A8: #cxo Of course not. There are plenty of #bigdata offerings for small/midmarket, priced accordingly, smart small/scale capacity as needed

A7: #cxo It's always best, in any human engage/conversation, 2 assume deepest sentiment pre-verbal. Few people want to be bothered telling U

A7: #cxo "Data of desire" (deep in customer heart) often unspoken. Can only be pieced together iteratively thru info, models & conversations

A7: #cxo A marketing analyst asks questions, looks at customer data, sees what questions can't B answered (ie, "NOT saying", gets more data

A6: #cxo Intimacy is elusive because the customer is often not terribly in touch with their own "feelings." Don't assume "deep" sentiment.

A6: #cxo "Intimacy" in a B2C engagement contxt also elusive. They may have good reason 4 distancing selves. They simply don't like/trust you

A6: #cxo Of course intimacy is elusive. Even married couples, that most intimate relationship, need to rediscover each other regularly

A5: #cxo Collective intimacy has merit if strangers don't start acting like they're my friends without doing something genuinely "friendly"

A5: #cxo Collective intimacy has merit if actually enrich people's feeling of belonging vs. that of being exploited by commercial interests

A5: #cxo Collective intimacy has merit in omniconnected world if we respect sensitivity/privacy boundaries & don't "over-assume" familiarity

A5: #cxo Collective intimacy has merit if recognize that "intimacy," in global context, is closer to "familiarity" than to "U got my back"

A4: #cxo Business can leverage intimat customer omni-connectedness by maintaining presences (where relevant) in each customer's social graph

A4: #cxo If I'm connected to everybody, I'm influenced by & am influencing everybody on various levels. Influence becomes incredibly tangled

A4: #cxo Growing omni-connectedness of human race makes more difficult for outsiders to fathom the complexity of each's person's experience

A4: #cxo Having ability to graph each of us in different contexts (community, job, etc.) helps us distinguish domains of each person's life

A4: #cxo Clearly, this where social graphs come into picture. Everybody more "intimate" w/everybody else. Graphs drive influence/experience

A3: #cxo Often, more data granularity not as important as ability to aggregate and correlate details you have, see broader customer patterns

A3: #cxo Can also get more granular customer data by a) asking 4 it in online/portal dialog/surveys, b) guiding call-ctr agents to ask 4 it

A3: #cxo Granular customer data comes via a) having detail in your transactional DBs, b) applying NLP to unstructured from socials etc

A2: #cxo Most relevant data may simply be the data you don't yet have on your customers. That data may confirm/disconfirm your hypothesis

A2: #cxo Often, most relevant info on cust is what they actually tell you. Mine your call ctr logs w/text analytcs. They tell their own tale

A2: #cxo Usually, most relevant customer data is what have on current customers, not on prospects. Cheaper to keep customer than try to win

A2: #cxo The purpose of business is to catch, keep, & grow customer relationships. Data relevance must be shaped by those priorities.

A2: #cxo "Most relevant" relative to outcome. If retain customer, most relevant is "happy?" If selling to them, it's "offer acceptable?"

A1: #cxo Important for biz o capture data on their entire customer base, each segment, to fine degree. Better segmentation = better service

A1: #cxo But it is important for a biz to capture entire history of my relationship with them, my entire interactions, & my entire feelings

A1: #cxo For example, the coffee shop down the street doesn't need to know my banking needs. Just know that I like it hot, fresh, & cheap

A1: #cxo What businesses need to know about customers is that subset of "what they truly want" that the business can realistically address

A1: #cxo We don't need 2 capture literally EVERYTHING about anybody 2 know them reasonably well. What we need 2 know is what they truly want

@IBMbigdata A pleasure to be on this #CXO tweetchat. I like to think I know the topic of intimacy intimately, but that'd be too bold.

@IBMbigdata #ibmblu Been a pleasure. Now: to decompress my overheated cranium.

@IBMbigdata @craigmullins #ibmblu If "metadata" can get "cool" (or at least on everybody's lips), there's hope 4 "compression." Not yet tho

A8: I want the compression algorithm to be smarter than me and it's way smarter with combination of techniques in #ibmblu
 Retweeted by jameskobielus

A8: #ibmblu One might recognize that speedy compression must be applied to operational data, but not as critical on bulk archival data

A8: #ibmblu There's a need to apply different compression schemes to different types of data, to minimize data footprints & max efficiency

A7: #ibmblu RT @tomlrieger: RAM still expensive & to be able to work on compressed data and have smart cache on columnar is important

A7 - Better use of memory, less I/O, faster utility execution, foundation for other technologies to leverage #ibmblu
 Retweeted by jameskobielus

#ibmblu compresses data as much as possible, compresses the most commonly occurring data & and then optimally packs it = performance gains
 Retweeted by jameskobielus

A7 – pack more data into every I/O, page and CPU operation. #ibmblu has it. Competition stops short.
 Retweeted by jameskobielus

A7: #ibmblu Compression can improve memory/disk usage & query performance in one fell swoop if can operate on still-compressed data.

A6: Why does a DBA need to manage a DW full of secondary tuning objects? Modern DBs (e.g., #ibmblu #PureData) make that unnecessary.

A5: #ibmblu RT @tomlrieger: Phys (machine) & logical (query path) opp's 4 optimization. Compression in #ibmblu makes easier to scale both

A5: Compression alone? No. What CAN and HAS replaced some of the tuning objects is COLUMNAR IN-MEMORY databases a la #ibmblu

A5: #ibmblu RT @Keith_Carlsen: [compression can't replace tuning objects] by itself. Only when part of bigger set of data proc optimizations

A4 - I’ve seen 2x expansion routinely. Aggregate/summary tables take space, but also admin/CPU to maintain. Not needed with #ibmblu
 Retweeted by jameskobielus

A4 The "extraneous" objects used for tuning can double the size of a database. #ibmblu
 Retweeted by jameskobielus

Better quality of life for DBAs! RT @enzeevoice #ibmblu - major advtge is admins...can manage the data without it crushing them.

@Keith_Carlsen A4 - yes, simplifies the DBA experience to not have to design/manage aggregates #ibmblu
 Retweeted by jameskobielus

MQTs, indexes and the like bloat load times by 2-3x. There is a lot of work to keep all that overhead current with each new row #ibmblu
 Retweeted by jameskobielus

A4 Worse yet, those tuning objects require their own maintenance. #ibmblu
 Retweeted by jameskobielus

A4: #ibmblu Secondary tuning (indexes) can increase data stor requirements considerably. Fortunately #IBM #Netezza #PureData doesnt use em.

A3: #ibmblu Can move the detail data to cheaper cloud bulk storage.

A3: #ibmblu You can do pre-processing analytics on incoming data to find key patterns/trends of interest, so need to keep less detailed data

A3: #ibmblu You can profile incoming data (using IBM Data Explorer) to determine upfront what's worth retaining. Can use dedupe to reduce it

A2: #ibmblu Need for real-time analytics against massive online data sets may also reduce some needs for archiving and purging.

A2: #ibmblu Storage cost reductions may lesse needs for frequent data archiving, purging, compression, and other storage optimizations.

A1: #ibmblu #BigData's focus on advanced analytics has increased the need to do fast indexing query etc of data without decompressing

A1: #ibmblu #BigData's growing varieties of structured & unstructured intensify need for differentiated compression of diverse data types

A1: #ibmblu #BigData's velocity requirements (stream computing etc) has intensified the need for very fast compression/decompression.

A1: #ibmblu #BigData has spurred order-of-magnitude increase in storage requirements. Compression is central pillar o storage optimization

A1: #ibmblu #BigData's massive data volumes require efficient compression to make cost-effective use o storage resources. IT budgets limited

@mjasay Might think o "3 Vs" as "3 Ss" (scale speed scope)( ). Some equ8 "scale" w/"volume." Same concepts, diff words

@mjasay Confusion is endemic to many #bigdata industry discussions when people treat the 3 scale Vs as equiv to non-scale Vs (veracity etc)

Join me today at 1 PM ET for #ibmblu chat on Controlling your Data Footprint! Details: 

@mjasay #bigdata "scale" is about 3 quantifiable dimensions of "more": capacity (volume), speed (velocity), and diversity (variety).

@mjasay Huh? Variety and velocity are two components of scale. Volume is the third.

My tweaked definition of #bigdata: deep business value derived from implementing advanced analytics and trustworthy data at extreme scales.

A5: @IBMbigdata #CXO #CEM #IBM IT's #bigdata team needs to help the customer-facing biz functions explore power of graph analytics for CXO

A5: @IBMbigdata #CXO #CEM #IBM IT team needs to proactively align its #bigdata efforts with/mktg, sales, & cust svc experience initiatives

A4: @IBMbigdata #CXO #CEM #IBM Businesses stay agile if they recognize when post-transaction surveys counterproductive (e.g., irritate cust)

A4: @IBMbigdata #CXO #CEM #IBM Businesses remain agile if stay ready 2 incorpor8 fresh data on customer if old data obscures true sentiment

A4: @IBMbigdata #CXO #CEM #IBM Businesses remain agile by being ready 2 self-disrupt own biz model & prod/svc portfolio as cust behav shifts

A3: @IBMbigdata #CXO #CEM #IBM You risk a create/consume "gap" if imagine only one customer sentiment source (e.g., Twitter) always suffices

A3: @IBMbigdata #CXO #CEM #IBM If value creation/consumption "gap" opens up, is cuz biz either NOT listening 2 customers or NOT acting on it

A3: @IBMbigdata #CXO #CEM #IBM Value creation: biz pitches, but satisfied customers are your best marketing. They spread the word to others

A3: @IBMbigdata #CXO #CEM #IBM Value creation/consumptoin is not a "gap" that needs to be "bridged"--if biz actually listens to customers

A2: @IBMbigdata #CXO #CEM #IBM The B2C convo must be give-take dialogue between biz & cust. Don't always be in their face. Let them breathe

A2: @IBMbigdata #CXO #CEM #IBM Important for biz NOT 2 aggressively dominate B2C customer convo w/pre-trans pitches & post-trans surveys

A2: @IBMbigdata #CXO #CEM #IBM Engagement = ongoing B2C convo. Transactions are key events in the convo. But satisfaction always convo focus

A1: @IBMbigdata #CXO #CEM #IBM Contextual engagement def'n: be "in the moment" with each customer each step of their personalized journey

A1: @IBMbigdata #CXO #CEM #IBM "Contxtualizn" biz case must B part numbers (ROI) & part narrative (case study/anecdote) re 1:1 cust engagemt

A1: @IBMbigdata #CXO #CEM #IBM Buy-in from leadership team needs to be from CEO on down, with chief customer officer framing the case in ROI

A1: @IBMbigdata #CXO #CEM #IBM The "contextual" part of engagement: business case is treat each customer as indiividual & they'll stay

A1: @IBMbigdata #CXO #CEM #IBM You build business case through monetary ROI from retention, upsell, satisfaction. Engaged = happy customers
