    • Coordination & Collaboration: Oracle SRM's workflow functionality will enable better coordination and conversation between the community manager (owned and earned content), and the agency or media manager (paid content), facilitating a more efficient and effective use of the owned, earned and paid media equation.
    • Custom Audiences: Customers will be able to take advantage of SRM's Custom Audiences capability via Oracle Marketing Cloud integrations.

Social a Growing Piece of Digital Ad Pie

  • According to eMarketer, 2014 will be the year marketers begin to master the art of engaging with media multitaskers -- often via social. eMarketer predicts social's slice of the digital ad pie will approach 12 percent in the U.S., up from 8 percent in 2012, and nearly 9 percent worldwide, up from 7 percent in 2012.(1)
  • As marketing moves increasingly toward becoming real-time and right-time, enterprise marketers need to be able to quickly and seamlessly create varied content often with multiple agencies or employees involved.
