Unicorn Startup MongoDB cites Unifying Benefits of Eloqua and Salesforce.com

Marketing automation and CRM systems can act as central collection points for the myriad of systems sometimes found in a B2B marketing organization. This point was made explicit in a recent interview of Meagen Eisenberg, CMO for unicorn startup MongoDB. Speaking about the 28 different platforms MongoDB uses to track data and monitor traffic, Ms. Eisenberg said: “Eloqua is our marketing automation platform, and maybe a third of them integrate into either Eloqua or Salesforce.” MongoDB is a pioneer in non-SQL databases. Its products are open source so the company website has thousands of visitors. Capturing, filtering, segmenting, and communicating with these visitors is a major challenge. B2B organizations with similar or lesser challenges should consider following MongoDB’s approach. In many cases, marketers will find that starting with a high-quality marketing automation system like Eloqua, Hubspot, Marketo, or Pardot plus a CRM system for sales and support may preclude the need for multiple systems.
