In August, 2019, in Colombia Robocalls are not that usual yet, however companies are starting to provide information with these types of recordings that are sometimes unwanted calls, also companies might send sales and discounts to your cellphone using texts more than twice a day. Website Pop-ups and chatbots will not let you see the information you need from a website and can also be disturbing if unsolicited.
The truth is we all need to handle information in an efficient manner, so technology is becoming part of our life. Since online marketing is becoming global, all companies can advertise anywhere anytime.
Business intelligence: Companies use business intelligence to organize information and transform it into usable data, data that can help a company make a better decision.
