Who does what, who gets the cash, and who’s in charge?

There’s a lot of change in enterprise these days. Companies are doing social and marketing tech, back office and front office. We’re busy with CRM and HR, finance and enterprise content management. Meanwhile, theoretically, someone’s still keeping the lights on, and someone else is ensuring privacy regulations and corporate security issues are addressed.

billion-dollar enterprise startupsMeanwhile, only 28 percent of CIOs have an “excellent” relationship with CMOs in large enterprise, according to a recent study by CIO Research.

In the new enterprise tech stack, who does what, who makes which decisions, and how do the CTO, CIO, and CMO work together to implement corporate strategy? And how are the job definitions and roles changing — or perhaps even merging?

Those are exactly the questions we’re planning to address in a free webinar on June 3.

It’s sponsored by application performance management company New Relic, and we’ve got great speakers: Hubspot’s CMO Mike Volpe; Chief Martec himself, Scott Brinker, who is also CTO of Ion Interactive; and the founder, CEO, and executive editor of Chief Digital Officer, Tim Bourgeois.

We’ll hit on enterprise systems and marketing tech and how they interface. We’ll talk about systems of record versus systems of engagement, who pays for which, and who makes purchasing decisions. And we’ll talk about corporate data — big and small — and privacy, security, and compliance.

Most importantly, we’re going to talk about how CMOs, CIOs, and CTOs can work together to build not just a harmonious working relationship, but a single, clear, integrated digital strategy for their companies.
