Unleashing the Power of Generative AI

A Data-Centric Approach for Success

In the dynamic landscape of technological advancements, the AI revolution is, at its core, a data revolution. As the momentum of AI continues to surge forward, it’s increasingly evident that the success of any AI initiative hinges on one crucial factor – data.

According to recent research, a staggering 87% of analytics and IT leaders emphasize the paramount importance of data management in the face of rapid AI advancements.

AI + Trust

However, here’s the catch: only 57% of data and analytics leaders express complete confidence in the quality, accuracy, and completeness of their data. This is a pivotal point, especially as we delve into the realm of generative AI, which promises to reshape customer relationship management. For generative AI to thrive, it demands data that is not just accurate but also updated, accessible, and comprehensive – a concept we term as data-centric AI.

Taking Action Now

Carl Brundage, a certified technical architect specializing in data and analytics said: “You might have data available, but is it current, authoritative, and complete? If not, you might not have a complete picture of your customer.” Having a comprehensive understanding – the what, when, why, and how of customer interactions – is the key to infusing valuable context into AI.

While groundbreaking AI tools are still in development, there are immediate steps your business can take to fortify its data foundation:

  1. Ensure Data Quality: Remove duplicates, outliers, errors, and other impediments that could compromise decision-making processes.
  2. Connect Data Sources: Unify marketing, sales, service, and commerce data into a single, real-time record to empower AI in making optimal recommendations.
  3. Harmonize Data: Siloed data is the nemesis of extracting value. Harmonize disparate data sources to establish a single source of truth, addressing concerns raised by business leaders.

Cleaning the Data: A Crucial First Step

Tableau’s data experts provide actionable steps to clean your data, a pivotal process in unifying datasets for AI projects:

  • Remove duplicate or irrelevant observations to enhance efficiency and accuracy.
  • Fix structural errors, ensuring consistency in entries for accurate analysis.
  • Filter unwanted outliers, recognizing the balance between data integrity and valid anomalies.
  • Handle missing data by employing strategies such as elimination, input based on other observations, or altering data usage.

Validation Matters

After the data cleaning process, validation becomes paramount. Ask yourself:

  • Does the data make sense?
  • Does it adhere to appropriate rules?
  • Does it validate or challenge theories, surfacing valuable insights?
  • Are there trends that inform future theories, or do data quality issues persist?

Data-Centric AI + CRM: A Winning Combo

AI is already transforming Customer Relationship Management (CRM), and the synergy between data-centric AI and CRM is a game-changer. The integration of real-time, accurate data through a unified customer profile enables businesses to identify trends, anticipate challenges, and seize opportunities across all operations.

A Unified Customer Profile, powered by Data Cloud, offers a comprehensive view of users, facilitating informed decisions. Carl Brundage emphasizes the need for a “trusted unified customer profile, in one place and updated in real time,” highlighting the dynamic nature of customer behavior.

Knowledge is Power

In the hierarchy of knowledge management, data forms the foundation, progressing to information, knowledge, and ultimately wisdom. Data and information, in isolation, lack context or answers to the ‘why.’ However, when integrated with real-time data and AI, patterns emerge, trends are predicted, and seemingly unrelated elements connect.

“Knowledge is knowing that a tomato is a fruit. Wisdom is knowing it does not go into a fruit salad,” aptly summarizes the transformative power of combining data-centric AI and CRM.
