GIMS IT 2017

Automation, digital transformation, cloud and SaaS are causing business disruption. Global economic headwinds are driving consolidation and retrenchment. Technology marketers are rising to the challenge of crafting a response to these forces and emerging as key drivers of business impact. Better, creative application of technology is resulting in newer and better ways of doing business and transforming the customer experience. A new type of executive is rising at the core of this transformation – the efficient marketer, someone who harnesses technology and business knowledge to improve the business impact of marketing.

ITSMA is pleased to sponsor and participate in the Great Indian IT Marketing Summit & Awards 2017 alongside a dynamic group of partners and marketing executives. As part of a deep dive into the theme of “the efficient marketer,” ITSMA’s Rob Leavitt will lead two highly interactive sessions.


Account-Based Marketing 2.0: An Integrated Approach to Growth and Innovation

Account-Based Marketing (ABM) is pervasive in B2B marketing today because people know that ABM can deliver higher ROI than any other marketing initiative. The recent evolution of ABM (“ABM 2.0”), including the development of three distinct approaches, also means that marketers can now apply ABM principles far beyond their most strategic accounts.

This interactive workshop will dive into the latest ITSMA research, experience, and case studies to help participants understand how to develop an integrated approach to ABM across multiple tiers of accounts. Workshop topics include:

  • Understanding the three types of ABM – Strategic ABM, ABM Lite, and Programmatic ABM
  • Defining and aligning ABM strategy
  • Strengthening sales engagement
  • Using technology
  • Managing ABM programs
  • Measuring ABM impact
