Breaking BI Barriers: Behavioral Analytics in the Age of Big Data

Mark Frigon, Director of Product Management for Behavioral Analytics at Platfora

Organizations struggle to develop a truly integrative, 360 degree view of their customers. They desire to understand patterns of customer behaviors across all online and offline touchpoints as well as learn not just “what” is happening, but also “why” and “how” it impacts the organization. But traditional data warehousing and BI approaches cannot keep pace with the size and complexity of data and these tools seldom offer appropriate ways to quickly visualize behavioral data. Furthermore, they cannot provide the necessary granular-level access to individual customer sessions or devices for marketing, personalization, and remediation. Fortunately, the combination of behavioral analytics and big data technologies can give organizations more actionable insights beyond just directional aggregate performance measures. In this session, learn what distinguishes behavioral analytics from traditional approaches, how big data technologies can enable organizations to derive maximum insights, and how behavioral analytics on big data can deliver a 360 view of the customer at an unprecedented scale.
