BlueConic Named the Only Challenger in Inaugural 2024 Gartner® Magic Quadrant™ for Customer Data Platforms

BlueConic recognized based on Completeness of Vision and Ability to Execute

BOSTON–(BUSINESS WIRE)–#AI–Market-leading customer data platform (CDP) BlueConic today announced that it has been recognized as the only Challenger in the inaugural Magic Quadrant for Customer Data Platforms. We believe this industry recognition marks a major milestone for CDPs and the maturity of the space on a global scale.

BlueConic differentiates from other vendors for its:

Privacy-by-design philosophy: Maintaining responsible data practices is essential for garnering consumer trust, but maintaining compliance with a patchwork of regulations is only getting more difficult. That’s why BlueConic has been built with privacy at the forefront. The platform has been purposely designed to collect first-party data in ways that ensures it is unified, actionable, and privacy-compliant. Collecting and using data within the framework of privacy regulations like GDPR and CCPA enables companies to build trust and deliver valuable customer experiences, while mitigating their consumer data risk at the same time.

Easy-to-use interface: To keep up with customers and market trends, customer-facing teams need the ability to directly access, analyze, and activate first-party data when and where they need it. With BlueConic’s easy-to-use interface, these teams can effectively harness the full potential of first-party data to optimize customer experiences while reducing their reliance on external vendors, streamlining internal processes, and improving their agility in the process.

Data clean rooms capabilities: With third-party data deprecation and increasing privacy constraints from customers and regulators alike, companies are looking for ways to extend the value of their first-party data. BlueConic was the first customer data platform to offer a data clean room, enabling companies to facilitate second-party data sharing in a neutral, secure, and privacy-safe environment so they can build upon their valuable, consented first-party data.

“Companies across industries have unprecedented opportunities to collect customer data, but often struggle to derive meaningful insights or take effective actions based on that data, especially when it’s housed in data warehouses and removed from the immediate customer experience,” said Cory Munchbach, CEO of BlueConic. “Our comprehensive, purpose-built platform, coupled with an unparalleled customer experience, empowers our innovative customers to unlock a wealth of insights and act faster so they can achieve better returns on their data. We have, and always will, make both the operational efficiencies and performance success of marketers our north star.”
