Many brands are unlocking new value by investing in a customer data platform (CDP), but the CDP Institute’s latest member survey found that just 23% of consumer marketers -- one core group of CDP users -- have completed their projects on time and on schedule. Common causes for delays during CDP implementation include not having well-defined use cases and lacking organizational alignment. But don’t fear... obstacles throughout CDP selection, implementation, and adoption are well documented and easy to mitigate with a few key steps.

Join Michael Bastedo, Product Owner of Omnichannel Personalization at M&T Bank, and Tim Mattessich, Customer Success Manager at ActionIQ, as they discuss key learnings from M&T Bank’s own CDP implementation as well as industry best practices.

After this session, you'll be able to:

  • Explain key business initiatives driving M&T Bank’s CDP evaluation and selection
  • Build a business case that creates internal evangelism
  • Optimize your own CDP deployment with insights from M&T Bank’s implementation
