4 Key Steps to Using Customer Data More Effectively

In a recent article with Dataversity Vipul Taylor, Salesforce Certified B2B Solution Architect at Ness, shared his insights into how to use customer data to your advantage.

1. Create a single source of truth 

It is critical to aggregate all of your customer data into a single, scalable customer relationship management (CRM) platform. Then, that CRM platform can serve as a single source of truth. For example, Salesforce CRM organizes data to provide a complete record of customer preferences and behaviors, from their online browsing habits and public social media activity (likes and dislikes) to their purchasing histories and outstanding customer service issues.

2. Apply advanced analytics

In order to deliver the personalized experiences that today’s customers crave, you need to be able to anticipate their needs and be able to deliver what they want before they even want it.

3. Ensure the insights are used to improve the customer experience

Done right, analytics generate actionable insights. But those actionable insights are only valuable if they are put to work to improve the customer experience. Make sure that all the relevant teams, including those in marketing, engineering, sales, and customer service, can access the insights you’re generating, and that they are using them as part of a comprehensive, coordinated strategy.

4. Track progress and iterate to drive business value 

Be sure to measure your progress as you go, and then iterate to drive even more business value. When you use your customer data effectively, you’ll be able to elevate the customer experience and optimize customer lifetime value (CLV), convert more new customers, and bolster compliance.

Accelerate Your Cloud Data Warehouse Migration and Modernization

11:30 AM – 12:30 PM EDT

Learn Why it’s so Important to Make your Data Warehouse Real-Time

Cloud has drastically changed the data analytics space as new technology has decoupled storage from computing to power new analytics, ranging from traditional BI to machine learning. Cloud data warehouses like Snowflake, Databricks, Redshift, Synapse, and BigQuery are driving scalable, cost-effective analytics and reporting, and many organizations are looking to migrate away from legacy on-premises solutions (Teradata, Oracle, Cloudera, etc.) towards the cloud to take advantage of these new technologies.

Why Ness

Ness, a Premium Partner of Confluent, has been selected as the sole System Integrator in Confluent’s Data Warehouse Modernization program. Our data-first migration approach to a pipelined services model avoids a “Big Bang” by re-orchestrating clients’ existing business logic with streaming architectures.

Join this discussion to understand how Ness is helping organizations connect hybrid and multi-cloud data to their cloud data warehouse of choice to scale stream processing and power new, real-time analytics.

During this webinar we examined and demonstrated the benefits of modernization including:

  • How to lower TCO by decoupling storage from computing and leveraging consumption-based pricing.
  • How and why you will gain increased overall flexibility and business agility.
  • Why this will enable scalable analytics with advanced capabilities like machine learning and predictive analytics.
  • How to easily modernize your DW by powering streaming ETL pipelines

Data Warehouse Modernization – A re-orchestration roadmap for cloud-first data architecture

Data architecture modernization is a cornerstone of the Re-Orchestration programs that we are leading.

This entails:

  • Real-time ingestion of streaming data (Kafka, KSQL/DB)
  • Transitioning to cloud-hosted data warehouse engines (e.g. Redshift, Snowflake)​
  • Orchestration and workflow using technologies like Airflow
  • SQL-like querying capabilities on top of non-relational data sets including message queues, data lakes​
  • Data mesh architectures​

Join Ness Digital Engineering and AWS for a presentation on how we approach this data-first migration strategy.
