|Analytic Datamart Design
Marketers need information to
develop insights about their customers, yet marketers find a
lot of the data they get difficult to use. Their reports can
be hard to understand or, worse, the information in them is
not actionable. Some marketers have online access to data,
but that tends to be more of a barrier than a facilitator,
as most marketers are not big data crunchers. Customer
insight development requires an interactive/iterative
approach towards working with data, and marketers often do
not have the tools, time, or inclination to wade into the
data and pull out the answers they seek.
Adding to this challenge is the quality of the data itself.
In many cases, the only data accessible to marketers is
operational data — data that is simply the collection of
transactional customer touches.
Using operational data for insight development is
unreliable, time consuming and far too complex for anyone to
cost-effectively derive good findings.
When insight development becomes such
a chore, marketers lose interest in data, less frequently
use data-driven tools and delegate too much analytic insight
development to outside vendors.
These limitations on both adoption and participation
have a negative impact on marketing automation and
Technologies (DBMT) has resolved these issues for
companies by building Analytic Datamarts that are easy to
use, provide an interactive environment for insight
development, and are extensible as company insight needs
