CARY, NC  (14 dec. 2012)  – A new breed of CMOs are embracing big analytics to drive marketing and business performance. This trend towards marketing analytics is driving new sales of SAS® Customer Intelligence solutions worldwide.

(Argentina); Ann Taylor (US); BioGen (US); B&N Bank (Russia); Blue Cross and Blue Shield of North Carolina (US); Grameen Phone (India); Isbank (Turkey); ITV (UK); Medtronic (US); ORBIS Inc.

CMOs are investing in integrated marketing management solutions with advanced, real-time analytics. These power consistent, personalized customer experiences via traditional and digital channels.

"There is a clarion call for a more technologically savvy CMO today," said Wilson Raj, Global Director of Customer Intelligence at SAS. "More organizations are realizing that modern marketing is a data-driven discipline. CMOs are poised to not only drive great marketing but drive broader business changes and enhance alignment across the C-suite."

A global EIU study, sponsored by business analytics vendor SAS, found that one of the catalysts for change is technology. Eight out of the twelve areas CMOs identified for marketing investment revolve around technology such as customer analytics, CRM, social media, marketing automation, collaboration and optimization tools.

To this end, CMOs have reason to be confident in SAS. Just this year SAS was rated a leader in:
