A chegada de Paulson faz parte de uma estratégia de continuar a desenvolver o potencial na área de Serviços de Marketing, que é um importante mecanismo de crescimento do grupo, após a recente aquisição da Tag Worldwide, uma agência líder de produção de marketing.
A Williams Lea é conhecida por sua liderança nos setores financeiro e jurídico, fornecendo serviços de BPO (Business Process Outsourcing, terceirização de processos de negócios), remodelando o fluxo de informações e melhorando a comunicação de negócios de empresas globais nestes setores.
Entretanto, junto com a Tag, a empresa observa muito do crescimento futuro originando de grandes marcas de consumo, onde podem oferecer serviços e experiência que podem ajudar os proprietários das marcas a oferecer suas comunicações de marketing de maneira sistemática em todas as mídias e em todos os mercados, por meio de uma centralização inteligente da produção.
“Estamos observando cada vez mais as grandes marcas de consumo escolhendo uma maneira mais inteligente de lidar com a estratégia criativa em separado da execução da comunicação de marketing”, diz Conor Davey, diretor executivo do grupo Williams Lea. “Estamos posicionados de maneira exclusiva para formar uma parceria com estas marcas e ajudá-las a fazer isto de maneira bem-sucedida. A nomeação de John reflete o nosso compromisso com esta parte da nossa agenda de crescimento”.
John leva mais de vinte anos de experiência em agência para a Williams Lea. Ele vem da G2 USA, onde foi diretor executivo da firma de serviços de marketing integrados pertencente à WPP, o maior grupo de serviços de comunicação do mundo. Seu sucesso com clientes com Adobe, Heineken, Procter & Gamble, Hertz e Campbell Soup Company fizerem com que recebesse elogios e fazem com seja considerado um líder de opinião na arena de marketing.
Ao entrar na empresa, John comentou: “O setor de serviços de marketing está em um estado de transformação muito necessária. Acredito que a escala e a experiência da Williams Lea no fornecimento de soluções de comunicações globais e otimizadas, combinadas com o modelo comprovado da Tag que oferece a melhor produção do mercado em todas as mídias, não podem ser igualadas pela concorrência. Esta é uma proposta empolgante, e eu não vejo a hora de apresentar aos clientes, novos e existentes".

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 certainly live in interesting technological times. And no more interesting than the current competing IoT standards for connectivity. Various standards bodies, approaches, and ecosystems are vying for mindshare and positioning for a competitive edge. It is clear that when the dust settles, we will have new protocols, evolved protocols, that will change the way we interact with devices and infrastructure. We will also have evolved web protocols, like HTTP/2, that will be changing the very core of our infrastructures. At the same time, we have old approaches made new again like micro-services...

Collecting data in the field and configuring multitudes of unique devices is a time-consuming, labor-intensive process that can stretch IT resources. Horan & Bird [H&B], Australia’s fifth-largest Solar Panel Installer, wanted to automate sensor data collection and monitoring from its solar panels and integrate the data with its business and marketing systems. After data was collected and structured, two major areas needed to be addressed: improving developer workflows and extending access to a business application to multiple users (multi-tenancy). Docker, a container technology, was used to ...

The true value of the Internet of Things (IoT) lies not just in the data, but through the services that protect the data, perform the analysis and present findings in a usable way. With many IoT elements rooted in traditional IT components, Big Data and IoT isn’t just a play for enterprise. In fact, the IoT presents SMBs with the prospect of launching entirely new activities and exploring innovative areas. CompTIA research identifies several areas where IoT is expected to have the greatest impact.

The Industrial Internet revolution is now underway, enabled by connected machines and billions of devices that communicate and collaborate. The massive amounts of Big Data requiring real-time analysis is flooding legacy IT systems and giving way to cloud environments that can handle the unpredictable workloads. Yet many barriers remain until we can fully realize the opportunities and benefits from the convergence of machines and devices with Big Data and the cloud, including interoperability, data security and privacy.

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...

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.

Container frameworks, such as Docker, provide a variety of benefits, including density of deployment across infrastructure, convenience for application developers to push updates with low operational hand-holding, and a fairly well-defined deployment workflow that can be orchestrated. Container frameworks also enable a DevOps approach to application development by cleanly separating concerns between operations and development teams. But running multi-container, multi-server apps with containers is very hard. You have to learn five new and different technologies and best practices (libswarm, sy...

The Internet of Things is a misnomer. That implies that everything is on the Internet, and that simply should not be - especially for things that are blurring the line between medical devices that stimulate like a pacemaker and quantified self-sensors like a pedometer or pulse tracker. The mesh of things that we manage must be segmented into zones of trust for sensing data, transmitting data, receiving command and control administrative changes, and peer-to-peer mesh messaging. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Ryan Bagnulo, Solution Architect / Software Engineer at SOA Software, focused on desi...

While great strides have been made relative to the video aspects of remote collaboration, audio technology has basically stagnated. Typically all audio is mixed to a single monaural stream and emanates from a single point, such as a speakerphone or a speaker associated with a video monitor. This leads to confusion and lack of understanding among participants especially regarding who is actually speaking. Spatial teleconferencing introduces the concept of acoustic spatial separation between conference participants in three dimensional space. This has been shown to significantly improve comprehe...
