When building websites and applications, too many companies make decisions- on everything from new product features, to look and feel, to marketing campaigns- using subjective opinions rather than hard data.
Companies should conduct online controlled experiments to evaluate their ideas. Potential improvements should be rigorously tested, because large investments can fail to deliver, and some tiny changes can be surprisingly detrimental while have big payoffs.
Effective Competition Depends on Continuous Delivery of Quality Software In today’s application economy every company is a software company, no matter what industry it is in:
• Shipping companies depend on logistics software to efficiently route packages, arrange drivers and automate warehouses.
• Retail companies rely on software to manage inventory, engage with customers online and to give in-store associates the tools they need to answer customer questions on the spot.
• Marketing firms lean on applications to gather consumer data and parse it, automate communication with prospects and effectively manage advertising campaigns. The examples are endless.
The point is that in order to compete today, every business must be able to quickly build and tweak software to adjust to always evolving market demands. Ultimately, business success depends on faster development iterations while still maintaining the high quality of service expected by customers, stakeholders and end users.

Marketing as you know it will never be the same. There’s a fundamental shift in relationships between brands and customers—fueled by smartphones, social media, and today’s
always-on, always-connected mentality. Marketers have access
to more customer data (big data) than ever before. But the quantity of data only matters if you’re smart about using it—to power 1:1 customer journeys.
Consider the many ways that a customer encounters your brand – organic results on a search engine, display media campaigns, social media links, re-targeting on external sites, etc. One thing is certain – consumer journeys are far from linear. They can occur across multiple platforms, devices and browsers. The problem is that organizations are often constrained to channel-limiting decisions regarding their media investment allocations.
Marketing attribution helps you analyze the impact and business value of company-generated marketing interactions to help make the best marketing investment decisions. The challenge is to interpret the massive volumes of customer data that continues to expand day by day.
This RSR custom research report explores the impact of omnichannel methods on merchandising, marketing and the supply chain; specifically, what analytical capabilities address the challenges that omnichannel selling and fulfillment pose for retailers. Consumers today routinely begin their shopping journeys online, but complete their purchases in nearby stores, in their “home” stores or delivered directly to their doors. Retail analytics enables organizations to capture data from their customers' journeys. Retailers that successfully deliver relevant omnichannel experiences while gaining a more sophisticated understanding of demand (where and how it is initiated) will enhance their brands’ value and create compelling and profitable customer relationships.

A one-size-fits-all approach to marketing is not a sound tactic—it’s a marketing fruitcake that no one wants to receive. It’s time to get down with data to delight your audience and provide them with the personal experiences they deserve. Read the marketing essentials guide now.
