With the AudienceStore Connector, you can send visitor profile data to Tealium's Amazon S3 bucket. A visitor profile contains data pertinent to the visitor and their visit (excluding events), typically captured by the Tealium Collect Tag. Rather than exporting one visitor profile at a time, you are leveraging Audiences to draw together large number of visitor profiles that share common behaviors.

The Connector is equipped with two Actions that allow you to pinpoint what data to export and when to trigger the export. Data is compressed in log files and uploaded to the 'audiences' folder in the S3 bucket ONLY after it reaches 100 MB in size or 1 hour passes (whichever happens first). By default, data is stored as JSON (i.e. key-value pairs). In S3, you can download the data and analyze it using the business intelligence tool of your choice.
