Aprimo Positioned as a Leader in Analyst Firm's Magic Quadrant for Marketing Resource Management

INDIANAPOLIS, IN--(Marketwire - February 3, 2011) - Aprimo® Inc., a global leader in cloud-based integrated marketing software, today announced that it has been positioned by Gartner, Inc. in the "Leaders Quadrant" of the "Magic Quadrant for Marketing Resource Management (MRM)" report. The report was published by Kimberly Collins, managing vice president at Gartner on February 1, 2011.

"Our singular goal as a company is to reduce marketing complexity, improve decision-making and give marketers a higher degree of accountability through the industry's most comprehensive suite of integrated marketing applications," said Bill Godfrey, President of Aprimo. "We believe our position in the leaders quadrant of the MRM report is strong affirmation for the thousands of professionals who use our MRM solution today that we are indeed having an impact on their business as well as the industry overall."

Last month, Teradata Corporation, the world's largest company solely focused on data warehousing and enterprise analytics, acquired Aprimo. While the Magic Quadrant is an evaluation of the past year, Godfrey expects the combined organizations will quickly provide new opportunities for innovation and growth for their sizable customer base. This will extend Aprimo's leadership in integrated marketing management into other high-value business applications, including those that drive insights from the ever-growing volumes of big data -- a complex phenomenon that is expanding marketing opportunities with an explosive number of new data sources.

"Our industry leadership extends far beyond MRM with best-in-class solutions for campaign management as well as email, lead management, event and social marketing. When this is combined with Teradata's powerful data warehousing, analytics and campaign management capabilities, ours will be the only platform capable of delivering such breadth and depth to leading brands across the marketing mix," Godfrey added.

According to Gartner, "leaders in the MRM market demonstrate exemplary performance. They deliver breadth and depth of integrated MRM functionality on large, enterprise-wide and global implementations that extend MRM across the marketing organization and outside the database marketing domain. Leaders successfully articulate business propositions that resonate with buyers."
