We are the Customer Insights team and work on a SaaS service that unifies Customer data and provide insights to enable organizations to deliver personalized Customer experiences.  

 

We started on this journey less than a year ago and just went GA in April 2019, but we haven’t lost our touch with agility or the startup culture. This team owns a charter which is among the most interesting and exciting across the industry, combining: A) machine learning B) big data scale and C) near real-time insights. This 3-pronged challenge is as tough and as cutting edge as it gets.

The technology built by this team unlocks insights from large quantities of data, and then moves from insights into the most optimal actions for businesses of all shapes and sizes. This flow quite literally translates into money earned and/or saved for the customer (typically a business or enterprise), and so this product quickly pays for itself many times over. Quite simply, this is the best and most direct benefit AI can deliver to a business.
