A Crawl, Walk, Run Approach to Data Integration

In today's multichannel world, there are few things more exciting (and daunting) than integrating visitor data across all of your customer touch points. While you might be tempted to pull everything in all at once so you’ll have it, ‘just in case’—be mindful that this is, in fact, a very counterproductive and flawed approach to data collection.
