9:30 am - 10:00 am Case study: How to use data to create the ideal customer experience? From big to dig data!

Everyone knows that data offers enormous potential to exponentially increase the quality of the customer experience, brand commitment and therefore customer preference. However, progress in most companies is slower than expected, mainly due to the difficulty of processing Big Data.
Hear about the new approach to adopt: "from Big to Dig Data", put the conception of the ideal customer experience first and then look for the data that will enable it to be implemented.

10:00 am - 10:30 am Case study: Emotionally smart robots - the next step in the evolution of life

Knowing your customer is not just a requirement of your compliance department. It is also a great way to identify needs and opportunities. Who knows your customer better than his or her family? This talk will present and discuss a new device category for private customers and the huge opportunities and just has huge responsibilities coming with it. Devices that behave and are treated like family members will open up additional (emotional) conversation channels to your customers, pushing evolution forward, both of technology and marketing.

What is the future of interactive content? What is the role of proactive alerts? How can you create predictive, personalised mobile experiences at scale? How can you match the message to the moment, before customers go hunting for answers?
