Marketing has a Strong Future Outlook

1 in 2 adults in the working population have something to do with Marketing in their roles. Acquiring customers; retaining customers or improving the customer experience. That is over 6 million people!

For 2017, Brinker’s landscape consisted of 5,381 solutions from 4,891 unique companies. This is about 40 percent growth, year-over-year, for both solutions and unique companies that have been recognised. More technologies mean more data sources, so this graphic underlined our belief that getting data integration right is a key analytics step that every marketer should be informed about. See more
