Tibco Lays Out Architecture for Customer Interaction Management

Customer Experience Matrix

Or at least, that’s my interpretation of what led it to publish a paper on “Predictive Customer Interaction Management,” available here. The paper speeds past the niceties of why interaction management is important to reach its real topic: what a customer interaction management architecture looks like. Tibco Software ( www.tibco.com ) has been providing enterprise integration technology for what seems like forever (actually, since 1985).

BridgeTrack Integrates Some Online Channels

Customer Experience Matrix

Understanding interactions across different levels can be difficult, yet BridgeTrack provides little assistance. Actually, based on the July 2007 press release describing the BridgeTrack integration, Omniture positions itself as “online business optimization software” that provides “one standard view across all marketing initiatives”. What do “Nude Pics of Pam Anderson” and “Real-Time Analytics, Reporting and Optimization Across All Media Channels” have in common?

The Next Big Leap for Marketing Software

Customer Experience Matrix

I’m not talking about data integration or marketing planning, which are already part of the existing architectures, or even the much desired (though rarely achieved) goal of centralized customer interaction management. The initial version of this system will probably be a reporting process that gathers interactions from customer contact systems and relates them to future results.

SAS Adds Real Time Decisioning to Its Marketing Systems

Customer Experience Matrix

It is not to be confused with SAS Interaction Management, an event-detection system based on SAS's Verbind acquisition in 2002. SAS says it intends to tightly integrate RDM and Interaction Manager during 2008, but hasn’t worked out the details. I’ve been trying to pull together a post on SAS for some time. It’s not easy because their offerings are so diverse. The Web site lists 13 “Solution Lines” ranging from “Activity-Based Management” to “Web Analytics”.

Independent Teradata Makes New Friends

Customer Experience Matrix

Like Assetlink, Infor gives Teradata a quick way to offer a capability (real time interaction management, including self-adjusting predictive models) that is increasingly requested by clients and offered by competitors. Even then, though, real-time interaction flows will be defined outside of Teradata Relationship Manager. Integration will be at the data level: Teradata will provide lists of customers are eligible for different offers and will be notified of interaction results.

Neolane Offers a New Marketing Automation Option

Customer Experience Matrix

Nor, so far as I can tell, does it offer real-time interaction management—that is, gathering information about customer behavior during an interaction and determining an appropriate response. Neolane , a Paris-based marketing automation software vendor, formally announced its entry to the U.S. market last week. I’ve been tracking Neolane for some time but chose not to write about it until they established a U.S. presence. So now the story can be told.

Tableau Software Makes Good Visualization Easy

Customer Experience Matrix

But even though Tableau follows many of these principles, it is less for building charts than interactive data exploration. I took a close look recently at Tableau data visualization software. I liked Tableau a lot, even though it wasn’t quite what I expected. I had thought of it as a way to build aesthetically-correct charts, according to the precepts set down by Edward Tufte and like-minded visualization gurus such as Stephen Few.

AOL Enters Mobile Advertising with Third Screen Acquisition

Customer Experience Matrix

Nor does it address interactions across those channels, such as using email, Web and mobile in the same campaign. By messaging, I mean two-way interactions with customers.

Is Taguchi Good for Multivariate Testing?

Customer Experience Matrix

On the theoretical level, the criticism is that Taguchi assumes that there are no interactions among test variables, meaning results for each variable are not affected by the values of other variables, when such interactions are in fact common. Moreover, how would you know whether interactions existed if you didn’t test for them? Taguchi tests are generally too small to find interactions.) Taguchi proponents might argue that careful test design can avoid interactions.

SAS Survey on Marketing Measurements Gives Odd Results

Customer Experience Matrix

Still, any way you slice it, operational experiences make up the bulk of customer interactions and largely determine future behavior. SAS Institute recently released a survey of senior executives’ attitudes towards marketing performance measurement.
