RealCDP™ is a certification program managed by the CDP Institute. It defines a set of features required for a product to perform the functions that most users expect from a CDP. The intent is to reduce confusion among buyers of which systems to consider. Vendors are issued the RealCDP badge upon completion of a thorough audit conducted by an independent authority. All Sponsors of the CDP Institute meet the RealCDP criteria, but non-Sponsors can also be certified. For details, contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
