Another impressive point is content personalization capabilities. These traditionally have limited data integration capabilities although both Qlik and Tableau have recently purchased database building products (Podium Data and Empirical Systems, respectively), suggesting a mini-trend of its own. Those differences won’t necessarily show up on paper, where both types of systems will check the boxes on most capabilities lists. It’s likely that CX Unity will be bought mostly by current Oracle CX customers, although Oracle would doubtless be happy to sell it elsewhere. This capability seems to be what Oracle has in mind when it contrasts CX Unity with other customer data management solutions that it calls merely “database centric”. By contrast, CDPs work with structured, semi-structured and unstructured data which requires a NoSQL file system like Hadoop. That the buyer was Salesforce was even more intriguing, given that they had purchased Mulesoft in March for $6.5 billion and that Marketing Cloud CEO Bob Stutz (who announced the Datorama deal) had called CDPs “a passing fad” and said Salesforce already had “all the pieces of a CDP” in an interview in June. Salesforce had purchased Datorama crossed the wire just as I was starting on two weeks of travel, so I haven’t been able to comment until now.
Many people are starting to ask whether they’re really the same thing or could at least be used for some of the same purposes. They’re often Cloud-based. The majority of SaaS tools are Cloud-based, which comes with a number of benefits. But this Constant Contact announcement underscores one the major points I had in mind: that the low number of current marketing automation installations in this field doesn’t mean it’s a wide open market. But it does mean that more engagement-oriented firms are identifying themselves as CDPs and adding CDP features as needed to support their positioning. Potential customers range from large enterprises and public sector to SMBs.- A keystone ecosystem strategy should be applied to allow successful positioning and manage challenges.PRACTICAL IMPLICATIONS OF FINDINGSThe report highlights the need for Telenor management to clearly integrate cloud computing services in the corporate strategy and to adapt the organization to fit the corresponding requirements.

This was purchase was noteworthy as the first big CDP acquisition by a marketing cloud vendor. One CDP vendor recently told me the main distinction they saw was that MDM takes a very rigid approach to identity data, creating a master ID that all connected systems are required to use as the primary customer ID. This is a sharp contrast with the CDP alternatives from Oracle’s main marketing cloud competitors: Customer 360 from Salesforce (no persistent database) and Open Data Initiative from Adobe, Microsoft and SAP (more of a standard than a packaged system). Marketing departments are the main CDP buyers and users while MDM is clearly owned by IT.
But even if CX Unity sales are limited, its feature list offers a template for buyers to measure other systems against. That will create a broader understanding of what belong in a customer management system and make it more likely that buyers will get a CDP that truly meet their needs. But it does mean that the vendors may be able to meet CDP data requirements, even if you need more than their MDM module to do it. Big data helps you in analyzing the unorganized data, and thereby we can have a blueprint of market trends and customer habits, which helps in producing the goods and services to meet exact customer requirements in a short span of time time, and it ultimately leads to reaching the goals of the organization and increased returns on investments.
