Salesforce Appears To Shut Out Marketo In Wake Of ExactTarget Deal
Industry News
Monday, 17 June 2013 11:42

SalesforceIndustry observers speculate that Salesforce.com is taking a more adversarial stance toward some competing marketing automation vendors in the wake of its announced plans to acquire ExactTarget. Marketo was slated to have a booth and a speaking slot at a Salesforce customer event last week in New York, but they did not have a presence. Silverpop was the only marketing automation vendor to have a booth at the event.

Sources told Demand Gen Report that Marketo was excluded from the event because of a conflict over some recent unspecified comments made by Marketo officials, but the friction has been resolved. Marketo is expected to be involved in a Toronto event this Wednesday, according to Salesforce officials.

Marketo and Eloqua are no longer listed on the SFDC AppExchange, although HubSpot remains on the exchange.
