Keynote: Leveraging Identity Resolution as the Foundation for Marketing In A Post-Digital World
Joe Stanhope, Vice President & Principal Analyst, Forrester Research

Marketing has always been about knowing the customer. And knowing the customer means being able to identify them. As customer experiences become more complex and span multiple interactions, channels, and devices, identity resolution will make or break brands’ ability to harness customer insights and orchestrate marketing programs. As one of the few truly unique assets corporations own, the customer identity graph will become the basis for monetizing customer relationships and building sustainable competitive advantages.

This presentation will discuss:

  • The future of marketing in customers’ moments
  • The evolving importance of identity resolution as a strategic imperative
  • The current and emerging applications of robust identity resolution
  • A framework that brands can follow as they develop their own identity resolution strategies
