So why is a MarTech stack so critical to success? At its base, a strategic MarTech stack is how you can efficiently and effectively stay connected to your buyers. And that is critical when you consider that businesses are competing on customer experience. In fact, a Harvard Business Review study, “Designing a Marketing Organization for the Digital Age,” described marketing technology as essential to creating agile and fluid structures and driving customer engagement. Teams that use marketing technology understand that by doing so, they can gain better insights into the unique relationships and connections with their customers and prospects.

The pressure is mounting and employers are feeling the pinch. As U.S. health care costs continue their seemingly inexorable rise, businesses are looking for ways to wrest greater value from their health care spend.

According to a September 2015 global survey of 251 respondents conducted by Harvard Business Review Analytic Services, 78 percent of organizations agree or strongly agree that within two years the use of externally generated big data will be “transformational.” But there’s work to be done, since only 21 percent of respondents strongly agree that external data has already had a transformational effect on their firms.
