Harvard Business Review publishes The Rise of the Chief Marketing Technologist

When I first started writing about the role of a chief marketing technologist in 2008, it was, at best, a niche subject. A hybrid marketing and technology executive?

On the topic of “open marketing platforms” — foundational marketing software systems that make it easy to plug in or connect with other marketing applications built by third-parties — I admit that I’m thoroughly biased. As an industry observer, I’ve staked my prognostication badge on the case for consolidated platforms and diversified ecosystems (2012), the emerging third-party era of marketing automation (2013), and open platforms as the enablers for 1,000+ marketing technology vendors as the …
