A Guide to Making the Toughest Decision in Embedded Analytics
Buy or build? This question has tormented IT and development teams since the beginning of commercial software. When it comes to embedding analytics into your application, there is a lot to consider.

In this webinar, we’ll lay out the pros and cons of both options and explain the trade offs of embedding third-party analytics software into your application versus building and embedding your own analytics.
Review major considerations for embedded analytics
Compare creating, embedding, and managing analytics in each scenario (buy and build)

Today's customers use a combination of channels to interact with a business. Customer Journey Analytics (CJA) is the process of tracking and analyzing every touchpoint that a customer interacts with, across multiple channels and over time. This requires connecting events from multiple sources into customer-centric journeys. Both "connected data points" and "journey analysis" immediately suggest graphs but if we add the need for timeliness (even real-time) and actionable insights there is no doubt about the right technical solution. Find out how to use Neo4j to understand, visualise and influence your customers' journeys, whether that's in the form of recommendations, cause analysis or personalisation to name just a few.
In this webinar, Jesús will briefly introduce Graph Databases and then show how can they crucially enhance CJA initiatives with a Telco based example.

Every day billions of pounds worth of goods flows through the United Kingdom on time-critical journeys to distant places around the world. With Brexit looming and uncertainty still on the future scope of trade arrangements between the UK and EU, one thing is clear; technology will play a much bigger role in customs and logistics in the coming decades.
Better integrating new technology into the supply chain will limit the time getting goods in and out of ports and other border entry and exit points and will provide a solution to some of the challenges around higher consumer demand for food and non-food products.
This webinar, with our partners at DP World, will set out the new ways in which technology can help companies transiting goods from the EU and other countries and how to deal with the regulatory and customs challenges that exiting the EU will present from March.
Unforeseen events such as terrorist attacks or sudden shifts in weather, can impact on sales and footfall. In the new digital age, the real question is what are retailers doing with this knowledge? How are retail businesses using data that is now readily available to better understand risk?
