First Insight, a leading provider of solutions that empower brands to incorporate the voice of the customer into the design and merchandising of new products, today announced the launch of InsightTargeting, a solution enabling retailers and brands to create highly targeted products and promotions through predictive analytics.
The pace at which the world creates data will never be this slow again. And much of this new data we’re creating is unstructured, textual data. Emails. Word documents. News articles. Blogs. Reviews.

Its customers. Its weaknesses and its opportunities.
