Oracle OpenWorld, San Francisco, Calif.—Oct 22, 2018
Oracle Data Cloud today launched a new SMB data solution that helps B2B marketers reach over 115 million IDs at more than 1.5 million small and mid-sized businesses (SMBs) with effective digital campaigns. The new solution enables account-based marketing (ABM) for sales outreach to contacts at small and mid-size businesses across 48 industry and sub-industry segments, offering similar outreach tools to those used by larger organizations.
“Most data and tools for digital B2B marketing have focused on large companies while ignoring the millions of smaller companies who make up the vast majority of US businesses,” said Niraj Deo, vice president, product & data Strategy, Oracle Data Cloud. “This SMB data solution levels the playing field for B2B marketers so they can identify, reach, and manage their sales and marketing programs for both large organizations and the smaller businesses who can drive their growth. By combining their own CRM data with Oracle’s syndicated and custom segments, B2B marketers can use advanced account-based marketing capabilities for this massive, but underserved, universe of SMBs.”
Using Oracle Data Cloud’s (ODC) SMB solution, B2B marketers can build digital audiences to match their marketing goals and business needs, based on criteria ranging from number of employees to financial risk profiles, growth patterns, accepted payments, ecommerce capabilities, and past purchases.
“Cisco has a strong focus on enabling SMBs in their digital transformation initiatives; this is a key pillar of our marketing and sales programs,” said Alex Montuschi, global audience manager of Cisco Corporation. “As we innovate and create offerings meant for SMBs, we see increasing need to reach SMBs already in our CRM systems, and such capabilities will help us increase our reach across small as well as large accounts.”
The SMB data solution launched today by Oracle Data Cloud includes:
“We are excited to partner with ODC on its new SMB solution. ODC has enabled unique use cases based on our commercial data capabilities, which in turn, will help marketers launch successful SMB programs,” said Krista Panoff, vice president, digital partnerships & business development, Transunion.
Oracle’s SMB solution is designed to meet the needs of B2B marketers in major industries, including retail, automotive, consumer packaged goods, financial services, technology, telecommunications, and manufacturing. The foundation for Oracle Data Cloud’s new SMB solution is its existing B2B audience marketplace, the industry’s largest source of B2B data. Also it uses the Oracle ID Graph, a unified identify platform, to help make programmatic and data-driven B2B marketing easier.
“Our research shows that B2B buyers, including those in SMB segments, leverage digital interactions throughout the buying decision process,” said Christina McKeon of leading industry analyst firm SiriusDecisions. “SMBs typically look for offerings that are easy to buy and maintain. To align to these requirements, it's critical that B2B marketers identify the right organizations to market in order to grow their existing SMB customer base, as well as prospect to new customers. Additionally, over 60 percent of B2B organizations report that 11 to 30 percent of their overall marketing budget is dedicated to channel marketing. We often see B2B organizations leverage their channel partners to target specific markets, such as SMB, to support scale and/or take advantage of a partner’s expertise in a specific market.”
