Before the arrival of data analytics, marketers were forced to probe past consumer buying behavior, and enlist those findings in extrapolating their future actions. With the advent of real-time analytics of individual and industry-wide customer data, marketers can chart a course of action based not on what happened in the past, but what’s taking place in the present. This greater grasp of real-time customer and prospect buying sentiments enables them to forge tighter relationships with their targets. That in turn helps them craft more personalized marketing messages than ever before.

We parse the latest trends in data analytics, showing how staying abreast of these trends can help marketers present customers with up-to-date, personalized messages.
