The CMO Survey Spring 2019: Continued focus on growth

The latest CMO Survey reveals that marketing leaders are embracing new marketing tactics and technologies, and are showing a growing reliance on analytics for decision making. The use of analytics reached the highest point recorded in six years. Marketing leaders are investing more in the use of artificial intelligence (AI) and expect these technologies to be implemented to a greater extent across the next three years. In addition, a majority of companies report using AI for content personalization, predictive analytics for customer insights, and targeting decisions.

The marketing function continues to take greater ownership across a wide array of growth activities and are expected to continue to do so. Leaders are increasingly confident in the changing marketing landscape and positioned for continued growth in their role.
