Data Analytics Professionals Weigh In on the Challenges of Bringing AI to Marketing

We spoke to three business leaders in the space at a recent conference hosted by analytics software firm Sisense about the difficulties of teaching people about AI, refitting aging systems to handle new tech and expanding the collective imagination of what’s possible. Amir Orad, Sisense CEO: “Today, with legacy technologies, getting the right data and the right data sets together is a pain cave. I know that because we work with data partners and they tell us their data teams spend 80 to 90 percent of their time dealing with a data mess versus what they’re hired to do which is AI, data science, predictive technologies–that’s the big thing…”

Why bots are the new smartphone

Bots are just a user interface of a much bigger revolution that is surrounding us these days — the artificial intelligence revolution… The technology has the ability to interact with us in new, surprising and unprecedented ways, provide us insights we were previously blind to, and is quickly becoming the new user interface for platforms like bots. With this, we’re going to start to see a new class of bots become as ubiquitous as smartphones — not just in business, but in every aspect of human life.

30 Percent of Employees Feel Indispensable. That’s a Bad Thing.

Disconnecting from work outside of the office needs to be a habit — not just something leaders allow employees to do when they go on vacation. This is why New York-based business intelligence software company Sisense created its “Coming Up for Air” program. Once a quarter, the company schedules a long weekend and requires that all employees disconnect out of the office. No phone calls or emails between team members are permitted.

By 2020, You’re More Likely to Have a Conversation With This Than With Your Spouse

The chatbot application that I’m most excited for is business intelligence (BI). Real potential is unleashed when we marry AI and BI. Companies like Sisense have already developed technologies that enable chatbots to assist executives in answering critical business questions–the latest sales trends, data about a customer, insights about a competitor, and more. If you’re considering a chatbot, consider the multitude of different challenges you’d like to solve. Chances are there’s a chatbot that can help.

The Demise of the Keyboard – Natural Language Technology Takeover

Sisense, a BI and analytics platform, offers an API so users can leverage Amazon’s Echo and use voice commands to widgets and dashboards to retrieve and hear numeric data as well as dashboard summaries. In reference to using natural language search for Sisense, John Loury, president of Cause + Effect Strategy and Marketing, said, “(T)he insights pulled through NLP are… still fantastic to non-analysts. If that person can interact with Alexa or a chatbot…to access insights, we should nurture that. With NLP, it’s not just analytics on demand, it’s analytics the way you want them… and the ways that are easiest to consume.”

Sisense was “positioned in the top quartile for its vision on product strategy, which is supported by a solid development roadmap with innovative capabilities. As workforce diversity helps with innovation, it is noteworthy that more than 30% of leadership positions in Sisense are held by women, above the industry average.” Kudos. Refreshing. Rare.

Business Intelligence: Managing Data Complexity with Analytics

With Sisense now a part of its solution, Profit Tools can offer more insights to its customers. A typical scenario would be for a customer to receive corporate profitability data that differs from the level of the previous month. “The analytics layer provided by Sisense allows our customers to find out what component costs are affecting profitability,” Widell explains. “They might find that the fuel cost is the same, but that unbilled waiting time has gone up. Then they could find out whether the drivers are being delayed at a port or rail terminal or at the customer’s facility. Once they know the cause, they can start considering options for solving the problem.”

Analytics Expedite Mortgage Reports

TruHome is a mortgage banking Credit Union Service Organization (CUSO) that provides a full range of private-label services to credit unions throughout the country.

Why Companies Aren’t Using Unified Data And BI in Their Marketing Campaigns

“’We use Sisense BI because of its ability to easily merge diverse and siloed data sets that exist inside and outside of a company’s four walls,’ (explained John Loury, President of Cause and Effect Strategy, a marketing and analytics agency based in upstate New York.) ‘In some cases, we can connect in near real-time and aggregate data sources like Facebook, Salesforce, and Google Analytics that are siloed, along with data that’s stored internally like sales, accounting, (and) homegrown CRM…'”

Why Brick And Mortar Retailers Need E-Commerce-Style Data Tracking Methods

With the help of the Sisense business intelligence platform, Erea’s dashboards are taking this seemingly intangible data and turning it into usable, actionable tips for retailers. This dashboard makes it possible to collect, analyze and employ data that improves the user experience to increase sales. A store manager can go to a management-only dashboard view and see exactly what combination of category, brand or supplier is the one with the worst results against the day before, or against the same day the year before, or any comparison timeframe desired. That way store managers can focus immediately on what needs the most attention that specific morning.
