Getting your Trinity Audio player ready...

We've already talked here on the blog about what it is programmatic media and how important it is to implement it in your company. In this same context, let's talk about What is a DMP (Data Management Platform) and understand how it works.

In this post we will cover:

  • What is a DMP
  • How a DMP works
  • Why implement a DMP
  • What are the main DMP tools

What is a DMP (Data Management)

A DMP, or data management platform, is software that manages data from different channels, interpreting, collecting and organizing it, providing useful information to its user.

One DMP uses user ID (identification) and cookie management to segment audiences and direct advertisements to the target audience defined by the platform user. This way, you can obtain more targeted data to create more assertive audiences, optimizing campaigns and ads, creating more chances of conversion.

How a DMP works

The tool collects data from three different sources: 1st party data; 2nd party data and 3rd party data.

1st party data is obtained from our own channels, such as websites, social networks, email marketing campaigns, landing pages, CRM and applications and mobile devices. This is information that the potential client provides us spontaneously (work carried out, for example, in marketing strategies inbound marketing).

So-called 2nd party data is the same types of data obtained in 1st party data, but is obtained from third-party channels. Likewise, 3rd party data comes from third parties and is generally purchased, but complements the 1st party and 2nd party information, being data such as age, gender, income, geographic location and interests.

In this way, DMP performs data collection, processes the information and uses it for programmatic media data. This is how segmentation is carried out, with the creation of audiences and the identification of which audience to impact, on which channels and in what way.

Why implement a DMP

The biggest benefit of DMP is targeting the target audience. Transform all that big data in information and using it in the best way to reach your audience is the big business of platforms.

With this, you will be able to target your campaigns, optimize the user experience, improve ROI of your campaigns, structure efficient campaigns and manage several online campaigns at the same time.
