Editor's note

Businesses are turning increasingly to advanced analytics that incorporates AI, machine learning and more to manage the barrage of customer data flowing into company coffers from multiple channels. They use a number of sophisticated technologies to collect data, including marketing automation tools, CRM platforms, data management platforms and cookies. And, once collected, this data needs to be analyzed and put into action to improve customer experiences.

One of the more important and newer customer data management tools is the customer data platform. A CDP provides the golden ticket -- a single, unified view of the customer.
