Answers empowers consumer brands and organizations by connecting them with the information they need to make better-informed decisions.

As a cloud services provider, Answers made strategic purchases of high volume data services such as ForeSee, Webcollage, and ResellerRatings, which helped it become a premier provider of customer life-cycle solutions for enterprises. These life-cycle solutions enable enterprises to gain user insights as they engage with customers at every interaction point. These insights can drive investment decisions as well as deliver content catered to the customer’s experience.

Answers handles an impressive volume of billions of events per month from the above companies, and were looking for a solution that can handle this large volume and consolidate it into a single viewpoint so that it could be shared with businesses in an easy and intuitive way. By using CoolaData, Answers was also able to consolidate various analytics systems into one single system, thus reducing operating costs and maintenance of multiple systems. Legacy data was also something that CoolaData had to incorporate when migrating from these services.

CoolaData’s strength is to aggregate data into one view, which helped Answers achieve a record time-to-insight for all their cloud services. With this consolidated view, Answers was able to give their cloud users better insights and develop a new service that share these gathered insights with them.

The partner portal is a powerful intuitive tool that can:

  • Enable manufacturers to get a complete picture of where their product is placed
  • Give retailers a full analysis of their user behavior
  • Provide powerful product affinity that relies on a deep analysis of users’ choices

Answers gains value out of CoolaData’s platform in:

  • Seamless integration of multiple sources and continuous maintenance of data collection
  • Complete picture of how well cloud services perform in record time
  • One viewer that handles all
  • Insight sharing through a partner portal
  • No maintenance – just data
