Q1 Product and Feature Releases
There are two ways to effectively deliver data.
Device-based delivery- This is where the data is coming directly from a device. Tealium is sending pixels from a customer’s browser directly to a technology vendor. Today, Tealium has over 1000 vendors in our marketplace.
Cloud-based delivery- New in Tealium, cloud-based delivery is when one pixel is sent into an event gateway system, and then that system relays the data to vendors. This simplifies the process by sending one data stream to a cloud based repository, and then the data is sent to vendors. This type of delivery allows for increased site performance, reduces the load on a device, reduces battery taxation and much more.
In today’s world, both delivery options are needed. As more vendors start to allow for cloud-based delivery, Tealium will continue to build out this marketplace.
Connector Marketplace Redesign
The Connector Marketplace redesign allows for Tealium to continue its vision to be the place where marketers go to be successful. Now, you can easily see what you can do with with specific vendors without having to go through a configuration process.
Elements of the redesign include-
Integrations more clearly exposed
Immediately see what you can do with specific integrations
Ability to sort by connector type
Previously, all integrations and their documentation were only available in the Tealium product. Now, all of this information is publicly documented on tealium.com/integrations so if you have others on your team, such as marketers or developers, that need access to this information it is all available on the Tealium website.
We live in a connected world, but different countries have different requirements and approaches to data.
Regions enables users to configure when you start collecting data, where the data is going to reside- whether that is isolated to a continent or a country.
With the recent changes to Safe Harbor, you need a partner you can rely on that can collect data properly and abide by the rules of individual regions.
