Combine this with the fact that digital is quickly becoming the de facto medium for customer interactions, and it’s easy to see why it’s essential that CMOs build an effective, efficient, and scalable marketing technology (aka MarTech) stack.

There’s an alarming digital divide within many companies. Marketers are developing nimble software to give customers an engaging, personalized experience, while IT departments remain focused on the legacy infrastructure. The front and back ends aren’t working together, resulting in appealing websites and apps that don’t quite deliver.
