MarTech 2023 Survey Insights: Shifting Influence, Replacement Trends, and the Rising Role of Marketers

As Seen On

Key Findings: Shifting Advocacy and Influence

The survey ratifies a transformative shift in the sphere of influence advocating for MarTech replacements. Unlike prior years, when executive management had prompted changes, the current schema reflects an evident change in leadership structures. Yielding to their hands-on experience and in-depth knowledge of the technology’s potentials and pitfalls, marketers and marketing technologists have emerged as the guiding voices in the MarTech landscape. This year, these specialists, more in tune with the intricacies of the MarTech world, have been spearheading the conversation and recommending the necessary shifts.

Moreover, the survey demonstrates a startling revelation—marketing professionals, encompassing marketing managers, marketers, and marketing operations professionals, have amounted to an impressive 62% of voices leading the replacements. This significant figure reiterates the increasing power marketers command in today’s technologically-driven marketing environment.

Surprisingly, the IT domain, traditionally revered as the technological vanguard, is found to have a relatively minimal influence on the course of replacements in MarTech tools. The survey results illuminate the decreasing input of IT professionals in decisions, thus suggesting a progressive evolution in decision-making dynamics.

Evolving Landscape and Future Implications

Placing these findings into context, the growth and complexity of the MarTech realm cannot be overstated. The sheer vastness of options available today and the speed at which the technological world is advancing necessitates granular, specialist knowledge, which increasingly lies outside the purview of the executive management’s capabilities.

So, what could this shifting influence imply for the future of MarTech? It possibly indicates a growing trend wherein marketers and marketing technologists, with their hands firmly on the pulse of the latest technologies, may find themselves at the helm. Their expertise allows them to pinpoint the strengths and weaknesses of various MarTech solutions and effectively drive their organizations towards decisions that generate maximum ROI can be expected to retain this predominant position.

Up until working with Casey, we had only had poor to mediocre experiences outsourcing work to agencies. Casey & the team at CJ&CO are the exception to the rule.

Communication was beyond great, his understanding of our vision was phenomenal, and instead of needing babysitting like the other agencies we worked with, he was not only completely dependable but also gave us sound suggestions on how to get better results, at the risk of us not needing him for the initial job we requested (absolute gem).

This has truly been the first time we worked with someone outside of our business that quickly grasped our vision, and that I could completely forget about and would still deliver above expectations.

I honestly can't wait to work in many more projects together!
