Using business intelligence, analytics and big data for better customer engagement

“Big data” has been one of the buzzwords of the last couple of years, but sometimes the technology overshadows the reason analytics has become such a priority for IT leaders. As firms gather more information about their customers, the successful companies will be those which use that data to improve understanding of their customers and to better engage with their needs. Experts say that the companies of the future will succeed based as much on what they know, as on what they do. In this CW500 Club event, we look beyond the technicalities of big data, BI and analytics, to find out how IT leaders are delivering better customer engagement in an increasingly digital world.

Data protection, privacy and the IT department – how to manage the proliferation of data in your organisation

The use of personal data is coming under ever-greater scrutiny. With stories about privacy of health records, bank accounts, and identity theft hogging the headlines, it’s clear that data protection is about far more than just an IT security issue. Just as privacy comes under such intense focus, employees are using ever more devices and cloud services to store and share data, creating a huge proliferation of information that is increasingly difficult to govern. What does this all mean for the IT department – and in particular, for IT leaders expected to efficiently store, control, manage and secure that data? In this CW500 event, we hear IT leaders perspectives on how they are managing the growing complexity of protecting data while freeing it up to meet their users’ demands.

Engaging the digital customer

Technology savvy customers are bringing the IT department closer to the frontline of business and public service delivery than ever. The balance of power has changed – customers of all sizes want to deal with organisations on their own terms, through whatever channel they prefer – often using several different channels in one extended conversation. And if that customer has a bad experience along the way, your competitors (or the complaint form, or a negative social media comment) are only a click away. IT leaders need to ensure that the technology is in place – along with the business processes and management capabilities – to support mobile, web, phone, social and good old-fashioned face-to-face interaction focused on the delivering a great experience at every stage. In this CW500 event, we hear from IT leaders at organisations that are showing the way, to hear what lessons they have learned.
