We belong to a hyper-connected world these days where each and every step we take is an onslaught of data. So for this world what we need is something to get hold of the immense data surge and draw necessary insights from them. Especially in the world of business these data and their patterns can reveal much about the future needs and thereby help in enhancing sales to a great extent.
Data is overwhelming. This immense volume and variety of data can be collected, processed and the useful information can be used to enhance sales and fine tune the marketing strategies. AI thus allows you to identify the patterns and helps to provide quick, personalized and appropriate services to the right customers.
But the only solution to the query how the unfathomable data can be converted to a meaningful stream of data generating valuable insights is Artificial Intelligence.
So are you already into AI?
You might be oblivious to the fact but anyone who uses a computer or smartphone these days is leveraging the concept of AI already! Like the face recommendation feature in Facebook, the product recommendation of Amazon uses the machine learning algorithms.
What does AI mean to you?
Artificial Intelligence has already captured a huge amount of the market and is transforming the customer’s expectations in a massive way. Generations have flipped and technologies have been adopted in a way like never before. If a customer now walks into a shop the retailer must be aware that he has a smart device in his pocket and the person is pretty much updated with all the aspects of the product. So even the retailers should be one step ahead and be aware of the customer’s preferences antecedently. This concept is prevalent across all types of business as the customers are no more oblivious that you have their data and at the same time they expect you to do a lot more with that data you hold. Expectation re-worded: a more quick, smart and personalized engagement from their end.
How will Salesforce Einstein make a change?
So if Salesforce is put into appropriate use then it can act like an extremely suited tool to feed the data to Einstein from the customer and social data to the activity data (i.e from email, Chatter, calendar, etc).
