Marketo Offers Free Performance Benchmark Analysis

London, UK - 4 April 2012 - Marketo, the fastest-growing provider of Revenue Performance Management (RPM) solutions, today announced its new Benchmark Survey on Revenue Performance Management. Within minutes, and for no cost, executives can now access in-depth analysis of their revenue performance and marketing automation initiatives, and compare their scores against industry averages and competitors. The RPM Benchmark is part of Marketo's broader Benchmark Study initiative, first introduced with the Benchmark on Email Marketing in September 2011.

The Marketo Benchmark Survey on RPM examines revenue performance maturity and performance metrics across three categories: Growing Number and Quality of Leads and Opportunities; Improving Sales Productivity; and Optimizing Sales and Marketing ROI. Based on responses in each category, companies are grouped into one of four levels of revenue performance maturity: Traditional Marketing, Demand Generation, Integrated Pipeline or Revenue Performance Management.

'Benchmarking is becoming increasingly critical for enterprises to leverage and maintain a distinct competitive advantage,' said Steve Gershik, vice president of marketing, Sirius Decisions. 'By connecting marketing metrics to those used by the sales team, it's possible to measure the impact of marketing on the bottom line - and by comparing different marketing programs to each other, you're also able to focus resources on those with the highest ROI.'

Each category is benchmarked for specific maturity levels to quantify the impact of improving revenue marketing and sales practices. Benchmarks for each industry are also collected, as well as the difference between companies with or without marketing automation. The result is a customized assessment of each organization's maturity and personalization recommendations for action.

Nearly every business wants to leverage the latest in digital offerings to remain competitive in their respective markets and to provide support for fast and ever-increasing demands for data capacity. 400G is the answer.

Initial challenges are associated with supporting such project and upgrades to fulfil the promise of higher-capacity transport.

The foundation of optical networking infrastructure includes coherent optical transceivers and digital signal processing (DSP), mux/demux, ROADM, and optical amplifiers, all of which must be able to support 400G capacity.

With today’s proprietary power-hungry and high cost transceivers and DSP, how is migration to 400G networks going to be a viable option?
