CSA18 Linking Customer Feedback to Analytics and Work Items at Scale with Automation

[Case Study] Linking Customer Feedback to Analytics and Work Items at Scale with Automation

Catherine Lyman will show you how the team at MapR Data Technologies expanded a simple feedback system into an automated process, saving the writers and the manager time and much pain. By adding integration tools to a ‘human’ process, the MapR team radically reduced the effort required to manage feedback that they get from their users and got an easy way to generate customer analytics in the process.
