improve operational efficiencies, target customers and re-engineer the supply chain, Coresight Research’s enhanced offering—combining new data products and services with its well-established and award-winning research and insights—will be a key differentiator,” Goldberg added.
As part of the expansion of its data services offerings, Coresight Research recently launched its Store Intelligence Platform, an interactive, real-time solution for tracking store openings, closures and active store counts as well as accessing additional analytics. The comprehensive platform offers a proprietary view into the changing world of retail real estate and is already driving improved decision making for clients. The offering will be especially valuable in light of the numerous financial and operational challenges that retailers are facing during this period of change in consumer expectations and last-mile delivery models.
