SAP Business Innovation: Lee Odden on the Future of Marketing
SAP’s Michael Brenner recently interviewed Lee Odden on how the increasingly connected consumer will change the roles of marketers. With 50 billion connected devices, marketing will inevitably evolve, but what will that look like, he wonders?
“If you want to play, you need to bring your game on the social web. Social media is dynamic in terms of the technologies being developed and in terms of consumer behaviors,” Odden shared. He continued, “According to a study by Ericsson, by 2020 there will be over 50 billion connected devices. All of those devices from smartphones to tablets to watches will empower consumers to create, collaborate, publish, interact and transact anytime, anywhere. The future of social media is ubiquity in information access, collective wisdom and how people connect with each other. Let’s just hope all that connectivity doesn’t replace the kinds of connections that matter most – in real life.”
