I love this time of year. Not only are we seeing the ends of winter rapidly slip away (a big deal for us northerners), it’s also the time of year we get to celebrate the amazing work being done with the Oracle Marketing Cloud.
On Friday, Oracle rolled out the list of organizations that are nominated for a 2017 Markie Award. For those not in the know, the Markie Awards celebrate excellence in MarTech and AdTech. The awards highlight the outstanding work of the best-of-the-best.
As I read through the list of nominees, the smile on my face grew larger and larger. The categories alone are impressive: Best Digital Marketing Ecosystem, Best Integrated Mobile Experience, Best Overall Customer Experience, Modern Marketing Leader of the Year… the list goes on. Simply reflecting on what goes into the criteria of determining nominees is impressive.
While the categories are impressive, even more so are the organizations that are nominated. The caliber of companies, and the marketers behind the brand, is outstanding. Obviously, we are partial to the organizations we work with, but everyone nominated is doing a fantastic job.
Speaking on the organizations we work with, we couldn’t be prouder to see our friends get a well-deserved nomination:
- Mountain America Credit Union
- Thomson Reuters
People and organizations who get nominated for a Markie Award are those who take stock of what their current organization is doing, see where they need to head in order to get to the next level, and implement like crazy to get there. These are the folks who understand that when you leverage technology and creativity, you really can move the needle on business goals. Markie Award nominees understand that a modern marketing team is the lifeblood of successful revenue growth within their organization.
We can’t wait to celebrate alongside ALL of the nominees at the Modern Marketing Experience at the end of April. Congrats to all who were selected and double-extra good luck to all the Relationship One clients competing for a trophy this year!
