DNV GL had nine different business units each using a different, customized to the business unit instance or Pardot. Again each instance was connected to different CRM platforms and each business unit operated their own marketing campaigns independently.
Interestingly enough they did not make use of Pardot landing pages or forms preferring to have all content managed on their website CMS Tridian.
Although I was contracted to Deloitte Norway for this Eloqua implementation I ended up doing this implementation solo. I was lead consultant and developer.
The implementation used 3 week sprints where we packaged up into 9 sprints:
- Sprint 1: Core Eloqua setup
- Sprint 2: Advanced Eloqua setup
- Sprint 3: Eloqua email, landing page, form and campaign templates & Eloqua database setup
- Sprint 4: CRM migration &Eloqua / SFDC integration
- Sprint 6: 3rd party martech integration
- Sprint 7: Advanced backend Eloqua programs
- Sprint 8: Eloqua training
- Sprint 9: On-going Eloqua support
The project was a complete success and on-boarding went very smoothly. There was no real need for additional product support. Handover was very simple and the client needed no more help from any other agencies being fully self-sufficient.
I have never worked with a Norwegian client before and it was a very friendly, co-operative environment. The implementation went really well and I was genuinely sad when the implementation was over. They will be very successful with Eloqua because they have clear ideas about what they want to do and have a real can-do attitude when it comes to new initiatives.
