"Big Data - Smart Data" is one of the latest hot topics in the world of Home Improvement, as it has raised the attention of many top decision-makers of the industry. At the 3rd Global DIY Summit taking place on 11 - 12 June 2015 in London, speakers from top companies (IBM, SAP, APT and Google) will present you the key elements of data management and how to make a profit out of it.
In light of the technological revolution we have experienced in the last years, many innovative companies started to focus on how to get more information about the new consumer behavior. Many firms are willing to invest more than ever in Big Data as it is a great information tool to improve the quality of their products, the services they provide and the way they interact with their customers.
With the proliferation of real time data from sources such as mobile devices, web, social media, sensors, log files and transactional applications, the importance of Big Data has increased as it provides companies with a detailed map of the "path-to-purchase" that their consumers follow before buying any item. This information is, of course, leading to an increase in the number of sales of the companies that understand how to use this Gold Mine.
Using data to generate business value is already a reality in many industries, including the home improvement sector. With the advent of the "Internet of things", improved analytics and increased connectivity through new technology and software will bring significant significant opportunities for DIY manufacturers and retailers. Only those understanding this Retail Revolution will be able to survive in an era where the consumer has more power than ever before.
Participate in the 3rd Global DIY Summit and make your own judgement on this Retail Revolution.
