The Marketing Cloud Personalization Data Warehouse enables business analysts to connect BI tools to Personalization, and data scientists to analyze and enhance Personalization data as well as use the power of machine learning.
The Data Warehouse is available only to customers who have already purchased the Marketing Cloud Personalization - Data Warehouse add-on product.
This article discusses the following topics related to the Personalization Data Warehouse:
- What data is accessible?
- Physical Data Model Entity Relationship Diagram (ERD)
- Data Warehouse Dimensions
- Data Warehouse Activity (Fact) Tables
For every prospect, customer, and account who engages with your organization, Personalization maintains a unified profile that stores engagement details and a contextual understanding of the individual’s behavior. Profiles also include attribute data ingested from external sources or captured with each web visit. This attribute data includes things like referring sources, geolocation, and browser.
Personalization tracks detailed engagement statistics at the product level, as well as transactional data such as registrations, downloads, purchases, adds-to-cart. Using the Data Warehouse, business analysts can access this information to identify trends and patterns related to their product or content catalogs.
The Personalization Data Warehouse currently doesn’t support data related to User Owned Objects and Article, Blog, and Promotion catalog objects.
The following ERD shows the relationships between the Dimension and Activity (Fact) tables of the Personalization Data Warehouse. The Data Dictionary article provides the complete data specifications on these tables in alphabetical order.
_dw_created_ts field present in all Personalization Data Warehouse tables is a system field for tracking when a record was created. We advise against building dependencies on it as its name or the logic behind it can change without notice.
Instead, we recommend using the
update_ts fields, or other fields documented in the Data Dictionary that are more suited to your use case.
Due to the size of the full data warehouse model, we've provided ERD Detail sections at the end of each dimension and activity table sections for clarity. These sections present just the portion of the data warehouse ERD discussed. These sections show the following information for the tables in the ERD:
- Table name
- Field names
- Field data types (d=date, #=number, t=text/string, b=boolean, c=code)
- Primary Keys (indicated by key icon)
- Foreign Keys (indicated by "up-and-out" arrow)
- Fields used as Foreign Key by other tables (indicated by "down-and-in" arrow)
