Introduction

IBM UBX (Universal Behavior Exchange), one of AppsFlyer's integrated partners, is a feature of the IBM Marketing Cloud and other IBM Commerce offerings, allows marketers to take control of all their customer data integration with an easy-to-use console. This open data exchange capability provides a contextual view of customer buying behaviors across all channels, devices and interactions, so marketers can quickly design and deploy effective campaigns, delivering meaningful experiences in an instant, while driving ROI.

 Important!

Some media sources restrict sharing data with 3rd parties. AppsFlyer cannot share user level data of users acquired through these media sources with 3rd party platforms or services. All installs from such media sources are therefore sent as organic.
