Among all the trends and buzzwords currently shaking up the marketing industry, one concept is emerging as the one to watch: customer experience (CX). Providing individual customers with the best possible experience is becoming the top priority at the moment, even to the point where experience outshines product quality(!) as the main differentiator. This is confirmed by a recent Gartner1 survey, in which 86 percent of participating companies listed customer experience as the main factor for gaining a competitive advantage, compared with merely 36 percent in 2012.

With decisions riding on the timeliness and quality of analytics, business stakeholders are less patient with delays in the development of new applications that provide reports, analysis, and access to diverse data itself. Executives, managers, and frontline personnel fear that decisions based on old and incomplete data or formulated using slow, outmoded, and limited reporting functionality will be bad decisions. A deficient information supply chain hinders quick responses to shifting situations and increases exposure to financial and regulatory risk—putting a business at a competitive disadvantage. Stakeholders are demanding better access to data, faster development of business intelligence (BI) and analytics applications, and agile solutions in sync with requirements.
