HPE, the newly created B2B arm, had to craft a marketing structure from scratch and incorporate legacy systems. Adam Benaroya talks with us about the journey to break down existing data silos and create a structure to supported true, holistic ABM.

More than half of respondents to this year’s Chief Marketer Martech Outlook Survey said they expect marketing technology budgets for ABM and other initiatives to increase in the next 12 months.
