Data Privacy planning in 2021

October 20, 9:00 am - 9:30 am PST

By 2023, 65% of the world’s population will have its personal information covered under modern privacy regulations, up from 10% today. Unsurprisingly, this trend is driven by shifting consumer expectations. 

So, how can companies adapt to evolving attitudes and set themselves up for success, while respecting data privacy?

Daniel Alvarez, Chief Product Officer at Quartz, has some advice to offer businesses on this matter. In this session, you’ll learn how first-party data, managed by a CDP, can help build a proactive, customer-first approach to data privacy and compliance. 

Unlock personalized omnichannel experiences with customer data

October 20, 10:00 am - 10:30 am PST

In today’s connected world, consumers usually travel across several channels using multiple devices before making a purchase. This creates a complex web of omnichannel customer data that can be near impossible for businesses to manage. 

For e-commerce fashion retailer, Stylepit, and educational marketplace, Outschool, the solution to this issue began with the right data foundation. In this session, you’ll hear from Data Scientist, Martin Brummerstedt, Stylepit, and Outschool Engineering Manager, Erwin Alberto, about how they successfully deepened customer relationships at scale with a CDP.

How FOX generates 376% more visitors with personalized content

October 21, 8:30 am - 8:45 am PST

Digital viewing has surged over the past few years – causing cable and satellite subscriptions to dwindle. As a broadcasting company, FOX knew that it needed to adapt and provide a top-notch customer experience on their viewers’ preferred medium. 

FOX’s Executive Vice President of Technology Platforms provides an inside look at how they were able to generate 373% more visitors with personalized content, deliver record-breaking coverage of Super Bowl LIV, and save 78,000 some-odd hours of engineering times when it came to setting up and maintaining integrations. 


How Allergan gave their customer experience a makeover

October 21, 2:30 pm - 3:00 pm PST

As a global pharmaceutical company, Allergan had traditionally followed a B2B2C model: products had to be administered by healthcare providers, who then educated patients about said products. But today's consumers do their own research; they want to know more about the brands they choose to use. Which led Allergan to ask: how can we connect more directly with consumers, and strengthen this brand relationship (instead leaving it all to healthcare providers)? 

In this session, Allergan details how they strengthened customer relationships and broke down data silos that had previously held them back. You’ll hear from their Director of Marketing Technology about how Allergan switched to a more direct-to-consumer strategy, built unified customer profiles, and was able to activate real-time personalization.
