Data experts predict the trends for 2013

Leading data practitioners from brands including Littlewoods and Thomson Holidays give their view on the vital trends in data insight expected this year.


In this first of two videos looking at the year ahead, analytics manager at TUI UK Alexandra Bontoux, managing partner at Qifasolutions Peter Crayfourd, head of database marketing at Immediate Media Andy Hazell, head of UK marketing for Experian Simon Rose and head of CRM for Shop Direct Group Bernard Page identify how marketers should be looking to work with customer data in 2013.

Issues flagged up include the integration of social media data into single customer views and the need to identify what information can actually help you make a decision.
