Delivering a predictive experience: Big data can help companies anticipate what consumers want, simplify customer service interactions, and learn from those interactions so that future experiences are constantly improving. Reduce cost to serve: To avoid rapidly rising costs due to increased personal interaction with the customer, a lot of experiences and processes can be handled via self-service channels. Improve user experience through personalisation: e.g. Amazon relies on wish lists, browsing histories, and purchasing history to create individualized product suggestions.
