Analytics Centre Stage at Royal Shakespeare Company

 

The Royal Shakespeare Company (RSC) is helping boost audiences at productions with analytics software from KXEN.

 

The software was used to identify specific audience segments and patterns of attendance behavior, helping the RSC design targeted marketing programs.

 

The initiative, an Accenture-led program to segment audiences, saw a 50 percent rise in ticket buyers at RSC's Stratford-upon-Avon theatre, a more than 70 percent increase in regular attendees and significantly earlier sell-outs for London bookings.

 

"KXEN software is unique in its ability to readily handle large numbers of variables and this enabled us to easily fine-tune the segmentation process," says Mary Butlin, the RSC'S head of market planning. "The beauty of KXEN is that the segmentation falls out of the data naturally. It is far more insightful than us taking a guess at what might work. Now we know what will work and we can plan campaigns with real confidence."

RealTime Services Deploys DataCore’s SANmelody

RealTime Services, a service and support company for small staffing firms, deployed DataCore Software’s SANmelody for its online transaction processing application that supports payroll services for clients.

SANmelody supports the company’s Microsoft cluster environment, which includes SQL database and Exchange email servers.

“In a batch environment the traditional storage array approach probably would have been fine,” said Jeff Sabotin, IT director, RealTime Services. “However, this application supports our growing client base and increased online usage. The storage array was slowing down our database quite severely.”
