This plugin is recommended for large data sets.
Alternatively, you can use Salesforce Marketing Cloud (ExactTarget) Data Connector for small data sets, to write job results.
Treasure Data can publish user segments into Salesforce Marketing Cloud (ExactTarget), and enable you to send personalized emails to your customers. You can run data-driven email campaigns, by using your first-party data from Web, Mobile, CRM, and other data sources.
This data connector is in Beta. For more information, contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
