In many ways, today’s web marketers are like blindfolded shop-keepers. They might have a general understanding of their customers’ needs, based on site analytics and other data sources, but they do not see what their actual customers are doing across channels. Hence, they miss numerous sales and marketing opportunities—online and off.
Whether your shop is real, virtual, or a combination of the two, the more complete your customer vision, the greater the value you can provide to them and the greater value they will deliver to your bottom line.
In many enterprises, marketing is a multichannel effort that
includes a wide range of touch points. The touch points
range from websites and email promotions to traditional print
advertising, postal mail, and broadcast, and direct sales by phone and in-person sales teams. But too often, each channel works independently, accountable to its own objectives, unaware of the efforts and results made within other marketing channels. As a result, call centers speak to customers without knowing the
offers the customers previously accepted or rejected. In addition,
emails launch without reference to online promotions and
websites present messages that disregard their visitors’ previous contact history.

We’ve become a world of instant information. We carry mobile devices that answer questions in seconds and we track our morning runs from screens on our wrists. News spreads immediately across our social feeds, and traffic alerts direct us away from road closures. As consumers, we have come to expect answers now, in real time.
Until recently, businesses that were seeking information about their customers, products, or applications, in real time, were challenged to do so. Streaming data, such as website clickstreams, application logs, and IoT device telemetry, could be ingested but not analyzed in real time for any kind of immediate action. For years, analytics were understood to be a snapshot of the past, but never a window into the present. Reports could show us yesterday’s sales figures, but not what customers are buying right now.
Then, along came the cloud. With the emergence of cloud computing, and new technologies leveraging its inherent scalability and agility, streaming data
