Salesforce has announced on September 27, 2017, the launch of Salesforce Data Studio, a data sharing platform designed to connect data owners with buyers and “create new marketing opportunities for audience discovery, sharing and activation.”

The Salesforce press release explains that, as a part of the Salesforce Marketing Cloud, Salesforce Data Studio will enable marketers to expand targeted reach with valuable audiences, provides publishers a secure way to monetize their audience data assets and empowers any data owner to directly provide their data to buyers.

“Salesforce Data Studio overcomes the inadequacies of legacy data exchanges and marketplaces,” the release announced, adding: “With Salesforce Data Studio, the data is fully controlled by data owners, not brokers or resellers, so buyers and sellers can transact with confidence in a transparent and secure environment. Software-enabled data governance tools allow for a highly granular way to control access to data: what attributes are shared, to whom, for what use case and for how long.”

According to the press statement, Salesforce Data Studio delivers:

  • Deeper Customer Insights with New Audience Discovery and Search: Marketers, agencies and publishers can now better understand existing audiences and discover new ones to drive more revenue. New Audience Discovery and Search combines insightful reach, overlap and indexing tools into one easy-to-use, consolidated experience, providing instant insights into available data and how it relates to a brand’s owned data.
  • More Reach for Marketers: With limited first-party data and commoditized third-party data, marketers need access to quality second-party data to discover new audiences, enrich consumer profiles and reach new potential customers. For example, Conagra, owner of brands such as Hunt’s Tomatoes, leverages Salesforce Data Studio to find health-minded home cooks on popular recipe sites. Marketers who have embraced Salesforce Data Studio include some of the world’s largest brands, including Anheuser-Busch, Conagra, Essence, Heineken, Infectious Media, Keurig and Super Digital.
  • More Revenue for Publishers: Now publishers can tightly control who can access data, set rules for usage and control pricing. For example, Tronc (formerly Tribune Media) has found new revenue streams through making its high quality data available to a wide array of large advertisers. Publishers who are using Salesforce Data Studio to safely share data with trusted partners and advertisers include Bazaarvoice, Digital Trends, Fanserv, Gatehouse Media, H Code Media, Kayak, Leaf Group, Penske Media Corporation, Publishers Clearing House, Ranker,, Univision, The Enthusiast Network and Townsquare Media.
