Andy Cunningham, recentemente nomeado CEO da Bite Communications, anunciou hoje a integração da Bite com a Bourne, uma agência de marketing digital do Reino Unido que cresce rapidamente, com escritórios em Glasgow e Nova York. Com a adição de 50 profissionais trazendo novas experiências para os negócios da empresa, a Bite agora oferece uma completa linha de serviços de marketing globalmente. Os serviços incluem estratégia e visão, relações públicas, comunicações de marketing, conteúdo criativo, e produtos e serviços digitais e de tecnologia.
A equipe mundial combinada de 15 escritórios e 300 funcionários negociará sob a marca "Bite", com o CEO da Bourne, Dan Kersh, juntando-se à diretoria global como chefe da equipe interna de oferta de marketing da Bite, reportando-se a Cunningham.
"Damos as boas-vindas à equipe da Bourne à família Bite," disse Cunningham. "Esta fusão está acelerando a evolução da Bite para tornar-se uma agência de marketing estratégico, que cuida de todo o ciclo de vida de marketing de um cliente, da estratégia, ao planejamento à execução".
A fusão Bite-Bourne continua a trajetória de dois anos de aquisições da Bite no espaço digital, incluindo OneXeno, ILS e a equipe de pesquisa baseada em Hong Kong de Red Bricks Media (RBM). Junto com a aquisição no ano passado da empresa de consultoria de marketing baseada na Alemanha, Trademark Consulting, a Bite melhora ainda mais sua habilidade de proporcionar programas de marketing realmente globais e digitalmente enfocados para sua base de clientes.
"Aproveitamos uma relação realmente positiva com a Bite nos últimos meses. O processo de juntar as agências tem sido bastante exaustivo, para que nos asseguremos que criamos uma estrutura ótima de serviços para nossos clientes," disse Dan Kersh, CEO da Bourne. "Trabalhamos com marqueteiros seniores em fantásticas empresas. E ainda por cima, estamos criando tecnologias transformadoras do marketing, e desenvolvendo processos comerciais práticos que possibilitarão que nossos clientes prosperem".
Com a integração com a Bourne, a Bite agora fornecerá serviços de marketing digital globais melhorados, da visão à estratégia, à construção de websites, engajamento na mídia social, desenvolvimento de pesquisas e tecnologias de marketing, tais como programas aplicativos de email de marketing. Tudo isso é complementado pelas ofertas existentes de relações públicas de classe mundial da Bite, e enfoque aumentado em conteúdo, devido às suas recentes contratações de jornalistas de alto perfil da nova mídia, TI, setores de canais e consumidores, incluindo o ex-editor de destaques do Times of London e diretor de comunicações da Google, Mike Harvey, e o ex-editor de New Media Age, baseada no Reino Unido, Justin Pearse.
"Na Bite, sempre nos orgulhamos de proporcionar os melhores conselhos e as mais impactantes campanhas para nossa base global de clientes", disse Cunningham. "No entanto, as mudanças contínuas na paisagem do marketing e das comunicações são profundas, com os consumidores frequentemente falando, compartilhando e influenciando. Eles estão sempre ligados - e os marqueteiros precisam responder à altura. A nova Bite os ajuda a fazer exatamente isso".
A equipe global combinada agora inclui estrategistas digitalmente perspicazes, criadores de conteúdo com experiência em matéria de texto-para-vídeo e dados, uma marca e equipe dedicadas e criativas, profissionais em RP, um grupo de tecnologia de marketing e mais de 100 peritos dedicados em digital e social.
A atual carteira de clientes da Bite - Avaya, Citi, FedEx, Marriott, Microsoft, Mozilla, Nokia, SAP, Sony, Telefónica Digital e Toys “R” Us, entre outros - agora incluirá os atuais clientes Bourne, como Arcadia, Dell, eClerx, Equinix, MetLife e Ricoh.
"A fusão terá um impacto significativo na maneira com que oferecemos nossos serviços aos nossos clientes, através de nossos 15 escritórios. Mais importante, ela realçará maciçamente nossa habilidade de fornecer trabalho de força através de canais múltiplos, e em mercados múltiplos, para ajudar a conectar nossos clientes com o consumidor de hoje," disse Cunningham.

How do APIs and IoT relate? The answer is not as simple as merely adding an API on top of a dumb device, but rather about understanding the architectural patterns for implementing an IoT fabric. There are typically two or three trends: Exposing the device to a management framework Exposing that management framework to a business centric logic Exposing that business layer and data to end users. This last trend is the IoT stack, which involves a new shift in the separation of what stuff happens, where data lives and where the interface lies. For instance, it's a mix of architectural styles ...

We are reaching the end of the beginning with WebRTC, and real systems using this technology have begun to appear. One challenge that faces every WebRTC deployment (in some form or another) is identity management. For example, if you have an existing service – possibly built on a variety of different PaaS/SaaS offerings – and you want to add real-time communications you are faced with a challenge relating to user management, authentication, authorization, and validation. Service providers will want to use their existing identities, but these will have credentials already that are (hopefully) i...

Scott Jenson leads a project called The Physical Web within the Chrome team at Google. Project members are working to take the scalability and openness of the web and use it to talk to the exponentially exploding range of smart devices. Nearly every company today working on the IoT comes up with the same basic solution: use my server and you'll be fine. But if we really believe there will be trillions of these devices, that just can't scale. We need a system that is open a scalable and by using the URL as a basic building block, we open this up and get the same resilience that the web enjoys.

The Internet of Things is tied together with a thin strand that is known as time. Coincidentally, at the core of nearly all data analytics is a timestamp. When working with time series data there are a few core principles that everyone should consider, especially across datasets where time is the common boundary. In his session at Internet of @ThingsExpo, Jim Scott, Director of Enterprise Strategy & Architecture at MapR Technologies, discussed single-value, geo-spatial, and log time series data. By focusing on enterprise applications and the data center, he will use OpenTSDB as an example t...

The Domain Name Service (DNS) is one of the most important components in networking infrastructure, enabling users and services to access applications by translating URLs (names) into IP addresses (numbers). Because every icon and URL and all embedded content on a website requires a DNS lookup loading complex sites necessitates hundreds of DNS queries. In addition, as more internet-enabled ‘Things' get connected, people will rely on DNS to name and find their fridges, toasters and toilets. According to a recent IDG Research Services Survey this rate of traffic will only grow. What's driving t...

The definition of IoT is not new, in fact it’s been around for over a decade. What has changed is the public's awareness that the technology we use on a daily basis has caught up on the vision of an always on, always connected world. If you look into the details of what comprises the IoT, you’ll see that it includes everything from cloud computing, Big Data analytics, “Things,” Web communication, applications, network, storage, etc. It is essentially including everything connected online from hardware to software, or as we like to say, it’s an Internet of many different things. The difference ...

The major cloud platforms defy a simple, side-by-side analysis. Each of the major IaaS public-cloud platforms offers their own unique strengths and functionality. Options for on-site private cloud are diverse as well, and must be designed and deployed while taking existing legacy architecture and infrastructure into account. Then the reality is that most enterprises are embarking on a hybrid cloud strategy and programs. In this Power Panel at 15th Cloud Expo (http://www.CloudComputingExpo.com), moderated by Ashar Baig, Research Director, Cloud, at Gigaom Research, Nate Gordon, Director of T...
