They will demonstrate how to enable more contextual and personalized customer experiences in a cookie-less world.

Platforms like Cypher offer an opportunity to interact and exchange ideas with experts in the analytics industry. It’s great to have some of our top minds at Merkle leading the discussion on transforming CX in a cookie-less world,” says Navin Dhananjaya, chief solutions officer, Ugam, a Merkle company.
