January 27th, Day 1

12:20 PM Achieving Personalization at Scale: Using Data & Analytics to create and sustain business value

Becoming “Amazon-like” is dependent on data, big data, analytics and making automated decisions at scale. Some examples of business value through personalization are as follows:

•    Improving Client Experience by automatically adjusting our site based on the client’s preferences, like the landing page, navigation paths, or maybe their preferred modules on any of our platforms
•    Engendering Loyalty through knowing the kind of stuff that our clients are reading, whether it’s news about a company, a press release, or a research report. Then automatically providing them investment information that’s relevant to them. All without them asking for it.

Creating this value is one thing, but sustaining the value is quite another. The latter requires a solid Data & Analytics Strategy, essential elements of which will be set forth in this presentation.
