Lotame’s data management platform (DMP) allows you to collect, organize, and activate data from any source to gain a holistic view of your consumers, to power efficient and effective marketing campaigns and more relevant content. Lotame's global data exchange (LDX) provides you with access to billions of third-party data points with a focus on quality.

When a user lands on a page that has both the Lytics JavaScript tag and Lotame tag, Lytics will initiate a cookie exchange with Lotame in order to mutually identify a user. After Lytics and Lotame have a shared view of a user, Lytics can export audience details to Lotame via a Lytics managed S3 bucket.

Before You Begin

Contact your Lotame account manager to let them know you'll be initiating an audience export to Lytics's S3 bucket.

Sending audience membership to Lotame requires some coordination between Lytics and Lotame. Lotame can receive audience membership data in various services. This integration chooses to send audience membership data to a Lytics-managed SFTP server. Lotame will be able to access the SFTP folder.
