It seems you either have what it takes... or not

When speaking to businesses about their marketing, integration is a common challenge, whether that's integration of comms, technology or teams within a business.

The latest Econsultancy / Adobe Digital Intelligence briefing sheds some light on how many businesses have achieved integration. It's encouraging to see that nearly half of businesses can confidently state:

Digital Marketing permeates most of our marketing activities

Kudos to the businesses that say that digital permeates all our marketing activities or that they are 'digital first'.

It's less encouraging to see that this figure hasn't changed much over the last 3 years. What's more, integration is severely lacking in nearly one-fifth of companies say that digital marketing is 'very much separate'.
