Well-connected: BrandMaker Integration Framework connects Marketing Efficiency Cloud with your company’s IT

8. October 2015 by Ralf Geßwein (BrandMaker) | 0 comments

Whitepaper ENThe integration of marketing technology in a complex IT environment is a task that already medium-sized companies have to master often. This is also true for marketing technology like our Marketing Efficiency Cloud. For our customers, we have implemented a whole series of integrations to connect our solutions with other business applications such as company-wide used ERP or CRM systems. Some typical application examples from practice are:

  • The Media Pool as a central repository holds out current product and campaign visuals that are used on internal and external websites on the CMS of a third-party supplier.
  • Marketing relevant data from the PIM should be mirrored in our Marketing PIM and should be enriched with advertising texts, pictures, channel-specific information etc. there. This is necessary because frequently the technical PIM is not suitable for this purpose or not organizationally provided.
  • In the Marketing Planner the strategic planning of all marketing activities takes place, but budget information and received bills are available in the ERP system. Therefore, current budget data have to be converted into the Marketing Planner.

For all these scenarios, we have one and the same solution: standardized interfaces for the modules of the Marketing Efficiency Cloud. Read in our white paper “Field-tested Interfaces for System Integration” how the Marketing Efficiency Cloud can be integrated with your enterprise IT.
