Introducing the Dun & Bradstreet Data Cloud
Comprising over 300 million business records, more than 120 Million hierarchy members, and with 375 million data elements updated per day, our Data Cloud provides unparalleled depth and breadth of business information. It is curated from tens of thousands of global sources – including both online sources and our Worldwide Network of global data partners.
Derived from the Dun & Bradstreet Data Cloud is our Live Business Identity, which represents all information about any given entity in the Dun & Bradstreet Data Cloud. Live Business Identity helps ensure you have the most accurate and up-to-date view of business entities. The starting point of Live Business Identity is the Dun & Bradstreet D‑U‑N‑S® Number, a proprietary, unique 9-digit identifier for businesses that allows us to track a business and its related data and connections throughout the full lifecycle of that business.
Live Business Identity
Comprehensive and Continually Updated View of Business Entities
Like personal identities, which are much more than a fingerprint, Live Business Identity is more than the D‑U‑N‑S® Number – it is “the DUNS” PLUS additional valuable elements, starting with the identification of connections between entities, which our D‑U‑N‑S® Number enables. Live Business Identity also provides many use-case specific data elements about a company including: Device identifiers and IP addresses for targeted digital marketing, industry profiles for intelligent sales prospecting using enriched customer data, extensive payment history for better predictability, supply chain mapping for insights into suppliers’ suppliers and entity ownership insights to know who ultimately benefits from a company’s performance. Predictive and Prescriptive analytics and scores round out the insights Live Business Identity delivers.
Live Business Identity benefit customers in many ways, including:
• Earlier identification of growth opportunities
• Avoidance of potential risk, fraud, and compliance issues
• Deepening of customer, supplier, and partner engagement
