Tapad Launches a CDP

Tapad Repositions Itself as Identity Vendor and CDP

Tapad

Cross-device identity aggregator Tapad has repositioned itself as a general-purpose customer identity system. While they’re at it, they’ve launched what they call a Customer Data Platform.

It’s also positioned as a way for marketers to escape the walled gardens.
