The knowledge in the global economy, left behind the production factors which are known as labor, capital, natural resources and entrepreneurship, has become a standalone production factor. The developed information technologies caused human-oriented approaches to flourish and production processes to restructure. With the emergence of customer-oriented approaches, the production process has become "discovering what the customer wants and produce that thus makes profit by satisfying the customer in this fashion". Marketing function within the enterprise became a leading factor even more than the production process and marketing position has become the function of all employees of the enterprise. The enterprises which fail to satisfy their customers, have become weaker economically and cannot survive. As a result, while developed information and communication technologies enabled globalization, the customer has become the most important element in the global economy and those enterprises which can sell whatever they produce, have been replaced by those enterprises who produce and sell whatever the customer wants and competition has been increased leading to global competition which influence entire world. The enterprises which have been deprived of competitive power through the classical marketing mix (product, price, distribution, promotion) now have a tendency towards customer relationship management (CRM). CRM is now used as a new name of the marketing. Introduction
