  • How to Engage Buyers & Sellers in Your Digital Marketplace
    How to Engage Buyers & Sellers in Your Digital Marketplace Jeff Nolan, CMO, Kahuna and Sigrid Zeuthen, Marketing Manager, Besedo Recorded: Oct 3 2018 53 mins
    A whopping 94% of companies see higher engagement and conversion rates (Econsultancy) when they commit to optimizing the customer experience.

    In today’s competitive landscape, where buyers and sellers have numerous sites to choose from, marketplaces must do whatever they can to stand apart from others. It’s easy to be competitive on price and inventory, but delivering an effective and memorable customer experience to create a loyal user base is a whole different ball game. Customer experience is the deal-maker (or deal-breaker) for marketplaces.

    To ensure your platform will create committed, engaged buyers and sellers for the long-term, you must meet their expectations for a high quality and highly personalized experience throughout the customer journey. This means going beyond sending emails with a “Hello [First Name]” greeting; it means personalizing and polishing every component of the user’s interaction with the platform and with each other. The result? An increase in engagement, conversion, and retention.

    In this webinar, you’ll learn:
    -How to create an engaging onboarding experience that fosters buyer and seller stickiness
    -How to optimize for engagement at every buyer/seller touchpoint across your site
    -How to further encourage buyer and seller engagement post-transaction
    -How to incorporate personalization into every aspect of your user flow and deliver an unmatched customer experience as a result

  • How AI-Powered Consumer Messaging Can Help You Engage & Retain More Customers
    How AI-Powered Consumer Messaging Can Help You Engage & Retain More Customers Sameer Patel Oct 17 2018 6:00 pm UTC 62 mins
    91% of consumers unsubscribe from emails. 60% of consumers opt out of push notifications. $280 billion is abandoned in digital shopping carts every year. Only 32% of customers make a second purchase with a brand within the same year.
    What do these startling facts about consumer habits tell us as marketers? Consumers’ attention and loyalty are not guaranteed. In fact, it’s an uphill battle for brands to stand out from the noise and compel consumers to not only listen to them but to buy from them, too.

    The great news is that AI technology is helping modern e-commerce brands take this challenge head-on by understanding the consumer at the individual level and then only sending them messages that are relevant, contextual, and timely, all in real time. As a result, consumers develop a deep connection to the brand as the brand starts meeting their expectations of a highly personalized experience time and time again. The brand starts to see an improvement in message engagement and conversion…and the rest is history.

    If an e-commerce marketer is struggling with one of the following problems, this webinar is for them:

    -Stagnant or decreasing marketing metrics: acquisition, engagement, conversion, revenue, and retention
    -Relying too heavily on demographic segmentation methods to “understand” the audience
    -Not having campaigns that are differentiated enough from competitors’
    -Trying to figure out how to survive and stand out amid the dominance of Amazon

    La Data Virtualization au service de la BI self-service
    Comment livrer les données aux métiers de manière agile sans compromettre sécurité, gouvernance et performance.

    Comment combler le fossé entre l'IT et le métier pour livrer les données aux utilisateurs qui en ont vraiment besoin sans compromettre la sécurité et la protection des informations?

    Grâce à la BI self-service, les utilisateurs métier peuvent générer leurs propres rapports, exécuter leurs requêtes et effectuer leurs analyses sans toujours dépendre du département IT. Résultat: le temps d'obtention des rapports est plus court et les métiers peuvent prendre de meilleures décisions plus rapidement.

    Cependant, lorsque l'accès aux données est démocratisé, il faut une plateforme intégrant des informations provenant de sources multiples afin d'éviter l'anarchie des données; quel Data Analyst n'a pas été confronté aux problèmes d'accès aux sources de données pertinentes, à devoir effectuer diverses opérations de transformations et de calculs sur les données qui ne pourront être réutilisés par d'autres, à ne pas pouvoir trouver tous les jeux de données qu'il pourrait utiliser comme il le ferait dans un catalogue?

    Dans ce webinar en français d'1 heure, vous verrez comment la Data Virtualization permet de satisfaire aussi bien les besoins des métiers que ceux de l'IT, en accélérant et en améliorant les initiatives de libre-service, en offrant aux utilisateurs une vue globale de toutes les données à sa disposition et en assurant une vue cohérente dans les différents domaines de l'entreprise :

    - Abstraction / création de vues

    - Pour les utilisateurs métiers : le Data Catalog, aspects abstraction et connectivité (gains de temps pour les analystes)

    - Pour l'IT : suivi / monitoring, sécurité/gouvernance

    - Machine Learning MPP

    [Ep.1] What's Big in BI: An Ethical Foundation for the AI-Driven Future Harry Glaser, Co-founder and CEO of Periscope Data and Erin Junio, Content Manager at BrightTALK Oct 23 2018 4:00 pm UTC 60 mins
    This webinar is part of BrightTALK's What's Big in BI series.

    What is the moral responsibility of a data team today? As artificial intelligence and machine learning technologies become part of our everyday life and as data and big data insights become accessible to everyone, CDOs and data teams are taking on a very important moral role as the conscience of the corporation.

    In this episode of What's Big in BI, Harry Glaser highlights the risks companies will face if they don't empower data teams to lead the way for ethical data use across a variety of functions including business intelligence, analytics, big data initiatives and more.

    Harry founded Periscope Data in 2012 with co-founder Tom O’Neill. The two have grown Periscope Data to serve more than 1000 customers. Glaser was previously at Google, and graduated from the University of Rochester with a bachelor’s degree in computer science.

  • A Tactical Approach to Debugging Queries
    A Tactical Approach to Debugging Queries Charlotte Campbell, Senior Customer Solutions Engineer Oct 25 2018 5:00 pm UTC 60 mins
    For some people, learning a new coding language is easy. For others, the process involves stumbling through a series of individual error messages. When that language has at least 7 major dialects with unique error messaging formats, things get even more confusing. The ability to break down code, understand errors, read documentation and re-write queries are valuable skills all coders and analysts should have. Luckily, there are some tips and tricks to make it easier.

    To enhance the learning process, Charlotte Campbell, senior customer solutions engineer and resident debugger at Periscope Data, has put together a collection of advice to help first-time coders write SQL that runs smoothly.

    Join Charlotte on October 25th, 2018 at 10 a.m. PDT as she walks through how to:
    - Understand differences in SQL database syntax
    - Interpret error messages properly
    - Format your code for easy reading and debugging
    - Trace through long code to locate an error without error line numbers

    - The first question to ask when building a data visualization
    - The different types of data relationships
    - When to use each type of chart
