DMA: Data and Marketing Association
Why DMA?

Data Community

Data is the fuel of marketing, and trust is the engine it fuels. Data management platforms abound, but there are challenges to finding the right one(s) for your business, and even more challenges in activating that data safely and securely in support of business goals. Data is not a marketing function, but a business asset – and the use of data must be governed across the organization in a cross-functional manner.

Our Data Community advances the myriad of opportunities and challenges that make data and responsible data practices the lifeblood of 1:1 business and consumer marketing, with a focus on earning consumer trust.
