Bite et Bourne fusionnent pour créer une agence de services de marketing mondiale

Andy Cunningham, le PDG récemment nommé de Bite Communications, a annoncé aujourd’hui l’intégration à Bite de Bourne, une agence de marketing numérique créative britannique en plein essor qui compte des bureaux à Glasgow et à New York. Avec l’ajout de 50 professionnels contribuant une nouvelle expertise aux prestations de la société, Bite propose désormais une gamme complète de services de marketing à l’échelle mondiale. Ses services couvrent la stratégie et les perspectives, les relations publiques, les communications de marketing, la création et le contenu, ainsi que les produits et services numériques et de technologie.

L’équipe combinée de 300 personnes réparties dans 15 bureaux à l’échelle mondiale exercera ses activités sous la marque « Bite » et le PDG de Bourne, Dan Kersh, rejoindra le conseil d’administration international en tant que chef de l’équipe de marketing interne de Bite, relevant de M. Cunningham.

« La famille Bite souhaite la bienvenue à l’équipe Bourne », a déclaré M. Cunningham. « Cette fusion accélère la transformation de Bite en une agence de marketing stratégique axée sur l’ensemble du cycle de vie de marketing d’un client, de la stratégie au planning, jusqu’à l’exécution ».

La fusion Bite-Bourne fait suite à deux années d’acquisitions par Bite dans l’espace numérique, y compris OneXeno, ILS et l’équipe de recherche de Red Bricks Media (RBM), basée à Hong Kong. Avec l’acquisition de l’agence de consultation en marketing allemande Trademark Consulting l’année dernière, Bite optimise encore plus sa capacité à livrer des programmes de marketing axés sur le numérique et véritablement mondiaux à sa clientèle.

« Nous avons apprécié une relation réellement positive avec Bite au cours des derniers mois. Le processus de fusion des deux agences a été assez approfondi pour assurer la création d’une structure et de services de premier ordre pour nos clients », a ajouté Dan Kersh, PDG de Bourne. « Nous travaillons avec des spécialistes du marketing seniors et des entreprises étonnantes. Et nous créons des technologies de marketing transformatrices et développons des processus commerciaux pratiques qui assureront le succès de nos clients ».

L’intégration de Bourne va permettre à Bite d’offrir à ses clients des services de marketing numériques mondiaux optimisés allant de l’intuition et la stratégie, à la construction de sites Web, l’engagement dans les médias sociaux, le marketing de recherche et le développement technologique, tels que les applications et les programmes de marketing par courrier électronique. À ces services s’ajoutent les offres de relations publiques de classe mondiale existantes de Bite et l’importance accrue qu’accorde la société au contenu avec son recrutement récent de journalistes prestigieux des secteurs des nouveaux médias, des technologies de l’information, canal et grand public, y compris l’ancien rédacteur d'articles spéciaux du Times of London et directeur des communications de Google, Mike Harvey, et Justin Pearse, l’ancien rédacteur du magazine britannique New Media Age.

« Bite s’est toujours enorgueillie de fournir les meilleurs conseils et les campagnes les plus percutantes à sa clientèle mondiale », a expliqué M. Cunningham. « Toutefois, les changements continus dans l’espace du marketing et des communications, où les consommateurs parlent, partagent et influencent constamment, sont profonds. Ils sont toujours branchés — et les spécialistes du marketing doivent réagir en conséquence. C’est exactement ce que la nouvelle agence Bite les aide à faire ».

L’équipe mondiale combinée comprend désormais des stratégistes férus en numérique, des créateurs de contenu revendiquant une expertise allant du texte à la vidéo et aux données, une marque spécialisée et une équipe créative, des professionnels des relations publiques, un groupe de marketing de technologie et plus de 100 experts spécialisés dans le numérique et le social.

Le portefeuille existant de clients de Bite — Avaya, Citi, FedEx, Marriott, Microsoft, Mozilla, Nokia, SAP, Sony, Telefónica Digital et Toys “R” Us, entre autres — comprendra désormais les clients actuels de Bourne, dont Arcadia, Dell, eClerx, Equinix, MetLife et Ricoh.

« Cette fusion va exercer un impact significatif sur la façon dont nous offrons nos services à nos clients dans nos 15 bureaux. Et, ce qui est encore plus important, elle va améliorer considérablement notre capacité à fournir de solides prestations à travers de multiples réseaux et sur de nombreux marchés pour aider nos clients à se connecter au consommateur d’aujourd’hui », a conclu M. Cunningham.

Too often with compelling new technologies market participants become overly enamored with that attractiveness of the technology and neglect underlying business drivers. This tendency, what some call the “newest shiny object syndrome,” is understandable given that virtually all of us are heavily engaged in technology. But it is also mistaken. Without concrete business cases driving its deployment, IoT, like many other technologies before it, will fade into obscurity.
The Internet of Things is in the early stages of mainstream deployment but it promises to unlock value and rapidly transform how organizations manage, operationalize, and monetize their assets. IoT is a complex structure of hardware, sensors, applications, analytics and devices that need to be able to communicate geographically and across all functions. Once the data is collected from numerous endpoints, the challenge then becomes converting it into actionable insight.
Consumer IoT applications provide data about the user that just doesn’t exist in traditional PC or mobile web applications. This rich data, or “context,” enables the highly personalized consumer experiences that characterize many consumer IoT apps. This same data is also providing brands with unprecedented insight into how their connected products are being used, while, at the same time, powering highly targeted engagement and marketing opportunities. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Nathan Treloar, President and COO of Bebaio, will explore examples of brands transforming their businesses by t...
With the Apple Watch making its way onto wrists all over the world, it’s only a matter of time before it becomes a staple in the workplace. In fact, Forrester reported that 68 percent of technology and business decision-makers characterize wearables as a top priority for 2015. Recognizing their business value early on, FinancialForce.com was the first to bring ERP to wearables, helping streamline communication across front and back office functions. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Kevin Roberts, GM of Platform at FinancialForce.com, will discuss the value of business applications on wearable ...
With the proliferation of connected devices underpinning new Internet of Things systems, Brandon Schulz, Director of Luxoft IoT – Retail, will be looking at the transformation of the retail customer experience in brick and mortar stores in his session at @ThingsExpo. Questions he will address include: Will beacons drop to the wayside like QR codes, or be a proximity-based profit driver? How will the customer experience change in stores of all types when everything can be instrumented and analyzed? As an area of investment, how might a retail company move towards an innovation methodolo...
The Internet of Things (IoT) is about the digitization of physical assets including sensors, devices, machines, gateways, and the network. It creates possibilities for significant value creation and new revenue generating business models via data democratization and ubiquitous analytics across IoT networks. The explosion of data in all forms in IoT requires a more robust and broader lens in order to enable smarter timely actions and better outcomes. Business operations become the key driver of IoT applications and projects. Business operations, IT, and data scientists need advanced analytics t...
While many app developers are comfortable building apps for the smartphone, there is a whole new world out there. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Narayan Sainaney, Co-founder and CTO of Mojio, will discuss how the business case for connected car apps is growing and, with open platform companies having already done the heavy lifting, there really is no barrier to entry.
Contrary to mainstream media attention, the multiple possibilities of how consumer IoT will transform our everyday lives aren’t the only angle of this headline-gaining trend. There’s a huge opportunity for “industrial IoT” and “Smart Cities” to impact the world in the same capacity – especially during critical situations. For example, a community water dam that needs to release water can leverage embedded critical communications logic to alert the appropriate individuals, on the right device, as soon as they are needed to take action.

As more intelligent IoT applications shift into gear, they’re merging into the ever-increasing traffic flow of the Internet. It won’t be long before we experience bottlenecks, as IoT traffic peaks during rush hours.

WebRTC has had a real tough three or four years, and so have those working with it. Only a few short years ago, the development world were excited about WebRTC and proclaiming how awesome it was. You might have played with the technology a couple of years ago, only to find the extra infrastructure requirements were painful to implement and poorly documented. This probably left a bitter taste in your mouth, especially when things went wrong.
