Customers with Intelligence Reports Advanced will now be able to add Data Extensions (DEs) and query them with Engagement data.

This feature lets you add up to 30 DEs to your Queries and opitmise future messaging based on performance by audience attributes. You also get to understand the structure and rows of your Data Extensions with standalone queries.

Customer Data Platform

This lets you expand personalisation capabilities for messaging and journeys, as well as connect data from across the enterprise.
