Demandbase | April 25, 2022
Demandbase, the Smarter GTM™ company for B2B brands, today announces the results of its commissioned Total Economic Impact™(TEI) Study conducted by Forrester Consulting. The study's goal is to help enterprise organizations understand the costs, business benefits, and potential return on investment (ROI) they may realize by deploying Demandbase ABX and Advertising Clouds. With the analysis based on a $200 million, 650-employee composite organization, Forrester found that Demandbase delivered 367% ROI in three years, with a net present value (NPV) of $1.94 million, and payback in less than six months. The platform was also found to help increase revenue by close to $1 million and to enable customers to avoid the additional costs of third-party tools.
"We've seen the impact Demandbase Ones has on customers time and again," says Gabe Rogol, chief executive officer of Demandbase.
"We've seen the impact Demandbase Ones has on customers time and again," says Gabe Rogol, chief executive officer of Demandbase. "It's really valuable, though, to have a highly respected, third-party research firm like Forrester conduct an independent evaluation of this impact. Their findings confirm what we've seen to be true, which is that our customers' success in sales, marketing and overall revenue is wildly amplified by using Demandbase."
In addition to discovering ROI and revenue potential, Forrester also uncovered further benefits that organizations can experience when using Demandbase, including:
Marketing productivity gains — By leveraging Demandbase's Account Intelligence functions, ABM teams saved days determining which accounts were most likely to buy and what content would generate the most interest. As such, ABM teams increased their productivity and improved KPIs, such as a 3% improvement in the close rate for marketing sourced leads.
Sales productivity gains — After implementing Demandbase, sales development representatives (SDRs) saw immediate improvements in their metrics, doubling their productivity. One ABM specialist said her team opened 22 new opportunities in just six months.
Improved sales & marketing relationships — Interviewees noted that Demandbase drove sales and marketing alignment, with one reporting a 90% adoption rate of account executives (AEs) and SDRs using the tool.
"Historically, one of the most difficult, but necessary, parts of growing revenue is a strong relationship between sales and marketing," says Allison Metcalfe, chief revenue officer of Demandbase. "It's clear through this study that Demandbase not only improves ROI and revenue, but also gets to the heart of an organization by building a bridge between these two essential departments. This creates cohesion and ultimately empowers them to achieve an aligned, optimized go-to-market that puts customers first. This is an incredibly important part of what Demandbase delivers, and what fuels its noteworthy economic impact."

Upland Altify’s strategic account planning software was one of 19 vendors included, and only one of seven late-stage technology providers recognized in the report.
“As a leader in the account planning technology space for over 15 years, we have partnered with global enterprises such as Salesforce, Lumen, UnitedHealth Group, and many others to enable the skillset, mindset, and toolset for account-based selling in their organizations,” said Patrick Morrissey, SVP and GM at Upland.

The vendors were evaluated and differentiated based on the following three weighted criteria - top ranked competitors, company tenure, and full-time employees. From there, Forrester scored vendors against all criteria using progressive point values across maturity stages and divided them into three final groups of Late-Stage, Growth-Stage, and Early-Stage vendors.

Contentgine | April 23, 2022
Contentgine®, the world leader in content-based marketing, today released its latest "Top 5 in 15" video episode, featuring the most popular software- defined wide area networking (SD-WAN) content analyzed by its Content Indication Platform (CIP). Exploring its vast business-to-business (B2B) library, syndicated by its Perpetual Engine®, Contentgine's CIP examined content consumption across more than 600 SD-WAN assets to determine the category leaders.
"We are seeing a lot of interest from buyers in learning more about SD-WAN deployments," said Series Host Robert Rose, best-selling author and chief strategy officer for the Content Marketing Institute.
"We are seeing a lot of interest from buyers in learning more about SD-WAN deployments," said Series Host Robert Rose, best-selling author and chief strategy officer for the Content Marketing Institute. "The most popular content detailed actual customer stories indicating business buyers are trying to better understand the benefits of using software to control and manage their wide area networks at a time when technology is evolving at a rapid pace."
The Top Five companies making up this episode's best-in-content chart include:
#1 – VMware – eBook: The Modern Network: Bringing the Public Cloud Experience On-prem
#2 – Masergy – Research Study: The 2021 State of SD-WAN Study
#3 – Fortinet – Case Study: Building an Agile, Secure Network While Eliminating MPLS Spend with FortiGate Secure SD-WAN
#4 – Windstream – Case Study: From Gnarly Wipeouts to Rad Freeriding with SD-WAN
#5 –Aruba – Research Study: The State of SD-WAN, SASE and Zero Trust Security Architectures
According to Rose, the first of two key takeaways is that buyers are seeking detailed customer stories focused on the triggering points of how the decision to move to SD-WAN was made. Second, they want data found in original research that details the current adoption and the primary requirements. This, Rose says, gives customers more confidence in their decision-making especially when they can learn more about what their peer set is doing.
"We gain a lot of great insights on content-based marketing and buyer intent through our Top 5 series," said Ian Dix, chief marketing officer for Contentgine. "We believe sharing these contextual insights are helpful to the marketing community and, as part of this ongoing series, we will continue to provide strategic analysis and best practices to marketers. This episode's deep dive into the SD-WAN category yielded fresh insights for marketers striving to stand out in this growing category."
