To mark this month’s Deep Dive into the state of future of privacy, the web and data-led marketing, we take a look at which mid-sized agencies – businesses with over 100 employees – with Recommended status offer clients services in these areas.

The Drum Recommends is a free service designed by The Drum to help marketers find relevant, trusted agencies. Recommendations are based on reviews by the people best placed to judge their expertise – their clients.

Every year, The Drum Recommends receives thousands of ratings from advertisers. Marketers complete a survey that scores their agency’s performance and the quality and range of their services, as well as price. In order to become recommended for a service, agencies must receive at least three client ratings.

Below, you’ll find the names, headcount and office locations of 20 agencies offering data science, integration, management, strategy and visualization services.
