Free Data as in Free Beer

Customer Experience Matrix

The only exhibitor that did catch my eye was Data-Planet , which aggregates data on many topics (think census, economic time series, stocks, weather, etc.) None of this would have really impressed me until I heard the price: $495 per user per year. Let me make clear that we’re talking about LOTS of data: “hundreds of public and price industry sources” as the company brochure puts it.

Just How Scalable Is QlikTech?

Customer Experience Matrix

August 3, 2007) I asked QlikTech itself for more information on the topic but haven’t learned anything new. By contrast, most business intelligence tools must pre-aggregate large data sets to deliver fast response. This lets reports construct aggregates by grouping records according to ad hoc formulas.

The Right Way to Think about Marketing Mix Models

Customer Experience Matrix

A serious marketing mix model considers competitive activities, product pricing, retail distribution and in-store promotion. I also question whether tools that predict aggregate sales by period can also project customer lifetime value.
