Episode Info: Episode Title: Enterprise Data Management: When the Enterprise Owns the Data + Are CMOs redundant? Alexei Yukna, Director of Marketing Technology Research at 14West talks gamut of themes, who as a practicing professional – someone who is actually involved in the day-to-day of bringing enterprise data together and leveraging it for better business outcomes – shares some practical insights not just for his peers, but even for martech vendors! Here are some of the key highlights: 1. Going Agile: Alexei takes us through the entire process of how 14West decided to adopt an agile approach to building technology and managing enterprise data for the over 40+ global businesses they serve.
