Digital marketing transformation is about fully digitalising marketing – from people, processes and tools to go-to-market and customer experience
But while the urgency for transformation has never been greater, most marketers are still at an early stage in their journey.
Global marketing agency Stein IAS has undertaken the first large-scale quantitative study of 450 senior marketers across sectors and geographies to level set how B2B brands are undertaking their transformation journeys.
