Is the CDP class being shrunk by acquisitions?: Monday’s Daily Brief

Good morning, Marketers, and what number of extra impartial CDPs will likely be wolfed up?

I believe it’s truthful to say there’s a development right here. Since CDPs emerged as a class (round 2016, in keeping with the CDP Institute) we turned accustomed to wanting throughout a panorama of impartial distributors, most with barely completely different choices below the CDP umbrella. From Datorama to Tealium, from Amperity to Segment, from ActionIQ to AgileOne — there have been loads of them.

Then they began getting picked off and built-in into broader advertising and marketing suites. Salesforce’s acquisition of Datorama occurred manner again in 2018. The following yr, DXP Acquia absorbed AgilOne. Last yr, cloud comms platform Twilo picked up Segment. Earlier this yr, two different DXPs, Optimizely and Sitecore, acquired Boxever and Zaius respectively. Last week, Zylotech turned a part of ABM platform Terminus.

Now I’m not saying the class is near depletion but, however there’s a sample right here. The query it prompts for me is that this: Are distributors including CDPs to their platforms simply so as to add perceived worth to their choices, or is the true worth of a CDP realized within the context of a platform moderately than as a standalone answer? I don’t have the reply but.
