Data enrichment and analytics

Using enrichment to learn more about your customers

Learning more about your customers and achieving a single customer view is a seemingly elusive goal for many companies. With the right tools, however, you can append your existing information with additional data to get a more holistic view of your customers. Prospect IQ (PIQ) is one of Experian’s data enrichment solutions that enables you to do so. PIQ is used most often by companies to enhance their marketing through greater customer insight and personalization. Whether that means better approaches to getting repeat customers, new avenues for attracting new leads, or better targeting existing leads, enriched data provides additional information that helps you approach your goal more strategically. Beyond marketing, other customers use PIQ to better understand their customers’ wants and needs, to expand product lines, and to model the likelihood of a sale.

Building a better data management program

Data is truly at the heart of every organization. We use it to back up business proposals and initiatives, prepare forecasts and projections, pinpoint areas for improvement, and substantiate cases we try to build. We can’t rely solely on instinct and gut feeling because they are intangible, and with the amount of information collected in today’s data-driven society, most businesses have come to expect the credibility that data brings and are investing in that power.

We also have seen more and more data operations and analytics roles popping up in the market to address the issue of getting accurate and complete data back to management in a timely manner.

The evolving role of the Chief Data Officer

Businesses talk a great deal about being data-driven. Yet, using data for strategic purposes can often prove to be more challenging than it would first appear. Organizations today are at the center of a data dilemma, plagued by inaccurate and unstandardized data, information that is scattered across disparate systems, and a lack of defined processes and skilled employees. Yet, business users are demanding access to data with greater urgency than ever before.

Your data’s diet is more important than you think

We’ve all heard the saying “you are what you eat” in reference to our morning donut and coffee. But did you ever consider that the same principle applies to your organization’s data collection processes? Much like the saturated fats from bad-for-you food that clog up your arteries, unchecked bad data can enter your database and compromise your ability to draw on that information in the future. That’s why it’s important to put measures in place to validate and correct bad data at every point of entry. Before your database has a cardiac event (and increases your stress levels), let’s talk about your data’s diet.

In the digital marketing world, the term “big data” 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.
