Segmentation is the activity of filtering a collection of customer or account profiles. Within Treasure Data, you can create segments, based on the touch point from any channel.

You can create two types of segments from your master segment:

  • Batch Segments

  • Real-time Segments

Batch segmentation occurs against master segments built from data across a variety of different sources, and unified using Treasure Workflow and the master segment creation features. As such, these master segments can be more deeply enriched and customized to handle your marketing team’s most complex use cases.

Batch Segments can then be used for exporting to (activating) marketing tools and advertising networks, such as email campaign platforms and social networks. In addition, you can use Batch Segments to enable real-time personalization for people visiting your website, using the Profiles API.

Real-time segmentation operates against streaming data as the data arrives into Treasure Data in real-time. As such, it’s currently limited for use against data deriving from websites with JavaScript SDK installed. In addition, it’s limited to a more narrow range of segmentation logic.

The advantage of Real-time Segmentation is that it can be used to create segments from even the most recent actions taken by someone on your website, including visitors coming to your website for the first time.

Real-Time Segmentation can be used to enable real-time personalization for people who are visiting your website, using the Profiles API.
