Our glossary

Activate - Lexer product that allows you to send audience segments to your integrated marketing and advertising channels.

Activation - Segments that have been sent to your chosen marketing or advertising channel. Activations can be either ongoing (continues to update daily) or once- ff.

Activity - Lexer product that allows you to monitor the performance of your customer service team operating in Respond.

Amazon S3 - Also known as Amazon Simple Storage Service is an object storage service that allows users to store and protect any amount of data for a range of use cases, such as data lakes, websites, mobile applications, backup and restore, archive, enterprise applications, IoT devices, and big data analytics.

API (Application Programming Interface) - Lexer offers a suite of APIs that allow your developers to push and pull your data from the Lexer CDXP, and supporting products and features. These APIs allow you to read and write profiles, transactions, and customer-event data. This information can then interoperate with other systems and platforms, and add new functionality to Lexer products.

Attribute - Any fact we know about an individual customer or prospect. Attributes contain information about purchases, email engagement, web and app analytics, survey responses, and demographics.

Audience Split - Feature of Activate that allows you to split your activated audience into 50/50 or 90/10 for experimentation.

Case - A reporting concept in Activity for measuring conversation metrics.

CDP - A customer data platform is a type of software which creates a persistent, unified customer database that is accessible to other systems. Data is pulled from multiple sources, cleaned and combined to create a single customer profile.

CDXP - The Customer Data and Experience Platform. This is the product that Lexer offers and we transform disconnected data into actionable insights and provide the workflow tools to automate and optimize the customer experiences that drive sales.

Channel - A view of your integrated data destinations in Activate.

Data schema - A computing term used to describe data structures, i.e. a database table might have a schema of a name that is a string, an age that is an integer, and a gender that is a string. At Lexer, we map your data schema to ours in order to create attributes.

Dataset - Lexer uses datasets to manage data received from integrated data sources, which have been transformed and organised into Lexer’s standard schema.

Probabilistic - Probabilistic record linkage, sometimes called fuzzy matching, takes a different approach to identity resolution by taking into account a wider range of potential identifiers. For each pair of identifiers between records a model estimates a match or a non-match, and using these weights to calculate the probability that two given records refer to the same entity.

Profile - Customer or prospect that exists in your CDP. Profiles are made of Attributes sourced from your customer data, social data, partner and 3rd party data.

Quality Assurance (QA) - One of the stages of data onboarding at Lexer. Our Data Ops team will upload your data files, and then during QA ensure that no valid data has been rejected by the data pipeline/CDE, all jobs have been correctly implemented, and that any inconsistencies in your data are identified.
