Functionality Description
Activate account audiences generally available The functionality to activate account audiences to certain destinations is now generally available for companies purchasing the Business-to-Business and Business-to-Person editions of Real-Time Customer Data Platform. Read the tutorial on activating account audiences to get complete information, including supported destinations.
Digital Markets Act Consent Enforcement tools for Google destinations Google is releasing changes to the Google Ads API, Customer Match, and the Display & Video 360 API in order to support the compliance and consent-related requirements defined under the Digital Markets Act (DMA) in the European Union (EU User Consent Policy). Enforcement of these changes to consent requirements is expected to go into effect starting March 6, 2024.

To adhere to the EU user consent policy and continue creating audience lists for users in the European Economic Area (EEA), advertisers and partners must ensure they are passing end-user consent when uploading audience data. As a Google Partner, Adobe provides you with the necessary tools to comply with these consent requirements under the DMA in the European Union.

Customers who have purchased Adobe Privacy & Security Shield and have configured a consent policy to filter out non-consented profiles do not need to take any action.

Customers who have not purchased Adobe Privacy & Security Shield must use the segment definition capabilities within Segment Builder to filter out non-consented profiles, in order to continue using the existing Real-Time CDP Google destinations without interruption.
Beta Reorder mapping fields for batch destinations You can now change the order of the columns in your CSV exports by dragging and dropping the mapping fields in the mapping step. The order of the mapped fields in the UI reflects in the order of the columns in the exported CSV file, from top to bottom, with the top row being the leftmost column in the CSV file.

This feature is in beta and only available to select customers. To request access to this feature, contact your Adobe representative.
Beta Preselected default export schedules for batch destinations Experience Platform now automatically sets a default schedule for each file export. See the documentation on scheduling audience exports to learn how to modify the default schedule.

Sandboxes

Adobe Experience Platform is built to enrich digital experience applications on a global scale. Companies often run multiple digital experience applications in parallel and need to cater for the development, testing, and deployment of these applications while ensuring operational compliance. To address this need, Experience Platform provides sandboxes that partition a single Platform instance into separate virtual environments to help develop and evolve digital experience applications.

New or updated features

Feature Description
Sandbox tooling In addition to now supporting object types for consent and governance rules, use sandbox tooling to import schemas without unified profiles enabled, check for missing attributes in the target sandbox when importing a segment, and default to using the existing merge policy. For more information on these features, see the sandbox tooling UI guide.

For more information on sandboxes, read the sandboxes overview.

Segmentation Service

Segmentation Service allows you to segment data stored in Experience Platform that relates to individuals (such as customers, prospects, users, or organizations) into audiences. You can create audiences through segment definitions or other sources from your Real-Time Customer Profile data. These audiences are centrally configured and maintained on Platform, and are readily accessible by any Adobe solution.

New feature

Feature Description
Account audiences Account audiences are now generally available! You can now use account segmentation to bring the full ease and sophistication of the marketing segmentation experience from people-based audiences to account-based audiences in both the B2B and B2P Editions of Real-Time Customer Platform. This release lets you use people-based audiences as a predicate to account-based audiences, adds search capabilities, supports the usage of custom entities, and is compliant with Data Governance. For more information about this feature, please read the account audiences overview.

Sources

Experience Platform provides a RESTful API and an interactive UI that lets you set up source connections for various data providers with ease. These source connections allow you to authenticate and connect to external storage systems and CRM services, set times for ingestion runs, and manage data ingestion throughput.
