Analytics and how companies use them are increasingly a differentiator in business success, so it’s important for companies to not only leverage their investments, but also to be thinking about and preparing for the future.

Roberts shared that while users expect a seamless digital experience, many times companies have a tough time delivering because of three things: complacency, complexity and currency. To combat those factors, it’s important for organizations to be pragmatic, agile and strategic about the data they collect from customers and how it’s being analyzed and operationalized.Continue reading
In the very beginning of our conference preparation we do research.
