Advanced Analytics with Brands

In this session, analytics leaders from various brands share the latest and greatest in platform, analysis, and optimization. How are today's top brands innovating in data management, data modeling, personalization and testing? 

Topics of discussion include:
  • Differences in the way the companies are structured and operate.
  • When it comes to marketing, content creation and generation, we’re increasingly leaning on algorithms. But your data is limited to what your range of experience has been, and that can stifle innovation. So when do you trust your machine learning predictive algorithm to operate on its own; and when do you innovate, test and experiment with your data? How do you find the balance? How will these capabilities evolve?
  • Filtering through useless data vs. real data. More and more data is being collected and captured on a daily basis. You can view the data through a million different lenses, and ultimately a lot of that is a waste of time, so how do you identify what’s useful vs. taking on huge volumes of noise?
  • Data granularity for forecasting: When do you analyze? Do you look at what happens every minute, hour, day, or weekly?

You'll learn how these brands leverage their data capabilities for marketing, content prediction, personalization, measurement, understanding and growing their audience, and ultimately driving sales.
