The CMO job has evolved into both a right-brain and left-brain skill set. CMOs must balance the creative aspects of their role with an increase in the use of data driven decisions and investment of technology required to achieve corporate objectives. A new focus on context will trump the traditional focus on content and brand. Why? Context will improve the relevancy required to improve precision marketing. Roles, relationships, product ownerships, interactions, time, location, intent, and even sentiment in the digital world, will help with marketing in the analog world. More importantly, the cloud provides CMOs with many options to procure the technologies they need with minimal IT involvement.

Constellation focuses on the techniques and technologies to efficiently and effectively elevate the brand, improve targeting, establish relationships, avert crisis, and resolve incidents.
