@NigelFenwick A8: #CXO: But I'm dating myself with "driver" & "steering wheel." Self-driving vehicles may make those buggywhip obsolete
A8 #cxo "Driver" for marketing will still be biz mperatives (sales, revenue, share, etc.). The data/analytics will be the "steering wheel"
A8: IMHO Data alone cannot answer the conundrum of the fickle human mind & customers 2day or 2morrow #cxo #bigdata
A8 #cxo By 2028, I see data as a predominant driver of marketing, but not "sole" driver. Human/creative drivers of campaign mgt will endure
A7: #cxo #Datadriven marketers face challenge of "sentiment vs. sediment" (data quality) per my #IBMDataMag article: http://bit.ly/17XgRXP
A7: #cxo #Datadriven marketers face challenge of prioritizing data sources & engagement channels. Where do you start to measure/boost #CX?
A7. Pace of change is major challenge - focus less on the channel and more on the customer to overcome #CXO
A7: Key challenge may be becoming too dependent on data causing analysis paralysis #cxo
A7: #cxo #Datadriven marketers can address challenge of talent acquisition by cross-training marketing people on data science & vice versa
A7: #cxo #Datadriven marketers face the challenge of recruiting & cultivating the best data-science expertise with subject-matter expertise
A6: #cxo To deal with never-ending #bigdata explosion, marketers need to systematically & regularlly purge less-relevant historical data.
A6: #cxo To deal with ongoing #marketing data explosion, #mktg needs to prioritize customer data sources by relevance to campaigns, #CX, etc
A6: #cxo To prep for continuous #bigdata explosion, tomorrow's & today's marketer needs to learn how to search/drill into it rapidly.
A5: #cxo Science is inherently creative exercise, as is marketing. The fit--via data/anaytics--is natural. Enabling new experience patterns
A5: Data forces the art in a campaign to be relevant. It forces creative to think harder. It forces media team to be more relevant #cxo
A5: #cxo Art & science of marketing come together in compellingly insightful visualizations that reveal powerful truths via data/analytics
A5: #cxo Campaign mgmt is where art & science of #marketing "get married." Design is a (human) art. Optimization is (data/analytic) science
A4: #cxo Buy-in for data-driven marketing must come from execs (who may be oldschool), not "creatives" (they're already on-board)
@NigelFenwick @marcbinkley "gut" doesn't improve with age. It improves with practice which comes from engagement & experience #cxo
A4: #cxo The "creative" side is the "biz" in experience-centric economy. They're already attuned to data-driven mktg. Give them their tools
@IBMbigdata a4) data will channelize & trim noise, will save creative time & rework. It will help deep dive into community & b relevant #cxo
A4. A/B tests are a great way to get creative teams to buy into DDM #cxo
A4: #cxo "Creatives" should be exposed to self-service user-friendly visual high-quality #marketing #CX analytics tools. That builds buy-in
MT @thecxguy let's not forget that the "gut" of an engaged, experience professional is a significant data point. #cxo
A3: #cxo Regular, data-driven customer segmentation analysis is essential so that your "gut" doesnt continually stereotype & pigeonhole them
A3: #cxo Marketers should continually explore, "eyeball," & play with the data. Build & test stat models. That's continual "gut enhancemt."
A2: #cxo A blanket repudiation of #bigdata analytics over "seat of pants" decision making is ill-advised. Received wisdom can be wrongheaded
A2: #cxo Data analytics helps you validate, adjust, & correct your gut instinct based on what hard facts reveal. Best #mktg is self-critical
A2: #cxo Gut instinct is what #mktg must have to identify the #cx questions to answer & the #bigdata analytics needed to answer it.
A2: #cxo Not all analytics is equally useful. #Mktg should have gut instinct for which data analytics best suited to the challenge at hand
A1: #cxo Every new productivity tool requires ramp-up of skills to use creativity. Many hi-powrd #mktg pros have already ramped on analytics
@IBMbigdata a1) I think analytics gives direction to marketeers and helps channelize their creativity to the right audiences #cxo
A1: No, it's up to marketers to craft & deliver tailored #CX from #analytics. Navigating the noise of numbers is part of the job #CXO
RT @IBMbigdata: RT @NigelFenwick: Today few companies can create real-time changes in the UX using analytics; MT not so in 5 years. #cxo
A1: Creativity is still required to build compelling stories based on analytiycs #cxo
A1: #cxo #Mktg pros know that multichannel customer experience optimization is unwieldy without analytics & #bigdata.
A1: #cxo Analytics has been embraced by the new breed of #mktg pros whose creativity is accelerated by data correlation/visualization
A1: #cxo I think analytics has liberated, nor stifled, marketing pros. They can dig far deeper into customer experience & target more finely
