Service Offering Definition, Validation, Market Opportunity & VoC Assessment


The client wanted to better understand the market opportunity for data & privacy needs (with a lens on broader cyber & risk) related to third-party cookie deprecation/signals loss in advertising and marketing

The client was seeking to validate the customer data resilience market definition, client needs, and competitive landscape as well as to test potential service offerings with a focus on the data & privacy needs


The objective of Phase I  was to assess market dynamics & size of the cyber data and privacy market. In addition, key client needs & pain points, as well as the competitive landscape were examined.

During Phase II, the objective was to test proposed service offerings in the market. Particularly to gather market feedback on customers’ interest and readiness, level of differentiation, and our client’s positioning in the market.

Our Work

During Phase I, 10EQS assessed the data privacy market including market size & growth dynamics, particularly related to 3rd party cookie deprecation. Further, 10EQS assessed customers’ unmet needs and current spending for data governance & privacy requirements pre and post 3rd party deprecation. In this context, 10EQS defined various customer segments and their respective needs. 

10EQS additionally evaluated competitive offerings for data governance & privacy services and assessed the client’s market positioning. 

In Phase II, 10EQS tested the client’s service offering for desirability. For each offering, 10EQS assessed customers’ interest and perspective on appealing & missing components.
