Starting with our acquisition of Logi Analytics last year, we have been strategically focused on expanding our embedded analytics offerings. We see a bright future for this segment of our business and even use these solutions in our own product development. “The acquisition of Dundas strengthens our embedded analytics capabilities, making it even easier for software development teams to plug prebuilt reporting and analytics into their software.”

Verint | August 10, 2022
Verint® , The Customer Engagement Company™, launched a new native integration as part of the Verint Cloud Platform for Zoom Meetings and Zoom Phone interactions with Verint Engagement Data Management (EDM) ‒ a unique, open solution to help build a multi-source data hub for customer interaction and experience data that is recorded or captured from any system, channel or communication mode.
For the fast-growing community of businesses relying on Zoom Phone and Zoom Meetings for their unified communications, this new integration will provide a quick and straightforward way of consolidating recorded Zoom interactions with customer interaction and feedback data from other sources. Verint EDM will store and harmonize this data alongside interaction and experience data from other corporate systems, increasing the efficiency and decreasing the expense of separately transforming and combining from diverse data silos. Verint EDM also gives organizations additional depth and enrichment to understand customer engagement and generates intelligence to manage compliance and more effectively improve business operations.
Ventana Research analysts agree that organizations face challenges making their interaction data useful. According to a recent research note, The Science of Managing Interaction Data, older models have been focused on contact center voice interactions, while today many interactions also incorporate digital channels. While contact centers provide a partial view of customer relationships, a data hub collects context surrounding interactions and customer experience that helps make them more actionable. The report goes on to state that interaction data has the potential to bridge the gap between demand and resources.
“Verint’s native EDM integration with the Zoom platform means that Verint customers can instantly include recorded data into their analysis of customer engagements. “All of that data ultimately contributes to an organization’s approach to total quality by creating a more comprehensive understanding of customer interactions across all engagement channels in order to make more effective business decisions and ensure compliance.”
Verint’s David Singer, vice president, go-to-market strategy
Verint® helps the world’s most iconic brands – including over 85 of the Fortune 100 companies – build enduring customer relationships by connecting work, data and experiences across the enterprise. The Verint Customer Engagement portfolio draws on the latest advancements in AI and analytics, an open cloud architecture, and The Science of Customer Engagement™ to help customers close The Engagement Capacity Gap™.

Aryballe | August 09, 2022
Aryballe, the pioneer in digital olfaction, today announced the launch of its Advanced Analytics toolset. Available exclusively in the cloud, Advanced Analytics is the first product in the global Aryballe SaaS platform, and is designed to support and provide remote access to data acquired using Aryballe NeOse Advance and Amplifier.
Digital olfaction is catching the attention of manufacturers across an abundance of industries - from automotive to perfume and fragrance to consumer-packaged goods. It is increasingly becoming a tool for companies to ensure quality and consistency of their products and differentiate themselves from the competition.
Through the use of tools such as Aryballe’s NeOse Advance with Advanced Analytics, users will gain improved sensor data analysis, which allows them to go beyond standard intensity and discrimination metrics. They will have access to higher-level metrics, such as chemical composition estimation via advanced machine learning, and advanced dataset filtering and outlier detection. Analyte zone selector is also available for customizing the window of sensor responses to analyze, which gives users more flexibility for complex samples.
“It’s clearer than ever before that when it comes to optimizing odor and taste within the food industry, data analytics is power,” said Florian Viton, Vice President, R&D Management Executive at CJ CheilJedang. “Aryballe’s advanced analytics capabilities enable us to analyze digital odor data better, helping us enhance our digital transformation efforts and provide our consumers with the highest quality products.”
Engineered to assist in chemical and olfactory analysis laboratories and product development, Aryballe’s Advanced Analytics solution provides users with a robust digital olfaction technology evaluation. It can be applied to three core scenarios:
Improved assessment of measured samples for database building
Enhanced flexibility for discriminating product samples
Advanced metrics around limit of detection for intensity-based decision making
“At Aryballe we are helping companies realize the power of the senses and introducing them to digital olfaction as a way to improve their manufacturing and quality control processes. “The introduction of Advanced Analytics will empower users to more quickly and better understand the data available to them and therefore apply it to important business decisions.”
Sam Guilaumé, Aryballe CEO
Based in Grenoble, France and founded in 2014, Aryballe combines biochemistry, advanced optics and machine learning to mimic the human sense of smell. The company’s premier product offering, NeOse Advance, uses silicon photonics technology to detect, record and recognize odor data, which powers improved decision making for R&D, quality control, manufacturing and end-user experiences. Aryballe Suite, the company’s cloud-enabled software, enables customers to intuitively access and customize analysis of odors based on their unique needs. With operations in France, South Korea and the USA, Aryballe works with global leaders in automotive, food manufacturing and flavor & fragrances.
