Understanding Sources, Destinations, and XDM Schema

  • Sources

The Sources act as a repository of data from where we may want to include data in our decision-making database, which acts as the primary pool of information through which targeting occurs. The user can take data from adobe solutions, third-party software, or your preferred CRM.

  • Destinations-

The Destinations is the final amalgamation of the sources with the profile sent to specific targeting. Be it through Email services, Web push notifications, App push notifications, or a combined approach of all these channels. Additionally, the advertising on various networking platforms hugely benefited from the desired data.

  • XDM Schema – 

While the data flow might be cleared to you now, how exactly is the data required in RT-CDP? Well, this is done through XDM Schema. All the data has to be denormalized and provided to Adobe’s RT-CDP. This data then helps in curating the ID Graphs. The data inputs can be taken in batch format or streaming. This model and the Schema mapping allow the seamless data flow between the connecting channels. 

Orchestrating a journey for a case of credit card – 

So, the problem at hand was to effectively use real time data to serve meaningful communications, which should progress to lead conversion. 

For that, an effective communication program had to be designed- A customer logs into a bank portal and completes a transaction. Through a web push notification, he receives a credit card advertisement, but somewhere along the way, he drops off. And so, that’s where the game of automated workflows collecting real-time data starts. Through app push, the person receives a notification indicating that his activity of applying for a credit card is left halfway. This marketing activity was a great push to a potential customer. It was found that after integrating a unique sound attached to a notification, the open rate was comparatively higher than that of a normal notification sound. 

After that, a workflow orchestrating and containing several emails as well as sms delivery was triggered to convert potential customers. The journey was designed so that a combination of messages and emails was triggered according to the actions performed by the user. 

As seen above, it is one of the many journeys the company uses to enhance the reach and capture of the audience. 

 A robust strategy, along with the proper implementation of accurately designed nurture campaigns, helped the company to have an increased number of leads to customers. The usage of real-time data showed a jump of 18% in users interacting through our content to move further into the sales funnel, and so, Indeed, Adobe’s capabilities to drive a full-fledged campaign worked.
