Marketing clouds have told a compelling story in the last decade. They’ve appeared easy and convenient. But in 2020, with ever-changing privacy regulations and consumer expectations, marketers need technology that is flexible, integrated and adaptable.

Enter customer data platforms. CDPs help transform companies by providing marketers with tools to easily unify their data—without forcing them to sign a multiyear contract or buy an entire suite, just for one- or two-point solutions. Essentially, they help marketers build a bespoke marketing tech stack or suite that fits their business needs.

eMarketer was pleased to moderate a Tech-Talk Webinar presentation featuring BlueConic's Cory Munchbach, chief operating officer, and Sean Gouldson, director of solutions consulting. They shared how to liberate your data from the confines of a marketing cloud and realize the value of your first-party data and marketing tech stack.

View the webinar and learn:

  • Why brands are deserting Marketing Clouds in favor of building their own martech stack
  • Why the function and flexibility of CDPs fulfill the broken promises left by Marketing Clouds
  • How to increase the value and utility of your existing marketing tech stack with a CDP
