How was the idea of creating the platform born?
We found that the digital marketing space was not really being tapped effectually. Technology and analytics are the non-negotiable pillars of a veritable digital firm that power content and creativity. However, most of the companies operate on the creative angle alone, lacking in technology and analytics. That’s our opportunity. The digital world is ever-growing and ever-changing, where people expect information at the click of a button. Amura was set up with the intent to help brands cope with this dynamic nature of work and make the ‘big bad digital world’ a little easier for them to comprehend.
What are some of the benefits of using AI and Big Data in the industries?
The combination of data, analytics and now AI, is pumping up the socio-economic growth across sectors. Advanced algorithms, AI and machine learning allow organisations to explain incredible value from data that was previously inaccessible. Businesses are still in the initial stages of tapping into the massive potential of these collective technologies, but now is the time to accelerate.
Real estate companies are using big data to figure out how people are conducting their property searches, what kind of tools or features are they using more, and what type of properties and areas are in demand. The main basis of big data is online search data from Google, open-data and crowd-sourcing. Even users have access to free information which they are using to find the appropriate price of the property, better areas etc. Artificial Intelligence is emerging as an effective and influential tool to bridge the gap in consumer’s perception and expectation and streamlining many other aspects of real estate such as searching the property, site visits, time taken for making a decision, buyer behaviour etc.
AI has a lot of advantages over traditional analytics and clinical decision-making practices. Big Data and AI are helping companies in exploring, targeting and identifying the areas that require focus. They help in improving administrative tasks and the way lecturers run the classrooms. It will save billions in administrative costs for institutions, reducing overhead costs and paving the way for a smaller staff to operate successfully.
What are some of the latest trends in automation marketing?

Some of trends are integrated behaviour-based email workflows, automated social media outreach, personalised content recommendations, and predictive lead scoring.
Why is customer relationship management (CRM) software market becoming so popular now?
Before the introduction of technology and software to assist with this, CRM existed in the form of spreadsheets and other fundamental marketing technology options. Companies have now started to explore CRM which helps in streamlining and making the processes efficient. This ultimately results in significant savings, increased revenue. It develops relationships and communications with customers.
