Digital analysts crunch numbers, sure. But, in order to crunch those numbers in a meaningful way, they have to truly understand how, when, and where the data gets captured in the first place. In this listener-requested episode, the guys are joined by Jeff Chasin from Adobe, who, fortuitously, has written recently on this very topic! It's a power hour that comes in at just under 39 minutes!
Fifteen years ago, digital analytics tooling was pretty straightforward (something that looks at log files). In 2015, there are literally hundreds of tools that can be used to measure every aspect of a digital sales and marketing ecosystem. Most companies still think “Google or Adobe?” when making a digital analytics tool purchase. Are they missing out? With very special guest Hiten Shah from KISSmetrics, Michael, Tim and Jim talk a little tooling and a lot of trash - in almost 60 minutes.
The power of big data is a curious thing, Make a one man weep, make another man sing. Change a hawk to a little white dove. More than a feeling that's the power of big data. As always, Huey Lewis hits the nail on the head with this complex topic. What does the phrase actually mean? How can my company take advantage of it? Michael, Tim and Jim take on big data in episode five, and try to focus in on making this hard to pin down concept understandable and relevant. All this and more in one American hour, 46 Canadian minutes.
