Small big data is consumer information held by a company, which can be leveraged with analysis, as in this Quirk’s article: Using Self Organizing Maps to Segment Small Big Data.
If each segment is fairly homogeneous in its needs and attitudes, it is likely to respond similarly to a given marketing strategy.
The purpose for segmenting a market is to allow your marketing/sales program to focus on the subset of prospects that are “most likely” to purchase your offering. If done properly this will help to ensure the highest return for your marketing/sales expenditures.
