MARTECH ISN’T MEANT TO REPLACE MARKETING

Article | March 5, 2020

The advent of different types of technology has changed how businesses use marketing and the ways that consumers are engaging with businesses and their marketing. The development of new marketing capabilities and new information technology capacity intersect in MarTech, bringing together the potential of both areas to reveal new possibilities. But, MarTech is meant to work with marketing not to replace it. Recent developments have made MarTech possible.
