Customer Intelligence: Marketing Transformed through Data
Mobile and web technologies generate massive amounts of data. Clients can contact businesses directly. They expect relevant responses, new services, personalized offers, and more transparency. Today companies are attempting to respond to these new needs by placing customers at the heart of their marketing strategies.
This new economic and organizational paradigm means companies must train or recruit specialized Data Scientists capable of extracting and analyzing relevant and personalized data via different interaction and sales channels.
Customer Intelligence based on robust Data Science and Artificial Intelligence tools has become an essential part of businesses’ strategies, regardless of the sector in which they operate.
The Mastère Spécialisé® Data Science pour la Connaissance Client responds directly to this need for expertise.
