From the Inside Flap
Every corporation in the world is using big data to some degree. The winners in today′s data–driven environment create cultures that embrace big data in order to outshine the competition.
The Big Data–Driven Business shows what it takes to create a thriving business culture that has intense focus on the customer by analyzing data, by being open to the truths it reveals, and by having the guts to act on those conclusions in order to prevail in the marketplace. The benefits of big data are available to any company, any size, in any industry. In this vital resource, Russell Glass and Sean Callahan offer real–world examples that act as an invaluable guide to establish a system that gathers and analyzes the data being generated by customers for delivering insights and revealing opportunities that can′t be realized any other way. Once an effective big data system is established, competitive advantage and outsized shareholder value are bound to follow.
The marketplace has entered an era where the customer holds all the cards. With unprecedented choice in both the consumer world and the B2B world, it′s imperative that businesses gain a greater understanding of their customers and prospects.

The most effective strategy ties together the elements of this software, which is known as the marketing stack. With this insight about the target market, not only can the marketing team serve relevant messages to the right people at the right time, it can also anticipate their needs and perhaps even create the products their customer base didn′t even know it wanted.
Better information allows for better decisions, better targeting, and better reach. Big data has become an indispensable tool for the most effective marketers in the business, and it′s becoming a necessity for businesses that want to thrive. Remaining relevant as the marketplace evolves requires a full understanding and application of big data, and The Big Data–Driven Business provides the practical guidance businesses need.

"Big data is the most disruptive business force there is. Big data is the stuff that is really moving economic power from one group to another. Sean and Russ′s book illuminates why it′s happening, how it′s happening, and how businesses can take advantage."
Geoffrey Moore, author of Crossing the Chasm, The Gorilla Game, and Inside the Tornado
"I think the concept in this book that businesses need to develop a culture of being open to data is 100% spot on, and I think the Obama for America 2008 campaign was a great example of this."
Dan Siroker, CEO and cofounder of Optimizely, former Advisor to The White House, and Director of Analytics, Obama for America 2008 Campaign

Most Helpful Customer Reviews on Amazon.com (beta)
I was struck by two points. First, a business simply can't ignore the digital opportunity; by the time you actually see a customer, they almost certainly have interacted with your brand in several different ways. Anyone going into marketing or branding has to be comfortable working in this world. Second, it is complicated. There are so many different technologies and platforms; at times I found the book over-whelming.
Still, as the authors emphasize, the key is to get started: learn, test and progress. Begin with small steps. This book will get you moving forward.
The book focuses on how big data can help marketing through much of its content.
