D&B Visitor Intelligence within Adobe Analytics

A company’s anonymous web visitors are identified to enhance website engagement and turn unknown visitors into leads. Anonymous visitors are identified by matching IPs, cookies and mobile device IDs to Dun & Bradstreet’s proprietary business identifier the D-U-N-S® Number, unlocking both company and persona visitor data. Marketers are well positioned to analyze audiences and build target models to fuel programmatic, deliver highly personalized site content and measure marketing success along the customer journey.

Abobe customers get immediate access to robust B2B audience insights in the Adobe Marketing Cloud. Dun & Bradstreet’s proprietary Digital Identity Resolution accurately pinpoints two-thirds of U.S. businesses through IP and cookie-based matching techniques, tying visits, visitors and personas directly to a company and an office location through the D-U-N-S Number. IP-only based solutions recognize just 1.5% of companies in the US, and can’t match the visit to an office location.
