The Market Cries: “It’s Time for a Modern Approach to MDM and Customer 360”

Fall is a busy season for trade shows and conferences. I’ve had the pleasure to be at Strata Hadoop New York, IBM World of Watson and the Chief Analytic and Data Officer Exchange within the past month and a half.  The number of conversations I’ve had about “a modern approach to MDM” is striking.  In a recent interview with Information Week, I discussed...

The Post-it Notes of the Big Data World

This past weekend I decided to tackle the mess in my basement.  In my last , I compared the modern data lake to my “thing lake” in the basement – a random collection of stuff that may, or may not, be useful.  So my big job last week was organizing my basement.  I went through every item and placed a post-it note on it – the note described what it was...

My ‘Thing Lake’ and Your Data Lake Have the Same Problem

David Corrigan’s ‘Thing Lake’ Sometimes my house gets messy.  Like a lot of people, I think “I can still use that” and I don’t want to throw away a lot of items.  So I put them in my basement utility room.  And I add more.  And more.  And I think to myself “I’ve just collected a room full of potentially useful things, and one day I’ll use one of them.” ...

Now You See Me, Now You Don’t

The Trials & Tribulations of the Anonymous Customer I bought an office chair from an office retailer a few months ago.  Seeing as I was buying something I wanted vs. something I needed immediately, I became a “strategic purchaser”.  I went to their website and looked at different chairs and narrowed it down to a few.  Although I am a loyalty...

Customer IQ – You Know it When you See It

Sometimes it is just obvious that an organization has a high Customer IQ.  I once experienced it from an electronics manufacturer.  My LCD TV was starting to break down – there were horizontal lines across the screen that appeared periodically.  It was only 4 years old, but well out of warranty.  I called the manufacturer to ask if this was a common...
