The value of the global information technology sector is set to hit $5.2 trillion in 2020.

The demand for technology and tech-based solutions is only growing. And it’s not individual consumers driving the tech market’s growth, but corporations and governments purchasing hardware, software and AI products at scale and in bulk.

The challenge faced by B2B marketers at tech companies is keeping track of the products currently in a prospect’s technology stack, and the additions they’ve recently made. The internal company records containing this information are often outdated, and sometimes not publicly available. And crawling the web to research intent signals demands time and resources.

How can B2B marketers know which accounts to pitch their tech products to - and when - in order to successfully close a deal?

Technographic targeting involves segmenting accounts based on companies’ current tech inventory. With technographic targeting, B2B marketing and sales teams can utilize their time effectively by approaching the hottest leads at the right time, with the right product.

We’ve compiled a list of the 10 best data providers for technographic targeting.
