Simplify Data Integration with the New Connectors Workflow

 In Under the Hood

It’s a fresh month and Tealium is rolling out a fresh new look and feel building connectors in Tealium AudienceStream CDP and EventStream API Hub! A connector, simply put, is an integration between Tealium and another technology. The Connector Marketplace in Tealium is where our customers like the Utah Jazz, Gap inc, Barcelo Hotels build integrations and actions that put their customer data to work. 

When new digital customer experience initiatives or driving digital transformation is brought up, integrations typically aren’t one of the first things on top of the discussion list. But they should be. Companies large and small spend a significant amount of time and development resources in getting integrations built. In fact, Gartner found that integration work alone would account for 50% of the time and cost for companies building digital platforms through 2020. 

That’s where a unified data infrastructure and Tealium’s 1,200+ turnkey integrations come in allowing businesses to easily fuel their stack with trusted customer data all without spending time and costs associated with building ad hoc integrations. 

Today we’ve released significant updates to the connector workflow experience for AudienceStream CDP and EventStream API Hub that improve the user experience of the platform, help customers scale their work and make building integrations and actions on customer data a breeze. Let’s take a look at what’s new!
