Enkata Utilizes Big Data Technology to Support Rich Analyses of Customer Experience Data

Addresses Growing Capabilities and Demands for Workforce Optimization and Customer Experience Analytics

REDWOOD CITY, CA--(Marketwire - Jan 19, 2012) - Enkata, the leader in customer experience analytics and workforce optimization solutions in the cloud, today announced the first in a series of applications of big data technology that supports the delivery of Enkata's full suite of solutions for contact centers and back office operations.

With Enkata's unique offering, Enkata customers access and analyze a growing amount of customer and employee transaction data coming from transaction logs, speech recognition, web usage, and agent desktop activity. Enkata's cloud-based, closed-loop performance management solutions correlate structured and unstructured data to uncover failure points and drive actionable steps to improve agent and operational performance.

Organizations are better able to engage the entire business ecosystem, tightly connecting people, including customers, employees, and partners, as participants in even more productive, efficient ways.

"Our unique ability to consolidate, correlate, sequence, analyze, and replay volumes of disparate data in the cloud provides a complete view of the customer journey," said David Stamm, CEO of Enkata. "Why customers made contact, how often, with whom, and to what outcomes? As ecosystems for service delivery include a greater array of participants -- home agents, contractors, third parties, as well as a greater number of touch points from retail to chat, it is critical to use big data technologies in the cloud."

Enkata's big data architecture addresses a new order of requirements for customer experience analytics:

  • Capture and store petabytes of data from 100% of customer, partner, and employee interactions over time
  • Handle a tenfold increase in structured and unstructured data from various enterprise sources:
    • Customer touchpoints (email, chat, phone, web, IVR)
    • Call statistics and recordings
    • Employee desktop transaction data and screen recordings
    • Social media data
    • Retail channels
  • Achieve new levels of response times for information access and analysis

"Our recent research shows that customer and transaction data are the most common types of big data analyzed by organizations," said David Menninger, Vice President and Research Director, Ventana Research. "In addition, within 12 months two thirds plan to use the cloud for some of their big data processing, so it is no surprise that services like Enkata are moving to these architectures for rapid response and scalability."

With the combination of its proprietary analytics, SaaS foundation, and big data technology, Enkata is the only analytics solution that provides touch point data from all participants, accelerating business with information and insights that anticipate and address evolving opportunities.
