This is the challenge that IBM’s various marketing platforms face. These include Silverpop and Unica for marketing automation, along with Watson and other Business Intelligence platforms for valuable insights. More

PMG University

A few months ago, I stepped into our CEO’s office with an idea that had been floating around in my head for a few days. The premise was simple: What if we could build a simple framework to share all of the knowledge and expertise we’re accumulating as digital marketers?

I’m sure I’m not the only one who was surprised to see Oscar-winning actor Kevin Spacey walk on stage at Content Marketing World 2014 in Cleveland this fall, one of the largest content marketing conferences out there today.
