MRM sits at the Center of Marketing – Forrester Report

There are currently a number of software sectors and acronyms laying claim to being at the center of the marketing process, acting as the orchestrator of the digital or customer experience and forming the central element of a marketing technology solution architecture. Or, to use a sports analogy, the first player on the team sheet of digital transformation.

In the October 2017 Forrester research report “Vendor Landscape: Marketing Resource Management”, however, author Rusty Warner, Principal Analyst at Forrester Research makes a great case for Marketing Resource Management (MRM) to take this position and in addition, the report includes censhare among the providers of such a solution.

The entire report is available to Forrester clients or for purchase.

This is a thorough piece of research, with 35 vendors covered in detail and another 36 on the periphery, and states that:
