While being the backbone of many organization’s Offices of Finance and Accounting, it is now commonly acknowledged that this overreliance on Excel spreadsheets coupled with the lack of visibility associated with its use represents a very real risk. With automation available to improve both process efficiency and effectiveness, the challenge many companies face isn’t why they should transform their process but how.
The key to overcoming this challenge is creating a strong business case for investment. One that not only sets out the objectives of the project but is also underpinned by a robust financial analysis, in the form of qualitative and quantitative ROI, and a thorough understanding of risk.

There is a great misconception that the purpose of attribution modelling is to arrive at a singular, concrete truth; however, the reality is much more nuanced. Attribution modeling is actually an ongoing process of improving how we measure marketing’s impact in order to improve our decision making over time.
There are a number of attribution principles that still confuse marketers:
• Why is attribution a process and not an end state?
• Why is making small steps forward really better than doing nothing?
• Why does the perfect attribution model not exist?
• What makes attribution an ROI investment and not a cost center?
With the many attribution myths, challenges, and philosophies in mind, AdRoll and Econsultancy have partnered for a second year in a row to produce The State of Marketing Attribution 2017. This time around we’ve broaden our focus beyond Europe to include content that also covers North America and Asia-Pacific.
This report goes in-depth on the current adoption levels of marketing attribution, the confidence in its usage, and the effectiveness of companies’ attribution methods worldwide. You will gain a better grasp on the required skills to succeed at attribution.

It’s no secret that Account Based Marketing (ABM) has emerged as one of the most buzzed about trends within the B2B marketing world. As ABM evolves from a new, cutting edge tactic into a well known, trusted strategy, some B2B marketers are knee deep within their ABM journey, while others are still in the discovery process, searching for a better understanding before seeking buy-in. Among the array of questions that these marketers have, many
are wondering: just how essential is Account Based Marketing to my organization’s success? What challenges are my peers facing when leveraging ABM? How is ROI from ABM being measured? How much success are my peers achieving? And looking ahead, how will ABM fit in the B2B marketing landscape?
To better understand these questions, Argyle Executive Forum, in partnership with Oracle Marketing Cloud, surveyed leading B2B CMOs and marketing executives across the U.S. to better understand how they’re incorporating ABM into their marketing strategies, wha

Global executives believe the key to delivering profitable growth is a 20% increase in staff productivity, above current levels. However, employees are stretched to their limit; 80% report increased workloads and 55% say they can no longer handle the resulting levels of stress. Effective talent measurement can improve performance and productivity across the workforce by placing the right people in the right roles, and identifying and nurturing those that are most likely to succeed.
An intelligent, searchable recording fabric with 100% accuracy sounds pretty useful. But can you calculate a solid ROI to justify it?
We all know intuitively that there are substantial bottomline benefits to reducing unplanned network downtime and improving the management of corporate risk. It follows that it also pays dividends to free up highly skilled Tier 1 and Tier 2 engineers to handle resolving the most difficult and costly network issues while using less expensive personnel to handle easier ones.
But justifying a network investment on a soft, intuitive argument like this alone doesn’t usually suffice. And, depending on what industry you are in, the cost savings potential will vary. At the high end, in many financial and brokerage institutions, a minute of downtime can cost the company millions of dollars. So being able to shave even a single minute off network downtime with a pervasive monitoring tool represents an immediate recovery of the fabric investment.
An intelligent, searchable network monitoring fabric with 100% accuracy sounds pretty useful. But can you calculate a solid ROI to justify it? We all know intuitively that there are substantial bottomline benefits to reducing unplanned network downtime and improving the management of corporate risk. It follows that it also pays dividends to free up highly skilled Tier 1 and Tier2 engineers to resolve the most difficult and costly network issues. That way, you can use less expensive personnel to handle the more common, numerous, and easily resolvable problems.
But justifying a network investment using soft, intuitive arguments like these alone often doesn’t suffice in an economic climate where budgets are closely guarded and business cases for procurements are mandatory. And depending on what industry you are in, the cost savings potential and payback will vary.
