INDIANAPOLIS, Feb. 22, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Aprimo®, a global leader in cloud-based integrated marketing software, today announced a powerful new Campaign Management feature for Aprimo® Relationship Manager. The new Extended Data Source (xDS) allows users to pull information from other databases into a Teradata Database, and then easily integrate it into their marketing campaigns. Using a simple drag-and-drop interface, marketers can now instantly utilize data from service desks, inbound and outbound call centers and other transactional systems that use third-party databases. xDS extends the information that can be leveraged to power campaigns, providing turn-key segmentation, and enabling better marketing decisions.
"Aprimo is committed to continuing to enhance our Campaign Management solutions and xDS is another step on the journey to help our customers leverage strategic data to create effective integrated marketing campaigns," said Gonzalo Hidalgo, Aprimo's Vice President of Product Strategy. "Let's say marketing wants to include information from the call center in event-based upsell campaigns. In the past they would have had to work through IT to obtain this data and integrate it. With xDS, they can now import, access and analyze the data and decide how to segment the campaign at the click of a button, saving time and ultimately making the campaign more nimble and successful."
A key advantage of xDS is that it empowers marketers to integrate multiple data streams into their campaigns without having to call on IT each time—enabling turn-key segmentation by incorporating all the information stored in the database into campaigns without any additional configurations. Once a customer has used the pre-packaged system to create an xDS asset, he or she can add to, copy, modify or reuse that data in any number of future campaigns. xDS allows marketers to leverage the horsepower of Teradata to drive decision management for their campaigns—across all their data sets.
The xDS enhancement will be unveiled at next week's Aprimo 2012 Marketing Summit (#AMS12), in Las Vegas, where customers will have the opportunity to learn more about Campaign Management and other Aprimo Integrated Marketing Management solutions.
