The National Retail Federation’s big annual conference is on, which means we’re seeing baskets of retail-related news. CDP AgilOne has announced a new machine learning framework that simplifies and speeds advanced modeling building. They also have improved reporting for non-technical users and new coupon-creation features.
CDP Optimove has launched a new feature to compare the long-term performance of different communication streams over time. Each test stream can include messages across in multiple channels. No prize for guessing that the product name is Streams.
Also at NRF: retail customer data expert dunnhumby has launched a media business that lets retailers sell advertising on in-store signage, point of sale screens, and similar “owned” channels. It will also manage campaigns in conventional channels. In-store media networks are nothing new but it’s still a good way to leverage dunnhumby’s customer data skills.
