You might have heard of the famous brand 'Coca-Cola'.

Do you know that data is changing the way Coca-Cola approaches its marketing strategies?

Yes. It has leveraged data to its advantage in decision-making and conducting experiments.

For example, it uses data gathered from consumer feedback to come up with new products.


Coca-Cola has internally connected vending machines all across the world. These machines allow customers to create their own drinks.

Through this, they can see some real trends and patterns, especially by countries and regions, which are then aggregated over time.

These findings are then used to come up with completely new product ideas, like 'cherry-flavoured Sprite' or 'Exotic mango-flavoured diet coke'.

It sounds fascinating, right?
