To compete effectively and keep the best customers loyal, organizations need to capture a variety of data about customers and analyze it effectively. This includes tapping new and promising big data sources such as social media data. However, if organizations cannot analyze data in time and deliver insights to business decision makers quickly, all the data in the world won’t make a difference.
Customer analytics technologies and processes enable organizations to move faster to predict behavior and identify the best offers and actions for increasing retention rates, reducing churn, enhancing margins, and more. Customer analytics processes have traditionally been the exclusive province of expert data miners and data scientists, but no more. Today’s visual, easier-to-use tools are putting customer analytics capabilities in the hands of business decision makers. Technologies are making it easier to access, prepare, transform, and interact with fresher and more varied data so that analysis doesn’t come too late to have the highest value for marketing campaigns, sales strategies, and so on.
Join this TDWI Webinar to hear about technology and practice trends in customer analytics that are capable of bringing powerful insights to business decision makers.
