SAN MATEO, Calif., March 5, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Marketo, the provider of a leading cloud-based marketing software platform, today highlights customer Pentaho Corporation for its exceptional data-driven marketing program. Using Marketo, Pentaho has empowered its marketing organization to employ detailed analytics in every facet of their marketing efforts, assisting in the generating of impressive revenue growth over the last year.
In an era where data has more recognition and importance than ever – even going so far as to predict a presidential election – Pentaho has used Marketo to create a marketing engine that provides detailed, actionable insight to achieve a more predictable revenue cycle. Rosanne Saccone, chief marketing officer at Pentaho, says data insight has enabled her to better understand emerging customer shifts, and expectations with product developments and the industry at large. This information helps give her an active seat at the table in C-level business meetings and an edge in predicting sales trends and outcomes.
"We can take a pulse on customer expectations to better understand where the market's going, not just where it's been, which helps us shape our overall business strategy and adjust our business plans to meet aggressive lead, pipeline and revenue goals," says Saccone. "Using Marketo has also been a great experience for my department since Marketo embeds Pentaho in its Marketo® Revenue Cycle Analytics product. We take pride knowing that both Pentaho and Marketo enable us and others to get value from big data and overall analytics for marketing campaigns."
Using marketing automation software, Pentaho runs multiple interactive campaigns for different markets, as well as for international efforts. With its ability to assess campaigns based on specific behavior dynamics and languages, Marketo is also helping Pentaho expand its global market reach.
Today, companies of all sizes are struggling to manage and leverage big data, with solutions that cannot effectively manage that scale and style of data. Additionally, the limited resources qualified to handle the efforts and soaring costs associated with implementations, also present a challenge. Pentaho, however, is leading the solution charge by delivering a fully integrated analytics platform that addresses all of these business obstacles.
Pentaho's data integration and business analytics platform is one of the industry's only solutions that combines best-of-breed technology with ease of implementation and cost efficiencies in one solution. The highly scalable, modern platform provides IT and developers a rich graphical design environment to rapidly develop, deploy and manage complete business and big data analytics solutions and deliver analytics-ready data to business users.
