The General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) was implemented on 25 May 2018 and we’re already seeing states propose their own data protection and privacy laws here in the United States. Wondering what impact GDPR has had on marketing since inception ,or what regulations are coming to the states and how to prepare?

#001 - Customer Data Platforms with Martin Kihn (Part 1 of 2)


Subscribe: iTunes | StitcherGoogle PlayRSS

On this episode I talk with Martin Kihn on Customer Data Platforms which is a feverishly hot topic and category in the current landscape of marketing technology. Martin spent the early part of his advertising career at Digitas in New York before stopping in Minneapolis to work for Fallon as the Director of Analtyics enroute back to New York where he is currently the VP of Research at Gartner.

Advertising is in his blood so it was my mission to convince Mr. Kihn to join me on The Digital Measure Show and get his perspective on this still young and undefined category. Mission complete! 


  • The challenge that Gartner clients are looking to solve and the role of the Customer Data Platform
  • What part of the organization owns the Customer Data Platform
  • How Customer Data Platforms differ from Data Management Platforms, Tag Managers, and even CRM databases  
  • How vendors may differ and why it's a confusing and difficult category for marketers to approach 
  • The likely future of this category and the capabilities that are not yet available
