Challenges and opportunities of “big data” in the business of online
This presentation will discuss the business of online: the data it creates, the nature of problems it faces day to day and the types of people that are needed to find solutions to those problems. In the business of online there’s more data than anyone knows what to do with. The digitisation of our lives is creating an unprecedented amount of information about us and how we interact with the world around us.
Over 80% of Australians are using the Internet at least once a month; about 70% are on Facebook; more than half are accessing the Web via a mobile device, the majority of those via a smartphone. The average Australian spends a staggering 22 hours online per week clicking, browsing, friending, “like-ing”, poking, tweeting, checking-out and searching. And each of these transactions generates a trail, an entry in a database somewhere.
This popular shift to digital media is fuelling an exponential growth in data creation. Analysing large data sets – “big data” – is tipped to become a key source of competition, stimulating new waves of productivity growth, innovation, and consumer surplus.
The opportunity in online is to leverage this data or rather, the insights from the data, to drive improvements in the way in which business engages with customers. The problem is, who is going to analyse this data?
A recent study by the McKinsey Institute suggests a gap of as many as 1.7 million data-savvy managers and analytics practitioners in the US alone. Using real-world business problems as examples, this presentation will make the case for statisticians and data analysts to look more closely at the internet industry for research, commercial and professional opportunities

In this presentation, delivered at the eMetrics Marketing Optimisation Summit San Francisco 2011, Jennifer Veesenmeyer, a leading analytics consultant, look at best practices, worst examples, leading indicators and the agony of being lulled into a sense of complacency. Her conclusion: Your dashboards can be business changing and action inducing.
What’s on your dashboard? Are the Key Performance Indicators you chose three years ago still telling you what you need to know? Does having all the dials and gauges shine a steady Green take off the edge of optimization and stopped you from drilling down into the details?
Investors have poured billions into start-ups collecting and crunching data in a way that can be applied to marketing initiatives. The wealth of data available and the speed at which it can be analyzed and meaningfully applied is changing the advertising industry.
Yet, companies who provide that type of technology face a big challenge in educating the industry on how to put that data to work to better their businesses.
