Supercharging Marketing Analytics with Google Cloud

Marketing analytics has emerged as a must-have solution for providing insights into customers and prospects in order to improve the success of marketing programs and make every engagement count.

Informatica further enhances the value for marketing organizations by combining, enriching and augmenting existing Google Marketing data with data from social, CRM and marketing automation sources. Informatica’s out-of-the-box connectivity to sources such as Marketo, Eloqua, Salesforce and Microsoft Dynamics quickly transforms and loads the desired data into Google BigQuery for a holistic view of the entire marketing landscape. These powerful insights allow organizations to provide next great offers to their customers based on past purchases, preferences and behaviors on the web.

Today, marketers are one of the most data-driven function in organizations. With Informatica, customers can pull data from the critical marketing systems, such as Marketo, Eloqua and Salesforce, into Google BigQuery.
