SapientNitro Mobile Commerce Case Study: Using Big Data to Understand the Mobile In-store Shopping Experience(Link)

If you want to understand consumer behavior, you should be concerned with why people behave the way they do, and how you can create the data you need to answer difficult questions even where signals do not exist. So how exactly do you create instruments to test hypotheses about human experience? And how do you create the tools and visualizations for interpretive analysis?

In this presentation, Sheldon Monteiro, John Cain, and Thomas McLeish focus specifically on instrumented ecosystems: long-term deployments of related sensors into contexts of everyday life; and creating connected proprietary communities – for the long-term development and evaluation of products, services, and communications.

What is the profile of a marketing technologist?

The prominence of marketing technologists and the chief marketing technologist (or CMTO) role has greatly expanded over the past six years. Just in the past year, the topic has been featured in an article in the July-August 2014 edition of the Harvard Business Review, and the first MarTech conference completely sold out.
