Solution architecture: Predictive marketing campaigns with machine learning and Spark
Marketing campaigns are about more than the message being delivered; when and how that message is delivered is just as important. Without a data-driven, analytical approach, campaigns can easily miss opportunities or struggle to gain traction.
Through machine learning informed by historical campaign data, this solution architecture helps predict customer responses and recommends an optimised plan for connecting with your leads—including the best channel to use (by email, SMS, a cold call, etc.), the best day of the week, and the best time of the day.
Optimising your campaigns with predictive marketing helps improve both sales leads and revenue generation and can provide strong ROI for your marketing investment.
This architecture enables efficient handling of big data on Spark with Microsoft R Server.
