In HR, working purely on instinct is dangerous. HR Professionals are highly skilled, and their experienced opinion is extremely valuable when it comes to selecting candidates, assessing performance, and all the other important aspects of this function. But can you rely on their instinct alone? This was the big question that our client, a large CPG company was facing. When we realized this was the problem, the solution was obvious. Not necessarily easy, but obvious. There was plenty of data, but it wasn't being used to improve HR decision making. We designed an analytics solution that would improve HR Decision making. We designed an analytics solution that would improve the efficiency of data gathering, to make the HR function more effective. We then proposed an additional layer, which would use artificial intelligence (AI) to improve HR Decision-making further.

Recruiting leaders know that if their companies aren’t sourcing and hiring for diversity they are missing valuable talent and experience. This is one of the reasons diversity has been a focus area for improvement in recent years. Many organizations start with training. While diversity training is important for creating awareness, it doesn’t a¬ffect human behavior. A 2017 meta-analysis of studies investigating bias training confirmed this. Formal training can reduce unconscious bias, but it does not change behavior.13 This has put talent leaders in a di cult position. The way to make real progress on diversity hiring initiatives is by using systematic processes that apply data-driven decision making. With structured interviews and AI, you can overcome unconscious bias and make hiring more equitable for all candidates.

Your employees, customers, and partners need the ability to connect and collaborate, at any time, from any location—across time zones or simply across the conference table. And those workplaces are expanding faster than ever, powered by mobile and cloud usage that makes virtual meetings essential. With scalable and secure voice, video, and content sharing, real-time collaboration can happen anywhere. Staying connected can lead to improved productivity and faster decision-making, as well as better customer service. But only if the technology offers a seamless experience and is intuitive enough to drive user adoption. While the need for better meetings is universal, not all conferencing tools are the same. Choosing the wrong tool could actually decrease productivity by wasting valuable meeting time troubleshooting the technology, or by providing a negative experience that will deter users from embracing it. This is especially true in situations where poor meeting quality could impact

Today’s marketers are leveraging technology and data to drive decision making: demand gen, marketing communications, and other disciplines can strongly demonstrate their value with metrics that summarize tangible bottomline impact on the business. That hasn’t been true for PR. In PR, we’re still tied to legacy metrics that are more about counting mentions and ‘clips’ than about measuring business impact.

Location analytics is the process of integrating geographical data into business intelligence (BI) and analytics-led decision making. Location analytics creates meaningful insight from relationships found in geospatial data to solve a broad variety of business and social problems. Location data is found everywhere – with an item or a device, in a conversation or behavior, in machines or sensors, tied to a customer or competitor, attached to a database record or recorded from vehicles or other moving objects. Organizations want to take advantage of location data to improve decisions, create better customer engagement and experiences, reduce risks and automate business processes.

Better health care at lower costs, for everyone – how do health care providers get there? Understanding the gaps in patient care, patient needs, and the geographic distribution of the patient population are important elements to consider when making decisions about improving the quality of care and reducing its costs. To effectively analyze gaps in patient care, the data needs to be in a single place or system. However, in many organizations, data is spread across a myriad of spreadsheets and database systems. Data not organized for visual exploration and coherent analysis isn’t useful for decision making. Hence the need for visually appealing and scalable analytical tools to help organizations be more efficient, effective and economically successful.

So, while the advertising industry is in the midst of profound change, it’s hard to be certain about the form that it will take in future. There’s good reason to be optimistic, rather than pessimistic. Firstly, as we saw earlier, the proliferation of digital platforms means that there are now more canvases for creativity than ever before. And secondly, recent discoveries in psychology and behavioural science have highlighted how human decision making – in any context – is often unconscious or non-rational. As a result, the range of problems where creative communication can offer a solution is wider than ever previously realised.

Findings confirmed that online reviews are an essential part of the healthcare consumer’s decision-making. In this report, we’ll look at the key findings in detail

For increasing numbers of organizations, the new reality for development, deployment and delivery of applications and services is hybrid cloud. Few, if any, organizations are going to move all their strategic workloads to the cloud, but virtually every enterprise is embracing cloud for a wide variety of requirements. To accelerate innovation, improve the IT delivery economic model and reduce risk, organizations need to combine data and experience in a cognitive model that yields deeper and more meaningful insights for smarter decisionmaking. Whether the user needs a data set maintained in house for customer analytics or access to a cloud-based data store for assessing marketing program results — or any other business need — a high-performance, highly available, mixed-load database platform is required.

There is a great misconception that the purpose of attribution modelling is to arrive at a singular, concrete truth; however, the reality is much more nuanced. Attribution modeling is actually an ongoing process of improving how we measure marketing’s impact in order to improve our decision making over time. There are a number of attribution principles that still confuse marketers: Why is attribution a process and not an end state? Why is making small steps forward really better than doing nothing? Why does the perfect attribution model not exist? What makes attribution an ROI investment and not a cost center? With the many attribution myths, challenges, and philosophies in mind, AdRoll and Econsultancy have partnered for a second year in a row to produce The State of Marketing Attribution 2017. This time around we’ve broaden our focus beyond Europe to include content that also covers North America and Asia-Pacific.

As the approach to strategic business decision making becomes more and more data driven, a method for consolidating our various data sets, which are often spread across multiple systems becomes exceedingly important. Two of the biggest players in data driven decision making are website analytics platforms and customer relationship management systems. The former includes accumulating data on top of the funnel behavior such as site traffic origins, lead generation, content consumption tracking, device usage, and overall site behavior. While the latter has a focus more on bottom of the funnel activity such as lead nurturing, customer status, lifetime value, etc. Lastly, without communication between these two essential platforms, a complete understanding of your customers, from lead to longtime client, may never be possible. A web analytics (Google Analytics) and CRM integration provides you with a 360 degree view of your customer base, so that you can understand not just what PPC efforts
