How to choose the right partner.

DURATION:50 minutes

Tools for data-driven marketing intelligence—like marketing dashboards and scorecards—are now a top priority. It’s the right instinct and very timely, but getting meaningful insight from raw marketing data requires a lot of data management work before you boot up the software. Either your tool, your team, or your software partner needs to handle each step or you’ll be left with blind spots.

Join Beckon CEO Jennifer Zeszut for a look at the tools available—data visualization tools like Domo and Tableau, full-service BI platforms like BusinessObjects and MicroStrategy, and marketing intelligence tools like Beckon. Learn what to expect from each solution across all the steps of marketing data management and reporting that must occur before your dashboard will work for you, including:

  1. Data intake
  2. Data cleansing and normalization
  3. Data enrichment
  4. Data storage
  5. Report design
  6. Data visualization
