Data analytics can plug into organizations to revamp their approach to business, signaling areas of efficiency and boosting productivity. The consumer packaged goods space is no different.
For General Mills, responding to changes in consumer demands begins with access to the necessary data. For over a decade it has relied on a partnership with Nielsen to obtain insights into consumer trends, particularly in high-growth markets. In November the company expanded that partnership to include access to Nielsen Connect, a cloud-based data platform.
“We’ve identified a number of applications across the organization where enhanced data and analytics can drive topline growth with enhanced consumer insights that will improve the product offerings we bring to market, personalize our communication with consumers, and unlock future growth,” Roemhildt said.
In 2020, analysts expect companies will add more C-suite roles tied to data. Montemayor is one example of this trend, which responds to the depth of business change data can represent.
