  • AI facts vs fiction: AI business decisions that really work
    AI facts vs fiction: AI business decisions that really work Avinash Gangadharan, Sr Director of Engineering, Walmart Recorded: Oct 10 2017 61 mins
    Artificial intelligence was Gartner’s top 2017 strategic technology trend, and the year isn’t over yet. But for too many companies, AI myths are persistent, use cases and strategies are still on the “shiny new thing” level, and expectations continue to hover in the spirit of Skynet/HAL, making it hard to determine whether it’s really right for your company.

    As AI technologies multiply, how do you sort fact from fiction? Should you stop daydreaming about replacing your entire staff with chatbots — or can you start augmenting agent abilities? Most importantly, while AI undoubtedly has shown real-live ROI in case study after case study, where is the particular value in chasing the AI buzz for your own company?

    Register now for our our latest VB Live event and find out. We’ll be tackling the AI legends and the AI realities, breaking down the potential AI has for your bottom line, and giving you a glimpse of the future of AI for business.

    In this webinar, you’ll explore:
    * Myths and realities of AI replacing vs. augmenting staff functions
    * How to bake AI into your business strategy
    * On- and offline use cases for AI
    * The future of AI for business

    Technology is shaping society but is it making us uncomfortable? From connected devices, to chatbots, how can brands build and maintain trust in this rapidly-evolving world?
    Join us on November 2nd as we draw insights from Connected Life, our 56-country study, to explore the hidden dangers of trust online to help brands answer some tough questions:
    • Is connectivity improving or eroding customer relationships?
    • When it comes to personal data, are we on the losing end of an unfair exchange, and what can businesses do to rebuild trust?
    • How is a world of self-serving or fake information eroding consumer trust in brand messages?
  • Centralizing Intelligence to Power Individualized Experiences
    Centralizing Intelligence to Power Individualized Experiences Liz Miller, CMO Council, Mark Swenson,Teradata and Peter Francis, T-Mobile Nov 9 2017 6:00 pm UTC 75 mins
    True one-to-one interaction is considered the holy grail of customer experience. However, according to a recent CMO Council study, only 7 percent of marketers are able to consistently create these individualized experiences across all channels.

    For the third and final webinar of this series, the CMO Council and Teradata are concluding the conversation around shaping customer experiences by focusing on the importance of coordinated cross-channel messaging through a centralized hub for all customer interactions—one that listens to all interactions, automatically tells marketing channels when and about what to say based on all the latest data and machine-learning analytics, and applies contact governance so that your marketing is smart and optimized, not fragmented by channel.

    During this one-hour webinar, our expert panel will share insights around how companies can build one central messaging hub for all customer interactions, regardless of channel. Marketers can elevate their marketing with a marketing hub to optimize and coordinate messaging, analytics and data so that the messaging automatically shifts, whether it’s time to sell or time to provide customer care, ensuring that each interaction is good for the customer and the brand. A featured brand expert will also share their company’s challenges in this area, as well as the steps they have taken in order to create consistent cross-channel messaging for the customer and make one-to-one experiences a reality for their organization.

    Among the topics to be discussed:

    • Challenges to achieving a full, cohesive view of all customer interactions
    • How to balance multiple customer interaction strategies amid the focus on clicks and conversions
    • Industry best practices and results from marketers who are coordinating their
    marketing in a hub and how it has elevated their marketing

    Of the tools in a marketer’s kit these days, some are just too powerful to save for later. This session brings together three of the industry’s top minds to provide practical recommendations on the opportunities marketers need to action as soon as possible:

    * Omnichannel - through recent case studies, learn how you can start tackling cross-channel, personalization, and customer journeys for incremental successes that will pay dividends.
    * Programmatic - discover how automated media buying can reduce costs and create better engagement with customers, and how to know if it’s right for you.
    * Measurement Framework - without a measurement framework, you won’t know what part of your marketing efforts are working, and which are wasted. Learn how a measurement framework aligns the business goals to specific KPIs so you can double-down on what matters.
