Why data matters and how to harness the power of data
Oil was the economic driver of the last century. Today the world’s most valuable resource is data. It inspires progress and drives change. But to know where we need to go, we need to know what we have achieved, where progress is being made and where are the major challenges. In this new era of data-driven everything, the demand for high-quality marketing data and analytics is larger than ever before. The number of different data sources and channels is growing rapidly, and marketing analysts are being challenged to pull data from dozens of separate systems, in addition to their usual data repositories.
There’s tons of raw data material available, which is highly valuable but often too messy to use. In such cases, manually aggregating the data might be too time-consuming. More still, the data volume continues to grow each day. This demonstrates a clear need to extract and filter large amounts of complex data and transform it into something tangible, which is quick and easy to consume.
Furthermore, it is necessary to cleanse datasets by filtering and removing data that is incorrect, incomplete, duplicated or has incompatible formatting. Our customers want to quickly analyze large data volumes, in order to uncover hidden patterns, unknown correlations, short-term trends, customer behaviour and other useful business information. In addition, companies are looking for the most efficient way possible to integrate all of their data into one central hub.
Evolving data sources requires a new approach to marketing analytics
In the future, analysts will be expected to do much more than just data crunching and report generation. Analysts will have to become storytellers. It will not be enough to simply create a dashboard and send out a weekly report. With new data sources continually emerging and existing marketing channels and tools evolving, analysts will be expected to know how to:
- Collect data from new and non-traditional marketing data sources;
- Cleanse their data;
- Display data in easily digestible charts and graphs using data visualization tools;
- Transform their data into easy-to-understand stories, which help non-analysts to identify growing trends and business opportunities.
The power of data transformation
Adverity is here to help you overcome these new challenges and close your skills gap. You can empower your teams to achieve more by providing them with innovative marketing analytics tools. And this is how it works: Adverity can join data from different sources, enrich it with additional information and apply rules to certain data segments. Marketers and analysts can choose from a wide variety of functions, depending on industry or type of their business. In addition, they can scale down the amount of data, which is being transferred from the original source. Furthermore, data can be continuously updated in real-time. The end result is clean, accurate, harmonized and aligned dataset.
Why are transformations such a big deal? Having a unified data schema is the foundation of successful and high performing data analysis. Collecting data from a wide variety of sources, having the same data structure and naming conventions is essential to perform the easiest calculations. With Adverity these different formats are not a problem anymore: different dates, currencies, timezones, KPI naming and all other aspects of different metrics and dimensions are now being transformed into a consistent structure to accelerate your work.
