Track: Data – Cloudera: Understanding Customer Behaviour

Terms like ‘customer 360’ and ‘single-customer-view’ have been in circulation for a long time but many organisations still struggle to get a holistic view of their customers. The rapid growth of the internet, social media and mobile technology has made it almost impossible to keep up with the volume, variety and pace of data and therefore insights are rarely found in the time needed to capitalise on the opportunities they present.

This session will focus on the way that Cloudera and Qlik enable businesses across all sectors to truly know their customers. Learn how to establish a modern data and analytics approach that enables you to deliver customer insights across your entire business and build more personalised offers that help attract new customers and build loyalty and retention rates for the long-term.
