MarTech’s CDP experts to follow

The CDP Institute defines a customer data platform as “packaged software that creates a persistent, unified customer database that is accessible to other systems.” That’s a great place to start, but the CDP space is constantly evolving. A number of high-profile CDPs have been acquired by broader digital experience platforms over the past few years; big players like Adobe and Oracle have created their own CDPs; and rather than ingesting data from numerous sources, some CDPs are now offering the option of connecting directly to organizations existing data lakes.

To keep up with developments in this key martech category, here — in alphabetical order — are the CDP thought leaders you need to know.
