Cloudera's journey



Cloudera provides a modern platform for data management and analytics for large global corporations by leveraging Hadoop technology. Cloudera engaged Just Media to build out an ABM program that would drive awareness and engagement with target accounts during the sales process.



With a limited budget for paid media, Cloudera needed to take a scientific approach to prioritizing its target list of 2,500 accounts and avoid resource waste. To optimize its spend and campaign outcome, Cloudera wanted to understand which of those accounts would be most receptive to its messaging, and what messages would resonate most with its audience.



To narrow its focus, Just Media combined Cloudera’s account list and Bombora’s dataset to analyze the content consumption of each target account, establishing prioritization based on accounts demonstrating the greatest intent.

Just Media identified that 28% of Cloudera’s original account list was ‘in-market’ for content topics related to its products. With a more focused target list, Just Media used the most popular topics to inform content offers and advertising, and deployed the campaign across multiple channels.



Demonstrating that online data can be used for offline channels, of the multiple channels deployed, direct marketing was the most productive.

Through the use of personalized magazine subscriptions, which included Cloudera advertising:

  • 66% of target accounts demonstrated lift in on-site engagement; and
  • 74% of those visitors viewed over 16 pages.

Account Based Marketing delivered measurable ROI with over 30 significant business deals being attributed to the campaign targeting.
