As part of Aprimo's industry-leading IMM suite, AMS 8.8 features dozens of enhancements that make marketing processes and campaigns dramatically more efficient and effective, enabling marketers to better engage with customers and increase the value they provide to their organizations.

According to a recent Gartner, Inc. report, "Marketing organizations don't always think about process. However, the growing complexity in the marketing organization makes it imperative that companies document and define their marketing processes and automate them. An understanding of executional, operational and analytical processes, and how they relate to technologies such as campaign management, MRM and marketing performance management (MPM) is essential to marketing being able to develop and automate processes that bring business value (efficiency and effectiveness). IMM is how these processes and technologies are brought together to support a closed-loop marketing process for any initiative."
