How to send historical data from Segment?
Behavioral models generally perform best with at least 9 months of training data. However, once you connect Segment, we only receive your data going forward. To send historical data for training, there are two options:
Segment replay (available to Segment Business plan only)
If you're a customer of Segment Business tier, you can ask your account manager to replay your historical data to our destination. This is the most convenient way. Please request a 9 months replay. Learn more.
Sending historical data through Amazon S3
If you are on a lower tier than the Segment Business tier, you can still send your historical data to MadKudu via Amazon S3. To do so, please follow these instructions.
