Marketing departments are made up of various teams: email, social media, creative, content, PR, product, etc. Though each is charged with different tasks, they all have something in common: they must manage projects and deliver work on time. What if marketing teams had a single source of truth? Rather than dealing with scattered information using clunky methods, what if each marketing team had a tool that helped manage projects by keeping all information in one place so everyone had visibility into the progress of each task, and access to all assets?

This is the second guest post in a blog series from DevOps Manager Michael Kren about how he started a culture of DevOps at JAMF Software, how he built his team and the tools he used. His entire DevOps journey is collected in an ebook, which is available for download.
