Customer loyalty is a competitive advantage and critical to the long-term success of companies across industries that have direct relationships with customers—none more so than those in retail, e-commerce, and consumer packaged goods. Marketing and loyalty programs thrive on timely data insights, yet generating complete, customer-360 data views has never been more challenging. Companies must juggle numerous data sources, including transaction systems, websites, CRM, and inventory.
This TDWI webinar focuses on how leading global retailer Skechers’ data team solved challenges using a flexible and scalable toolset plus a data lakehouse to unify, stitch, and maintain a massive amount of customer data. Skechers’ data team enables marketers to gain self-service insights so they can drive powerful business outcomes without relying on engineers and analysts.
Guest speakers from Skechers, ActionIQ, and Databricks will join TDWI to discuss how to create a composable customer data platform (CDP) on top of a data lakehouse to provide an agile and scalable customer data foundation. Speakers will discuss how this foundation enables customer-360 data insights that are critical to meeting current and future marketing objectives.
This webinar will explore:
- TDWI perspectives on trends for solving customer data integration challenges to enable timely and complete insights
- Market trends driving brands like Skechers toward a composable stack strategy built on a data lake
- How Skechers is scaling data-driven marketing and powering global expansion
- Next steps for Skechers to shift to a composable model and the pros and cons
