Demandbase, the B2B go-to-market leader, today announced it has been identified as a Representative Vendor in the 2021 Gartner Market Guide for Revenue Data Solutions.[1] According to this report “revenue data solutions provide actionable context about customers and prospects, making planning, acceleration and engagement activities more effective.” As per this report, the six key factors that differentiate most vendors are data sources, intent data, predictive analytics, customization, integration and privacy. “We’re really honored to be identified by Gartner in this Market Guide report,” said Jon Miller, chief marketing and product officer at Demandbase. “We believe that the value of revenue data solutions in the B2B world has become abundantly clear, and Demandbase is one of the few vendors that delivers extensive breadth and depth in both data and functionality. We’re constantly working toward expanding all of this even more and continuing to give customers the most premium solution available on the market.” According to this report: One of the strategic planning assumptions is “by 2024, early adoption of RDS will propel progressive B2B organizations to achieve growth at three times that of those who delay.” The adoption of revenue operations will become more common. Intent data and other behavioral components will increase in value. Revenue data solutions (RDS) have progressed considerably in the last few years, moving from commoditized contact/company data enrichment and cleanup into predictive and multi-sourced solutions for actionable customer context across commercial silos. *Gartner, “Market Guide for Revenue Data Solutions,” Tom Cosgrove, Jeffrey Cohen, September 29, 2021.

MarketingOS helps demand generation and ABM teams target and convert leads into buyers through insight-driven orchestration and personalized engagement across multiple channels, including display and social advertising, email, SMS, and more. MarketingOS also turns websites into digital storefronts—through enriched forms, unique visitor tracking, and human-first chat experiences—to help improve on-site conversion and to tighten the relationship with sales. “Our comprehensive B2B database is the key differentiator that sets MarketingOS apart from other ABM solutions,” said ZoomInfo Founder and CEO Henry Schuck. “Our comprehensive B2B database is the key differentiator that sets MarketingOS apart from other ABM solutions,” said ZoomInfo Founder and CEO Henry Schuck. “ZoomInfo’s unique data science algorithms allow marketers to connect with the right prospects at precisely the right time. No other solution on the market combines the power of data-driven insights and marketing-optimized workflows like ZoomInfo’s MarketingOS.” MarketingOS is one of four platforms that comprise RevOS, ZoomInfo’s modern operating system for revenue professionals, which was also unveiled today. A unified system for sales, marketing, operations, and recruiting teams, RevOS delivers the data, insights, software, and integrations needed by businesses and professionals to achieve their growth potential in a new insight-driven era of digital selling. SalesOS, OperationsOS, and RecruitingOS, which are also now available to customers, complete ZoomInfo’s RevOS. This system empowers businesses to consistently engage with the right people at the right companies at the right time with relevant messages. RevOS features a unified login and app administration experience, with all apps and tools launched and managed from a single dashboard to give users at-a-glance information regarding their campaigns. Users can switch between applications effortlessly, allowing for seamless workflows between RevOS applications. Marketers typically fail because the data in most ABM platforms is both inaccurate and incomplete. Current ABM solutions are designed to leverage companies’ own first-party data, which exists in their customer relationship management or marketing automation systems. Without quality data, marketers pour advertising dollars at the wrong prospects and companies, and, as a result, deliver fruitless leads to sales and waste time and resources. With ZoomInfo’s best-in-class data and intelligence at its foundation, MarketingOS enables marketers to effectively reach target accounts and drive qualified leads for sales. Using MarketingOS, marketers can run display and social advertising campaigns through ZoomInfo’s proprietary demand-side platform and social integrations to target specific professionals, job titles, levels, or functions at in-market accounts exhibiting buyer intent. MarketingOS also features an in-market predictive score that ranks where prospects are in their buying journeys, informing how and when marketers should engage with prospects based on their ranking and helping them to prioritize their outbound efforts on prospects who are most likely to convert. Additionally, MarketingOS gives teams ongoing monitoring of their entire universe of prospect and customer accounts, helps them cleanse and manage their marketing database effectively, and surfaces the best audiences based on fit, intent, and engagement.
