dictating how companies reach them and cater to their needs. Brands
are struggling to maintain as well to capture new market share and
connect with consumers in a far more personalized ways than ever
before. To prosper, bleeding-edge marketers are fundamentally
rethinking the way they plan, target, activate and optimize their
marketing campaigns using Big Data from thousands of different
sources like media, social, weather, purchase, and loyalty to
ultimately drive sales impact and grow their businesses.
