SAN FRANCISCO, CA and SANTA MONICA, CA — June 2, 2016 — Oracle Data Cloud, a leading global data-as-a-service solution provider, and Edmunds.com, the leading car information and shopping network, today announced that Edmunds' car shopper data is now available exclusively through the Oracle Data Cloud.
Edmunds' data assets — which will be delivered via the Oracle Data Cloud to automotive advertiser and affiliated companies — include anonymized audience segments of users who have shopped, researched, and priced specific makes, models, years, and types of vehicles. Through the Oracle Data Cloud partnership, marketers can combine this information with other data on past vehicle purchases, demographics, and other behavioral data to build custom target audiences.
"We are committed to delivering marketers unparalleled data on car shopping behaviors, and Oracle Data Cloud offers a robust distribution network and strategy to deliver on this commitment," said Edmunds.com Chief Technology Officer Paddy Hannon.
Edmunds' data is available through Oracle's BlueKai Marketplace and a wide range of connected data management platforms, trading desks, demand side platforms, mobile platforms and other media companies, including Google, Verizon AOL, Twitter, and hundreds of others. By combining Edmunds' data along with Oracle Data Cloud's comprehensive auto data assets, marketers can reach car shoppers and buyers at every stage of the purchase cycle through their media platform of choice.
"Edmunds is a company rich in data assets and market knowledge, and they've always been an industry-leading innovator to help auto marketers succeed," said Joe Kyriakoza, VP and GM of Automotive, Oracle Data Cloud. "We see this partnership as two leading companies collaborating to build better solutions for auto advertisers. Oracle Data Cloud is now clearly a top destination for all facets of automotive data to meet marketers' needs."
