Lytics, the real-time Customer Data Platform (CDP), announced today a built-in integration with Google Cloud BigQuery that will allow Lytics customers to move massive amounts of customer and raw data into Google’s cloud-based data warehouse environment for real-time analytics. Marketers now have a fast, simple way to aggregate data from a wide variety of sources and stage it in a secure, scalable environment for deeper analysis using advanced machine-learning and any analytics tools. By combining the Lytics CDP platform with Google Cloud’s data warehouse platform and additional third-party analytics, real-time insights about behavior and intent allow marketers to answer their most pressing questions.
Lytics and BigQuery together give marketers the best of two complementary technologies: Lytics’ intelligent profile, advanced segmentation, and affinity-based marketing capabilities, and Google Cloud’s easy-to-use, simple-to-scale data warehouse solution. Because BigQuery supports a variety of analytics tools including Looker, Data Studio, and Google Analytics, Lytics customers can now get even more value from their data by analyzing, visualizing, and super-sizing it in Google Cloud. Building a data warehouse is now as simple as starting a sandbox in Google Cloud, allowing marketers to bypass the traditional barriers to large-scale analytics and the IT complexity typically associated with them.
“With today’s announcement, marketers now have access to Lytics intelligence, an industry-leading data warehouse, along with their preferred analytics tools,” said James McDermott, CEO and co-founder of Lytics. “Through Lytics’ intelligence, marketers can now receive a deeper real-time understanding of their customers’ behaviors, interests, and motivations from the customer data that resides in BigQuery.”
“Consumers expect the entire brand experience to be more streamlined and personalized than ever before,” said Debanjan Saha, VP and General Manager, Data & Analytics, Google Cloud. “We’re excited to partner with Lytics to integrate BigQuery functionality, helping marketers gain new insights to ultimately transform the experience for their customers.”

- Dig deeper into data from a wide variety of different sources to better connect the dots between campaigns and sales conversions;
- Visualize data to instantly assess campaign results, identify trends, and more;
