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.

Predicted by Gartner to add $1.9 trillion to the global economy by 2020, the Internet of Everything (IoE) is based on the idea that devices, systems and services will connect in simple, transparent ways, enabling seamless interactions among devices across brands and sectors. As this vision unfolds, it is clear that no single company can accomplish the level of interoperability required to support the horizontal aspects of the IoE. The AllSeen Alliance, announced in December 2013, was formed with the goal to advance IoE adoption and innovation in the connected home, healthcare, education, aut...
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.
All major researchers estimate there will be tens of billions devices - computers, smartphones, tablets, and sensors - connected to the Internet by 2020. This number will continue to grow at a rapid pace for the next several decades. Over the summer Gartner released its much anticipated annual Hype Cycle report and the big news is that Internet of Things has now replaced Big Data as the most hyped technology. Indeed, we're hearing more and more about this fascinating new technological paradigm. Every other IT news item seems to be about IoT and its implications on the future of digital busines...

Trick question: What did Thomas Edison do for the lightbulb? He didn’t invent it – working light bulbs existed in laboratories for 80 years before Edison arrived. Instead, Edison's team made electric light scalable. They turned a theoretical possibility into a daily, lived reality – for billions of people. Today, we are at the same point for behavior change. Psychologists, economists, and other behavioral researchers have shown that it’s possible to nudge habits, but almost no one has been able to deliver sustainable, reliable behavior change at scale.
