Heathrow MarTech Capabilities
Acxiom, the customer intelligence company whose data-driven solutions create business growth by enabling better customer experiences, today announced that Acxiom is now part of the expanded Marketing Cloud Customer Data Platform ecosystem and has created a dedicated, global Salesforce practice.

The practice will provide high-performing marketing solutions to the enterprise, bringing Acxiom’s data management, digital campaign management, and identity capabilities to the Salesforce technology stack. With Acxiom’s heritage in privacy-compliant data services and expertise in platform services, there has never been a better time for Acxiom to collaborate with Salesforce and truly help clients extract the maximum value from their technology.

Acxiom has a longstanding relationship with Heathrow airport, having designed, built, integrated, and currently operating a large proportion of their marketing technology stack. Heathrow’s vision is to give passengers the best airport service in the world. Marketing technology plays a key role in delivering the best passenger experience across both physical and digital environments.

“Salesforce Marketing Cloud, a long-established product, is a technology leader in Gartner’s CRM Customer Engagement suite. Acxiom’s expertise in bringing business value and performance to marketing technology is now being deployed and scaled with Salesforce. We’re thrilled to be expanding our relationship with Heathrow and look forward to supporting their transformation to deliver on today’s customer needs,” said David Skinner, Chief Strategy Officer at Acxiom.

Heathrow were utilizing a CRM/Marketing Cloud from a major competitor and wanted to create a new MarTech stack that could help to improve customer satisfaction, acquisition of customers to the CRM database, and revenue growth for Heathrow and its retailers. Heathrow were looking for ways to capture rich customer data insights, shopping habits, and travel interests whilst reducing the number of moving parts within their technology stack, in line with Heathrow’s Digital Transformation strategy.

"Salesforce is thrilled Acxiom is joining the expansion of the Marketing Cloud Customer Data Platform ecosystem,” said Woodson Martin, EVP and GM of AppExchange. “A data-first approach and a single-source-of-truth has never been more important for brands to deliver on customer expectations in today’s digital world. We can’t wait to see how Acxiom will help customers to achieve success in an increasingly competitive environment and accelerate their digital transformation journeys.”

Heathrow invited Acxiom to support with identifying the best technical solutions that could enable the successful delivery of Heathrow’s future marketing objectives. Acxiom consulted with Heathrow to adopt new data sources, and to leverage their existing Digital Transformation Strategy and Platform technology approach. In July 2021, following a capability assessment of market leading technologies in June 2021, Acxiom consultancy services and Heathrow brought in Salesforce Marketing Cloud (SFMC) and Salesforce Customer Data Platform (CDP) technologies to help unlock further benefits from the Salesforce e-commerce and Salesforce Service Cloud products already in place. This approach has enabled Heathrow to design a framework to drive internal change, help gain greater value from their CRM marketing assets, and develop more informed decisions (automated or human).

“We’re excited about enhancing and optimizing our MarTech stack, developing our technology to enable and accelerate the maturity of our CRM marketing strategy. Without the right data, personalization is only an ambition. Working with Acxiom and Salesforce, Heathrow now has greater control of our data, which can be used to improve business processes and deliver personalized passenger experiences,” said Meenal Varsani, Head of Marketing & Customer Engagement, Heathrow

Marketers Gain New Content Performance Insights, More Precise First-party Intent Signals with Contentgine’s Content Indication Platform 2.0

Contentgine | August 03, 2022

New platform experiences make content consumption analysis smarter and simpler for better sales results RENO, Nev., August 2, 2022 — Contentgine®, the world leader in content-based marketing, today launched new artificial intelligence (AI) and machine learning capabilities for its Content Indication Platform® (CIP) to uncover greater content consumption insights more readily for B2B marketers. The online SaaS platform enables marketing and sales professionals to use 100% first-party content consumption metrics to prioritize and expand target account lists and make more meaningful connections with sales prospects. “Customers rely on us for smarter and unique content-based insights that lead to better sales results,” said Tim Ribich, vice president of Product Management for Contentgine. “This next iteration of CIP continues to raise the bar to a higher standard of purchasing intent, helping organizations achieve a greater return on investment for their demand generation and account-based marketing strategies to win meetings and close new business.” The new CIP enhancements help marketers more sharply focus on account activity and purchasing intent while capturing data to inform the bigger picture around trending business opportunities. Contentgine customers can now view a new signal location map to geographically pinpoint where a specific account’s content engagement activity is most prominent, no matter where users are located. In addition, a new user interface helps filter account and content insights to provide additional views of data sets organized by industry, company size, revenue, HQ location, and intent score. As a result, marketers can simply view the smarter data and/or plug it into their marketing automation or ABM platform to direct the strongest sales efforts. The platform also can now extract meaningful words and phrases across Contentree, the world’s largest B2B library, then aggregate the results by frequency and engagement to provide richer intel for clients. This includes pain points and buying considerations for in-market accounts that can be used to personalize outreach and tailor messaging to the specific needs of an account. It also provides insight into common messaging from high-performance assets within a category that can inform current and future content marketing strategies to drive engagement. Unlike other available solutions, CIP is the only platform of its kind that delivers first-party data coupled with precise purchasing intent signaled by the propensity of individuals researching specific solutions across various vendors. Through assorted data slices, Contentgine clients can identify an account’s purchasing committee, where they are located, their specific inquiry, and the amount of engagement with their own content and competitive content assets. CIP uses AI and machine learning to deliver advanced market intelligence by analyzing 100 million quarterly engagements with Contentree’s more than 500,000 case studies, white papers, and eBooks. The platform identifies first-party content consumption patterns of tens of millions of professionals across over 500 specific product categories to establish smarter target account lists, higher-performing content, and better prospect engagement. By capturing complete contact, company, and content consumption visibility, CIP’s leading intelligence compares performance within product categories to give organizations sharper insights into how their content performs versus competitors. To demonstrate how CIP can determine trending activity and how content rises to the top of each category, the company has produced an ongoing video series, hosted by Robert Rose, chief strategy advisor for the Content Marketing Institute. The “Top 5 in 15” video episodes focus on popular topics such as artificial intelligence (AI), software-defined wide area networking (SD-WAN), customer relationship management (CRM), and data analytics. In addition, the Contentgine Top 5 resource center features content-based marketing insights about these topics and more including cloud infrastructure monitoring, database solutions, and AP automation. About Contentgine Contentgine is a leader in content-based marketing, content syndication, intent marketing, and demand generation. The company is witnessing explosive growth by utilizing a unique way of offering business solution information to business professionals. Its unique Perpetual Engine syndicates content from Contentree, the world’s largest business-to-business (B2B) library, to engage with the right audience at the right time. The industry’s first Content Indication Platform (CIP) analyzes content consumption and intent to produce the most precise, first-person intent data for advanced, actionable insights.

Savvy Brazilian Firms Embrace Digital Marketing Innovations

ISG | September 07, 2022

Digital marketing has grown from a niche category to the prevailing form of marketing in Brazil, benefiting enterprises in several ways, according to a new research report published today by Information Services Group (ISG) (Nasdaq: III), a leading global technology research and advisory firm. The 2022 ISG Provider Lens™ MarTech Service Providers report for Brazil finds the country’s enterprises have discovered digital marketing technologies provide valuable data, higher efficiency and targeted messaging that can improve communication, brand-building, customer relationships and business strategies. “Every marketing organization needs to harness the power of the ecosystem of MarTech possibilities to direct their core advertising and demand-generation initiatives,” said Paul Gottsegen, partner and president, ISG Research and Client Experience. “With so many potential options, it’s crucial to have an independent analysis of how this ecosystem stacks up across multiple dimensions.” Enterprises in Brazil are increasingly aware of the value of data in digital marketing, the report says. Digital marketing allows for a multidirectional exchange of data, bringing advertisers information about consumers they can use to develop better products, improve service and sales channels and find new market segments. The use of customer data platforms (CDP), a data management system, has soared in Brazil and become essential to developing targeted marketing campaigns, ISG says. Now, Brazilian companies in the most competitive industries are looking for providers that can go beyond CDP, crafting customized models to generate unique insights about customers. Brazil is now the third-largest country in the world in the use of social networking, so Brazilian enterprises are increasingly turning to social-media influencers to reach consumers, the report says. Some influencers in Brazil have bigger audiences than major offline media outlets. “Companies in Brazil are recognizing that influencer marketing can be more effective than traditional approaches,” said Jan Erik Aase, partner and global leader, ISG Provider Lens Research. “Companies in Brazil are recognizing that influencer marketing can be more effective than traditional approaches,” said Jan Erik Aase, partner and global leader, ISG Provider Lens Research. “They want to work with providers that have deep experience in this area and a focus on measurable results." Brazilian marketing technology providers are also exploring content creation for the metaverse, though they recognize there are still hurdles, such as hardware requirements, ISG says. The report also covers changes in advertising agency business models, growing use of content marketing, logistical challenges for Brazilian e-commerce and other trends. The 2022 ISG Provider Lens™ MarTech Service Providers report for Brazil evaluates the capabilities of 39 providers across six quadrants: Strategic MarTech Services, Digital Presence and Digital Ads, Digital Experience and Content, Social and Relationship, Digital Commerce Optimization, and Analytics and Intelligence. The report names Accenture Song as a Leader in all six quadrants. It names Raccoon and Stefanini Haus as Leaders in five quadrants each. Blinks Essence, Brivia and Cadastra are named as Leaders in three quadrants each, and Fbiz, Jussi, Keyrus and Mirum are named as Leaders in two quadrants each. CoreBiz, DP6, Driven.CX, Infracommerce, Mutato, Nação Digital, Rock Content, Soko and Vitrio are named as Leaders in one quadrant each. In addition, Vitrio is named as a Rising Star — a company with a “promising portfolio” and “high future potential” by ISG’s definition — in three quadrants. Brivia, Jussi and Keyrus are named as Rising Stars in one quadrant each. Customized versions of the report are available from Brivia and Cadastra.
