The Consumerization of B2B Marketing

This presentation, delivered by Jacques Pavlenyi of IBM, was part of "The Consumerization of B2B Marketing" event held May 21, 2015 in La Jolla, organized and hosted by SoCal BMA.

The forces that are buffeting entire industries are buffeting the practice of marketing as well. The large influx of Millennial workers weaned on social media, smartphones and tablets powered by cloud delivered apps is having a profound effect on B2B purchase behaviors. Think of it not just as the consumerization of IT (as Gartner research calls it) but also the consumerization of B2B marketing.

Jacques Pavlenyi lead the discussion of these forces, and how:

- information consumption patterns of decision makers are shifting.

- non- traditional influencers wield more power

- the traditional funnel is being upended and compressed by the cloud, from Discover-Learn-Solve-Compare-Try-Buy-Adopt to simply Try-Learn-Upgrade.

- the application of Marketing technologies and analytics can make actionable sense of that seething mass of data.
