12:40 - 13:25 HACKING MARKETING: Applying Software-Inspired Management Concepts to Accelerate Modern Marketing

Scott Brinker, Author/Editor, Chief Marketing Technologist Blog,ChiefMartec.com
In many ways, modern marketing has more in common with the software profession than it does with classic marketing management. As surprising as that may sound, it’s the natural result of the world going digital. Marketing must move faster, adapt more quickly to market feedback, and manage an increasingly complex set of customer experience touchpoints. All of these challenges are shaped by the dynamics of software — from the growing number of technologies in our own organizations to the global forces of the Internet at large. Join Scott as he shows you how to conquer those challenges by adapting successful management frameworks from the software industry to the practice of marketing for any business in a digital world.
In this session you will learn how to:
  • Increase the tempo of marketing’s responsiveness without chaos or burnout
  • Design “continuous” marketing programs and campaigns that constantly evolve
  • Drive growth with more marketing experiments while actually reducing risk
  • Architect marketing capabilities in layers to better scale and adapt to change
  • Balance strategic focus with the ability to harness emergent opportunities

17:45 - 19:00 Properly Integrating Data & Analytics to Drive Performance and ROI in Your Marketing Technology Investment Matt Tipperreiter, Product Strategy Director,Experian Marketing Services Bill Schneider, Solutions Support Consultant,Experian Marketing Services

You can’t have a high-performing engine without clean, high-grade fuel running through the engine. Similarly, you can have a high-performing marketing technology stack without highly-accurate, comprehensive data running through the stack. Data is the fuel that drives marketing technology performance.

Join this class to understand how marketers can fully understand their customers, through linking their own CRM data that resides across data silos and enhancing this information with insights to provide a complete picture of their customers as complex consumers. By first creating this single customer view and solid data foundation, marketers can maximize their investment in marketing technology. Without taking this first critical step, all downstream performance is crippled by incomplete and inaccurate data. Alternatively, by making such an investment, marketers and advertisers can drive ROMI and push these insights throughout their internal and external ecosystems.

Simply put, without top-grade fuel, an engine will not perform at a high level. Without top grade data and insights, marketing technology stacks will not perform at a high level either. Learn how to maximize your ROI on your marketing technology by loading it with robust, accurate data that creates an actionable single view of your customers.
