Marketing Technology Landscape reviews 8000 different technologies - no wonder everyone is #lost and #confused #Martech

Marketing Technology Landscape reviews 8000 different technologies - no wonder everyone is #lost and #confused #Martech | WHY IT MATTERS: Digital Transformation | Scoop.it

Welcome to the 2020 edition of the marketing technology landscape. Yes, it grew once again, by 13.6%, up to a total of 8,000 martech solutions. That's after 615 from the 2019 landscape went away, either consolidated with another martech company or simply gone defunct. If you were predicting consolidation, an 8.7% churn rate from one year to the next is pretty significant attrition to support that narrative.

Farid Mheirs insight:

WHY IT MATTERS: this list keeps growing and changing every year. No wonder marketing people are lost and confused, don't know where to look, what to choose. And this post predicts the trend is not about to change any time soon...

Gartner Magic Quadrant for Access Management describes the importance of continuous adaptive risk and trust assessment (CARTA) but highlight cost-reduction as primary goal of IT to move to SaaS sol... | WHY IT MATTERS: Digital Transformation | Scoop.it

As remote work increases access management tool adoption, and security controls shift to identity, the ability to secure access with AM strategies aligned with continuous adaptive risk and trust assessment is paramount. Cost optimization for IT spending (e.g., AM) will also increase during 2021.

Farid Mheirs insight:

WHY IT MATTERS: as with most quadrants, the most interesting elements lie in the market definition and overview sections, not in the quadrant or ratings themselves. Notable in this quadrant is the fact that Amazon AWS, Salesforce and Google solutions have been excluded, as I assume they would be in top quadrant.

Interestingly, companies continue their move to SaaS solutions (no surprise) and focus on cost-reduction instead of customer satisfaction (weird, no?).

Raising your Digital Quotient via @McKinsey is 5 years old and has not aged a day since then, check it out! #lepanierbleu #digitalTransformation | WHY IT MATTERS: Digital Transformation | Scoop.it

McKinsey has been conducting an in-depth diagnostic survey of 150 companies around the world.

Gartner Hype Cycle for the Digital Workplace 2020 post-covid highlights a number of digital technologies that enable remote workers #digitalTransformation #digitalWorkplace | WHY IT MATTERS: Digital Transformation | Scoop.it

Large enterprises needing to pivot quickly and push innovation to the edges may be encumbered by heavy management and control structures. However, internal talent marketplaces have the potential to change that. They establish trust through feedback mechanisms. They allow for worker-led innovation and help workers take full control of their careers. They enable much better and more granular tracking of the skills, competencies, knowledge and interest of individual workers. This, in turn, will give enterprises a much better view of their workforce and improve workforce planning. Internal talent marketplaces will help bring about leaner, more agile and more adaptable organizations.

Farid Mheirs insight:

WHY IT MATTERS: this report is a great summary of the digital technologies that can support the remote workers as part of digital transformation of businesses.
