Why Integrated Analytics Should Drive Your Marketing Strategy

The myriad ways in which consumers interact with brands, grow more complex and sophisticated with each passing year. Digital points of engagement are constantly on the rise and marketers face mounting challenges in understanding, assimilating and then responding to the needs and wants of their customers.

Unlocking Consumer Parallelism through Analytics

Being a middle school student is not as simple as it used to be. Today it is all about group projects, hands-on experiments, and research-intensive assignments. And however tech-savvy most children are these days, it’s up to the parents to provide a little support when it comes to internet research on suggestions, ideas, and information beyond the textbook. In fact, as the father of a young boy, a lot of my own Google search terms are along the lines of: ‘scale model of the solar system’, ‘molecular structure of hydrocarbons’ and famous historical characters like Lala Lajpat Rai and Nelson Mandela.
