Questions? We have answers.

What is a CDP and what does it do?
A customer data platform (CDP) is a software solution that centralizes your data across multiple channels and systems to create a single unified customer profile. This integrated database pairs real-time insights from customer interactions with scalable management tools to create more meaningful experiences for your customers.
What is Adobe Real-Time CDP?
Adobe Real-Time CDP is an application service built on top of Adobe Experience Platform that brings together known and unknown customer data to create trusted customer profiles with simplified integration, intelligent segmentation, and real-time activation across the digital customer journey.
What is customer data integration and why is it important?

Consumer data integration is a series of protocols and processes that combine and organize customer data from multiple sources. CDI connects with multiple databases and imports the information into a single silo.

Information gathered in one place is easier to manage, access, and secure. Even more importantly, customer data gathered in one place enhances the organization’s ability to analyze and visualize the data — and do so in minimal time.

CDI is a crucial component of any business strategy that seeks to make decisions based on consumer behavior.

What are the similarities and differences between CDP, CRM and DMPs?

The main difference between a DMP, CDP, and CRM is the primary purpose for which customer data is stored and organized. Between managing existing customers, marketing to potential customers, or integrating that information to create a unified customer profile, each platform uses data in different ways.

A customer data platform (CDP) builds a robust, varied picture of customers by collecting data from a wide array of sources. A CDP combines customer data from your website, customer service interactions, mobile app visits, physical visits to a store, and even a CRM or DMP.

The focus of a customer relationship management (CRM) platform is managing relationships with existing customers and leads. It helps organize data such as purchase history, customer contact information, and any communications that might have happened with that individual.

A data management platform (DMP) pulls user data from third parties to target audiences more efficiently and segment key attributes. It captures user data, anonymizes it, and then exchanges it with other companies for targeted advertising.

Does Adobe Real-Time CDP provide customer data management?
Yes. Adobe Real-Time Customer Data Platform (CDP) is a single system for customer data management across the customer lifecycle — from a prospect that has never engaged with the brand before to a first-time site visitor, return visitor, converted customer, and loyal frequent customer of various products or services across lines of business.
