Identity resolution challenges

Today’s rapidly evolving customer journeys and omnichannel user experiences heighten the need for robust identity resolution capabilities. In order to remain competitive and execute successful contextual marketing, analytics and orchestration outcomes, companies must combat data fragmentation by integrating known and anonymous user information into unified user profiles compiled from a multitude of data sources, touch points and interactions. To connect the dots and meet these pressing identity resolution challenges, visionary companies turn to enterprise-grade customer identity and management (CIAM) solutions to enable seamless, cross-channel marketing and consumer experiences.
