TNS – What Data don’t tell
We live in a connected world: every single action we take, every single move we have, every single chat we make, we deliver information and data to a server. People, companies, institutions are so full of data that they don’t even know where to start from. Moreover, analyzing all this mass of information is not that easy and the so called Big Data are changing the perimeters and the approach we need to have while analyzing data: we were used to analyze a small set of data, with a specific error prediction, with a standardized process… now everything has changed. We need to change too. But the spontaneous digital data don’t tell us everything: they don’t tell the why, they don’t tell how to surprise our consumers, they don’t tell how to engage with silent information, they don’t tell about the potential unexpressed by behaviors. This is why we need to integrate, mix, mash data coming from different perspectives, different sources, different collection methods. With this potpourri of data and methods on hands, we can approach all the areas in which data may support. We will see some cases in the areas of innovation, brand building and reputation, where integration of social data and surveys offers new strategic perspectives and insights, without stereotypes.
