Smarter Marketing
Accelerators and Assessments


Smarter Marketing: Accelerating the path to value

In today's mobile, socially connected and digitally transformed world, marketers have access to more consumer data than ever before. Insights from analysing this data can help marketers understand — and therefore engage — customers as individuals, creating a "system of engagement" that maximises value creation at every touch and provides a consistent brand experience across channels. For CMOs, this capability to engage empowered consumers individually is not an option anymore, but an imperative that will define success or failure. For many, building the capability will mean radically rethinking the role marketing plays in the larger organisation and building a case for transformation. So how do you get started?

IBM Global Business Services offers a portfolio of business assessments and short consulting engagements specifically designed to get CMOs started on the marketing transformation journey. These assessments provide rapid, structured, measurable and actionable ways to get started with understanding each customer as an individual, building a system of engagement and protecting the brand promise.
