Global BrightEdge customers often provide excellent thought leadership for the rest of the industry. In their keynote, Oracle explained how developments in digital technology and culture resulted in them shifting their core culture and their overall strategy to become a leader in the online world. They emphasized that in the modern digital world, when done properly, it can be difficult to know where marketing ends and sales begins. When these two groups work together, in ‘smarketing’, brands can see great ROI. Within their company, Oracle sales reps need to be comfortable with everything from social media to delivering demos.
