Customer data platform (CDP) Lytics announced updates to its platform that will allow users to integrate customer journey execution with Salesforce Marketing Cloud (SFMC). Lytics’ campaign orchestration capabilities can now be used across a number of marketing technologies, including Facebook and SendGrid – in addition to the new SFMC integration.
The integration between Lytics’ CDP and SFMC is expected to allow marketers to import existing campaigns to build new experiences within the Orchestrate Journey canvas. The insights delivered from Lytics can then be used to inform more targeted campaigns and be sent to SFMC for delivery.
Why we should care
Delivering personalized, one-to-one marketing at scale is something we strive for as marketers. Our disparate martech environments tend to complicate this, and customer data platforms seek to address these complications by providing users with a single view of their customer data from the different tools they use. Marrying this data into a single view should help marketers extract new insights to further inform their campaigns.
“The best customer journeys are an open road,” said James McDermott, CEO of Lytics, “and for us, that means giving marketers the freedom to choose multiple paths by integrating with their existing marketing technology stack.”
