Cloud services are creating a distinct sense of overlap and a blur of corporate responsibility as CMOs evaluate, acquire, and field extensive new IT capabilities for digital advertising, customer experience management, CRM, and other related functions across a growing set of touchpoints, which now include at a bare minimum traditional media, online media, social media, and mobile devices.
