In the past few months, we have had the wonderful opportunity to work with Data3Sixty, a technology company that focuses on active data governance. As we have been making the rounds at similar conferences, groups, and other events in the beautiful Boston area, it seemed obvious to continue the conversation and really understand how we can work together. We identified the opportunity to collaborate from a technology perspective and to capitalize on the mutual momentum in the marketplace around data quality and data governance.
As we work to help our clients unlock the power of their data, Experian Data Quality is also committed to helping empower the next generation of data users. In that spirit, we launched a scholarship contest this year that prompts rising college seniors to show us how they use data in their daily lives. To enter, the students had to submit a one- to two-minute video and a short essay describing the importance of data quality. They had four months to prepare and submit their entries, with the promise of a $5,000 scholarship for the winning participant.
Now that the busy holiday season is winding down and we’ve turned the calendar, retailers are refocusing their attention to driving sales in 2017. Retailers are always keen to hear what their peers and competitors were doing to improve customer experiences and drive sales. Here are five things those in the retail industry should keep top of mind in 2017.
Several of our employees recently walked down the street and around the corner to participate in an afternoon of volunteerism with the Boston Rescue Mission.
Over the past few years, we at Experian have seen a big shift in data usage. Businesses are learning how to truly unlock the power of data to better serve their clients. But the data usage itself isn’t the only thing evolving. The users of data and the tools used to support their efforts are also changing.
Retailers often tell us about their endless pursuit to create a seamless buying experience: a utopian idea that has dominated the industry for years. This pursuit can often seem never ending, especially as technology and consumer expectations seem to outpace retailers’ ability to keep up. Meanwhile, according to Shopify, shopping cart abandonment rates hover around 67 percent, with many customers claiming they leave websites with full shopping carts because of complicated or long checkout processes.
I recently had the pleasure of attending the Master Data Management (MDM) & Data Governance Summit in New York City. The Summit was located in the same hotel as one of the presidential candidate’s election night parties, which provided plenty of excitement. Excitement aside, there was a lot to learn: gauging the pulse of the institute, getting to know the attendees, and understanding their corporate concerns.

In the digital marketing world, the term “big data” thrown is thrown around a lot. By definition, big data is extremely large data sets that may be analyzed computationally to reveal patterns, trends, and associations, especially relating to human behavior and interactions.
As a small business, your data may not be classified as “big,” but it’s incredibly important to the growth of your business. Contact data, in particular, is something that small businesses need to focus on.
In this post, we've partnered up with JustUno, a conversion optimization platform, to take a look the value in collecting lead and customer contact data, and see why ensuring the quality of contact data is critical for small businesses.
Businesses today rely on tremendous amounts of data to do everything from improving their customers’ experience, to streamlining operations, to reducing risk to the organization. Data is everywhere, and countless individuals interact with it throughout its life cycle. While this provides an incredible opportunity, organizations need to ensure that the quality of that data is upheld to ensure that it is fit for purpose.
