Customer experience: the big picture

Surveys and interviews are just the beginning. A great CX requires massive amounts of data to create a comprehensive view that provides the most detailed—and therefore insightful—view of customers and the best ways to continually improve.

A Net Promoter score is helpful, but we factor in so much more when measuring customer experience. We use multiple enterprisewide CX programs, customer experience communities, advisory boards, and panels to fully understand the customer's perspective.

On the migration day, it took maybe one hour—and we had all our files safe on Google Cloud. NetApp XCP is amazing. No other data mover tool in the market can achieve that. And we tried a bunch of them.
