It is often said that "data is the new oil," which means that data has become a valuable resource in today's digital economy. Just as oil is used to fuel diverse industries, data is collected to power a wide range of businesses and technologies, including search engines, social media platforms, and data analysis tools to help better customer experience and drive business growth.
Analyzed by sophisticated algorithms and machine learning techniques, Data is used to make decisions, optimize processes, and improve products and services. It is gathered from a variety of sources such as CRMs, databases, sensors, social media posts, and transactional records.
Principles of ethical data usage
With access to large amounts of data, organizations have the power to make important decisions and take actions that can have a significant impact on society. It is therefore important to ensure that this power is used responsibly and ethically.
There are some ethical considerations that should be taken into account when handling large amounts of data. Some of these include:
Data and customer experience
Data also plays an equally critical role in customer experience.
Carefully consolidated, tied to individual identities, and enriched over time, data can help organizations gain a clear understanding of their customers as well as their needs, preferences, behavior, and other attributes. All of these insights can translate to improved marketing strategies, and with the right tools in place, real-time tweaks to customer journeys that bolster performance.
There are more straightforward use cases such as organizing data to obtain intelligence on the entire audience, such as their most active channels, overall purchase frequency, demographics, and more. With appropriate segmentation functionalities, the organization can group attributes, alter the collections with filters, and create target segments to guide marketing campaigns.
By enhancing their digital touch points with tracking tools and maintaining an individualized view of each individual, it becomes possible to deliver experiences that are seamless across interactions and channels, tailored to the evolving customer.
In the era of digital acceleration, data is key.
Data contains secrets about customers, secrets that can potentially turn aimless promotions to precisely targeted, appealingly personalized CS that leaves a lasting impression and turns strangers to loyal clients.
All the more reason to safeguard such an invaluable resource—obtained with the consent of the customer and exchange based on the promise of relevant, but not invasive, experiences.
