CabinetM and Stacktus merge

CabinetM, the Boston-based martech management and visualization platform has merged, effective immediately, with Denver-based Stacktus, a platform with a similar vision created by Megan Michuda just one year ago. Stacktus has already ceased standalone operations.

Stacktus: the background. The impetus behind Stacktus was to relieve marketing operations managers of the need to rely on spreadsheets to keep track of their stacks. Its features included an auto-stack builder, the ability to track integrations between solutions within the stack, and a roadmap planning tool for future martech acquisitions.

CabinetM: the background. With a directory of martech vendors comparable in depth to Scott Brinker’s martech landscape, CabinetM not only provides a discovery tool for solutions within the space, but also paid services for auditing and evaluating existing stacks.

In a statement, Anita Brearton, CabinetM CEO said: “From the start, CabinetM has been focused on helping marketing operations teams navigate the complexity of managing their large and growing martech stacks, mapping integrations and data flows, and responding to reporting and visualization demands. We are delighted to add Megan’s deep marketing operations background to our team, as we continue to execute against new marketing ops challenges.”

“Being able to bring Stacktus and its customers to a technology management leader like CabinetM is a win-win for both organizations,” said Stacktus founder Michuda.

Why we care.This looks like a logical consolidation move in a space which is both highly specialized, and of great interest to marketers and marketing ops specialists. Unlike G2 and TrustRadius, for example, which provide reviews and other services across all software categories, CabinetM and Stacktus focus exclusively on martech.
