This IDC Perspective studies the primary factors CMOs consider when designing organizations today, including six case studies analyzing decisions made by CMOs in companies with differing sizes and business models.

IDC finds that across our broad purview of technology vendor companies, that nearly every chief marketing officer (CMO) is working on his/her organizational structure.
"Today's marketing needs integrated cross-functional teams with fresh practices that serve modern workers. It's exciting to see CMOs explore alternatives for reaching these outcomes," says Kathleen Schaub, vice president, CMO Advisory. "Marketing's functional importance continues to expand as a result of the digital transformation. Companies must support CMOs as they evolve these new structures."
