With the rapid adoption of SaaS and cloud technologies, marketing practitioners are increasingly being asked to inform procurement processes. The market is cluttered, but some of the best sources of insights come from your peers and the ability to connect with your peers through managed customer communities. In many cases, these insights can lead to a “try before you buy” opportunity that would otherwise never have been made available. The session will empower marketing leaders to tap the knowledge of front-line employees and peers to make smart procurement decisions.

“It's a privilege to participate in this esteemed panel at Oracle OpenWorld,” said Russell Rothstein, Co-Founder and CEO of IT Central Station. “The way enterprise technology vendors market and sell their products is changing rapidly, and it’s critical for marketing professionals to stay ahead of the game.”
