Accessible through the BigCommerce Control Panel, Big Open Data Solutions provides merchants with the flexibility and control to use pre-built integrations with Google BigQuery and Twilio Segment to securely transfer their storefront data to a data warehouse or a customer data platform (CDP), respectively.
Merchants will have the opportunity to work directly with these and other BigCommerce partners to set up and connect with solutions across data warehousing, business intelligence, customer data platforms, analytics and personalization, reducing development costs and barriers of entry to get up and running.
“At BigCommerce, we believe our merchants own their data, and should have the flexibility to use the data solutions and tools as they choose to get the results they need.”
“Just as our Open SaaS philosophy enables merchants to choose the partners and integrations that work best for them, this open data approach ensures that merchants aren’t limited to proprietary analytics tools. They can assemble the technology stack that fits their needs.”Jimmy Duvall, Chief Product Officer, BigCommerce.
With Big Open Data Solutions’ native integration to the Google BigQuery data warehouse, merchants can centralize all data into a single location for analytical insights that can connect to popular business intelligence tools such as Google Data Studio to generate customized reporting across their customer, order and product catalog data.
Customer data platforms such as Twilio Segment allow merchants to centralize storefront shopper behavioral data and create a unified customer profile to improve customer experiences.
Unifying data from disparate data sources into a single location gives merchants a more holistic view of store activity to better optimize business operations, create personalized customer experiences and develop targeted marketing and promotion campaigns that further drive revenue growth and profitability.
“From day one, the BigQuery integration has been a game changer for us for data and reporting analysis across testing environments in support of our launch.”
“Being able to look at our actual data to see and analyze how our shoppers perform and behave, then churn out detailed reports in Tableau from a single location is not only efficient for our two-person development team, but extremely cost-effective. Google BigQuery in BigCommerce’s Big Open Data Solutions portfolio has saved us an enormous amount of time and money to get the desired results we need on a daily basis.”John Chan, Inventory Planning and Business Intelligence Analyst, Garrett Wade Company.
