About This Course
In the age of big data, companies have more consumer information than ever before. They can use this information to target consumers, but they can also use consumer information (e.g. feedback from reviews) to improve products and services. Gaining insight from customers and understanding shifting patterns of consumer behaviour is important for companies in order to satisfy customer needs and ultimately the viability or profit-making potential of the company.
