No matter what technology businesses utilize for email and cross-channel marketing programs, Marketing needs to understand that I.T. is going to be (and has to be) involved. Marketers need I.T. for the initial integration, for any maintenance or new data that needs to be exposed, troubleshooting, setting up automations, etc. In some cases, depending on the solutions being utilized, especially for triggered messages, I.T. owns the templates and sending mechanisms themselves. They also need to be aware of traffic and capacity.
In many organizations, I.T. and Marketing have a contentious relationship. Many marketing teams try to find ways to avoid I.T. as much as possible. But in today's always-on world, enterprise organizations need these two teams to work together and align priorities to ensure cross-channel success.
In this webinar, we'll discuss:
- The common causes of friction between Marketing and I.T. when it comes to email marketing
- Why Marketing needs I.T. - now, more than ever
- Ideas for alignment
