Truly understanding your customer means not just listening to what they tell you explicitly, but also interpreting their interactions and recognizing when something significant happens - or doesn't happen.
SunTrust Bank has found that customers' transactional data can be a goldmine of information for use in targeted marketing efforts.

With customer analytics-including predictive analytics, social analytics, business intelligence, and decision management-companies are empowered to improve the customer experience and maximize business outcomes by being proactive, rather than reactive.

Relational database management systems (RDBMSs) are systems of software that manage databases as structured sets of tables containing rows and columns with references to one another through key values. They include the ability to optimize storage, process transactions, perform queries, and preserve the integrity of data structures. When used with applications, they provide the beating heart of the collection of business functions supported by those applications. They vary considerably in terms of the factors that impact the total cost of running a database application, yet users seldom perform a disciplined procedure to calculate such costs. Most users choose instead to remain with a single vendor's RDBMS and never visit the question of ongoing hardware, software, and staffing fees.

Merchants and service providers that process credit card payments must comply with the Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard (PCI DSS), now at Version 3.0. Whether the transaction occurs in a store or online, and regardless of the environment, from physical Point of Sale devices, to virtualized servers, or web servers in a public cloud, PCI DSS 3.0 mandates that these organizations are responsible for the security of their customers’ cardholder data.

In spite of the growth of virtual business activities performed via the World Wide Web, every business transaction or operation is performed at a physical place. And as handheld GPS devices drive a growing awareness of the concept of "location," people are increasingly looking for operational efficiencies, revenue growth, or more effective management as a result of geographic data services and location-based intelligence. In this white paper, David Loshin, president of Knowledge Integrity, Inc., introduces geographic data services (such as geocoding and proximity matching) and discusses how they are employed in both operational and analytical business applications. The paper also reviews analytical techniques applied across many types of organizations and examines a number of industry-specific usage scenarios.
