Tealium is excited to announce the launch of Data Connect, a no-code, automated data ingestion tool.

Enterprise data sources relevant to customer experience continue to multiply, keeping data integration at the top of martech buyer challenges. According to Gartner’s Customer Data Survey, 88% of firms agree that improvement of customer data management is critical for improving CX. With only 14% of firms reporting that they have achieved the elusive 360-degree view of the customer, this underscores the importance that organizations invest in agile and flexible data collection and integration capabilities to improve CX.

That’s why we’re so excited to launch Data Connect, giving the Tealium Customer Data Hub even more options to efficiently collect and use customer data. Data Connect enables Tealium customers with a powerful new no-code capability to automate the ingestion of customer data from over a thousand new sources— including enterprise data warehouses, CRM systems, cloud applications and more. Whether you’re a developer who wants to write SQL, or a less technical business user who wants a no-code interface, Data Connect has you covered.

No-code, Automated Ingestion of Data-at-Rest for a More Effective Customer View

While some organizations are more ambitious than others with their “single view of the customer”, what’s clear for all organizations is that there’s a diverse array of systems holding important slivers of an effective view. The imperative to strategically unify those slivers in light of rapidly evolving consumer behavior has only grown due to factors like the pandemic, privacy attitudes, 3rd party cookie deprecation, and regulatory compliance. You simply cannot afford to be missing important context when engaging your customers.

Customer view or profile including data from Data ConnectOften, the difference between using an insight or not is the ease with which you can integrate that particular piece of data. Data Connect gives Tealium customers new options for automating the ingestion of data from increasingly common (yet difficult-to-use for less technical resources) enterprise data sources, making a complete view of the customer more accessible than ever.

These systems hold important clues critical for delivering the best possible customer experience, so less technical teams cannot settle for ad hoc access. Data Connect enables automated access to batched data sources that saves integration time, reduces reliance on IT teams, and opens new possibilities for leveraging formerly difficult-to-access data to create better customer experiences. You decide what data you want from each source and the frequency that you want to pull it in, meaning you can maximize operational efficiency for data integration, while simultaneously optimizing data costs.

Say Hello to Data Connect

Data Connect helps organizations harness the fragmented landscape of teams, systems, and venues that all hold difference-making insights for CX. To effectively function as a customer data platform, you need a vast diversity of integration and customization tools that (1) cover the whole landscape, and (2) are accessible to both business and technical teams.

No-code (or low-code if you want) workflow canvasWhile Tealium has always provided industry-leading tools for unifying data collection with direct measurement, streaming data sources, and importing data from any source with files, Data Connect dramatically expands our ability to automate the ingestion of data from disparate enterprise data sources. 

These disparate enterprise data sources continue to grow alongside every org’s tech stack. These include enterprise data warehouses such as Snowflake, CRM systems such as Salesforce, or even all the cloud applications in each marketing cloud (or clouds as organizations rarely only use one vendor).

What’s Included?

  • No-code, Automated Data Ingestion Workflow – a brand new, API-driven data source for pulling in data in batches
  • Access to 1000+ Data Sources
  • Create New Customer Profiles Even Without a Measured Interaction


Data Connect gives Tealium customers more options than ever to bring in and use data from other systems in a way that saves time without laborious technical effort. Conquer fragmented and siloed data landscapes using Tealium as your swiss army knife of data management and activation.
