Tealium Transforms Marketing by Enabling Any Company to Build Its Own Marketing Cloud

Data Layer Wizard Headlines List of New Capabilities Enabling Companies to Unify Their Marketing Applications and Data to Drive More Profitable Cross-Channel Customer Interactions

SAN DIEGO, CA -- (Marketwired) -- 06/11/14 -- Tealium, the global leader in enterprise tag management and solutions that power real-time unified marketing initiatives, today announced the launch of new capabilities enabling any company to build its own marketing cloud so it can drive more profitable and personalized cross-channel campaigns in real-time. The launch includes the industry's first data layer wizard, which makes creating the most strategic layer in the digital marketing technology stack easier than ever. Tealium made the announcement in connection with its appearance at IRCE (Booth #545), scheduled for today and tomorrow in Chicago, and ahead of Digital Velocity Europe 2014, the company's European user conference scheduled for tomorrow in London.

Today's marketers are challenged with figuring out how to navigate an increasingly complex technology landscape, which includes more siloed applications and fragmented data than ever before. As marketers rely more and more on marketing clouds such as those offered by Adobe, Oracle and Salesforce, the need for greater flexibility grows as marketers work to unlock the best ROI possible. Through market-leading Tealium® solutions, organizations can mix and match any digital marketing technology, whether from proprietary marketing clouds, or from thousands of best-in-class point providers. New capabilities include:

  • Data Layer Wizard -- The wizard guides users through an intuitive, step-by-step process for creating a comprehensive data layer, resulting in a common language to fuel all vendors. This makes the unification of data and applications easier and helps drive more personalized, real-time cross-channel experiences. The wizard enables users to quickly build a robust and structured data layer based on the most commonly used data sources, as well as Tealium best practices. The data sources are grouped into bundles spanning a variety of uses, from e-commerce to mobile apps, as well as for platforms such Demandware, Magento, and others. Tealium helped pioneer the data layer in 2011, and many of its executives were at the forefront of tag-based data collection as executives at WebSideStory, a web analytics leader that is now part of the Adobe Marketing Cloud via an acquisition by Omniture.

  • Site Scanning Tool -- Site Scan performs an instant page-by-page website scan to ensure that Tealium is properly deployed on all the right pages, and that Tealium is effectively managing all data-collecting vendor tags as required. The scanning tool can also pinpoint orphaned tags still present on the site, but not managed within the Tealium solution. These orphaned tags -- often forgotten by marketing and IT staff -- can cause data leakage and degrade site performance.

  • Nearly 700 Vendor Tag Integrations -- Tealium now has 693 digital marketing vendor tags seamlessly integrated into its tag marketplace. These integrations make adding a new marketing solution, and the construction of a custom marketing cloud, incredibly easy. Users simply search for a vendor within the marketplace, click on a logo, add some configuration details, and hit publish. The tag is instantly deployed without ever touching a web page, or tying up costly technical resources.

  • Data Connectors with Major Cloud Vendors -- Connectors provide seamless data integrations with major digital marketing vendors so marketers can take real-time action on key audience segments. Tealium has certified data integrations with several major marketing cloud providers, including Oracle Responsys, Silverpop (recently acquired by IBM), and StrongView, with more on the way. The data connectors enable marketers to close the "action gap" and fuel the performance of their new and existing solutions.

Andrew Jones, Senior Analyst, Altimeter Group
"The data layer has become a foundational element of digital marketing. It enables organizations to gain greater value from their existing marketing technologies, as well as enhance coordination between those applications. This makes for a more unified marketing technology infrastructure, which opens up a lot of exciting possibilities for marketers."

Mike Anderson, CTO and Cofounder, Tealium
"These new capabilities provide a key foundation for any business to easily create its own marketing cloud and better maximize its marketing investments and ROI across the board. Through the Tealium platform, marketers can get their marketing applications working together for the first time and effectively end what has been a siloed and fragmented approach to digital marketing for the last 15 years."

Joe Lucas, Director of Digital Marketing & Demand Generation, InsideView
"Marketing is currently trying to manage about the same number of solutions as engineering, but our marketing organization is much smaller and not technical in nature. Tealium helps us manage and maximize our entire digital marketing technology stack in a very efficient, controlled way. We look forward to building out our marketing cloud and leveraging the synergies that Tealium provides."

Countless business models have spawned from the IaaS industry – resell Web hosting, blogs, public cloud, and on and on. With the overwhelming amount of tools available to us, it's sometimes easy to overlook that many of them are just new skins of resources we've had for a long time. In his general session at 17th Cloud Expo, Harold Hannon, Sr. Software Architect at SoftLayer, an IBM Company, broke down what we have to work with, discussed the benefits and pitfalls and how we can best use them to design hosted applications.
Most of the IoT Gateway scenarios involve collecting data from machines/processing and pushing data upstream to cloud for further analytics. The gateway hardware varies from Raspberry Pi to Industrial PCs. The document states the process of allowing deploying polyglot data pipelining software with the clear notion of supporting immutability. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Shashank Jain, a development architect for SAP Labs, discussed the objective, which is to automate the IoT deployment process from development to production scenarios using Docker containers.
We all know that data growth is exploding and storage budgets are shrinking. Instead of showing you charts on about how much data there is, in his General Session at 17th Cloud Expo, Scott Cleland, Senior Director of Product Marketing at HGST, showed how to capture all of your data in one place. After you have your data under control, you can then analyze it in one place, saving time and resources.
The Internet of Things (IoT) is growing rapidly by extending current technologies, products and networks. By 2020, Cisco estimates there will be 50 billion connected devices. Gartner has forecast revenues of over $300 billion, just to IoT suppliers. Now is the time to figure out how you’ll make money – not just create innovative products. With hundreds of new products and companies jumping into the IoT fray every month, there’s no shortage of innovation. Despite this, McKinsey/VisionMobile data shows "less than 10 percent of IoT developers are making enough to support a reasonably sized team....
Just over a week ago I received a long and loud sustained applause for a presentation I delivered at this year’s Cloud Expo in Santa Clara. I was extremely pleased with the turnout and had some very good conversations with many of the attendees. Over the next few days I had many more meaningful conversations and was not only happy with the results but also learned a few new things. Here is everything I learned in those three days distilled into three short points.
DevOps is about increasing efficiency, but nothing is more inefficient than building the same application twice. However, this is a routine occurrence with enterprise applications that need both a rich desktop web interface and strong mobile support. With recent technological advances from Isomorphic Software and others, rich desktop and tuned mobile experiences can now be created with a single codebase – without compromising functionality, performance or usability. In his session at DevOps Summit, Charles Kendrick, CTO and Chief Architect at Isomorphic Software, demonstrated examples of com...
As organizations realize the scope of the Internet of Things, gaining key insights from Big Data, through the use of advanced analytics, becomes crucial. However, IoT also creates the need for petabyte scale storage of data from millions of devices. A new type of Storage is required which seamlessly integrates robust data analytics with massive scale. These storage systems will act as “smart systems” provide in-place analytics that speed discovery and enable businesses to quickly derive meaningful and actionable insights. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Paul Turner, Chief Marketing Officer at...
In his keynote at @ThingsExpo, Chris Matthieu, Director of IoT Engineering at Citrix and co-founder and CTO of Octoblu, focused on building an IoT platform and company. He provided a behind-the-scenes look at Octoblu’s platform, business, and pivots along the way (including the Citrix acquisition of Octoblu).
In his General Session at 17th Cloud Expo, Bruce Swann, Senior Product Marketing Manager for Adobe Campaign, explored the key ingredients of cross-channel marketing in a digital world. Learn how the Adobe Marketing Cloud can help marketers embrace opportunities for personalized, relevant and real-time customer engagement across offline (direct mail, point of sale, call center) and digital (email, website, SMS, mobile apps, social networks, connected objects).
The Internet of Everything is re-shaping technology trends–moving away from “request/response” architecture to an “always-on” Streaming Web where data is in constant motion and secure, reliable communication is an absolute necessity. As more and more THINGS go online, the challenges that developers will need to address will only increase exponentially. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Todd Greene, Founder & CEO of PubNub, exploreed the current state of IoT connectivity and review key trends and technology requirements that will drive the Internet of Things from hype to reality.
Two weeks ago (November 3-5), I attended the Cloud Expo Silicon Valley as a speaker, where I presented on the security and privacy due diligence requirements for cloud solutions. Cloud security is a topical issue for every CIO, CISO, and technology buyer. Decision-makers are always looking for insights on how to mitigate the security risks of implementing and using cloud solutions. Based on the presentation topics covered at the conference, as well as the general discussions heard between sessions, I wanted to share some of my observations on emerging trends. As cyber security serves as a fou...
With all the incredible momentum behind the Internet of Things (IoT) industry, it is easy to forget that not a single CEO wakes up and wonders if “my IoT is broken.” What they wonder is if they are making the right decisions to do all they can to increase revenue, decrease costs, and improve customer experience – effectively the same challenges they have always had in growing their business. The exciting thing about the IoT industry is now these decisions can be better, faster, and smarter. Now all corporate assets – people, objects, and spaces – can share information about themselves and thei...
The cloud. Like a comic book superhero, there seems to be no problem it can’t fix or cost it can’t slash. Yet making the transition is not always easy and production environments are still largely on premise. Taking some practical and sensible steps to reduce risk can also help provide a basis for a successful cloud transition. A plethora of surveys from the likes of IDG and Gartner show that more than 70 percent of enterprises have deployed at least one or more cloud application or workload. Yet a closer inspection at the data reveals less than half of these cloud projects involve production...
Discussions of cloud computing have evolved in recent years from a focus on specific types of cloud, to a world of hybrid cloud, and to a world dominated by the APIs that make today's multi-cloud environments and hybrid clouds possible. In this Power Panel at 17th Cloud Expo, moderated by Conference Chair Roger Strukhoff, panelists addressed the importance of customers being able to use the specific technologies they need, through environments and ecosystems that expose their APIs to make true change and transformation possible.
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.
Microservices are a very exciting architectural approach that many organizations are looking to as a way to accelerate innovation. Microservices promise to allow teams to move away from monolithic "ball of mud" systems, but the reality is that, in the vast majority of organizations, different projects and technologies will continue to be developed at different speeds. How to handle the dependencies between these disparate systems with different iteration cycles? Consider the "canoncial problem" in this scenario: microservice A (releases daily) depends on a couple of additions to backend B (re...
Container technology is shaping the future of DevOps and it’s also changing the way organizations think about application development. With the rise of mobile applications in the enterprise, businesses are abandoning year-long development cycles and embracing technologies that enable rapid development and continuous deployment of apps. In his session at DevOps Summit, Kurt Collins, Developer Evangelist at, examined how Docker has evolved into a highly effective tool for application delivery by allowing increasingly popular Mobile Backend-as-a-Service (mBaaS) platforms to quickly crea...
The Internet of Things is clearly many things: data collection and analytics, wearables, Smart Grids and Smart Cities, the Industrial Internet, and more. Cool platforms like Arduino, Raspberry Pi, Intel's Galileo and Edison, and a diverse world of sensors are making the IoT a great toy box for developers in all these areas. In this Power Panel at @ThingsExpo, moderated by Conference Chair Roger Strukhoff, panelists discussed what things are the most important, which will have the most profound effect on the world, and what should we expect to see over the next couple of years.
Growth hacking is common for startups to make unheard-of progress in building their business. Career Hacks can help Geek Girls and those who support them (yes, that's you too, Dad!) to excel in this typically male-dominated world. Get ready to learn the facts: Is there a bias against women in the tech / developer communities? Why are women 50% of the workforce, but hold only 24% of the STEM or IT positions? Some beginnings of what to do about it! In her Day 2 Keynote at 17th Cloud Expo, Sandy Carter, IBM General Manager Cloud Ecosystem and Developers, and a Social Business Evangelist, wil...
