How has the company developed in recent years?
As mentioned briefly above, the technology stack is in constant flux as brands work to deliver the most meaningful experiences to their customers. Over the past few years, we’ve seen how complex these different solutions make it difficult for teams to work in a unified way, so we’ve made it easy for them to connect the dots between these tools through our platform. With technical users now playing a bigger role in developing these experiences, we’ve prioritized tools for collaboration between marketing and other departments.
The role of AI in marketing has also increased, but it’s only by providing actionable and easily measurable business outcomes from machine learning that we’ve been able to gain the trust needed for greater adoption. Finally, increasing consumer privacy concerns have forced a better balance between personalization and privacy, and we’ve been at the forefront of that work, releasing a suite of solutions for teams to deliver positive digital experiences that respect end-user privacy.
What can we hope to see Dynamic yield in the future?
We have an incredibly exciting year ahead of us. We were recently accepted into the MACH Alliance, a non-profit group of independent technology companies committed to open, best-in-class technology ecosystems. Our inclusion is reflected Dynamic yield‘s graduationAbility to provide a flexible, composable, and scalable foundation for personalization.

In addition, we see demand from increasingly diverse markets and industries that are striving for personalization and we want to be the main driver of their digital transformation. And that’s just the tip of the iceberg – stay tuned for more exciting updates from our team throughout the year!
