BI or DIE – Analysestrategie mit KPIs und CPIs – Im Gespräch mit Philipp von Loringhoven, Team Advertico

Andreas und Philipp von Loringhoven über Marketing Dashboards, Reporting- & Analytics-Strategien und Data Literacy.

Philipp ist ein Designer, Entwickler, Marketeer und Daten-Nerd. Als Freelancer ist er gefangen zwischen Marketing, Produktentwicklung, Business Intelligence und Analytics – er hilft Unternehmen ihre Kunden besser zu verstehen, um mit ihnen zielführender zu kommunizieren.

In dieser Folge beschäftigen wir uns mit guten Marketing-Dashboards und was ein solches ausmacht. Phillip gibt uns Einblicke in  Reporting- & Analytics-Strategien und verrät uns, ob ein gutes data-driven aufgestelltes Marketing überhaupt noch ein Controlling braucht. Was können Controlling-Abteilungen lernen, wenn es um KPIs geht und wie sehen die Zielvorstellungen von kunden- und contentzentrierten KPIs in Dashboards aus? Ob die Datenkompetenz im Marketing besser als in anderen Unternehmensbereichen ist und warum dringend eine Verzahnung von KPIs (Key Performance Indicators) und CPIs (Customer Performance Indicators) stattfinden sollte, diskutieren Andreas und Philipp in dieser Folge.
