In a recent report, IDC FutureScape: Worldwide Chief Marketing Officer 2024 Predictions — Asia/Pacific (Excluding Japan) Implications, IDC predicts that by 2027, GenAI will assume 30% of traditional marketing’s mundane tasks such as SEO, content and website optimization, customer data analysis, segmentation, lead scoring and hyper-personalization.

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.

The marketing landscape in Asia/Pacific excluding Japan (APeJ) is evolving towards being more data driven. With factors such as Generative AI, marketing content fatigue, phasing out of cookies, and a shift towards an open advertising ecosystem, it is becoming increasingly important for CMOs and CIOs to stay updated on all these evolving trends and how these will impact the marketing and IT functions.

IDC’s predictions highlight that AI will drive greater level of automation across marketing tasks which will ultimately transform the marketer’s role to leverage greater skillsets, and cross-functional collaboration across teams. Below are AI-driven predictions for the region:

Generative AI will act as the enabler through greater automation of manual tasks such as SEO, content, and website optimization” says Lavanya Jindal, Research Analyst, CX, Martech, and Value Streams at IDC.
