Hybrid cloud data analytics firm Actian is shipping a new solution to simplify and accelerate the delivery of customer insights. 


The Actian Avalanche Customer 360 analytics solution enables companies to rapidly personalize the customer experience. It does so by using a variety of data-driven approaches, including: micro-segmentation, holistic customer profiles, next-best action and market basket analysis.


Notably, Actian's Avalanche Customer 360 is a service built upon Actian's Avalanche hybrid cloud data warehouse and lets companies easily leverage data across multiple silos.  


Actian's Customer 360 solution also enables organizations to quickly and dynamically transform diverse data into useful analytics. These types of customer insight would help companies improve their customer acquisition and retention, said Vikas Mathur, Actian's senior vice present of products.  


"Organizations need to react quickly to changes in buyer behavior, but data silos and the lack of strategic, easy-to-use analytical tools are holding them back," Mathur said, adding. "Actian's Avalanche Customer 360 Real-time Analytics bridges the gap, giving workers of all technical abilities valuable tools they can use to harness existing data sources to generate actionable insight in the business moment." 


Avalanche data can be migrated easily, which enables users to stay connected to tools they were using to analyze and visualize Customer 360 data, Mathur added. 


Recent research also supports companies' need to improve how to render diverse raw data into deep and rapid customer insights.


451 Research's Sheryl Kingstone noted, "Data silos are really a barrier to implementing Customer 360 in this data-driven customer experience economy." She added that today, data silos "are rampant" across industries, with large organizations having at least eleven-plus silos of customer data. But data sprawl is not just a problem for the largest companies. "Even small organizations have five, six, or seven silos of customer data," Kingstone added.
