Businesses should be rejoicing over the abundance of rich, multi-layered data streams that are being produced by users on social networks around the world. Yet the majority of businesses find the explosion in big social data daunting and difficult to apply to the traditional methods of reaching and understanding buyers. The good news is social data presents a near perfect, unfiltered data set devoid of user bias and other skewed data samples. It delivers the unfiltered personal voices of millions of users resulting in never before realized intelligence and revolutionary quantities of opportunities. Businesses simply need to know how to tame the social data monster.

Join us for an educational and informative discussion on the fundamentals of how social data can be combined from different sources to portray a multi-layered and rich view of breaking events, customer opinion, market trends, brand reputations, and competitive positions.

  • How to combine, refine, interpret, analyze, and report results in real-time.
  • How the unique characteristics of data sources bring their own value to the social cocktail with each network having its own attributes, audience and modes of interaction.
  • What real-time data means for the future of marketing, business intelligence, customer service, supply chain management, sales, and product development.
