Takeaways From Digital Velocity
We rocked out at the Hard Rock last week in San Diego. Our first annual user conference was a huge success and the team at Tealium is still riding on Cloud 9 from all the great responses we received from those in attendance. A sold out crowd of more than 200 customers, speakers, and special guests roamed “Abbey Road” (one of the Hard Rock’s cool murals) at Digital Velocity. We took tons of a few photos to capture the magic as it was happening. Check out our Facebook page or Flickr album to view some great shots. Thanks to all of those who have contributed to our growth thus far, and get ready for what’s in store!
As our new CEO Jeff Lunsford mentioned several times, Tealium prides itself on being fanatical about customer success. We are dedicated to ensuring our customers are happy and get great value from our solution. Jeff gave attendees a clear vision of the future, including a data-centric product focus, increased staffing across the board, and continued focus on customer success.
Jeff kicked off the event by sharing a few impressive numbers:
- 130+ enterprise customers signed in 2012, giving Tealium 160+ customers worldwide
- 400+ vendor integrations
- 90 percent competitive win rate
- $10.5m invested in Series B funding, led by Battery Ventures

Launch of Tealium DataCloud
As part of Digital Velocity, we were excited to announce Tealium DataCloud, a new add-on service that extends the value of Tealium iQ by enabling digital marketers to tap into a highly actionable source of all of their digital data. Users of Tealium DataCloud benefit from improved data collection, standardized data and control, and access to an actionable data source. It doesn’t look like we’re alone in our excitement either, Gary Angel recently blogged about it during his recap on Digital Velocity. With Tealium DataCloud, the company is leading a new era of data-centric tag management.
Tag Management University Makes its Debut
One of the biggest highlights at Digital Velocity came on Day 2, with the launch of Tag Management University (TMU), the first formalized tag management training program. Led by Clint Ivy, attendees learned fundamentals and best practices for using Tealium iQ, then got their hands dirty in our interactive labs.
