Salesforce has announced two new Datorama analytics features that are expected to help marketers bring their data preparation, analysis and visualization to new levels with a no-code approach to data. The new tools, Harmonization Center and Data Canvas, will help marketers cleanse, classify and enrich data for improved analytics and provides a platform for creating interactive dashboards for better insights. Both features are now generally available. Datorama is a part of the Salesforce Marketing Cloud.
Why we should care
The Harmonization Center is a no-code feature that will allow marketers to create consistent brand taxonomies across their siloed data sources. The no-code approach will make data harmonization more achievable for marketers without having to rely on additional technical resources. The Harmonization Center will also allow marketers to validate their data before importing it to Data Canvas to visualize it.
Data Canvas allows marketers to create dashboards to analyze, visualize and present data without needing technical or design skills.
“In order to support our diverse customer base across multiple product lines, we leverage numerous marketing platforms, all of which generate data in various forms, said Brenna Comacchio, marketing science and insights at Autodesk. “Datorama helps us democratize data across this robust marketing ecosystem and compare the success of our efforts across a multitude of marketing channels. We can centralize data across siloed environments, visualize it to uncover actionable insights, and easily share it across the organization.”
