Warum Daten der Baustein jedes Geschäftsmodells sein sollten

In an age where customer preferences and needs are paramount, product and customer data is essential. This data is no longer abstract information stored and managed in folders. It is the fuel that drives the modern business world.

Data is a digital representation of information that can be in a variety of formats. It can include text, numbers, graphics, images, video and sound. From product details such as descriptions, dimensions, prices, order information and stock levels, to customer reviews, social media images, emails and phone calls: All provide valuable insights into customer preferences, trends and perceived product quality. They are the foundation of everything that happens in the digital world. Building blocks for insights, analysis and innovation.

This data enables companies to better understand their customers' needs, offer personalised products and services, and increase customer satisfaction (= customer centricity). This means that they are no longer just a by-product of the business process, but a strategic resource that not only provides insights into the past, but also enables future predictions and trends to be derived.

Today, data management must be part of the central operating system of your business. It plays a critical role in business process optimisation and innovation. For example, companies are using the integration of product and customer data to promote customer-centric approaches. This enables them to better understand customer needs, develop personalised offers and increase customer satisfaction. Data is also central to product development and design, enabling companies to create more competitive products.

Increased efficiency in sales and marketing is another benefit of data. By segmenting and personalising customers, companies can make more efficient use of their marketing budgets and achieve better results from their marketing campaigns. Salespeople can use detailed product information and customer data to create customised offers and strengthen customer relationships. Data also helps with inventory management, preventing overstocking and optimising the supply chain.

Ultimately, companies that use this data effectively can gain a significant competitive advantage. They can react more quickly to changes in market demand, develop innovative products and strengthen customer loyalty. Despite these opportunities, challenges such as complex technologies, privacy concerns, data quality and skills shortages must be overcome. Nevertheless, information offers clear pathways to greater efficiency, competitive advantage and innovation. Organisations that embrace these opportunities and overcome these challenges will be well positioned to thrive in the digital age.


The evolution of data into strategic resources has a significant impact on corporate management. Through effective data management, companies gain deep insights into customer preferences and needs, enable personalized offers and increase customer satisfaction.

Data is not only used to analyze the past, but also enables future forecasts and trends, which strengthens innovation. Companies that use data strategically gain a competitive advantage through rapid responses to market demand and innovative product development.

Overcoming these challenges wisely will position companies for success in the digital era. The time has come to view data not just as a by-product, but as a core resource of the business model and to embark on the path to data-driven excellence.
