    How Do You Stack Up? Practical Advice for Constructing & Managing Your Marketing Tech Stack

    In every industry, marketing technology stacks are growing in size and complexity as more products are deployed and integrated, and multiple teams throughout the organization embrace marketing technology in support of digital transformation initiatives. It’s not unusual to see companies using more than 100 different marketing tools at any one time. With a need to integrate many of those tools, building and managing the marketing technology stack has become a tremendous challenge for many organizations.

     

    Leveraging the insights gleaned from hundreds of marketing technology stacks, this session will cover the technologies that companies are currently buying, and the hot technologies that they are looking to integrate into their stack. The session will also deliver practical advice to help marketing teams:

    • Establish a marketing stack framework and technology strategy
    • Manage their marketing stacks for optimal impact
    • Collaborate around the implementation and adoption of new technology

    How Marketers Can Take Advantage of Customer Data Platforms

    In a few short years, customer data platforms (CPDs) have made a big splash on the marketing technology scene. Gartner named them one of six marketing technologies to watch in 2018 and the category is expected to reach $1 billion in revenue by 2019. Adoption is expected to grow based on marketers’ growing interest in permission-based marketing, first-party data, and providing unified cross-platform customer experiences. This session, led by Customer Data Platform Institute founder David Raab, will explore how CDPs can enable marketers to better gather and act on customer data, how CDPs fit into the martech stack, tips for sizing up potential vendors, and examples of how marketers are growing sales with CDPs.
