In today's constantly changing B2B marketing landscape, the ability to continuously adapt and evolve is no longer a choice but a necessity.
On the external front, B2B buyers anticipate companies to provide personalized experiences that align seamlessly with their needs at every step of their buying journey across their preferred communication channels. Internally, marketing and sales teams are expected to deliver tangible business results and demonstrate their value while working within tighter resource constraints. Not to mention the added complexity of emerging technologies and privacy regulations.
To navigate this dynamic landscape and prove their value with less, marketing and sales teams must eliminate the silos between disparate data systems and processes. This unified marketing and sales through integrated data and streamlined workflow is crucial for delivering a consistent experience across the customer life cycle and achieving profitable long-term business growth.
We are delighted to share that Oracle has again been recognized as a Leader in 2023 Gartner Magic Quadrant for B2B Marketing Automation Platforms for the eleventh consecutive year1,2. Gartner defines companies in the Leaders quadrant as: “Leaders provide functionality that support all assessed B2B marketing automation functional capabilities, most notably customer profile management, lead scoring/qualification, analytics and measurement, and integrations with other applications. Leaders have expansive product roadmaps, demonstrating a commitment to helping clients apply AI to lead generation processes and manage a consistent experience across the customer lifecycle.”
We are proud of our large community of thousands of Oracle Eloqua customers in every industry worldwide who have entrusted us to help them further streamline their marketing and sales operations and deliver a paramount customer experience.
