What is Customer Profile Designer?

Pega’s Customer Profile Designer enables organizations to collect, aggregate, and curate real-time streaming data, map it to their customer profiles, and immediately start using it as model predictions and arbitration rules – drastically reducing the time-to-value for new data sources and attributes.

The result? a fully contextual and connected experience, that drives better engagement, higher NPS, and increased conversion rates.

Frequently Asked Questions

What is a Customer Data Platform?

A Customer Data Platform (CDP) is a software application built to support marketing and CX use cases, by unifying a company’s customer data from marketing and other channels. CDPs optimize the timing and targeting of messages, offers and customer engagement activities, and enable the analysis of individual-level customer behavior over time.

What challenges or outcomes lead organizations to purchase CDPs?

Organizations turn to CDPs to help them:

  • Activate the massive amount of data they have – collected from customers, channels, and lines of business across the organization
  • Operationalize analytics and AI - to analyze customer interactions, predict behaviors, and generate value-add recommendations
  • Rationalize their technologies - consolidate 1000’s of applications into a manageable suite of “core” solutions
  • Humanize their customer relationships - move from sales-based interactions, to more relevant, value-add experiences
What are the core capabilities of a Customer Data Platform (CDP)?

Per the CDP Institute:

  • Ingesting all types of customer data
