Marketers are well aware today’s customers demand frictionless experiences that are relevant, personalised and differentiated. It’s equally apparent harnessing data and technology is key to fulfilling the CMO’s mission to drive company growth.
Yet without a clear connection into IT, many marketers continue to struggle to realise their organisation’s customer potential and build that unified customer view.
Marketing’s growing data demands of speed, availability and agility to meet rapidly changing customer behaviours don’t always align with IT’s traditional modus operandi of developing and maintaining hard-coded, legacy systems. While marketers look to improve conversion and consistency of message and engagement across front-end channels, CIOs are tasked with turning technology into revenue, governing and mitigating against data risk and keeping the tech stack cost-effective, efficient and primed for whole-of-organisation use.
Without a clear business case and goals for customer-oriented data projects, marketers all-too often find themselves falling down the priority list as technologists focus efforts on better articulated programs of work. What’s more, without a collaborative relationship with IT based on trust and transparency, marketers remain frustrated in their efforts to build an agile, data-led customer approach.
