    Industry analysts believe that “eighty-nine percent of companies plan to compete primarily on the basis of the customer experience.” To fulfill this vision in the manufacturing industry, the role of master data management (MDM) has been strategically evolving. Now, in addition to traditional uses, MDM is helping manufacturers tackle an array of business challenges like cross-sell and upsell, vendor management, or targeted marketing campaigns. Early adopters have seen significant business advantages by using MDM to build a 360-degree view of customers across products, regions and lines of business. In fact, with a next-generation view of customers and the products they own, one $60 billion manufacturing company improved cross-sell and upsell success by five percent.

    In this webinar, Suresh Babu Balasubramanian from Wipro and Hamaad Chippa of Informatica will discuss how great customer data can help tackle some of the major strategic and operational business challenges manufacturers face. Our conversation will focus on:

    • Industry trends impacting the customer experience and need for a 360-degree view of customers

  • How to use AI in designing the customer experience How to use AI in designing the customer experience Stewart Rogers, Dir. of Marketing Technology, VentureBeat Recorded: Oct 25 2016 61 mins
    Smart marketers know that the sweet spot between AI and the org’s branding is where true customer engagement spikes. It’s not enough to give the customers what they want. It’s about giving them what they didn’t realize they wanted. Like how every time you upload a photo to your Facebook account -- its DeepFace artificial intelligence program suggests that you need to tag your friend. Or how Starwood’s bot butler “Botlr” has not only freed up staff time in Aloft properties but also underlined its brand’s enthusiasm for AI and machine learning technologies.

    It’s time to take that AI one step further. We’ll talk about how to build and design the customer experience by using AI and machine learning. We'll show you how successful companies are making tremendous strides in moving the needle toward optimized customer engagement. And what's more, we're going to show you how to get started today by taking the guesswork out of your marketing strategy.

    Join us for this hour long deep dive into using AI and machine learning to design the customer experience.

    After this webinar you'll:

    * Learn how to build a customer engagement strategy from the ground up using artificial intelligence.
    * Hear valuable tips on improving your customer engagement now

Positioned as a leader in Gartner’s Magic Quadrant for Data Quality Tools for the ninth consecutive year, Informatica is now offering an innovative, new approach to improving data quality designed specifically to turn this situation around: Cloud Data Quality Radar.

  • Squad goals:  Why cost per lead is failing your lead gen strategy Squad goals: Why cost per lead is failing your lead gen strategy Sam Yount, CMO, LendingTree Dec 13 2016 8:30 pm UTC 60 mins
    Cost per lead. It’s like your basic black dress or suit -- never lets you down and crucial in crunch time. But everything we knew about about lead generation has changed. Marketing now owns most of the IT budget and is on tap for the lion’s share of revenue generation. If we’re supposed to Always Be Closing, the marketing team is on the line to deliver qualified leads with high ROI. That’s where we start to get into trouble.

    The new world order has moved way past cost per lead into outcome-based performance. It’s not quantity anymore -- it’s quality. How do you pull your marketing lead generation strategy out of this paradigm? We’re going to walk you through it in this free and interactive executive session with VB’s own director of marketing technology, Stewart Rogers, and his panel of lead generation and demand generation experts.

    In this webinar, you will:
