Social media has introduced an entirely new source of insight into the consumer sentiments that drive shopping and purchasing behavior. But to get a complete picture of the customer, we have to sift through and analyze massive amounts of this unstructured text and combine it with other traditional customer data sources such as CRM and Call Center applications. Then, just like a puzzle, the picture becomes clearer and clearer as the customer pieces come together.

Using advanced text and entity analytics to define, extract and represent entities such as people, organizations and products, along with their relationships, can help us build more comprehensive consumer profiles that can be leveraged to improve customer retention and acquisition, campaign management, and lead generation.

Join this session to learn how social media analytics can help you know your customers so you can give them what they want and keep them coming back.

Topics to be covered in this session:
- Challenges in trying to analyze social media data
- New analytic approaches (text, entity, predictive) to analyze the variety of customer data
- Business use cases referencing real-world client examples
- Demonstration of social media analytics in action
- Future of social media & customer analytics
- How to begin using social media analytics in your organization
