“BIG DATA” Transformed Into Insight with Practical Techniques
Learning to understand who your customers are as people, where they are in their life cycle, which customers are most valuable, and how to anticipate your customers’ wants, needs and preferences is what “Big Data” transformation is all about.
Cincinnati, OH (PRWEB) May 09, 2012
Hosted by Loyalty 360 – the Loyalty Marketers association, Dave Resnick, Vice President Client Solutions, VeraCentra recently presented a webinar titled, “Transforming Raw Customer Data Into Insight: Practical Techniques You Can Apply Right Now!” Attendees were given insights into the methodology used to manipulate “BiG Data” and the power of analytics to find out: Who your customers are as people, Where customers are in their lifecycle, Which customers are most valuable, and Anticipating your customers wants, needs and preferences.
The analytics used by VeraCentra were broken down into three different categories of analyses.
1. Cluster Analysis: Cluster analysis is a mathematical method used to create customer segments. This is taken from client supplied data; examples are transactions, emails and physical addresses. These are combined with appended external data which is representative of demographics, physcographics and behavioral data variables. By combining these two pools of data with the right analytics you will come up with your core customer base and the segments which reside within.
2. Regressive Analysis: Regressive analysis is a mathematical method whose results produce a “formula” which predicts the probability of an individual person’s outcomes. This analysis predicts customer value, lifecycle stage, and need and wants.
3. Combination +QeS and Monte Carlo Regression Models: A combination of cluster analysis plus regression analysis plus QeS regression models and Monte Carlo regression models to produce the customer base. The customer base will then be divided up into four different categories:
- Most likely to purchase product
- Most likely to become loyal customer
- Most likely to deliver high levels of revenue
- Most likely to at-trite
In addition to above there were many other takeaways like:
- Analytics best in class companies are using to transform raw data into customer insight
- How customer insight informs customer strategy
- Industry examples of what other marketers are already doing to achieve competitive advantage
Learning to understand who your customers are as people, where they are in their lifecycle, which customers are most valuable, and how to anticipate your customers’ wants, needs and preferences is what “Big Data” transformation is all about.
