New Real-Time CDP Capabilities Power Next-generation Customer Experiences
With Real-Time CDP, Adobe continues to transform how brands engage with their audiences by unlocking new capabilities, including data collection, enrichment and distribution at a market-leading scale. Adobe delivers real-time data with more than 24 trillion audience segment evaluations and over one petabyte of data processed on average per day. Innovations include:
- Instant personalization with Adobe Target: Adobe Target makes it possible to activate customer insights at record speed. The integration of Adobe Real-Time CDP with Adobe Target enables brands to leverage complete customer profiles composed of online and offline data for improved experiences. Customer digital engagement data is collected and tied to a customer profile that is then qualified for an audience segment and delivered as personalized content – all in milliseconds. This allows customer insights to be analyzed and turned into personalized experiences on websites and mobile apps in the blink of an eye.
- Implementing marketing consent and preferences: To deliver personalized customer experiences that build trust, brands need to safely collect, activate and store customer insights and consent data. With OneTrust’s consent management platform integrated with Adobe Experience Platform, brands can build unified profiles that include consent and preference data. Direct integration with OneTrust allows brands to ingest consent data directly into Real-Time CDP, making it easy to implement consumer consent and preferences and glean key insights from consumer preferences to deliver improved, privacy-conscious experiences.
- Real-Time CDP connections: Brands can now streamline data collection, enrichment and distribution with a fast, low-code implementation to drive accelerated time-to-value for real-time personalization based on behavioral events. Real-Time CDP Connections offers real-time performance with Adobe Experience Platform Edge Network’s geographically distributed servers. This enables the fast distribution of data with high fidelity while also allowing brands to send data from Adobe’s servers to Adobe and non-Adobe destinations.
- B2B intelligence: With Adobe Sensei, Adobe’s AI engine, brands can scale their marketing efforts and deliver personalized experiences at scale. Adobe Real-Time CDP B2B Edition supplies businesses with predictive intelligence around a user’s intent to purchase. A new integration with Adobe Marketo Measure provides business-to-business (B2B) companies with unparalleled pipeline and revenue attribution.
- Build rich customer profiles with key data from Adobe Commerce: To help brands further customize shopping experiences, Adobe Commerce links commerce data – such as shoppers’ browsing or purchase history – to Real-Time CDP and other Adobe Experience Cloud applications. This empowers brands to analyze customer behavior, build rich customer profiles and deliver personalized shopping journeys that drive sales, retention and loyalty. The capability is expected to be available in the second half of the year.
