Acxiom builds links across channels, devices, and applications

In 2014, Acxiom's chief product and engineering officer, Phil Mui, described the system the company had been building to link individuals' activities across the many channels, devices, and applications they use. A single individual may accumulate four different personas via 24 cookies across six different devices; Acxiom's goal was to unify these. The company holds some 5,000 pieces of customer data for each of the 700 million individual consumers in its database.
