Prädiktive Analysen von KXEN tragen zur Unterstützung einer smarten Obama-Kampagne bei

KXEN, der führende Anbieter von prädiktiven Analysen für Gewerbekunden, verkündete heute, dass das Analytikteam von Obama for America (OFA) InfiniteInsight® von KXEN im Rahmen seiner prädiktiven Analytikplattform verwendet, das bei der Wahl einen strategischen Vorteil lieferte.

In Bezug auf Veränderungen ging das Kampagnenteam von Obama for America mit gutem Beispiel voraus. Bei der Kampagne wurden Daten und Analysen verwendet, um bessere Entscheidungen zu treffen und die Kampagne so effizient und produktiv wie möglich zu gestalten. „Wir werden jede einzelne Sache bei dieser Kampagne erfassen“, so Jim Messina, Kampagnenmanager von Obama for America.*

Hochgradig gezielte Kampagnen

Das Analytikteam entschied sich für InfiniteInsight® von KXEN als eines der Tools der prädiktiven Analytikplattform für die Prozessmodellierung. Rayid Ghani, Chefwissenschaftler des Analytikteams, leitete die Implementierung des prädiktiven Analytiktools von KXEN.

„Wir hatten nun alle Daten, die wir zur effektiveren und gezielteren Interaktion mit unseren Unterstützern verwenden wollten – von Fundraising bis hin zur Anwerbung von Freiwilligen. Wir wussten, dass digitale Kanäle wie E-Mail, unsere Website und soziale Medien 2012 von entscheidender Bedeutung sein würden, aber wir benötigten die von KXEN bereitgestellte Flexibilität und Schnelligkeit, um die Online-Herausforderung mit enorm großen und sich stets verändernden Datensätzen zu skalieren.“

Durch die flexible und prädiktive Modellierung von KXEN konnten Wähler und Freiwillige im Rahmen der Kampagne mit aktuellen Online- und Offline-Daten gezielt anvisiert werden. Dieser Ansatz ermöglichte OFA, die Kampagne unter Einbeziehung von E-Mail und sozialen Medien wie Facebook und Twitter zu leiten.

Die erfolgreiche Mittelbeschaffung der Kampagne wurde durch prädiktive Modelle zur Verbesserung von Häufigkeit und Zeitpunkt unterstützt, um höhere Spenden zu erzielen. Weitere spezifische Beispiele:

  • Durch prädiktive Modelle optimierte Fundraising-Kampagnen führten zu höheren Spenden.
  • Prädiktive Erkenntnisse entdeckten und verdeutlichten überzeugbare Wählersegmente.
  • Die Aufforderung an Unterstützer, sich mit ihren Facebook-Accounts in die Obama-Kampagne einzuloggen, ermöglichte OFA, Informationen und Bereiche zu personalisieren und Personen zu bewegen, sich als Freiwillige zu melden, sich zu registrieren bzw. die Wahl mit zu gestalten.

„Die zeitgerechten und genauen durch KXEN bereitgestellten Erkenntnisse führten zu einem effektiveren und schnelleren Targeting und letztendlich zu einer größeren Anzahl von Stimmen“, so Ghani.

„Wir sind hoch erfreut, dass wir an der ersten größeren Verwendung von prädiktiven Analysen bei einer bedeutenden Kampagne beteiligt waren. Heute wenden sich intelligente Menschen Daten und Analysen zu, um bessere Entscheidungen zu treffen und effizientere Organisationen zu leiten. Die OFA-Kampagne ist ein hervorragendes Beispiel, wie dies in der Praxis funktioniert“, erklärte John Ball, CEO von KXEN.

Between 2005 and 2020, data volumes will grow by a factor of 300 – enough data to stack CDs from the earth to the moon 162 times. This has come to be known as the ‘big data’ phenomenon. Unfortunately, traditional approaches to handling, storing and analyzing data aren’t adequate at this scale: they’re too costly, slow and physically cumbersome to keep up. Fortunately, in response a new breed of technology has emerged that is cheaper, faster and more scalable. Yet, in meeting these new needs they...
"We're a cybersecurity firm that specializes in engineering security solutions both at the software and hardware level. Security cannot be an after-the-fact afterthought, which is what it's become," stated Richard Blech, Chief Executive Officer at Secure Channels, in this SYS-CON.tv interview at @ThingsExpo, held November 1-3, 2016, at the Santa Clara Convention Center in Santa Clara, CA.
When it comes to cloud computing, the ability to turn massive amounts of compute cores on and off on demand sounds attractive to IT staff, who need to manage peaks and valleys in user activity. With cloud bursting, the majority of the data can stay on premises while tapping into compute from public cloud providers, reducing risk and minimizing need to move large files. In his session at 18th Cloud Expo, Scott Jeschonek, Director of Product Management at Avere Systems, discussed the IT and busin...
According to Forrester Research, every business will become either a digital predator or digital prey by 2020. To avoid demise, organizations must rapidly create new sources of value in their end-to-end customer experiences. True digital predators also must break down information and process silos and extend digital transformation initiatives to empower employees with the digital resources needed to win, serve, and retain customers.
The IoT is changing the way enterprises conduct business. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Eric Hoffman, Vice President at EastBanc Technologies, discussed how businesses can gain an edge over competitors by empowering consumers to take control through IoT. He cited examples such as a Washington, D.C.-based sports club that leveraged IoT and the cloud to develop a comprehensive booking system. He also highlighted how IoT can revitalize and restore outdated business models, making them profitable ...
SaaS companies can greatly expand revenue potential by pushing beyond their own borders. The challenge is how to do this without degrading service quality. In his session at 18th Cloud Expo, Adam Rogers, Managing Director at Anexia, discussed how IaaS providers with a global presence and both virtual and dedicated infrastructure can help companies expand their service footprint with low “go-to-market” costs.

"Once customers get a year into their IoT deployments, they start to realize that they may have been shortsighted in the ways they built out their deployment and the key thing I see a lot of people looking at is - how can I take equipment data, pull it back in an IoT solution and show it in a dashboard," stated Dave McCarthy, Director of Products at Bsquare Corporation, in this SYS-CON.tv interview at @ThingsExpo, held November 1-3, 2016, at the Santa Clara Convention Center in Santa Clara, CA.

Predictive analytics tools monitor, report, and troubleshoot in order to make proactive decisions about the health, performance, and utilization of storage. Most enterprises combine cloud and on-premise storage, resulting in blended environments of physical, virtual, cloud, and other platforms, which justifies more sophisticated storage analytics. In his session at 18th Cloud Expo, Peter McCallum, Vice President of Datacenter Solutions at FalconStor, discussed using predictive analytics to mon...
The Internet of Things will challenge the status quo of how IT and development organizations operate. Or will it? Certainly the fog layer of IoT requires special insights about data ontology, security and transactional integrity. But the developmental challenges are the same: People, Process and Platform and how we integrate our thinking to solve complicated problems. In his session at 19th Cloud Expo, Craig Sproule, CEO of Metavine, demonstrated how to move beyond today's coding paradigm and sh...
Today we can collect lots and lots of performance data. We build beautiful dashboards and even have fancy query languages to access and transform the data. Still performance data is a secret language only a couple of people understand. The more business becomes digital the more stakeholders are interested in this data including how it relates to business. Some of these people have never used a monitoring tool before. They have a question on their mind like “How is my application doing” but no id...

In IT, we sometimes coin terms for things before we know exactly what they are and how they’ll be used. The resulting terms may capture a common set of aspirations and goals – as “cloud” did broadly for on-demand, self-service, and flexible computing. But such a term can also lump together diverse and even competing practices, technologies, and priorities to the point where important distinctions are glossed over and lost.
As data explodes in quantity, importance and from new sources, the need for managing and protecting data residing across physical, virtual, and cloud environments grow with it. Managing data includes protecting it, indexing and classifying it for true, long-term management, compliance and E-Discovery. Commvault can ensure this with a single pane of glass solution – whether in a private cloud, a Service Provider delivered public cloud or a hybrid cloud environment – across the heterogeneous enter...
All clouds are not equal. To succeed in a DevOps context, organizations should plan to develop/deploy apps across a choice of on-premise and public clouds simultaneously depending on the business needs. This is where the concept of the Lean Cloud comes in - resting on the idea that you often need to relocate your app modules over their life cycles for both innovation and operational efficiency in the cloud. In his session at @DevOpsSummit at19th Cloud Expo, Valentin (Val) Bercovici, CTO of Soli...
