Given the explosion of data and the plethora of new technologies available to harness it, marketing leaders must determine what tools they can use to efficiently and effectively understand their customers better. Simultaneously, marketers are being pressed to demonstrate the value of their products/services across multiple channels in order to convince today’s economically constrained customer, while also building a relationship between the customer and the brand that is personal and valuable.
