How a CDP can deliver the Holy Grail: real-time, cross-channel marketing

The Holy Grail. Originally a title given to the cup used by Christ at the last supper, which has been much sought after but never found, this term has come to represent something extremely difficult – perhaps impossible – to find or get. For many years, marketers around the globe have been attempting to realize their own Holy Grail of ‘real-time, cross-channel marketing’, yet many have failed in this quest. Now, a marketing tool has emerged that promises to make this dream a reality: the Customer Data Platform.

They interact with brands through any channel or device they wish (email, web, social, mobile app, direct mail, call center or in-store), and therefore its a strategic imperative that marketers are able to utilize data from all these channels and execute campaigns in an omnichannel way.

Without the ability to capture and act-on the available data points it creates disjointed and impersonal experiences that can frustrate buyers and damage a potential conversion.
