With the increasing trend in market competition, the key to success shifts from products to the customers. Customer Relationship Management has become an emerging topic for enterprises which encourages relationship enhancement and focus on strengthening bonds with the customers. Being customer focus, helps an organization to better serve their customers thus leading to increased customer retention. In understanding customers, availability of vast amount of data is an advantage. With the advancement of technology, data is gathered from different places associated with different consumption contexts and therefore, big data has become one of the most vibrant technologies to obtain insights about the consumers. The increasing need for consumer behaviour analysis reforms the use of Big Data. Unique volume, velocity, and variety of primary data available from individual consumers provide behavioural insights about consumers, where marketers could translate those in gaining competitive advantage. But at present, big data analytics interprets the result to exhibit the effect rather than exploiting the cause behind. Consumers on the other hand are complex beings exhibiting results based on hidden constructs leading to different decisions. These hidden drivers are the latent behaviours of consumers and this paper proposes possible ways that technology can be utilized to unearth such hidden constructs.
