Marketing clouds aren’t all the same. Duh. Talk to any marketer who’s tried to make sense of the more than 2,000 products available, and you might see their eyes glaze over at the sheer volume.

It’s exactly why VB Insight dove in to uncover the truths inside the marketing cloud ecosystem. We saw that marketers needed a way to understand the strengths – and shortcomings – of what’s offered.

The result is a120-page report reviewing 18 marketing clouds in five different categories including enterprise-grade solutions (Adobe, IBM, Salesforce, and others), evolved marketing automation platforms (like Marketo) and single-platforms built for a single defined purpose such as personalization, customer experience, or omnichannel (such as SDL, Sitecore, Sailthru, and AgilOne.)

At the risk of boasting, we’re confident that the report is likely the most detailed, comprehensive, and data-driven marketing clouds report ever created. (And yes, we’re familiar with the recent marketing clouds reports from the big research houses.)

In this don’t-miss webinar, we’ll cover all the essentials of the report and make sense of the differences between the various platforms. And which ones are best for different size companies and needs.

But we’re not beyond teasing, so here’s a little preview: Adobe led the crowd in our 12-category scoring matrix followed closely by Salesforce. We’ll explain why in detail.

But even though they scored lower overall because of a more single focus, it would be a mistake to ignore some of the newer players emerging from the customer experience and omnichannel space: companies like Sitecore, SDL, Salithru and AgilOne.

But how do you know what you need? And when? VB Insight’s VP of Research John Koetsier, and Ticketfly’s VP of Marketing Kristina Wallendar will be talking about just that — and more.

  • What’s a marketing cloud, anyways?
