SAN JOSE, CA, USA, 4-Apr-2019 — /EuropaWire/ — The Customer Data Platform Institute today launched RealCDP, a program to reduce the confusion plaguing the Customer Data Platform industry. RealCDP has two components:
RealCDP certification, a five point checklist of core capabilities needed to build a unified, sharable customer database.
CDPFinder templates and vendor information to help buyers find the right CDP for their needs
“The CDP industry faces two challenges,” said CDP Institute Founder David Raab. “First, many firms offering a CDP or CDP alternative fail to build the complete, shareable customer database that is the heart of the CDP concept. Second, legitimate CDPs vary hugely in the additional features they provide, leaving buyers confused by the range of options. These two programs address each challenge separately and, taken together, we hope they will make it easier for buyers to find the products they truly need – and avoid alternatives that will leave them disappointed.”

AMSTERDAM, 15-Nov-2018 — /EPR INTERNET NEWS/ — Marketeers hebben vandaag de dag meer data tot hun beschikking dan ooit, maar worstelen om ze te combineren tot een bruikbare vorm. Customer Data Platform (CDP) technologie belooft dit probleem op te lossen in de vorm van makkelijk te implementeren systemen, die alle klantdata combineren en delen. Maar de vraag die marketeers, IT’ers en executives zich terecht stellen is: kan een CDP echt die beloften waarmaken?
Op 23 januari 2019 hosten het Customer Data Platform Institute (CDPI) en Squadra Group de intensieve marketing workshop, “Making the Most of Customer Data Platforms,” om die vraag te beantwoorden en deelnemers mee te nemen in een deep dive in deze, zich zeer snel ontwikkelende, martech sector, die begin 2019 naar verwachting de €200 miljoen omzet in Europa zal overtreffen.
De workshop zal plaatsvinden in Seats to Meet Utrecht CS (Hoog Catharijne) van 12.00 uur tot 18.00 uur en zal geleid worden door David M. Raab, oprichter en CEO van het internationaal opererende Customer Data Platform Institute. De dag erna zal hij ook een keynote presentatie verzorgen tijdens de DDMA Data Dag over de staat van de CDP markt wereldwijd en in Europa.

Research shows that the best time to take action to reverse pre-diabetes and type 2 diabetes is when you are at the stage of managing these conditions.
Vancouver, BC, Canada, 2018-Nov-06 — /EPR INTERNET NEWS/ — November is world diabetes month. When people are diagnosed type 2 diabetic, the first line of defense is the use of prescription drugs in order to manage the diabetes. But what victims of pre-diabetes and type 2 diabetes are not aware of is that research performed by Just For Diabetics website founder, Ernest Quansah, shows that when patients are managing their pre-diabetes or type 2 diabetes, it is the best opportunity for them to reverse it and be weaned off the prescription drugs. The research results are evidence based. Many doctors and institutions now agree that this is the case. Recently, the University of British Columbia, in conjunction with Pharmasave, a drugstore chain, began offering obese people and type 2 diabetics a diet plan aimed at reversal of pre-diabetes and type 2 diabetes. The cost of their plan is $500 a month. The diet plan calls for no consumption of refined sugar, potatoes, fruit, fruit juices, sweet drinks of any kind, rice, bread, and consumption of cooked vegetables for lunch, cooked chicken breast for dinner and so on. Many of the participants are seniors, the overweight, or obese. After several thousand of dollars spent, many participants lose weight and their doctors take them off their diabetes drugs.
Quansah’s program includes a specialized diabetes exercise regime along with vitamin therapy and a carefully designed tasty menu cycle. He himself completely reversed his severe case of type 2 diabetes after compiling this program, which was the culmination of thorough research. This research included the advice of several physicians. Quansah, founder of Just For Diabetics and the author of Diabetics Journey says: “For several years, I have been educating people about how type 2 diabetes and pre-diabetes can be reversed through the program offered on my website. Now we see that one of Canada’s finest Universities and a drug store chain are doing the same.”
The website, justfordiabetics.com offers a free weight-loss program, a free diabetes reversal program, as well as an inexpensive paid program. The extensive program includes a full menu regime, exercise videos, tutorials, in addition to a cooking video demonstration, all for less than $180. Quansah wisely suggests that those on the program be monitored by their doctors.
Quansah’s research and findings have been published in the WebMD Diabetes magazine in the article “Secret recipe: How a Chef Cured His Type 2 Diabetes”, as well as on the WebMD website. There is hope for reversing pre-diabetes, type 2 diabetes (the type that does not require insulin injections,) and for overcoming being overweight.
“Misinformation about type 2 diabetes is rampant. For diabetics to heal, they need a complete change of attitude and way of thinking. This means, they should not just accept managing their condition, but rather, understand that they can be healed. Further, complacency about pre-diabetes leads to full-blown diabetes, which can lead to heart disease, blindness, liver failure, impotence, limb amputations and early death,” cautions Quansah.
Quansah has been asked to be guest speaker at the Diabetes and Healthcare Conference being held in Helsinki, Norway, in November 2018 and to be keynote speaker at the Diabetes Care Conference being held in Malaysia in May of 2019. His speech topic will include how to help diabetics heal and resultantly reduce healthcare costs.
