About the talk
At this stage of the martech revolution, most companies have at least some kind of martech presence - even if it’s just marketing operations using martech to solve a few specific challenges. That said, by siloing martech, you’re really doing yourself a disservice. Even if your core marketing operations team revolves around martech, everybody else still has to wait on them to approve their martech requests. In this game-changing session, Scott Brinker, VP of Platform Engagement at HubSpot is going to teach you how to mature your martech investment into what he calls the “absorbed” stage - so your entire organization doesn’t have to wait for approval or sit in a queue, but is free to self-service their own martech needs, streamlining the entire process and supercharging your success.
Afternoon everyone got some good after lunch nap time energy OK, 00:00 great, so I figured we could do is we could maybe walk through every one of the 7000 logos and discuss them in detail. 00:05 Alright, just kidding. 00:14 So yeah, 00:14 I'm a martech, nerd martech enthusiast. 00:16 The VP platform ecosystem at HubSpot, 00:18 helping HubSpot integrate with more of them are tech ecosystem. 00:20 I've been writing. 00:24
The Chief Martech blog for about 12 years and the program chair of the Martech Conference. 00:24 Unfortunately, I'm also the fellow behind. 00:31 This eyesore and so every time I get on stage and I feel the need to profusely apologize for inflicting this APA knew it really started out as a very 00:33 had. 00:43 I know why was going to get into I would not have gone down this road but it started as a pretty simple thing of like Hey, 00:43 Seomoz, you use a lot of Technology. 00:51
Don't you think it might be helpful to start to have someone on the marketing team who could really take responsibility for that. 00:54 And so in 2011. 01:02 That was mapping out around 150 different technologies, 01:02 which at the time seemed enormous like minds blown like Oh my God, 01:06 150 and then. 01:11 Yes, the crazy tale of Martech. 01:11 Exponential explosion over the years, 01:14 this year. 01:16 Just for the ones, we charted and we didn't get all of them. 01:16
I know we didn't get all of them because I keep getting emails from all the people we somehow missed. 01:21 And if there's any there lurking around here, 01:28 I'll take the back exit out. 01:32 Over 7000 my goodness, so if you want a little sneak preview. 01:36 We're going to start work on the 2020 version and the official number is going to be somewhere between a crap ton and a really large crap done. 01:40 We could talk about consolidation. 01:50
