  • Now, I’m not saying that everyone in the marketing department has to be a technologist.
  • Speaking of contention… let’s talk about the relationship between marketing and IT for a moment. It sometimes feels like this. But having worked on both sides of the divide, I can say that there’s a very logical reason for this tug-of-war. Marketing and IT have different goals and incentives.
