NEW YORK, Dec. 16, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Reportlinker.com announces that a new market research report is available in its catalogue:

Global Marketing Automation Software Market

MAS Becomes a must have Tool, Enabling Marketers to Focus on Measurement, Driving Revenues

This global marketing automation software (MAS) market study discusses the drivers and restraints to growth, market trends, and technology trends. Global and regional forecasts are included. The base year is 2013 and the forecast period runs through 2020. The market is divided into 3 regions: NALA, EMEA, and APAC. The study covers pricing trends along with a detailed distribution channel analysis. The market is split into 2 broad segments: small to mid-size businesses (SMBs) and enterprises. In-depth analyses of each segment along with revenue forecast per region for each segment are included. Also, provided are a detailed analysis of the vertical markets and the competitive landscape of all major market vendors.

Executive Summary

• Marketers need intelligent tools to meet the demands of today's customers who are part of a reverse phenomenon wherein they expect brands to know them instead of the other way around. Marketing automation software (MAS) empowers marketers with tools to manage customer information and intelligently leverage it to acquire, nurture, and retain customers.
• The MAS market earned $X million in revenue over 2013; although growing, it is in many ways a nascent market, with rapidly changing technology and solid growth potential. Frost & Sullivan estimates global revenues will near $Xbillion by 2020.
• This is not yet a concentrated market. Almost half of the 2013 market was dominated by X top competitors—Marketo, Eloqua, and Silverpop.
• However, the next tier of vendors such as Infusionsoft, Act-On Software, and Hubspot is far outpacing the market in terms of growth, indicating that the landscape will change dramatically if the top market competitors do not strive to expand their respective slices of the pie. That said, Frost & Sullivan expects growing mergers and acquisitions (M&A) activity as vendors strive to provide complete solutions for all end-user marketing needs.
• Regionally, NALA—home to nearly every market vendor—dominates with over 80% of market share. Vendors are just expanding overseas into EMEA and APAC.
• The low barrier to entry for new vendors encourages market growth. Many emerging vendors are taking advantage of the enormous demand in small and mid-sized businesses (SMBs) by implementing low-end basic solutions that can be immediately adopted and used, and by experimenting with their pricing models.
• Demand analysis of the end-user experience with MAS indicates that the functionality of marketing automation is ahead of the market. While the urgent need for marketing automation is understood, a gap exists between marketer skills and toolset complexity.
• Lead nurturing and lead scoring are examples of X crucial yet highly underused features of marketing automation; users are not ready for analytics-driven marketing just yet. This skills gap has given birth to a complementary market that is adept at providing technical and consulting services to help businesses succeed using MAS.
• Small businesses have just started entering the data-driven marketing model, but it is the largest potential segment in the long run.
• After high-tech and business services, financial services and healthcare look promising. Retail and travel industries are ready to use MAS; education and non-profit will follow suit.

CEO's Perspective

1. To bridge the chasm between awareness and adoption and to accelerate widespread deployment, the MAS market must actively evangelize the value proposition.
2. Product line strategies geared towards vertical markets such as healthcare, financial services, and retail are the next big requirements for deeper market penetration.
3. The combined value proposition of MAS with other complementary technologies such as DAM, CRM, and MRM pushes the market towards comprehensive offerings and eventual consolidation.
4. Growing online populations in emerging markets are expected to fuel the next phase of growth; vendors with advanced analytics will stand the best chance of replicating success in these markets.

Cloud Expo Breaking News
APIs came about to help companies create and manage their digital ecosystem, enabling them not only to reach more customers through more devices, but also create a large supporting ecosystem of developers and partners. While Facebook, Twitter and Netflix were the early adopters of APIs, large enterprises have been quick to embrace the concept of APIs and have been leveraging APIs as a connective tissue that powers all interactions between their customers, partners and employees. As enterprises embrace APIs, some very specific Enterprise API Adoption patterns and best practices have started emerging. In his session at 14th Cloud Expo, Sachin Agarwal, VP of Product Marketing and Strategy at SOA Software, will talk about the most common enterprise API patterns and will discuss how enterprises can successfully launch an API program.
The social media expansion has shown just how people are eager to share their experiences with the rest of the world. Cloud technology is the perfect platform to satisfy this need given its great flexibility and readiness. At Cynny, we aim to revolutionize how people share and organize their digital life through a brand new cloud service, starting from infrastructure to the users’ interface. A revolution that began from inventing and designing our very own infrastructure: we have created the first server network powered solely by ARM CPU. The microservers have “organism-like” features, differentiating them from any of the current technologies. Benefits include low consumption of energy, making Cynny the ecologically friendly alternative for storage as well as cheaper infrastructure, lower running costs, etc.
Next-Gen Cloud. Whatever you call it, there’s a higher calling for cloud computing that requires providers to change their spots and move from a commodity mindset to a premium one. Businesses can no longer maintain the status quo that today’s service providers offer. Yes, the continuity, speed, mobility, data access and connectivity are staples of the cloud and always will be. But cloud providers that plan to not only exist tomorrow – but to lead – know that security must be the top priority for the cloud and are delivering it now. In his session at 14th Cloud Expo, Kurt Hagerman, Chief Information Security Officer at FireHost, will detail why and how you can have both infrastructure performance and enterprise-grade security – and what tomorrow's cloud provider will look like.
Today, developers and business units are leading the charge to cloud computing. The primary driver: faster access to computing resources by using the cloud's automated infrastructure provisioning. However, fast access to infrastructure exposes the next friction point: creating, delivering, and operating applications much faster. In his session at 14th Cloud Expo, Bernard Golden, VP of Strategy at ActiveState, will discuss why solving the next friction point is critical for true cloud computing success and how developers and business units can leverage service catalogs, frameworks, and DevOps to achieve the true goal of IT: delivering increased business value through applications.
MapDB is an Apache-licensed open source database specifically designed for Java developers. The library uses the standard Java Collections API, making it totally natural for Java developers to use and adopt, while scaling database size from GBs to TBs. MapDB is very fast and supports an agile approach to data, allowing developers to construct flexible schemas to exactly match application needs and tune performance, durability and caching for specific requirements.
Web conferencing in a public cloud has the same risks as any other cloud service. If you have ever had concerns over the types of data being shared in your employees’ web conferences, such as IP, financials or customer data, then it’s time to look at web conferencing in a private cloud. In her session at 14th Cloud Expo, Courtney Behrens, Senior Marketing Manager at Brother International, will discuss how issues that had previously been out of your control, like performance, advanced administration and compliance, can now be put back behind your firewall.
More and more enterprises today are doing business by opening up their data and applications through APIs. Though forward-thinking and strategic, exposing APIs also increases the surface area for potential attack by hackers. To benefit from APIs while staying secure, enterprises and security architects need to continue to develop a deep understanding about API security and how it differs from traditional web application security or mobile application security. In his session at 14th Cloud Expo, Sachin Agarwal, VP of Product Marketing and Strategy at SOA Software, will walk you through the various aspects of how an API could be potentially exploited. He will discuss the necessary best practices to secure your data and enterprise applications while continue continuing to support your business’s digital initiatives.
The revolution that happened in the server universe over the past 15 years has resulted in an eco-system that is more open, more democratically innovative and produced better results in technically challenging dimensions like scale. The underpinnings of the revolution were common hardware, standards based APIs (ex. POSIX) and a strict adherence to layering and isolation between applications, daemons and kernel drivers/modules which allowed multiple types of development happen in parallel without hindering others. Put simply, today's server model is built on a consistent x86 platform with few surprises in its core components. A kernel abstracts away the platform, so that applications and daemons are decoupled from the hardware. In contrast, networking equipment is still stuck in the mainframe era. Today, networking equipment is a single appliance, including hardware, OS, applications and user interface come as a monolithic entity from a single vendor. Switching between different vendor'...
Cloud backup and recovery services are critical to safeguarding an organization’s data and ensuring business continuity when technical failures and outages occur. With so many choices, how do you find the right provider for your specific needs? In his session at 14th Cloud Expo, Daniel Jacobson, Technology Manager at BUMI, will outline the key factors including backup configurations, proactive monitoring, data restoration, disaster recovery drills, security, compliance and data center resources. Aside from the technical considerations, the secret sauce in identifying the best vendor is the level of focus, expertise and specialization of their engineering team and support group, and how they monitor your day-to-day backups, provide recommendations, and guide you through restores when necessary.
Cloud scalability and performance should be at the heart of every successful Internet venture. The infrastructure needs to be resilient, flexible, and fast – it’s best not to get caught thinking about architecture until the middle of an emergency, when it's too late. In his interactive, no-holds-barred session at 14th Cloud Expo, Phil Jackson, Development Community Advocate for SoftLayer, will dive into how to design and build-out the right cloud infrastructure.
You use an agile process; your goal is to make your organization more agile. What about your data infrastructure? The truth is, today’s databases are anything but agile – they are effectively static repositories that are cumbersome to work with, difficult to change, and cannot keep pace with application demands. Performance suffers as a result, and it takes far longer than it should to deliver on new features and capabilities needed to make your organization competitive. As your application and business needs change, data repositories and structures get outmoded rapidly, resulting in increased work for application developers and slow performance for end users. Further, as data sizes grow into the Big Data realm, this problem is exacerbated and becomes even more difficult to address. A seemingly simple schema change can take hours (or more) to perform, and as requirements evolve the disconnect between existing data structures and actual needs diverge.
