Strategic partnerships with big data and e-commerce platform vendors help Tealium customers solve marketing’s big data challenge at its source
San Diego, CA (August 6, 2013) – Tealium, the leader in enterprise tag management, today announced record growth during the first half of 2013 as the company continues to see strong demand for its products and services worldwide.
Tealium saw a 280 percent increase in revenue during the first six months of the year, compared to the same period last year. The company also more than doubled the number of enterprise customers between June 2013 and the same month last year. Select new clients include The Weather Channel, Vodafone, Travelocity, Petco, Lufthansa, McAfee, GameFly, Interstate Batteries, Newegg.com, ProFlowers, and many more.
Tealium CEO Jeff Lunsford attributed the first half results to the company’s continued focus on customer success, as well as the January launch of Tealium DataCloud, a new digital data distribution platform – or “D3P” as Forrester Consulting refers to it in a new survey and report, the “Evolution of Tag Management” – that provides a timely, cost-effective way for organizations to consolidate and correlate customer interaction data across digital touchpoints.
“Tag management is evolving, and marketers now see its greater value as a managed service for collecting and segmenting digital visitor data,” Lunsford said. “Our customers benefit from having a solution that can help solve tagging challenges, as well as advance their customer data integration initiatives. Digital marketers are finding a huge big data challenge in piecing back together the mosaic of data that is created across all of their digital touchpoints by all of the digital marketing vendors they use. Tealium DataCloud allows our customers to completely avoid these issues before they start, by correlating cross-channel, cross-vendor data in real time, at its point of creation. Tags are the source of most of this data. Tealium DataCloud solves marketing’s big data challenge at its source.”
Highlights in the first half of the year, ending June 30, include:
- A 110 percent year-over-year increase in enterprise customers worldwide
- Several new strategic integration partnerships with major digital marketing and big data providers, including Splunk, ExactTarget, Magento, Demandware, and others.
