Destination SDK for partners

Adobe Experience Platform Destination SDK is a set of configuration APIs that allow you to configure destination integration patterns for Experience Platform to deliver audience and profile data to your endpoint, based on data and authentication formats of your choice. The configurations will be stored in Experience Platform and can be retrieved via API for additional updates.

Adobe Real-time Customer Data Platform and the destinations service - an overview

Built on Adobe Experience Platform, Adobe Real-time Customer Data Platform (Real-time CDP) helps companies bring together known and unknown data to activate customer profiles with intelligent decisioning throughout the customer journey. Real-time CDP combines multiple enterprise data sources to create unified profiles in real time that can be used to provide one-to-one personalized customer experiences across all channels and devices.

In Adobe Real-time CDP, destinations are pre-built integrations with destination platforms that allow for the seamless activation of data.

Adobe connects to a large ecosystem of partners, not to mention native integrations with Adobe Experience Cloud, allowing customers to seamlessly activate these audiences and deliver great customer experiences across all channels, from on-site or in-app personalization to email, paid media, call centers, connected devices, and more.

This documentation set provides instructions for you to use the Adobe Experience Platform Destination SDK to integrate with Adobe Experience Platform as a partner, and have your destination become part of the ever-growing destinations catalog.
