Roetzer to Present Origins of the Marketing Intelligence Engine at SXSW Interactive

Posted by Taylor Radey on March 12, 2015

Editor's Note: This post has been updated to include the SXSW 2015 slide deck. See below.

Marketing automation platforms save time, improve efficiency and increase productivity. They give companies an unprecedented ability to understand buyers, identify opportunities, track campaign performance and link marketing activities to business outcomes. 

But, they do not provide insight into the billions of bits of data being created as consumers move from screen to screen and interact online and offline with brands.

Humans are limited by their biases, beliefs, education, experiences, knowledge and brainpower. All of these things contribute to our finite ability to process information, build strategies and achieve performance potential.

Algorithms, in contrast, have an almost infinite ability to process information. They possess the power to understand natural language queries, identify patterns and anomalies, and parse massive data sets to deliver recommendations better, faster and cheaper than people can.

What inevitably comes next are marketing intelligence engines that process data and recommend actions to improve performance based on probabilities of success.


Live Session March 14, 3:30 – 4:30 CT
