The tried-and-true playbooks that we all had pre-pandemic no longer work. As marketers, you shouldered more responsibility this past year as executive leadership charged you to play a larger role in driving sales amid seismic shifts we still face today.
I've talked to many clients who've shared how they've retooled their strategies quickly to address new market realities.

This constant innovation required marketing teams to lean on each other and their tools.
In light of the added pressure, I’m especially proud that our customers continue to say that our products prove their mettle. And I’m honored that Oracle won six awards—more than any other company—in Adweek’s 2021 Readers’ Choice: Best of Tech Partner Awards.
More than 10,000 Adweek readers cast votes this year, including digital marketing leaders and their hands-on teams that rely on us every day.

As marketers continue to navigate through these seismic shifts and refine marketing best practices, the goal remains the same: to deliver proactive, relevant experiences across integrated advertising and marketing channels to drive better business outcomes.
With a robust suite of solutions, Oracle Advertising and CX helps marketers simplify martech stacks, create a single view of the customer and optimize advertising investments to make every interaction matter and every impression more valuable.
Many thanks to our customers and Adweek readers for the continued recognition.
