Leveraging Data to Improve UI/UX and Revolutionize Products bigdata

Big Data can be used to creatively segment your user base, but you must look for stories in the data and how it clusters to uncover the “why” behind user behavior. Quantitative data analysis cannot perfectly reveal the qualitative experience of the user, and it is misguided to drive change uniformly across all demographics given the variety of subjective user experiences. This session will show you how to leverage data leading to ah-ha! moments that reveal user sentiments.
