first_imgFor most marketers, getting a handle on data analytics is an obvious need.  Recent studies say that greater than 70% of marketers see the need.  The challenge is, they have never done it. And given the reality that “no one wants to fail,” many don’t begin. Others find themselves asking, when will I have the time to do this along the 273 other tasks and obligations already on my “to-do” list.Data isn’t going anywhere.  And most everyone knows that the need for analytics is rising to meet the availability of this data.So, where do you start?  My hope is that the following roadmap offers you some guidance.If you have never employed data analytics in marketing, you need first to understand what the software tools that help collect and analyze your account data, do and why.  Often, this analytics software is called an MCIF system.  The term, “MCIF” is an acronym for Marketing Central Information File.  Essentially, it is a database that pulls in data from all of your internal loan and deposit systems.  As you may know, you have many internal databases that manage the transactions unique to your specific loans and deposits.  This means that data is held in multiple, independent silos.  None of it has been combined to offer a full view of a client relationship.  This is the first thing an MCIF does.Want to learn more?  Would you invest 30 minutes to maybe an hour?  Most of your peers won’t.  If you want to rise above your competitors and elevate your personal value to your credit union (or the next credit union which will value your knowledge more), then invest the time.  I promise to make it easy and fun.I have pulled together e-books, fun videos and white papers that illuminate the value of data and analytics.  Access this wealth of knowledge in one place, here.Once you have a basic idea of what data analytics means and why you may want to employ it, seek out folks you know, and ask them about their experiences.  How are they addressing this growing need for data analytics?  Your credit union associations offer plenty of vendor resources on-line.  Also, look for articles in the trade press that help illuminate the benefits and pitfalls further.  Talk to vendors.  They will share more than you can imagine.  Each vendor wants you to become educated on what is possible, how to do it and how their solution will help you accomplish your goals.  You need to understand all of this to get what you want.Data isn’t going anywhere.  And most everyone knows that the requirement for analytics is rising to meet the availability of this data.  As you may know, the C-Suite across credit union land is growingly interested in the information, action and certain results that data analytics delivers.So, where do you start?  If you avail yourself of the data analytics resources in this article, your journey has already begun.  Congratulations, you just got started with Data Analytics!Check out the resource page now.  You will even be able to access case studies and personal copies of one or more of my books. 39SHARESShareShareSharePrintMailGooglePinterestDiggRedditStumbleuponDeliciousBufferTumblr,Jay Kassing Jay Kassing is President of MARQUIS, a Texas based provider of marketing analytics solutions including MCIF/CRM software, MCIF services, profitability, compliance, consulting and direct mail creative/fulfillment.

first_img– No place for Trayon BobbFOUR years after he made his debut for Guyana in a 2 – 0 win over Grenada, Matthew Briggs will return for the Golden Jaguars after being named in Coach Michael Johnson’s 23-man squad for the June 14 – July 7 CONCACAF Gold Cup. Briggs, 28, was kept out of the National side due to eligibility issues, but now, the former Fulham FC, Watford and Colchester defender is set to play a major role in Guyana’s Gold Cup campaign.Former Ajax youth player Terell Ondaan (winger), along with Jordan Dover (defender), Liam Gordon (defender) and goalkeeper Quillan Roberts are the debutants in the side, while Western Tigers’ Pernell Schultz and Daniel Wilson, Guyana Defence Force’s (GDF) Kevin Layne and goalkeepers, Alex Murray and Akel Clarke, are the only locally-based players in the squad. Sheldon Holder, who plays professionally in Trinidad and Tobago with Caledonia AIA, also got the nod.Matthew BriggsHowever, probably in the biggest surprise, there was no place for Trayon Bobb, but, looking at the team’s composition, it would’ve been difficult for the winger to play ahead of former Arsenal player, Anthony Jeffery and Reading FC’s Callum Harriot. Ondaan, a product of Ajax’s academy, also plays in the same position as Bobb on the wing. “The Technical Staff is very confident and excited about the composition of the squad arrived at for the continuation of this historic journey. As you would appreciate, the selection process was not easy by any means and we do appreciate there will be disappointment amongst some players,” Johnson said.Commenting further on the team’s selection, Johnson noted that “we would like to encourage players, fans, well-wishers and the media to get behind your Golden Jaguars, as we all aim to prove to the people of Guyana, at home and in the Diaspora, that we belong. Wherever you are in the world, the staff and players are asking you to get behind the team and enjoy this historical moment. Your country needs you!”Assistant Coach, Charles ‘Lily’ Pollard, a former Golden Jaguar player, also commented on the final squad, pointing out that “It’s an exciting time for the Golden Jaguars and we are energized to show that we can compete at the highest level in Concacaf. It’s going to be very tough, but we are looking forward to the challenge.”The Golden Jaguars have been drawn in Group D of the 16-team tournament with the host nation USA, along with Panama and Trinidad and Tobago.Following the opening match against the USA on June 18, Guyana will travel to Cleveland, Ohio where they will take on Panama on June 22 at the First Energy Stadium and then it’s on to the final group match against Caribbean Football Union rivals, neighbouring Trinidad and Tobago on June 26 at the Children’s Mercy Park in Kansas.Golden Jaguars team: Matthew Briggs, Terell Ondaan, Jordan Dover, Liam Gordon, Quillan Roberts, Sam Cox, Neil Danns, , Emery Welshman, Keanu Marsh-Brown, Ronayne Marsh-Brown, Callum Harriott, Anthony Jeffery, Pernell Shultz, Warren Creavalle, Elliot Bonds, Terrence Vancooten, Kevin Layne, Stephen Duke-McKenna, Sheldon Holder, Daniel Wilson, Akel Clarke and Alex Murray.last_img read more

Provincials being hosted January 17-19.  Drop by to watch as the runner-up in last year’s provincials, Tom Shypitka, defends his berth (Nelson’s, Fred Thomson is third on this team). Teams who are challenging Shypitka for the opportunity to represent the Kootenays are, Fahselt, McHargue and Bothamley from the East Kootenays and Nichol, Salviulo and Ferguson from the West. These teams promise to provide us with entertaining games and the public is invited to come and watch.Standings for the first half of the curling season are:Tuesday Mens:Beaudry (14); Meadows (11); Savliulo (11); May, R.

first_imgCompetitions Director at the Inter-Secondary Schools Sports Association (ISSA) George Forbes notes that the organisation does not have a position on student-athletes bleaching their skin and insists that it is the schools who have to address the issue. “We cannot tell a student he cannot represent his school because of bleaching. The schools have to set that in their guidelines, so if they bleach, they can’t represent the school. We at ISSA can’t say we are not allowing someone to play because they are bleaching. We can’t do that. Individual schools have to take responsibility,” he said. Forbes said although he personally does not like the act, the association has not received any complaints from sponsors or the public with regard to it having a negative impact. “It all depends because everything in life is image. Some people see this bleaching phenomenon as OK, while others see it as horrendous. ISSA don’t have a problem with it, but we don’t endorse it. We are limited in what we can do. We just invite schools to participate in ISSA sports. “I don’t think we are going to reach the stage where we un-invite a school because they have students who bleach. It’s a societal problem that the schools will have to monitor for themselves,” he added. “Some schools allow star players to bleach with no attempt to stop them, while some schools will not allow anybody to represent the school while bleaching, so it’s individual,” Forbes said.last_img read more

Betis took advantage of a great performance by goalkeeper Antonio Adan and a bad night by Madrid’s forwards, including Cristiano Ronaldo, who was making his league debut after serving a five-game suspension for shoving a referee in the Spanish Super Cup final last month.“It was bad luck after all the chances that we created,” Madrid midfielder Casemiro said.Ronaldo had played only three other matches with Madrid this season, including against APOEL in the team’s Champions League debut, when he scored twice.“This is not the start we wanted after three games at home,” Zidane said. “We didn’t expect this.”Key winAtletico Madrid moved closer to the lead by earning a hard-fought 2-1 away victory against Athletic Bilbao.Atletico goalkeeper Jan Oblak stopped Aritz Aduriz’s penalty kick before halftime and Angel Correa and Yannick Carrasco scored second-half goals to leave the Madrid side within four points of leader Barcelona.It was the second consecutive win for Atletico, which remains unbeaten after five rounds.“To win in this stadium you need to play a great match and I think we did that,” Atletico coach Diego Simeone said. “We controlled the game and were very effective. It’s a very important triumph for us.”Correa opened the scoring from inside the area after a cross by Jorge “Koke” Resurreccion in the 55th minute, and Carrasco added to the lead with a low shot into the far corner after a well-placed pass by Antoine Griezmann in the 73rd. Griezmann had also helped set up the first goal with a pass to Koke. Paraguayan striker Antoino Sanabria scored the winner with a header from close range to give Betis its first win against Madrid at the Bernabeu since 1998.The result ended Madrid’s streak of 73 consecutive games scoring at least one goal, keeping it from surpassing the record scoring run established by Brazilian club Santos starring Pele in 1963.FEATURED STORIESSPORTSWATCH: Drones light up sky in final leg of SEA Games torch runSPORTSSEA Games: Philippines picks up 1st win in men’s water poloSPORTSMalditas save PH from shutoutMadrid, which was coming off home draws against Valencia and Levante, is seven points behind Barcelona after five games.
