Gartner's digital marketing transit map

Analyst firm devices a new infographic to try and help marketers understand the complex digital marketing landscape

The analyst team at Gartner has compiled a new infographic based on a metro map to visualise the current digital marketing landscape for marketers.

According to Gartner, Neighbourhoods represent functional regions that can be thought of as practice areas within an organisation. The tracks connect these and should be considered as application services that share common objectives and information. Stations represent interaction points that can be thought of as vendor and product categories that provide platforms and point solutions, while intersections represent transfer points where solutions may serve more than one business area.
