Advising on Digital Marketing, Sales Effectiveness, Customer Experience Through the Realities of Digital Transformation

SILICON VALLEY, Calif. – November 8, 2018 – Constellation Research announced Nicole France joined the company as vice president and principal analyst to research, forecast and advise clients on digital marketing, sales effectiveness and customer experience. She will examine the interrelationships and requirements needed to effectively navigate digital transformation. The appointment of France reinforces Constellation’s ongoing commitment to providing strategic guidance and practical understanding of what leaders need in this digital age.

With over twenty years of experience as a technology analyst and marketer, France has a unique perspective on both the trends and practicalities around effective customer engagement. She understands the key requirements across industries, such as retail, healthcare, local government, digital cities and energy/utilities, and how those executives need to adapt to the continually evolving environment. Her research and advisory work will cut out the marketing jargon and break down the steps companies should take to make the most out of their investments and stay competitive.

“We have yet to realize the potential of digital transformation in some fundamental aspects of customer engagement,” said France. “Technology tools have so far widened the gulf between marketing and sales rather than bridging it. It’s time to turn things around. My motivation for joining Constellation is the opportunity to help both enterprises and vendors refocus on the number one priority: understanding customers.”

“Successful customer experience and engagement programs require a multidisciplinary approach, and our clients look to our expertise to advise them through a cohesive, holistic journey. Nicole will bring that fresh perspective to the market, and we are honored to have her as part of our team. She will complement and expand upon our coverage areas and the value we offer to our clients,” said R “Ray” Wang, founder and CEO at Constellation Research.

France previously served as an executive thought leader at Cisco, covering digital transformation, IoT and cloud in a range of industry sectors. She has held technology offering and industry marketer roles at Fujitsu and Equinix, in addition to holding roles as an industry analyst at Gartner and G2 Research for nearly a decade.
