These nominations further validate Ensighten's dedication to enabling digital marketers to own their marketing data in order to provide a more personalized experience for their customers."

Companies such as Microsoft, Capital One, United Airlines and T-Mobile leverage Ensighten to optimize their digital experiences and provide customized content to their customers, maximizing ROI by up to 525 percent, according to Forrester.

A finalist in the DAA's "Digital Analytics Rising Star" category, Olivier Silvestre puts his energy on building up a professional service organization focused on advance data analytics solutions. Silvestre's team designs and creates frameworks, including tools, methodologies and best practices, leveraging advanced analytics and data science to enable clients to leverage their ever-growing data and technologies.
