Jump-Start Your Recommendation Engine Project

Jump-Start Your Recommendation Engine Project

Deliver real-time personalized experiences that result in increased revenue.

Customers are increasingly researching products and services through multiple channels such as mobile devices, websites and social media, and are also expressing their likes and dislikes on their online experiences through these various channels. Recommendation engines have become a crucial aspect of an online user’s experience.

Are you providing this to your customers?

Recommendation engines harvest real-time and historical data from customers, such as frequency of visits to a web site, pages they have visited, time spent on specific pages, products clicked on, and on purchases made, in order to find relationships between products and services based on the inherent complementary nature of items. All interactions of customers across multiple channels need to be collected and analyzed to deliver an interactive, engaging, convenient and accessible experience. Recommendation engines are shown to deliver a 3-5% revenue uplift and a 30-70% increase in order value per visitor on average.

Get a cost-effective big data platform that incorporates machine learning and integrates with search engines.

Recommendation engines built on traditional solutions cannot handle the scope and volume of data cost effectively, nor take advantage of new techniques such as machine learning.

The MapR Recommendation Engine Quick Start Solutiion provides the following critical capabilities that your organization requires:

  • A cost-effective big data platform that can store and process large volumes of data from various customer touchpoints such as web, mobile and social, as well as from transactional systems.
  • Machine learning algorithms that can provide real-time targeting of offers and services.
  • Integration with search engines that can provide you with contextual search and personalization.

Jump-start your initiative to build a recommendation engine on Hadoop and realize faster time-to-value.
