Establishing a Foundation for Growth: Auditing Your Data, Technology and Marketing Processes
One of the keys toward driving current and future growth is ensuring your organization has the right data and technology foundation in place as well as a set of efficient marketing processes to support planned go-to-market efforts. This presentation will focus on the steps needed to conduct a proper assessment, what roles need to be involved, how to gather the most relevant supporting information and how to prepare and present insights and recommendations to the organization’s stakeholders.
Using Analytics to Tell a Compelling Story
More often than not, analytic presentations end with the question: “So, what does this all mean?” If that is the case, you did not do your job to the fullest. Data points and statistical output are simply components of a larger narrative and it is up to the analyst to put those pieces together into a coherent description of the business reality. The goal of analytic storytelling is to encourage a robust debate when exploring insights for business decisions. This discussion will show how to convey important information in a compelling way using advanced analytics. This skill will become even more important as the world moves further into the digital space and the amount of data and information available increases exponentially.
