2019 may be the year where a strong CIO-CMO relationship moves from aspiration to imperative. The notion that marketing and IT should aim to strategically align themselves is not ground-breaking. But the reality of the CIO-CMO relationship is more complex, the route toward its success harder to traverse. When large enterprises are faced with digital transformation and customer-facing initiatives; too often, IT and marketing fail to collaborate well enough to create a competitive advantage. Or even enough to keep up with competitors.
This whitepaper takes a deep dive into the CIO-CMO relationship. It was created to help marketing and IT decision makers learn how, together, they can make a realistic and immediate impact on the customer journey.
Companies that put data at the centre of their business gain better insights and deliver more effective marketing. Data centricity at an organisational level is the priority for larger companies, mindful of the opportunities afforded by more scientific commercial decision-making and data-driven marketing. A focus on data alone in the context of customer analytics is not enough, however. Companies require insights from their data to deliver first-class customer experiences that give them a competitive advantage.
Our global survey of more than 1,000 business respondents shows that companies are rightly focused on activities powered by actionable insights as opposed to focusing on data for its own sake. More effective segmentation and targeting (65%), and better marketing attribution (52%), are the top data-related priorities for marketers, while ‘technologists’ (including analysts, ecommerce, and IT professionals) are primarily focused on making their organisations more data-centric (50%
Let’s face it: in today’s B2B landscape, the buyers call the shots. Buyers today are proactive, research

So, where does that leave the salesperson? To succeed in this new landscape, sales professionals must
understand how the buyer’s journey has changed and unlock the advantages that data analytics and
statistical modeling can offer. Sales and marketing teams must also learn how to align their efforts to
present a truly coordinated experience.
Read this paper to learn how to take advantage of untapped opportunities for helping sales teams
evolve in today’s buyer-empowered landscape.
