A data management platform (DMP), also called a unified data management platform (UDMP) is a centralized computing system for collecting, integrating and managing large sets of structured and unstructured data from disparate sources.

The term is most often associated with products and development projects that promise to help marketers and publishers turn data from offline, online, web analytics and mobile channels into information that can be used to support business goals.
