First-party data FAQ.

Why should I pay attention to first-party data?
Your own data gives you the most accurate picture of your customers. Second- and third-party data provides more of a representative sampling due to privacy limitations related to the type of data may be shared and user consent restrictions.
 
How can first-party data improve engagement rates? 
Customer details within your ecosystem provide greater relevancy to the experiences you deliver, so your customers are more likely to respond favorably to marketing experiences — as opposed to messages from brands they haven’t interacted with before.  
 
Where does Adobe Audience Manager pull data from?
Ad servers, CRM/POS, email, SMS, mobile apps/web, call center, in-store beacons, and web-analytics systems. 
 
Why should we invest in first-party data when we can easily buy third-party data?
Despite the investment required to capture and leverage first-party data, overall costs compare favorably over time versus buying data from a third-party vendor.
 
Should I be concerned with data quality?
Not necessarily. Cookie- or session-based data from your web analytics platform, CRM systems, and business analysis tools provide control over how data is collected, processed, stored, managed and secured. Therefore, you can spot quality issues more easily.
 
Does Audience Manager run on real-time data?
Yes. Our data management platform updates as data is ingested, providing a continuously clearer view versus second- and third-party data that come in fixed segments.
