Bite und Bourne fusionieren zu globaler Marketingdienstleistungsagentur

Der neue CEO von Bite Communications, Andy Cunningham, hat heute die Eingliederung von Bourne, einer wachstumsstarken digitalen Marketingagentur mit Sitz in Großbritannien und Niederlassungen in Glasgow und New York, bekannt gegeben. Mit den 50 zusätzlichen Fachleuten, die dem Unternehmen neue Kompetenzen einbringen, bietet Bite nun auf globaler Ebene ein Komplettangebot an Marketingdienstleistungen. Zu diesen Dienstleistungen zählen Strategien und Erkenntnisse, Öffentlichkeitsarbeit, Marketingkommunikation, grafische und inhaltliche Gestaltung sowie digitale und technische Produkte und Leistungen.

Das neue Team mit 15 Niederlassungen und 300 Mitarbeitern wird unter dem Markennamen „Bite“ weitergeführt, und der CEO von Bourne, Dan Kersh, stößt als Leiter des internen Marketingteams zum globalen Vorstand von Bite, wo er direkt Cunningham unterstellt ist.

„Wir heißen das Team von Bourne in der Bite-Familie willkommen“, sagte Cunningham. „Diese Übernahme beschleunigt die Weiterentwicklung von Bite hin zu einer strategischen Marketingagentur, die sich mit dem gesamten Marketinglebenszyklus der Kunden von der Strategie über die Planung bis hin zur Ausführung beschäftigt.“

Die Fusion von Bite und Bourne erfolgt nach zwei Jahren, in denen Bite im digitalen Bereich zahlreiche Übernahmen getätigt hat, darunter OneXeno, ILS und das in Hongkong stationierte Suchteam von Red Bricks Media (RBM). Zusammen mit der letztjährigen Übernahme des deutschen Marketingberatungsunternehmens Trademark Consulting erweitert Bite damit seine Fähigkeiten zur Bereitstellung wahrhaft globaler, auf digitale Kanäle konzentrierter Marketingprogramme für seinen Kundenstamm.

„Wir pflegen seit ein paar Monaten eine wirklich positive Beziehung zu Bite. Der Ablauf des Zusammenschlusses der beiden Agenturen wird sehr gründlich vorgenommen, sodass wir garantiert die beste Struktur mit den besten Dienstleistungen für unsere Kunden errichten“, sagte Dan Kersh, CEO von Bourne. „Wir arbeiten mit erfahrenen Marketern von tollen Firmen zusammen. Und wir erstellen transformative Marketingtechnologien und entwickeln praktische Geschäftsabläufe, durch die unsere Kunden prosperieren werden.“

Mit der Eingliederung von Bourne bietet Bite den Kunden nun erweiterte globale Marketingdienstleistungen im Digitalbereich, von Erkenntnissen und Strategien über den Aufbau von Websites und die Einbeziehung von sozialen Medien bis hin zur Entwicklung von Suchmaschinenmarketing und Technologien wie Applikationen und E-Mail-Marketingprogrammen. Ergänzt wird dies durch die bestehenden erstklassigen Angebote von Bite im Bereich Öffentlichkeitsarbeit und die verstärkte Konzentration auf inhaltliche Bereiche dank der Anstellung bekannter Journalisten aus Fachgebieten wie neue Medien, IT und Verbrauchsgüter, darunter Mike Harvey, ehemaliger Redakteur für Sonderbeilagen der Londoner Times und Kommunikationsleiter von Google, sowie Justin Pearse, ehemaliger Redakteur des britischen Nachrichtenmagazins New Media Age.

„Bei Bite rühmen wir uns seit je damit, unserem globalen Kundenstamm die beste Beratung und die wirkungsvollsten Kampagnen zu bieten“, sagte Cunningham. „Die fortlaufenden Veränderungen in der Marketing- und Kommunikationslandschaft sind jedoch erheblich: Verbraucher sind unablässig dabei, sich zu unterhalten, Dinge auszutauschen und dadurch Einfluss zu nehmen. Sie sind immer auf Sendung – und Marketer müssen darauf reagieren können. Mit der neuen Version von Bite können sie genau das tun.“

Das neue globale Team umfasst nun erfahrene Strategen im Digitalbereich, Autoren mit Erfahrung in der Gestaltung von Texten für Video- und Datenspuren, ein spezielles Marken- und Kreativteam, PR-Fachleute, eine Technologiemarketinggruppe sowie über 100 Spezialfachkräfte für digitale und soziale Medien.

In das aktuelle Portfolio von Bite – darunter Avaya, Citi, FedEx, Marriott, Microsoft, Mozilla, Nokia, SAP, Sony, Telefónica Digital und Toys „R“ Us – werden nun auch aktuelle Kunden von Bourne wie etwa Arcadia, Dell, eClerx, Equinix, MetLife und Ricoh aufgenommen.

„Die Fusion wird wesentliche Auswirkungen darauf haben, wie wir unseren Kunden über die 15 Niederlassungen hinweg unsere Dienstleistungen anbieten. Am wichtigsten dabei ist, dass unsere Fähigkeit zur Bereitstellung starker Arbeiten auf mehreren Kanälen und in mehreren Märkten enorm verbessert wird, wodurch unsere Kunden die Verbraucher von heute besser erreichen werden“, sagte Cunningham.

Fortunately, meaningful and tangible business cases for IoT are plentiful in a broad array of industries and vertical markets. These range from simple warranty cost reduction for capital intensive assets, to minimizing downtime for vital business tools, to creating feedback loops improving product design, to improving and enhancing enterprise customer experiences. All of these business cases, which will be briefly explored in this session, hinge on cost effectively extracting relevant data from ...
As enterprises work to take advantage of Big Data technologies, they frequently become distracted by product-level decisions. In most new Big Data builds this approach is completely counter-productive: it presupposes tools that may not be a fit for development teams, forces IT to take on the burden of evaluating and maintaining unfamiliar technology, and represents a major up-front expense. In his session at @BigDataExpo at @ThingsExpo, Andrew Warfield, CTO and Co-Founder of Coho Data, will dis...

Most people haven’t heard the word, “gamification,” even though they probably, and perhaps unwittingly, participate in it every day. Gamification is “the process of adding games or game-like elements to something (as a task) so as to encourage participation.” Further, gamification is about bringing game mechanics – rules, constructs, processes, and methods – into the real world in an effort to engage people. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Robert Endo, owner and engagement manager of Intrepid D...
Eighty percent of a data scientist’s time is spent gathering and cleaning up data, and 80% of all data is unstructured and almost never analyzed. Cognitive computing, in combination with Big Data, is changing the equation by creating data reservoirs and using natural language processing to enable analysis of unstructured data sources. This is impacting every aspect of the analytics profession from how data is mined (and by whom) to how it is delivered. This is not some futuristic vision: it's ha...
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.
Learn how IoT, cloud, social networks and last but not least, humans, can be integrated into a seamless integration of cooperative organisms both cybernetic and biological. This has been enabled by recent advances in IoT device capabilities, messaging frameworks, presence and collaboration services, where devices can share information and make independent and human assisted decisions based upon social status from other entities. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Michael Heydt, founder of Seamless...
The IoT's basic concept of collecting data from as many sources possible to drive better decision making, create process innovation and realize additional revenue has been in use at large enterprises with deep pockets for decades.

WebRTC: together these advances have created a perfect storm of technologies that are disrupting and transforming classic communications models and ecosystems. In his session at WebRTC Summit, Cary Bran, VP of Innovation and New Ventures at Plantronics and PLT Labs, provided an overview of this technological shift, including associated business and consumer communications impacts, and opportunities it may enable, complement or entirely transform.
There are so many tools and techniques for data analytics that even for a data scientist the choices, possible systems, and even the types of data can be daunting. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Chris Harrold, Global CTO for Big Data Solutions for EMC Corporation, showed how to perform a simple, but meaningful analysis of social sentiment data using freely available tools that take only minutes to download and install. Participants received the download information, scripts, and complete end-t...
For manufacturers, the Internet of Things (IoT) represents a jumping-off point for innovation, jobs, and revenue creation. But to adequately seize the opportunity, manufacturers must design devices that are interconnected, can continually sense their environment and process huge amounts of data. As a first step, manufacturers must embrace a new product development ecosystem in order to support these products.
Manufacturing connected IoT versions of traditional products requires more than multiple deep technology skills. It also requires a shift in mindset, to realize that connected, sensor-enabled “things” act more like services than what we usually think of as products. In his session at @ThingsExpo, David Friedman, CEO and co-founder of Ayla Networks, discussed how when sensors start generating detailed real-world data about products and how they’re being used, smart manufacturers can use the dat...
When it comes to IoT in the enterprise, namely the commercial building and hospitality markets, a benefit not getting the attention it deserves is energy efficiency, and IoT’s direct impact on a cleaner, greener environment when installed in smart buildings. Until now clean technology was offered piecemeal and led with point solutions that require significant systems integration to orchestrate and deploy. There didn't exist a 'top down' approach that can manage and monitor the way a Smart Buildi...
