Making MarTech Pay Off
Driving financial value through better technology strategy, investment, selection, integration, management and innovation
Today’s CMO must harness the power of MarTech to deliver an excellent customer experience. It’s the reason why CMOs continue to invest in MarTech with spend projected to reach $122 billion by 2022, according to Forrester Research. Financial and brand value depend heavily on the CMO and CIO crafting a sound strategic plan with choreographed execution.
Yet problems abound in the CMO-CIO relationship, resulting in ineffective technology adoption. The MarTech vendor landscape has more than 8,000 solutions, many of them narrowly focused and posing challenges in data integration and unified user experience. Lapsed collaboration with IT at various points along the technology lifecycle, as well as ad hoc tech buys, has created an architectural nightmare stymieing MarTech returns on investment.
In this thought leadership program, the CMO Council and KPMG explore strategies for ideal alignment between marketing and IT that maximizes MarTech ROI and financial value. Topics span strategy, investment, evaluation and selection, architecture, data integration, solution management, and innovation and agility.
