Acquired by Twilio in 2020, Segment is a Customer Data Platform (CDP) that offers real-time data connectivity and efficient data. Segment's core focus is gathering customer data through event tracking. It has unique features that allow you to segment your customers, and create personas and audiences for better targeting.
As pointed out in this Capterra review:
"Segment is a great tool, if you can afford it then you should start using it right now."

  • Pre-built and maintained connectors for popular data sources
  • Has advanced features for managing customer data
  • Easy to setup and use

Cons

  • Heavily skewed toward sales and marketing platforms
  • Custom integration or customization is really hard to do
