Whether your organization’s MarTech integration efforts are going smoothly or have created a Frankenstein stack, BDEX has the third-party data solution it needs.
Global CMOs are getting stretched thin these days. On top of their traditional mandates of lead generation and brand building, they are being asked to find and implement technologies needed to extract marketing intelligence from the growing torrent of data their organizations produce each day.
The complexity and dollars involved in this digital transformation make it a high-risk/high-reward undertaking. CMOs who succeed stand to create powerful data marketing platforms, turbo charge their real-time personalization efforts and gain a step in the MarTech arms race. Those who fail, risk squandering millions of dollars in resources creating what the industry has lovingly come to call a “Frankenstein stack.”
Nearly all – 96 percent – of respondents to the Marketo 2017 Marketing Benchmark Report agreed that the task of finding and integrating MarTech solutions can distract CMOs from their primary mission of helping acquire and keep more customers.
Such is the price we pay when it comes to learning how to implement new technologies, and indications are that global brands are still in the early days of their digital transformations. CMOs, it would appear, will have to keep tabs on multi-million-dollar, multi-year IT integration projects on top of their day jobs for years to come.
Where BDEX comes in
The good news is that thanks to BDEX, CMOs and the brands they represent don’t have to miss a beat during this tumultuous period. They can rely on BDEX to fulfill all their U.S. consumer data needs whether they are halfway through their digital transformation, have completed it or plan to forego it and continue relying on agencies and other vendors for marketing data.
BDEX can say this because of how we have integrated an unparalleled network of third-party data providers with an extremely robust ID graph and uniform taxonomy to power human connectivity.
The BDEX ID Graph
These all come together via the BDEX ID Graph, which tags all data signals coming in from our partners in real-time using a uniform taxonomy that spans more than 5,500 tags and 500 industries. This enables us and our customers to query nearly a trillion real-time data signals from more than 70 data providers using the same taxonomy.
On top of this, the BDEX ID Graph constantly reviews logins, app downloads, credit card purchases, and other authenticated real-time signals to make sure the incoming data signals are matched to the right Customer ID.
We do this by building one of the industry’s largest cross-referenced libraries of email addresses, mobile device identifiers, browser cookie IDs and U.S. Postal addresses. Our library spans 800 million mobile-to-email ID and cookie-to-email matches. If someone upgrades from an iPhone 8 to a Samsung 10 or switches from a Google Pixelbook to a Microsoft Surface, the BDEX ID Graph detects it the moment the user downloads an app or logs into an authenticated account tracked by any one of our data partners.
Our use of authenticated identifiers enables 100 percent deterministic cross-device matching, which means you can have 100 percent confidence our ID graph is assigning billions of incoming data signals to the appropriate Customer ID.
The BDEX DXP
Thanks to the BDEX ID Graph and our uniform taxonomy, the BDEX Data Exchange Platform (DXP) presents 290 million consumer identities, 1.3 billion email addresses and more than 900 billion data signals in a highly searchable database.
You can peak under the hood and get a sense of how broad and deep our data is using Explore BDEX Taxonomies, our free and highly intuitive taxonomy tool.
API or batch-mode access
Thanks to our uniform taxonomy, querying this massive database is quick and easy. You can match IDs instantly (10ms response time) using a real-time API query or upload ID lists via batch mode and have IDs returned in hours.
Custom segment building
Either way, you can harness real-time data signals to build or enhance custom audience segments for programmatic advertising, personalization and other projects.
The BDEX DXP provides access to hundreds of pre-built audiences uploaded by our partners. You can use these to fast-track your own audience-building efforts or use them as is until you whip your own MarTech stack into shape.
Whether your organization’s MarTech stack ends up humming like a Lamborghini or shrieking like Frankenstein, or your organization opts to continue relying on agencies and other external vendors, it’s going to need access to third-party data. You’ll be hard-pressed to find a better one-stop shop for that than BDEX.
