But what is surprising—shocking, in fact—is how vital first- and third-party information is for creative and execution strategies today. Case in point: 70% of senior marketing executives from brands, agencies and related industry segments say data-driven marketing is a core element of a majority of their campaigns, according to a new Oracle-Forbes Insights survey.

Migrating to a new marketing automation platform (MAP) is like moving into a new house. You have to itemize everything that’s moving with you, pack up all your data, and say goodbye to the way it was before. Forever. And it doesn’t end after you’ve shifted - you’re going to have to spend some time living out of boxes, gradually unpacking, and realizing you’d like to organize things a little differently as you go.

Two of the biggest players in data driven decision making are website analytics platforms and customer relationship management systems.

Lastly, without communication between these two essential platforms, a complete understanding of your customers, from lead to longtime client, may never be possible.
