  • 69% of organisations in APAC are already using first-party data to expand or nurture their existing customer base.
  • 75% of marketers already have at least a basic understanding of the positive value of first-party data — among which include being more useful in personalising engagement, targeting the right customers, and providing more accuracy, flexibility, and control.
