Using Big Data Analytics for Stronger Customer Support

Deloitte University Press just released the key findings from the 2013 social business global executive study and research project, focused on the increasing emphasis businesses are placing on social media and why some companies are lagging behind.


While social business has many facets, sentiment analysis and marketing intelligence is a growing trend in how we engage with customers. The report notes that “companies are connecting with dissatisfied customers before their complaints spread and providing support wherever customers gather online.”


Gaining that level of insight means analyzing mountains of data from personal blogs, Twitter, Facebook and all other forms of social media in real time to get a better understanding of customer needs. Extracting value from the volume, velocity and variety of data is a challenge to any organization.
