Reasoning in CRM


It gives some measure of the importance we give to AI that I went to two conferences last week and sat through two panel sessions on the subject. At CRM Evolution, I was part of the discussion in a breakfast session. At the Oracle CX show, executives involved in the adaptive intelligent applications product line tried to define the basics. I have to say that neither session was especially illuminating, which is not to cast aspersions on any of the participants but more to provide a gauge of how early we still are in the market cycle.

The number of strategies that will lead to success is limited. Marketers don’t simply echo the successful efforts of other marketers, though — they also parrot things that don’t really work.
