Marketo is a leading marketing automation platform that allows you to identify the right audiences through effective behavioral tracking, and deliver automated, personalized marketing campaigns to enhance their overall product experience. It also offers cutting-edge email marketing, lead management, and revenue attribution solutions. With Marketo, you can deliver enhanced customer experiences and build customized products for businesses across all spectrum - including tech, healthcare, media, manufacturing, and education.

This document guides you in setting up Marketo as a source in RudderStack. Once configured, RudderStack automatically ingests your specified Marketo data, which can then be routed to your data warehouse destination supported by RudderStack.

All the Cloud Extract sources support sending data only to a data warehouse destination.

RudderStack will start importing data from Marketo as per the specified frequency. You can further connect this source to your data warehouse by clicking on Connect Destinations or Add Destination, as shown:

Add Destination

Use the Connect Destinations option if you have already configured a data warehouse destination in RudderStack. To configure a data warehouse destination from scratch, click the Add Destination button.


Is it possible to have multiple Cloud Extract sources writing to the same schema?

Yes, it is.

We have implemented a feature wherein RudderStack associates a table prefix for every Cloud Extract source writing to a warehouse schema. This way, multiple Cloud Extract sources can write to the same schema with different table prefixes.
