Optimising Anonymous Users

Tom Betts, Head of Web Analytics, Financial Times

Anonymity distinguishes much of the web analytics industry from traditional BI or customer analytics. Today's hot topics are data integration and the combination of all of these disciplines. There are still a number of web owners (especially in media) who don't have the customer data to integrate with their web data. This presentation will focus on techniques for building and deploying predictive analytics aimed at anonymous users e.g. to be used in marketing, to encourage purchase or to increase on-site engagement.

A Customer Experience Measurement Framework Mark Twain Would Love

Neil Mason, Consultancy Director, Foviance

With site-centric data, mobile data, user-generated data... how do you manage and structure it all in a way that tells a story? Neil maps out a coherent measurement framework that helps a business understand the relationship between metrics. Whether or not you use a framework from the HEART (happiness, engagement, adoption, retention, and task success), you must gather a wide variety of data and apply proper rigour and coherence to the effort. You must also heed the words of Mark Twain when he said, "All generalizations are false, including this one," and "It's no wonder that truth is stranger than fiction. Fiction has to make sense."
