For decades, the biggest obstacle to a company’s effective use of regression analytics wasn’t the math. No matter the excellence of the data science team, the process of getting the necessary insights was usually too slow, too hard to scale, and too hard to consume for it to be operationally relevant.
Salesforce, the global leader in CRM, kept hearing its customers express their desire for a breakthrough in marketing analytics, and it moved fast to meet the need. Leonardo Carbonara, global product management leader at Salesforce Marketing Cloud, said, “Covid19 accelerated digital transformation and made omnichannel marketing a matter of survival for most brands. In this all-digital world, businesses must embrace new operational and analytical approaches that help them overcome the increasing complexity of their marketing processes and drive business outcomes across teams and functional lines. Salesforce sees Proof as ‘the missing piece’ to deliver true closed-loop marketing. The combined solution from Salesforce and Proof solves these customer challenges in a single stroke by integrating Proof’s agile marketing planning and automated marketing optimization with the automated data downloads from Salesforce Sales and Commerce clouds, Datorama’s advanced customer journey mapping, and Salesforce Marketing Cloud’s highly scalable real-time personalization and messaging capabilities.”
Dr. Petyo Bonev, professor of applied and theoretical econometrics and artificial intelligence at the University of St. Gallen in Switzerland, said, “The advantages of real time analysis are crucial to enable the delivery of a quick and agile marketing strategy amidst rapid change and volatility. Using automation to substantially reduce the time-to-value for complex modeling is potentially of enormous value to the user, and the highly automated Proof platform has reduced typical business modeling from many hours and even days to just a few minutes per model. In addition, the automated recompute of models means that if new data is being provisioned daily, the recompute also happens daily, meaning that a marketer would have fully updated causal, predictive and prescriptive analytics regarding any given model in more than enough time to understand changing marketplace conditions and alter course in a time-effective way.”
