Like any customer data decision, selecting the right Customer Data Platform is important. As a CDP sits in a foundational position of your growth stack, it’s critical to ensure that your CDP enables your existing tools and empowers stakeholders across the organization, both in the present and the future. That said, just because your CDP evaluation is important doesn’t mean it has to be complex. 

To help streamline your evaluation process and decrease time to value, we’ve created a vendor comparison tool. The tool makes it easy to prioritize the feature categories that are most important to you, and to track how different CDP vendors match up.
