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.

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...
Enthusiasm for the Internet of Things has reached an all-time high. In 2013 alone, venture capitalists spent more than $1 billion dollars investing in the IoT space. With "smart" appliances and devices, IoT covers wearable smart devices, cloud services to hardware companies. Nest, a Google company, detects temperatures inside homes and automatically adjusts it by tracking its user's habit. These technologies are quickly developing and with it come challenges such as bridging infrastructure gaps, abiding by privacy concerns and making the concept a reality. These challenges can't be addressed w...
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 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...

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.
