Microsoft’s Brand New CDP – Customer Insights


Know your customers like never before with a real-time customer data platform. Discover the new, powerful engagement insights from Microsoft that delivers  the most comprehensive view of your customers.

Holistic view of Customers : To understand Customers or Prospects by Unifying and Enriching data in complete, centrally accessible profiles that deliver more personalized experiences. Create comprehensive view of each customer across channels—including campaign responses, in-store and online visits and purchases, loyalty redemptions, customer service encounters, social interactions, or IoT signals.

Data from Multiple Sources equals Comprehensive Insights : Access demographic, transactional, or behavioral data in real time from a variety of sources. This data helps ensure customer profiles are up to date and can generate relevant insights.
Simplify the process of pulling in data with pre-built connectors available for myriad first- and third-party data sources, and organize customer data to derive powerful insights.

Unify Data for More Actionable Insights:  The Data Unification Process aims to bring together data that is locked in disparate systems and applications to create a master customer data set for a more complete view of your customers.

The data unification process entails three steps: Map, Match, and Merge.

In the first stage, entities are mapped to a Common Data Model (CDM) schema.In Customer Insights, entities are data sets.

Many of the product processes—including data unification, relationships and segmentation, and measures and activities—are organized around the entities you choose.

Once the entities have been identified, select the attributes that you want to combine and reconcile in the Match and Merge phases.

The Match phase allows you to specify how to combine your data sets into a unified customer profile using deterministic and probabilistic matching. One can learn to evaluate the quality of match pairs and define rules to improve.

The Merge phase is the last step in the data unification process.

Conflicting data, such as customer names or phone numbers, might appear in different formats in data sets for the same record. The primary purpose of this step is to reconcile conflicting data

Enrich Data to Extend Solutions: Microsoft Graph provides proprietary audience intelligence such as demographics and interests, market trends, and product and service usage data. Bring in third-party sources to further enrich customer profiles and find new audiences and segments.

Generate Insights for an Improved Customer Experience: AI proactively recommends segments and generates predictive insights that drive optimized customer experiences and processes.

Discover new audience segments with AI-driven recommendations or define custom segments.
Segments group your customers into Cohorts based on Demographic, Transactional, or Behavioral Attributes.
Define sophisticated filters around the customer profile entity and its graph of related entities. Each segment outputs customer records that you can export and act on.
Measures represent key performance indicators (KPIs) that reflect the performance and health of specific business areas.
Create an intuitive experience for building different types of measures by using a query builder that doesn’t require you to code or validate measures manually.
Export segments to sales and marketing applications to generate more targeted actions, such as promotional campaigns, sales activities, or customer support.

Activate Insights to Drive Better Solutions : Now that we have seen the power of data configuration and segmentation, let’s look at how this comes to life in day-to-day business operations. The Export destinations page shows you all the locations you’ve set up to export data to.

10 Questions to Ask Your Customer Data Platform Vendor – REDPOINT

A true CDP is an enterprise solution that ingests all sources and types of enterprise customer data to provide an always-on, always-updating golden record that is continually available at low latency to all touch-points and users across an enterprise.

Customer Data Platform

It should help you…

  1. Bring together data from across your organization;
  2. Know all that is knowable about your customers;
  3. Deliver relevant, personalized offers whether customers are in your physical location, online, or on their mobile device;
  4. Recognize a customer across multiple channels and interaction touch-points;
  5. Build progressive profiles and create privacy-compliant persistent customer records that anyone appropriate throughout the enterprise can access when they need it.

There are 10 questions you should ask the vendors on your short list to ensure their platform meets that criteria before you invest in their CDP:

  1. What kind of data structures does the CDP accept? A true customer data platform supports any kind of data, whether batch or streaming, internal or external, structured or unstructured, transactional or demographic, personal or general.
  2. What kinds of databases does the customer data platform integrate with? CDPs are database-agnostic and take an open garden approach to handling data. This means it should be able to function equally well with Hadoop, NoSQL, and traditional data warehouse technologies.
  3. What solutions does the CDP accept data from? The function of a CDP is to provide a fully unified view of the customer. Real customer data platforms are able to ingest data from every solution in the marketing stack, without limitation.
  4. How does the customer data platform resolve customer identities across touchpoints? CDPs are meant to provide a single point of control for all that is knowable about a customer, whether that point of control is in marketing, IT, or elsewhere. Identity resolution — the process through which individual customers’ identities are searched, analyzed, and linked across disparate data sources — is a key facet of learning all that is knowable about a customer.
  5. Can the CDP accept data from offline and online sources? – Many customer data platforms are designed to ingest data only from digital sources. It’s not possible to create a holistic customer view solely with online data. A true CDP accepts data from offline sources just as easily.
  6. Does the customer data platform accept batch and streaming data? Some data tools can process only batch data or only streaming data, not both. Real CDPs accept, ingest, and process both.
  7. Can the lines of business easily leverage the CDP? Customer data platforms are not IT-only solutions. They’re meant to make it easier for marketers and other business users to access the cleansed customer information they need in real time and without IT assistance. IT can be that single point of control that manages the data, but, ideally, they won’t need to use the CDP to provide marketers with models and data cuts.
  8. How flexible is the CDP? A customer data platform that requires expensive updating to accept data from new sources isn’t as robust or useful as a CDP that is built to easily accept new inputs.
  9. Is it easy to keep the unified customer profile updated? The hallmark of a CDP is that it keeps each customer’s golden record constantly updated. If the solution you’re considering can’t do that, it’s probably not a real customer data platform.
  10. How quickly is clean, updated customer data made available? Many solutions help marketing build and maintain a golden customer record, but only a true CDP makes that profile available to marketers and other line of business users in one or two seconds or at most a few minutes. “Onboarding” processes that take 24 hours to ingest new first-party data are not the speed of the customer.
