  • Application of SiriusDecisions models and methods as a part of an alignment initiative

The honored organizations were selected from a field of leading b-to-b organizations who have achieved significant and innovative results in an integrated way across their revenue-generating functions.

“As organizations continue their journeys toward functional alignment across sales, marketing and product, an unwavering focus on buyers and customers is what will truly catapult a business ahead of the competition to lasting success,” said John Neeson, Managing Director of SiriusDecisions. “This year’s 23 winners exemplify not only the value of integration, but the use of it to better engage with their key audiences, leading to dramatic business results.
