Insights – The Road Less Traveled (in Market Research)

UgamThe paradigm shift in consumer behavior and preferences has made it imperative for businesses to adopt new-age tools and methodologies. The truth is that survey data wasn’t designed for modern systems and, not surprisingly, it poses a lot of challenges for the industry. While this migration to mainstream business intelligence and big data technologies has been acknowledged, the industry at large has been slow to adopt them.

There’s an increasing demand to upgrade technologies to what’s on par with other industries. While this adoption poses a lot of challenges, it’s not impossible to integrate survey data with new-age data exploration and visualization solutions. And what’s more, this change will empower researchers and business users to own and be the masters of their data and insights.

Ugam will showcase the strategies employed by insight agencies to efficiently deliver deeper insights, faster.
