Implement a CDP with ease using mParticle's sample applications

Developers rarely look forward to integrating third-party systems into their projects. The learning curve to understand vendor platforms is time-consuming and diverts attention away from more interesting product initiatives. Our sample applications address this problem by helping developers understand how mParticle works on various platforms and providing production-quality, copy/paste-ready code to implement our CDP with ease.

How to choose the right foundation for your data stack

If you’re relying on downstream activation tools to combine data events into profiles, don’t. You’ll end up with fragmented and redundant datasets across systems. Enriching each data point before it is forwarded downstream will prevent this problem, but not all customer data infrastructure solutions deliver this capability.
