and a key
integration with Adobe Experience Manager.

market visibility, high market penetration, strong market momentum and a
strategic vision for growing the campaign management business."

offers, both inbound and outbound, to customer segments across
multichannel environments, such as websites, mobile, social, direct
mail, call centers and email. Digital marketing continues to integrate
with campaign management, and it includes addressable
branding/advertising, contextual marketing and transactional marketing.
