As one of the largest data management software companies in the world, our increased scale allows us to expand the scope of partnership with customers so that they can maximize the value of all their data.”
The combined portfolio brings together capabilities in location intelligence, data enrichment, customer information management and engagement solutions with data integration and optimization software.
