Brands and enterprises know all about marketing tech stacks. Marketing technologist Scott Brinker has assembled 5,381 logos into the current Martech landscape, and there’s even an award — the Stackies — for the best-dressed, best-looking, or most popular martech stack.

If you’re mobile-first, you probably don’t need huge chunks of the literally dozens of categories of martech. Channel marketing? Nope. Sales automation? No sales force to automate. E-commerce platforms? Maybe … but maybe Apple and Google handle all your payment processing. CRM? Not traditional CRM, that’s for sure. Print advertising? Uh-uh. Call analytics?
