About the talk
Many marketers find the MarTech landscape like a maze, confusing, and overly complicated. Technology is fast evolving and businesses are investing continuously in deploying, training and using the latest MarTech platforms so that they don’t feel left behind. This technology overdose has meant that marketers are spending more time learning tools and platforms than focusing on their core goals – attracting and retaining customers. In this session, Aditya Dhruva, CEO of Factoreal, will discuss how it makes sense to take a step back and "Keep Things Simple".
