Data
 

Join MRS for a morning of case studies demonstrating the application of advanced analytics for improved modelling and segmentations, customer journey mapping, brand purpose analysis, media planning, automated benchmark analysis and chatbot based insight generation.

Tune in to an afternoon of practical, hands-on activities in accessing, manipulating, and visualising data.

  • Explore applications of advanced analytics that are improving research outputs
  • Add new data sources and no-code data science tools to your analytics toolkit
  • Develop your skills in analysing and visualising your data in Power BI 

Please note:

A second screen will be necessary for the afternoon workshop. For best user experience, we recommend a second monitor or laptop. However the conference can be run over a phone or tablet.

To fully participate in the afternoon workshop, Power BI (https://powerbi.microsoft.com/en-us/) and KNIME (https://www.knime.com/) should be downloaded onto delegate laptops or computers prior to the conference (If you are installing KNIME in Windows, installing via an installer is suggested but if in doubt, please consult your company's IT dept). This session can be observed if company restrictions do not allow you to install.

Karsten Shaw, Director Of Analytics, Yonder Consulting

 

09.40 Advanced analytics to predict future financial distress

The estimation of current and future financial distress is a highly important and complex topic, especially since the upheaval caused by the Coronavirus pandemic. Hear about two pieces of advanced analytics undertaken by MaPS and how they are helping to identify where financial distress is most likely to arise. Firstly, an iterative segmentation approach used to understand and classify cohorts of people into appropriate levels and complexities of financial distress. Secondly, the creation of a sophisticated micro-model of the UK adult working population.

Russell Bradshaw, Senior Statistician, MaPS

 

10.10 Pattern recognition: detangling customer's path to purchase

Consumers purchase journeys involve a labyrinth of touchpoints, triggers, and loops. With consumers moving from awareness to purchase quicker than ever, our need to identify where each consumer is most susceptible to nudges and how to efficiently move them towards a purchase is critical.

The following case study highlights how a simple and intuitive set of survey questions, combined with sophisticated pattern recognition modelling can unlock critical journey insights. By uncovering naturally occurring customer journeys segments, based on the infinite number of potential sequences, we can pinpoint which offer the most economic value and which are most capturable by a brand.

10.40 Using advances in text analytics to bring brand purpose to life

Brand purpose matters. We know that brands with a strong purpose grow value faster. So, how can we leverage advances in text analytics, using conversational data collected through personal, engaging bot interactions, to explore different ways in which a brand can manifest its purpose? 

Hear how text analytics can uncover meaningful trends and insights related to brand purpose. Examine how it can ensure brand purpose fits with the brand’s existing positioning and how to communicate authentically so it resonates with its consumers.

11.10 Morning break

 

11.30 A new KPI For media effectiveness - Reality Performance Score (RPS)

In order to plan media better, there has always been the need for one KPI that represents all media together. Historically media and ROI measurements have been limited to linking media expenditures to brand and sales KPI’s. The new RPS KPI has more predictive power than expenditures and takes into account the strength of each medium, the decay effect and the strength of the creative execution.

Using user case studies, DVJ Insights will illustrate how this new KPI for media effectiveness is changing the narrative of media planning.

Bethan Palmer, Client Consultant, DVJ Insights

 

12.00 The empathetic chat-bot: improved generation and analysis of audience qualitative text data

The empathetic chatbot empowers its questioning path/algorithms with AI-enabled real-time emotional, psychometric, and psycholinguistic understanding of the interviewee and their responses, thereby enabling a more engaging experience. This results in step-change improvements in the quantity and the quality (trustworthy and insight-rich) of market research data and insights obtained.

Hear how an ‘always-on’ empathetic chat-bot can deliver scalable, low cost insights in diverse domains such as FMCG and digitalised mental health management in the UK and US armed forces.

Andy Crouch, Business Development Director, Pansensic

 

12.30 Augmented surveying: enriching survey open-ends with online reviews

Contextualising customer feedback by comparing it to the market is fundamental for true customer understanding. One of the most readily available sources for comparing yourself to competitors are online reviews. The challenge then lies in efficiently gathering these different data sources, analysing the unstructured data and presenting the unearthed insights in reports & dashboards.

This case study will show the practical steps involved in setting up a semi-automated, continuous feedback analysis pipeline for app reviews and how to combine the results with NPS data. Caplena will share some specific insights its client discovered through this method.

Maurice Gozenbach, Co-Founder & Machine Learning Engineer, Caplena

 

13.00 Lunch

 

14.00 – 16.20 (including a 20 minute rest break)

Exploring new, accessible datasets and democratising their insights through data visualisation
