Paris - 04 juil. 2012: Une nouvelle étude IBM (NYSE : IBM) portant sur la pratique du marketing souligne l’importance de la collaboration entre directeurs marketing (CMO) et directeurs des systèmes d'information (CIO). 60% des marketeurs désignent le manque de coordination entre les services marketing et informatique comme la principale faiblesse de leurs stratégies destinées à atteindre leurs consommateurs. Cette collaboration apparait donc de plus en plus nécessaire pour garder le contact avec les consommateurs d’aujourd’hui via de nouveaux canaux tels que les terminaux mobiles et les réseaux sociaux.

Dans le cadre de l’étude "State of marketing 2012", IBM a interrogé plus de 350 professionnels du marketing répartis dans de nombreux secteurs et pays. 51% des marketeurs interrogés et ayant identifié leur entreprise comme très performante y déclarent entretenir de bonnes relations avec les équipes informatiques de leur société. C’est 10% de plus que dans les autres entreprises !

Dans un contexte où le marketing mobile se porte bien, cette étude démontre que les marketeurs se préparent désormais à dépasser le stade du couponing (offre de coupons de réduction ou de remboursement partiel) pour investir dans la publicité mobile et atteindre leurs clients directement sur leurs smartphones et tablettes. 34% des personnes interrogées ont ainsi déclaré avoir l'intention de diffuser des publicités mobiles dans les 12 prochains mois, soit le taux d’adoption le plus élevé pour une nouvelle tactique marketing depuis le lancement de cette étude il y a cinq ans. De manière générale, les marketeurs sont déjà 46% à travailler sur des sites Web mobiles et 45% à proposer des applications mobiles contre respectivement 40% et 44% l’an dernier.

Pour plus d’informations, l’ensemble des résultats de l’étude sont dès à présent disponibles (en anglais) via ce lien.



IBM Survey Reveals Marketers Face Tech Dilemma in Reaching the Connected Consumer

Marketers to Reach Customers Through New Mobile Device Ads; IT a Hurdle

Armonk, N.Y. - 21 Jun 2012: IBM’s (NYSE: IBM) new survey of the marketing industry finds that chief marketing officers (CMO) and chief information officers (CIO) must join forces in order to connect with today’s consumer across new channels including mobile devices and social networks. Fully 60 percent of marketers point to their lack of alignment with the company's IT department as the biggest obstacle to reaching today's consumers. 

One key new finding of the survey shows that with mobile marketing working well, marketers are now preparing to go beyond coupons and deliver mobile advertising that reaches customers on their smart phone and tablets. According to the study, 34 percent of respondents stated that in less than 12 months, they intend to deliver mobile ads, the highest rate of new marketing tactic adoption in the five-year history of the study. Overall, 46 percent of respondents are currently using mobile web sites followed by 45 percent mobile applications, up from 40 percent and 44 percent respectively since last year. 

While the mobile channel is thriving, marketers lack this same clear consensus on how to best utilize social media which will result in ongoing experimentation with these channels. For example, when looking toward the remainder of the year, 26 percent intend to launch applications on 3rd party social network sites, 24 percent plan to incorporate user-generated content into their social media efforts and 23 percent are looking to launch social media ads or share links in email and web offers. 

IBM's “State of Marketing 2012” surveyed more than 350 marketing professionals across a wide range of industries and geographies. In the study, 51 percent of respondents who identified their companies as high-performing indicated they have good relationships between marketing and IT, 10 percent higher than other companies. This figure validates the importance of the marketing and IT alliance which gives top performers greater responsibilities for the products and services, price, place and promotion (the 4Ps), and communication across the purchasing cycle. As a result, marketers from these higher performing companies are nearly three times more likely to be pro-active leaders in driving their organization's customer experience across all channels. 

“This research indicates that as new channels continue to mature and consumer habits evolve, marketing and IT have no alternative but to emerge from their traditional silos and form a strong partnership that puts the business in a position to succeed,” said Yuchun Lee, Vice President, IBM Enterprise Marketing Management Group. “CMOs and CIOs, an 'odd couple' in some respects, will be the catalysts in forging this union and enabling the types of personalized multichannel brand relationships that today’s customers demand.” 

Additional results from the survey include: 

Marketing and IT Lack Integration:

·     While 48 percent of respondents believe that improved technology infrastructure or software will enable them to do more, nearly 60 percent indicated that lack of IT alignment and integration are significant barriers to the adoption of technology. This void further reinforces the notion that CMOs and CIOs must forge stronger, more aligned relationships that put the business in a position to succeed.

Marketing and IT Lack Unified Vision:

·     While 71 percent believe integration across owned, earned and paid channels is important, only 29 percent are effectively integrating these different channels. When asked why, 59 percent said that existing systems are too disparate to integrate these channels. This is most evident in areas such as mobile and social where only 21 percent and 22 percent of respondents run these tactics as part of integrated campaigns with the remainder conducting them in silos, discretely and on an ad hoc basis, a practice which inhibits their ability to deliver effective cross-channel campaigns. 

Marketers State Social and Mobile are Biggest Challenges Moving Forward

·     While new social media and mobile devices are vital, 41 percent stated that keeping pace with the growth of these channels and device choices will be their biggest challenge over the next three to five years. This finding follows IBMs 2011 CMO study where 65 percent of CMOs stated that they are under prepared for the growth of social and online channels such as Facebook and Twitter and new device choices including smart phones and tablets. 

Marketers Ignore Social Media Insights:

·     While marketers continue to experiment with social media channels, 51 percent are not using this data to inform decisions about marketing offers and messages. This may represent a missed opportunity for marketers looking to best meet the needs of today’s customer. 

Marketers Fail to Turn Data into Action

·     When asked how they are using online visitor data, 65 percent of respondents are doing the basics, reporting and analyzing their data. Despite that number, only one third are using this data to target one-to-one offers or messages in digital channels and less than 20 percent are using this online data to make one-to-one offers in traditional channels.
