Next week at IBM Amplify, we’ll be bringing together leading marketing experts from across industries, sharing tons of strategies to help marketers enhance their efforts, and announcing key updates to our IBM Marketing Solutions portfolio.
At the same time, we’ll celebrate recent achievements — among them being named a leader in Gartner’s Multichannel Campaign Management Magic Quadrant for the sixth straight year!
We believe this placement reflects not only our rich history in helping marketers solve some of their most complicated challenges, but also our ability to continue to innovate and stay ahead in a rapidly changing marketing landscape.

Given the wide range of priorities and pain points marketers of different sizes and industries are challenged with, IBM’s ability to deliver a broad and deep solution via multiple deployment models is extremely important. For example, we’re working with the Georgia Aquarium on improving their email marketing campaigns, whereas with Mobily we helped them launch a personalization campaign, and with Banorte we crafted an omnichannel marketing plan.
Last year we announced IBM Journey Designer, a virtual whiteboard allowing marketers from multiple teams within an organization to collaborate on designing a customer's journey across their own organizational silos, across channels, and across the technologies that will execute the strategy. You can sign up for a trial and experience it for yourself today. We’re already seeing our clients have great success with this offering and will continue to build additional features and stronger integration with IBM Marketing Cloud.

We were also able to share with Gartner an impressive roadmap, including our journey analytics capabilities, a new IBM Campaign API framework, and additions to existing real-time personalization capabilities. We’re excited to delve deeper into these upcoming enhancements and have even more announcements in store during IBM Amplify. Whether you’re interested in email marketing, mobile customer engagement, real-time personalization, customer journey mapping or any other aspect of your marketing strategy, we have updates and enhancements across the board that will help all marketers better strategize and execute in the years ahead, so stay tuned!
Helping our customers be successful is our most important goal, and we’re pleased to offer a wide range of functionality to make this possible, which was noted by references for this report. We’ll continue putting our clients first to help them deliver superior experiences to their constituents. Here’s a small sampling of the many clients we are partnering with today:
