What is a Customer Data Platform and why it is important?

The customer data platform, or CDP for short, is turning out to be progressively significant in organizations. This isn’t unexpected: For years, particularly advertising administrators have been looking for the much-referred to 360-degree perspective on their clients to no end. With a customer data platform, this expression can at last become reality.

Today, the marketer’s reality is very perplexing, and client assumptions are high. Dedication goes to the organizations that can react to “client critical points in time” with unique, personalized communications in real-time that transcend traditional marketing, spanning channels and devices. Fighting this scattered information and following up on it rapidly is turning out to be a lot harder.

The rapid acceleration of digital and e-commerce growth is intensifying the existing data problem. It is also propelling companies to adapt their customer engagement mechanisms to a new hybrid physical/digital environment. In a study on the future of the customer experience, Futurum Research found that 66% of companies are accelerating online tracking for behavior and habits. And 73% agree that the new engagement models will require real-time data collection and analysis. It’s no wonder that CDPs are garnering so much attention.

The basic CDP has four primary capabilities:

Data ingestion. CDPs pull in first-party client information from different sources (e.g., conditional frameworks, web conduct, call focus, socioeconomics, or POS).

Identity management. CDPs settle the personalities of clients across various channels. Most utilize deterministic coordinating and profile sewing with identifiers given by the inbound information. The CDP creates and maintains a persistent customer identifier.

Segmentation. CDPs allow marketers to build and maintain universal, omnichannel audience segmentation with the unified data in the CDP.

Data provision/activation. CDPs facilitate the activation of the insights and unified customer profiles generated in the CDP. This is done by providing connectors and APIs to other marketing technologies.

CDP For Growing Business

This is precisely why CDPs will become increasingly important to emerging, digitally savvy companies. Not only to get a 360-degree view of the customer but also to interact with customers through the channels of their choice. Each customer data platform will look different for every company because every organization has a different focus, communicates via different channels, or has different customer structures. Therefore, CDPs must guarantee a high degree of scalability.

But one thing is certain: CDPs make it possible to piece together customers’ intentions based on the vast amount of information available from a wide variety of sources. To trade the unprecedented amount of this information, companies need more power than ever before. Right now, a CDP offers the most comprehensive capabilities to sift through all this data, find relevant customer journeys, and act accordingly.
