Is your marketing keeping up with digital-centric consumer behaviors?

The proliferation of new technologies such as mobile, cloud computing, and artificial intelligence (AI) have transformed customer behavior and disrupted marketplaces — both for B2B and B2C markets. As a result, our marketing practices must also evolve. Digital Marketing Strategies: Data, Automation, AI & Analytics is much more than marketing through digital channels.


Half of customers will switch brands if a company doesn't make an effort to personalize communications to them — 65% in B2B markets.



Over half of B2B marketing organizations say that lead generation is their #1 challenge.



Nearly three-quarters of CEOs surveyed by IBM predict that AI will play a key role in their company's future.


In this online program, business leaders, managers, and marketing professionals will learn how modern marketing is powered by data, scaled by automation, and optimized by analytics.
