NICE to Expand Enterprises’ Capability to Take Advantage of Big Data Created by Customer Interactions

October 18, 2012

RA’ANANA, Israel, October 18, 2012 /PRNewswire/ –

NICE Systems (NASDAQ: NICE) announced today its integrated big data solution that will
enable organizations to improve the customer experience by enhancing their analytics-based
customer service applications. This solution helps companies leverage, in real time, big
data gathered from customer interactions that take place across multiple communication
channels, such as voice, e-mail, chat and web, to maximize the business value of each
interaction. Data volumes are growing exponentially amid an unprecedented change in
computing driven by cloud, social and mobile technologies. The integrated solution
addresses this, providing organizations with a comprehensive view of the entire customer
experience as well as the ability to impact the interaction in real time.

NICE’s solution incorporates IBM’s big data analytics software, including InfoSphere
BigInsights, which supports the collection, integration, and transformation of large
volumes of data, with data structures ranging from simple to highly complex. InfoSphere
BigInsights uses Hadoop technology, which stores the data on a distributed file system
(HDFS), utilizing commodity servers that provide linearly scalable and reliable storage at
a lower cost. Leveraging the latest big data software from IBM allows NICE’s customers to
conduct complex and varied analysis on much larger datasets than previously possible,
while simultaneously reining in IT spend. On top of the data, Hadoop technology enables
enterprises to identify and pull out relevant information from large data sets, providing
the processing scalability that is needed for big data analysis and addressing the most
challenging data volumes.

“Businesses in all industries are looking for new ways to get started with big data,”
said Robert Thomas, IBM vice president of big data alliances. “The combination of NICE and
IBM software provides clients with a comprehensive view of customer data and interactions,
which is essential to achieving key business objectives, such as enhancing customer
experience and improving operational efficiency.”

“Big data is often seen as a challenge, instead of an opportunity,” said Yochai
Rozenblat, President of the Enterprise Group at NICE. “We seek to empower businesses to
use technology to address the vast amounts of data they collect to better understand the
customer, their operations, and identify market trends – ultimately turning that wealth of
information into an important asset.”

NICE’s Customer Interaction Management Offering enables organizations to impact the
full lifecycle of every customer interaction by being well-prepared for each interaction,
shaping the interaction in real time as it happens, and driving improvement across the
enterprise for the next interaction. Driven by real-time, cross-channel analytics and
Voice of the Customer insights, it offers targeted solutions for enhancing the customer
experience, streamlining operational efficiency across the enterprise, improving employee
performance, increasing service-to-sales revenue, and complying with policies and
regulations. NICE Customer Interaction Management solutions, including on-premise and
SaaS, are implemented by contact centers of all sizes, branches, retail stores, trading
floors, and back office operations.
