  • How to Select the Right Technology to Grow Your Business When selecting new technology to support B2B marketing efforts, too often features and capabilities all look and feel the same. It takes a strategic approach to evaluate various technical tools. And if it sounds like a technology vendor telling you how to select the right technology is like the fox guarding the henhouse, in this case you’d be wrong. Because if you select a vendor that can’t meet your needs, the vendor won’t be any happier than you are. This session will provide you with a roadmap for identifying your true needs and how to match them up with the right technology at the right price. Items covered will include: Why it’s important to put the tool selection into a  broader context The importance of considering strategy, process and people in addition to the technology Ensuring that the right technology is easy to use , flexible to match your processes and sophisticated enough to match future growth strategies Speaker: Will Schnabel Vice President and General Manager, International Markets, Silverpop
