The Salesforce team is on a mission to make businesses better, smarter, and more collaborative. They have been pulling together interactions with different departments in order to generate actionable insights and consolidate workflows. Now, we will learn about one their newest features: Let’s start with Marketing Cloud where Customer Data Platform + Intelligence together are going to help you get the most out of your marketing strategies.
The guesswork is out of the way, and now you can focus on what really matters: truly engaging with your audience.
Do you know according to a survey 67% of marketers are not satisfied with their ability to create more relevant experiences with customer data but why worry when Customer Data Platform + Intelligence (formerly Salesforce CDP & Datorama) are here to your rescue.
New for Customer Data Platform (formerly Salesforce CDP)
Using Customer Data Platforms, marketers can create a single source of truth for all their customers. With CDP, every aspect of an individual (demographics, engagement) can be aggregated across multiple platforms.
New CDP innovations announced recently:
Streaming Insights & Data Actions: Delivers insights into ongoing events which helps in analyzing near real-time data signals, like the arrival of a new customer or a recent purchase, or a payment issue, and uses them to activate workflow events accordingly.
Advanced Identity Resolution: Utilize AI to identify customers by matching and merging disparate data. If a field is duplicated (like address, phone, or email) or a name has more than one spelling/nickname, It can be merged
Anonymous Profiles: Identify customers anonymously and link their rich histories of data to their profiles once they become known.
New for Intelligence (formerly Datorama)
The use of intelligence is that it unifies marketing analytics and provides insights. Thus, marketing intelligence platforms allow their users to connect all their marketing technology stacks for comprehensive, AI-driven analytics.
Intelligence Reports for Engagement: Marketers are no longer using email opening metrics to measure engagement. The improvements will divide the email performance by device, client, OS, and browser, and develop new KPIs for conversions, clicks by link, bounce types, unsubscribes, complaints, and click event lag.
Interactive Visualization: Quickly and accurately analyze and compare deep data sets across advertising, marketing, and business data. Compare currencies, channels, campaigns, time series, and business units in one customizable view.

The customer service platform gets a new lease of life to make conversational insights actionable (i.e. slice and dice conversational content into understandable copy for agents). Then connect it with marketers.
