360 vs. standard

Marketing Platform products/product objects have one of two service levels:

  • 360: Designed for businesses that generate large amounts of data, require a more sophisticated set of analysis tools, and that also benefit from a professional-services agreement.
  • Standard: Designed for smaller businesses that generate less data, require a standard set of analysis tools, and do not need the support of a professional-services agreement.

Advertising products are all 360.

The analytics products/product objects can have either service level: for example, with Google Tag Manager, the service level is set for the product; with Google Analytics and Optimize, it's set for product objects (Analytics properties, Optimize containers). You determine the service level after you link a product to your organization, and you can have whatever mix best suits your business: for example, in a single Analytics account, you might prefer a 360 property to support your daily business operations, but need only a standard property to test configurations.

360 accounts and objects are identified with a "360" icon.

In addition, when an account is updated to include 360 objects, the product name is appended with 360. For example, Analytics becomes Analytics 360.
