3-questions-to-ask-yourself-in-the-sprint-to-scale-first-party-data

how-are-marketers-actually-solving-for-identity-in-a-cookieless-world?

Identity resolution was a major challenge for marketers even before they were confronted with the phase-out of third-party cookies and mobile ad IDs. It’s increasingly important to construct a single, coherent, actionable view of customers across online and offline touchpoints, while understanding the barriers to bringing that vision to life.
