Dallas, Texas (August 11, 2020) – Dynata, the world’s largest first-party data and insights platform, today announced the acquisition of Sharpr, a leading knowledge management, content syndication and publishing platform. With the acquisition, Dynata will integrate Sharpr’s capabilities – recently recognized by Forrester as a leader in Market and Competitive Intelligence Platforms – into its Dynata Insights Platform, delivering a single connected solution to manage every step along the entire research and marketing continuum.

“Our mission is to bring the voice of the customer to the entire marketing continuum, from strategy, innovation, and branding to advertising, measurement, and optimization,” said Gary S. Laben, CEO of Dynata. “This acquisition furthers that mission by ensuring that the research powering that continuum can be organized and shared with stakeholders, extending the value of those insights. It enhances our Dynata Insights Platform, giving our clients a connected platform for all their research and marketing needs.”
Chuck Sharp, CEO of Sharpr, added, “We’re excited to join Dynata and bring the strength of Sharpr’s offering to Dynata’s clients. Researchers want to be able to share their insights across the organization to reveal the strength of their findings and leverage the value of the data deeper within the organization. Our platform ensures their insights are searchable, shareable, and can be dynamically delivered to a broader audience.”
The integration of Sharpr’s capabilities into the Dynata Insights Platform means researchers and marketers now have an easy, intuitive and collaborative way to share and extend research and insights with internal and external audiences. The addition of custom publishing and sharing tools ensures that research investments can be shared and acted upon, either for knowledge-sharing purposes or further research, validating the insights for better and faster decision-making.
