Global launch of SAP Customer Data Platform
SAP is launching the Customer Data Platform (CDP), which aims to help organizations integrate customer data in every interaction, from commerce and marketing to sales and service. The Customer Data Platform from SAP is based on Gigya technology. In 2017, SAP acquired Gigya, a provider of identity and access management tools, and at the same time gained more consumer data for cross-channel communication. Since then, SAP has been working to integrate the Gigya identity platform with its cloud-based customer data services.
SAP Customer Data Platform is one of the most advanced enterprise-grade CDPs. It can truly deliver personalized experiences that nurture anonymous users into known, loyal customers using the customer’s preferred channels, unifying vast amounts of front-office, back-office and experience data as only SAP can.SAP Customer Experience President Bob Stutz
