Over the past several weeks, the headlines have been dominated by Edward Snowden and the NSA "scandal" (quotes added since I don’t intend to get into the politics of this polarizing issue). In case you missed it, Snowden, a contractor who worked with the NSA, admitted to disclosing classified information regarding NSA security programs that monitored phone calls and e-mail traffic.
Data security has always been a concern for information technology leaders and these concerns are amplified with the move to cloud technology. From a technology sales and marketing perspective, the Snowden debacle raises a question that is worth considering: What impact will the recent news headlines have on the transition to cloud-based services?
Social media and new channels are shifting the balance of power in sales relationships, and many chief marketing officers (more than half, according to an IBM study) are ill-prepared to handle this shift.
But the challenges are not insurmountable. Companies that transform their sales and marketing alignment can take advantage of these changes—and increase market share and profits.
