Summary

With the increased focus on insights-driven marketing, few firms have the budgets, technology capabilities, or analytical skills to advance their analytics agendas internally, and they frequently turn to extended analytics ecosystems for guidance. Firms must navigate a complex vendor marketplace of analytics technology, software, and service providers.

It outlines categories of customer analytics vendors and breaks down the capabilities of the players in this ecosystem. In this updated report, we revised vendor examples to reflect acquisitions and market shifts.
