The teams at Echelon DS, a full-service data solutions provider, and Confection, a privacy-first data generation solution, see the pivot to privacy-first as a prime opportunity to dream bigger and build better data for the martech and adtech industries.

David Ruddel, Machine Learning Expert at Echelon DS, explains the issue they and Confection are tackling: “Traditional identity resolution techniques rely on fragile, easily-interrupted data sources like IP addresses, cookies, and cross-domain scripts. That’s the technical challenge. Socially and culturally, we also see an increased interest in data protection rights. For both of these reasons, we see traditional means of resolving identities being steadily depreciated.”

“To adequately model the complexities of the human experience,” Quimby Melton, CEO of Confection, says, “We need multi-layered ‘quantum’ identity resolution techniques. Working as partners, Echelon DS is helping us build a malleable, evolution-enabled identity model based on real-time preferences and actions, sudden changes in consumption velocity.”

Since Confection was founded, Echelon DS has been by their side to develop these AI-driven technologies and find the ideal product-market fit in a wildly changing martech industry.

By reinventing traditional identity resolution models, Confection helps customers minimize client-side disruptions and build targeted, well-rounded, privacy-respecting marketing campaigns.

Together, Confection and Echelon DS are reinventing the standard for identity resolution in a way that’s good for marketers, brands, and people alike.
