Customer data and analytics have become an imperative part of customer experience. With constantly rising customer expectations and an increasing demand for a quicker service and highly personalised interactions across multiple touch points, the only way you can achieve all this to ensure you’re providing an excellent CX is by truly knowing your customers.

Furthermore, 29 per cent of CX practitioners cite Data and Analytics as one of the top 3 trends currently impacting the industry – showing the big focus on Data and Analytics within CX today.
