The Questions

Here's a look at the questions we will be asking:

  1. Start by defining MA and WEM -- what in your mind is the core purpose of each?
  2. MAP and WEM overlap in a number of ways (landing pages, forms, activity tracking, a quest for relevancy, visitor profiles, CRM integration and of course, data). What are the opportunities and challenges for WEM vendors to integrate with MA to improve WEM?
  3. Thinking in terms of integration, do efforts like WEMI hold promise for better interoperability, integration and data sharing between WEM and MAP platforms going forwards? Will there be other standardization efforts for integrating/sharing "context"?
  4. Where do you see the future of WEM heading, in terms of digital marketing platforms?

So get your Google+ up and running and take a little time to talk the future of Web Experience and Marketing Automation with our great group panelists. We look forward to seeing you there.
