Why Read This Report

Advertising technology (adtech) and marketing technology (martech) convergence is a popular topic among marketers, vendors, and investors, but it is rarely explored beyond high-level chatter and token product expansions.

This report will help B2C marketers, who have everything to gain from adtech and martech convergence, understand the path of the marketing technology landscape so they can proactively manage the process and build effective tech stack road maps.
