The bars in the charts are active to enable you to click on any metric and rank all measurements according to the chosen parameter 

Brand Linkage / Demand
Examines the correlation between important brand attributes and evaluates their impact on each other

Article Reading
Shows which articles engage the readers most and least. Article reading combines the overall score with other criteria in a chart, such as important content, well written, informative and easy to understand

Article Index
Positions the articles in a matrix diagram, divided up into four quadrants. The various quadrants describe how well the article has been read and what engagement it has generated

This analysis shows the correlation between the Overall Impression that a reader has of a specific advertisement and any action that they are likely to take.

This shows the correlation between how relevant the advertisement is to a reader, and how easy it is to understand who the advertiser is. These two matrices provide clear and central analyses to help you understand what creates successful advertising

Action Score / Stopping Power
The Action score/Stopping power graph describes the relationship between the two dimensions Aggregated action score and Stopping power (Ad Recall).

Ad Effectiveness Index
The AEI awards all chosen ads a form of combined impact score. The score is given to an ad based on: ad observation, brand connection, engagement and purchase intention. Index 100 is the average value for all ads in the same industry and country. All ads with an index greater than 100 deliver more than the average and the higher the index the better the overall score.

Survey statistics
Survey statistics gives an overview of the measurements conducted. It provides a summary of survey dates, what type of surveys and at what frequency they have been launched.

Panelist Statistics
Panelist statistics gives an overview of your panel. Age, gender and other demographics. When they register and how active they are. This is an important metric to help you understand how active your panel is, and is a good indication of when you should look to refresh your panel.

List mode
The list mode will present lists of measurements, demographics and variables. It is possible to sort and rank measurements against any variable. Any lists that have been created can be saved and used again for future reference.

"As a new joiner to the Irish Times Media Solutions team, Dianne’s introduction to RAM was a revelation to me. Digital is often only unfairly measured using quantitative metrics with little or no measurement of the established salience metrics. RAM solves this for us.  I believe it will be an increasingly important tool for our digital measurement going forward. Personally, I’m looking forward to using it more frequently to give us an edge and help clients realise and understand the true value of digital advertising with The Irish Times”
