Level up your data skills

CDP Academy

Welcome to the CDP Academy

We created this virtual institute of higher learning for any business leader looking to make better use of customer data. Today's businesses face no shortage of customer data, but many still struggle with turning that data into the competitive asset it should be.

A Customer Data Platform (CDP) is the foundational layer for collecting, analyzing, and activating customer data. This resource will explain what a CDP is, what it does, how to choose the right one, and how to make the most of it. Feel free to jump to the part that interests you most, or read straight through the entire course.
