To comply with GDPR, BlueVenn is having to reimagine itself

For Consumer Data Platform BlueVenn, the upcoming General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) means it has to think like a company that it’s not.

It must think like a company that interacts with consumers, since it provides a golden master of customer data records for its hundreds of client companies.
