Marketers at today’s enterprises are using advanced digital analytics and other data-driven methods to inform and drive much of their decision making and capabilities – from brand and product promotion, through marketplace positioning and pricing optimization. Right now, user-centric data collection and analysis that is both cross-device and omni-channel is becoming a common practice among leading marketing teams, and the ability to drive personalized customer experiences is starting to move from blue sky to bottom line.

If you consider the rapid pace of evolution in the ways enterprises are using data, you don’t need to look far into the future to see what’s to come. Marketing teams continue to find new and innovative ways to use data to reach their customers, be more relevant in the moment, uncover new insights, and be more efficient in their investments, while the most sophisticated data analysis teams examine the potential of machine learning, artificial intelligence, and data science to leverage big data to gain a competitive edge.
