Know Thy Customer: Next-Generation Techniques for Turning Big Customer Data Into Action
Companies leading the charge in competing with analytics, make data-driven decisions part of their daily practice. But they need to discover, interpret, and respond to key data patterns quickly and intelligently. Identifying key (and potentially non-obvious) relationships and trends allow the business to rapidly respond to changes in their customers’ needs and behaviors. Come to this session to see how some great companies are creating a core competency around big data analytics with a blend of machine learning technology, cloud computing, and business process under the economic constraints of smaller headcounts and limited budgets. We will explore the next-generation techniques and technologies that today our business leaders are using to create data-driven product strategy and customer-level insight from petabytes of data. Get ideas of how to apply iterative, self-optimizing data analysis in your organization and enable your own analytics center of innovation.
