Salesforce achieved highest score among all reviewed vendors in strategy and market presence categoriesSAN FRANCISCO—June 5, 2017—Salesforce (NYSE: CRM), the global leader in CRM, today announced the Salesforce Data Management Platform (DMP) was named a leader by Forrester Research in its report The Forrester Wave™: Data Management Platforms, Q2 2017.

Salesforce DMP has been able to manage our user identify issues, providing deep matches to second- and third-party data sources and addressing a broad range of design needs.’ Surveyed customers gave Salesforce DMP high praise for change management, segment creation and management, data security and leakage prevention, flexibility and usability of the user interface, privacy capabilities, cost, and overall flexibility.”

“In today’s connected world, marketers must leverage data to personalize every experience a consumer has with a brand across ads, websites, social marketing, commerce and more,” said Bob Stutz, CEO of Marketing Cloud, Salesforce. “With Salesforce DMP, companies can harness billions of data signals to optimize every touchpoint of the customer journey and build breakthrough brand experiences, deepen consumer engagement and improve business performance.”
