Quiz: Are You Ready for Salesforce Data Cloud?
Salesforce Data Cloud is a customer data platform (CDP) that integrates with Sales Cloud and Marketing Cloud out-of-the-box, which means it’s much easier to implement than other CDPs. Don’t mistake this to mean you can jump in and get setup right away though.
For new accounts, there is still a lot of groundwork to be done before you go connecting your platforms, whether they’re Salesforce or third-party. Rush into it and like any new software implementation, you can end up with problems caused by inaccurate data, unreliable analytics, and other issues with your existing platforms that corrupt your shiny, new tool.
On the positive side, if you’ve been following best practices in terms of:
Platform integration and syncing
Campaign tracking and reporting
Marketing automation and customer journeys
Business Unit configuration (if relevant)
You should be set.
