About 37.8% of chief marketing officers (CMOs) indicated they have already begun implementing GenAI technologies.

Also, 51% of CMOs highlighted that their top business objective in the next 12 months is to improve lead generation through improved quality of content marketing.

AI will drive greater levels of automation across marketing tasks which will ultimately transform the marketer’s role to leverage greater skillsets, and cross-functional collaboration across teams.

“There will be a clear shift towards marketers expanding their skillets to include capabilities such as storytelling, and data analytics and greater cross-functional collaboration with other teams such as IT, sales, and operations towards the notion of a dream team,” said Lavanya Jindal, research analyst, CX, martech, and value streams at IDC.
