Adverity Can Deliver 368% 3-year ROI According to an Independent Study

Adverity | February 17, 2022

ROI
On February 15, Adverity announced the findings of a new study it commissioned Forrester Consulting to conduct. It is called the Total Economic Impact (TEI) study. This study quantifies the average potential return on investment (ROI) for companies using Adverity’s end-to-end platform at 368% over a three-year period. It reveals the potential impact for companies using Adverity to help enhance the way they make insights-driven marketing decisions.

Forrester Consulting had access to a tenured Adverity customer project. It conducted interviews with customer decision-makers and examination of costs, flexibility, risks, and benefits using the TEI methodology. This customer is a global manufacturer of consumer electrical and works across a variety of brands, operates at multiple locations, and runs thousands of marketing campaigns across all their global brands annually. The global marketing performance team had limited oversight of the marketing campaign performance prior to using Adverity’s platform.

The TEI study presents the potential financial impact of Adverity’s platform on a business’s marketing operations. Apart from the 368% ROI, the study also lists other benefits of the platform:

  • Efficiency in data management and operations, freeing up 80% of employees' time for a projected overall savings of $564,000 over three years
  • Timely insights on performance, allowing for optimization of marketing activities, the flexibility to optimize campaigns allowed this organization to save and reallocate an estimated $2.9 million
  • Time savings on marketing analytics activities, company estimated that having access to automated reports could cut down about 75% of their time spent on these activities which amounted to a time savings of $1.8 million over three years

Companies are spending millions of dollars on advertising and yet still can feel like they are operating in the dark when it comes to showing how and why marketing budget is being spent. Combine that with competing priorities for budget and it can be dangerously easy for internal stakeholders to lose confidence in marketing. We understand how critical it is to have the right tools to make data-backed marketing decisions and prove the return on investment for digital campaigns."

Harriet Durnford-Smith, CMO at Adverity

The Head of Marketing Insights and Performance at the organization analyzed for the study talked about the amount of time their team spent on data integration, mapping and cleansing prior to working with Adverity. Data wrangling wasn't the only challenge as evidenced by the notable insights shared in the study:
  • "We were doing marketing in the dark. We had spreadsheet-based reporting, which is like looking in the rear mirror at what happened last month, but we were not able to look forward and steer."
  • "For the first time ever, we have the ability to calculate return on investment or ad spend."
  • "Instead of looking at their own silo, we now urge everyone in marketing and partly in sales, to look at the performance end-to-end so they can see the impact of their investments."

The TEI study also uncovered extensive qualitative benefits of Adverity like improved collaboration through data democratization, job satisfaction, employee retention and transformation into a data-driven organization. Adverity automates marketing data reporting, decision making and analyzing and produces significant savings. It creates real-time optimizations for omnichannel digital marketing campaigns.

XONA Bolsters Partner Program and Names Roneeta Lal Head of Channel Sales to Accelerate Adoption of Secure Remote Access Platform

XONA | August 01, 2022

XONA, the frictionless user access platform purpose-built for critical infrastructure, today announced that it named Roneeta Lal as head of channel sales while expanding features of its partner program and adding its first internationally-based partner, Pago Networks. As threats to critical infrastructure increase worldwide, Lal will help expand XONA’s global footprint by empowering partners to serve customers across industries that have a growing need for secure user access to their operational technology (OT). Through existing relationships with partners including GE and Baker Hughes, XONA’s solution is already deployed in more than 25 countries worldwide. As a managed security services provider (MSSP) and value-added reseller (VAR), South Korea-based Pago is integrating XONA’s solution into its DeepACT managed detection and response (MDR) service and selling the XONA solution separately to its customer base. To help partners like Pago accelerate sales and drive revenue, XONA is also adding new features to its partner program including streamlined deal registration, on-demand training for channel partners, enhanced channel marketing programs and a cloud-based demo platform that makes it easier for partners to showcase XONA’s technology to potential customers. “I’ve spent more than 20 years enabling partners of some of the world’s largest technology companies to achieve the important work of securing enterprise networks and data – but XONA’s technology is different,” said Roneeta Lal, Director, Global Partners, XONA. “I’ve spent more than 20 years enabling partners of some of the world’s largest technology companies to achieve the important work of securing enterprise networks and data – but XONA’s technology is different,” said Roneeta Lal, Director, Global Partners, XONA. “Enterprise security is extremely important, but there usually aren’t lives at risk in the event of a breach, which is a strong possibility if a power plant, water treatment facility, pipeline or other critical infrastructure is compromised. I’m really energized by the solution XONA is bringing to market because of the difference it can make in these environments, and I know it’s an offering that will be a unique value-add to our channel partners.” Lal joins XONA from Tanium where she served as partner development director for more than two years. Prior to Tanium, she held channel sales roles at organizations including Illumio, Okta, Splunk, NetApp and Symantec. “Organizations that operate critical infrastructure – from the government to the private sector – have an immense responsibility to protect themselves from the growing threat of cyberattacks. And with global tensions rising, that threat continues to expand within our region and beyond,” said Paul Kwon, CEO, Pago Networks. “Being able to remotely access critical infrastructure has become a necessity for many companies, but creating that access elevates risk exposure while adding massive complexity and cost. XONA provides a unique, elegant and secure solution that solves these challenges, which is why we’re happy to offer it to our customers and will be using it ourselves as well.” Technology agnostic and configured in minutes, XONA’s proprietary protocol isolation and zero-trust architecture immediately eliminates common attack vectors, while giving authorized users seamless and secure control of operational technology from any location or device.
