  • Collectively exhaustive: Your connectivity layer should be “fit for purpose” for powering your entire stack, not just a component of it. 
  • Low maintenance: Your connectivity layer should eliminate, or at least minimize significantly, the overhead associated with maintaining third-party APIs.

Over 90% of marketers believe that highly integrated platforms will help deliver more efficient programs, better customer experiences and higher marketing ROI. However, because marketers have on average 17 different applications that are highly integrated at only one quarter of the companies surveyed, fewer than 5% of marketers believe their platforms have them well prepared to move ahead with cross-channel marketing.
