In the words of Dana Teahan, a tech entrepreneur in Australia, cloud apps like email marketing and marketing automation are breakthrough technologies that breached the barrier between big and small business.

With the current better team work coming, marketing teams are not impulsive to sign Software-as-a-service (SaaS) apps without taking IT teams into confidence. Marketing teams begin to understand the importance of getting apps integrated to other systems.
