The enterprise content management industry saw many significant changes during 2016. Acquisitions, mergers and rebranding abounded. For example, OpenText announced plans to acquire Documentum and the rest of Dell's enterprise content division, while Apex Technology acquired Lexmark and rebranded the enterprise software group as Kofax.

7 Tips for Using Marketing Automation to Improve the Customer Experience

December 11, 2015 | Posted by Lisa Carolan

Marketing used to be easier. At the time, all you had to do was place a few print ads, buy a couple spots on radio or television, put up some billboards, or mail out flyers addressed to "Occupant." Then you could relax and wait for the orders to arrive, and in a few weeks or months, you could calculate your return on your advertising investment.

Those days are gone even if you still incorporate some of the "old-school" methods in your marketing strategy. Today, you are competing in a global economy. Your competition — and your customers — have embraced the digital world, and you have little choice but to follow suit.
