This positioning announcement is part of a holistic platform update that will introduce a first-of-its-kind product – and bring changes to the pricing and packaging of Opal.

“Our product strategy has been aimed at creating value for all users in the strategy-to-execution pipeline. There is a lot of focus on content production these days with generative AI, and we have those features, too, but what is really exciting to me is building a product which serves the needs of all layers in an organization, but brings it together in a systematized way,” said Huff.

This focus on creating a “New Source of Truth for Marketing” is a direct antidote to solving the organizational alignment challenges experienced by approximately 99% of organizations. According to a 2023 survey by Forrester, 89% of CMOs believe alignment is important to succeed, but only 1% believe they have it. A further 87% state they need better technology to solve the problem.

“The most well-run organizations still put a lot of blood, sweat, and tears into being aligned. From strategy to execution, from channel to channel, from executive to executer – it’s incredibly taxing to break down these silos. We aim to reduce this ‘alignment tax’ so all organizations can create the best experiences for their audiences,” Huff said.
