NEW YORK, Feb. 26, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- L'Oreal Paris, the leading global beauty brand, introduces an unprecedented way to experience beauty with the official re-launch of LOrealParisUSA.com, which includes an exclusive, first-to-market content production and syndication partnership with AOL.

A full year in the making, LOrealParisUSA.com is the first major beauty site to be responsively designed for all devices– meaning users will experience a uniform, easy-to-navigate site whether they log on from their desktop, mobile phone or tablet. The site seamlessly transitions, instantly reformatting to provide users with a premium on-the-go experience, no matter when, where or how they choose to engage. Furthermore, the site will dynamically adapt to any future device, meaning the brand and its customers will never fall behind.

The site is a comprehensive service designed to deliver an ever-evolving level of personalization for each user and help her find her signature beauty looks.  It shares product and content recommendations based on stated characteristics, individual preferences and observed behavior. The site "remembers" this information, ultimately following each registered user's journey across devices. For example, if a user selects "green eyes" from her desktop computer, the site will suggest complementary cosmetic products and educational content on her phone while she's in the drugstore aisle.

"L'Oreal Paris' mission, as the leader in beauty product innovation, is to help women become their most confident and beautiful. Today we are applying the same expertise to our digital presence with the debut of the new LOrealParisUSA.com," says Karen T. Fondu, President of L'Oreal Paris USA.  "We know the way women shop and live is changing rapidly everyday so we created the ultimate digital beauty experience that seamlessly adapts to her needs. This is the first-ever personalized, totally responsive site that will revolutionize the way women experience beauty and help them become their own beauty expert."

Barry Wacksman, EVP, Chief Growth Officer at R/GA, the digital agency behind the site's re-launch, explains, "The new LOrealParisUSA.com was created using responsive design, so that no matter how users access the site, they will experience the same beautiful content." He continues, "The launch represents an extensive collaboration between L'Oreal Paris and R/GA, and by using the latest technologies to customize and optimize user experiences, we've built a best-in-class, device-friendly resource that adapts to fit every woman's preferences and needs."

FIND YOUR SIGNATURE BEAUTY:
In an age when beauty is increasingly about individuality, L'Oreal Paris brings users a fully-customizable online experience. At the heart of LOrealParisUSA.com is a service that offers tailored product suggestions (My Beauty Picks), fresh editorial content (Beauty Library) and advice from the world's leading beauty pros (Genius Tools and Consultations).  It is a go-to source for news, inspiration and expertise.

MY BEAUTY PICKS
Programmed to recognize and respond to all types of beauty preferences, LOrealParisUSA.com helps women identify the right products, regimens and looks for them based on their individual characteristics and current style inclinations. Instead of a complicated survey, the new site offers a highly-visual dashboard that allows users to enter personal information effortlessly. If a user feels glamorous one day but adventurous the next, she can easily change her style preference to receive updated product picks and information. LOrealParisUSA.com even registers the current weather forecast and shares product suggestions and expert tips for fighting frizz on a rainy day or preventing a makeup meltdown in the heat.

BEAUTY LIBRARY
LOrealParisUSA.com is an unparalleled resource for beauty trends and how-to's. With an extensive collection of articles and engaging videos that can be filtered by category, the site's Beauty Library allows women to explore products and research trends that inspire them. It features richly vibrant imagery and up-to-date content to read like a high-end online magazine.

L'Oreal Paris teamed up with AOL to ensure LOrealParisUSA.com is providing up-to-the minute, trend-focused beauty editorial.  This exclusive partnership includes content creation and syndication on AOL StyleList's "Beauty Bar" – a dedicated section of the site that will include L'Oreal Paris-driven articles, how-to videos and slideshows.

"We're thrilled to partner with such an iconic brand like L'Oreal Paris and are excited to help re-launch their site by providing high-quality content that will deliver personalized beauty tips, advice and more," says Brad Elders, SVP, East Coast Sales, AOL. "As the brand company, AOL is in the business of creating unique and tailored content for our clients. That, coupled with the power of our network, not only allows us the ability to create, but to also syndicate that content across our network on sites including StyleList.com."

GENIUS TOOLS & CONSULTATIONS
The online consultation suite features expert advice from L'Oreal Paris' roster of consulting beauty pros – including makeup artist Billy B., hair stylist Johnny Lavoy, dermatologist Dr. Gervaise Gerstner, nail expert Tom Bachik and hair colorist Christophe Robin. This section of the site also includes diagnostic tools for picking the right skincare regimen or perfect shade of hair color.

WebRTC sits at the intersection between VoIP and the Web. As such, it poses some interesting challenges for those developing services on top of it, but also for those who need to test and monitor these services. In his session at WebRTC Summit, Tsahi Levent-Levi, co-founder of testRTC, reviewed the various challenges posed by WebRTC when it comes to testing and monitoring and on ways to overcome them.
"A lot of times people will come to us and have a very diverse set of requirements or very customized need and we'll help them to implement it in a fashion that you can't just buy off of the shelf," explained Nick Rose, CTO of Enzu, in this SYS-CON.tv interview at 18th Cloud Expo, held June 7-9, 2016, at the Javits Center in New York City, NY.
Every successful software product evolves from an idea to an enterprise system. Notably, the same way is passed by the product owner's company. In his session at 20th Cloud Expo, Oleg Lola, CEO of MobiDev, will provide a generalized overview of the evolution of a software product, the product owner, the needs that arise at various stages of this process, and the value brought by a software development partner to the product owner as a response to these needs.
WebRTC services have already permeated corporate communications in the form of videoconferencing solutions. However, WebRTC has the potential of going beyond and catalyzing a new class of services providing more than calls with capabilities such as mass-scale real-time media broadcasting, enriched and augmented video, person-to-machine and machine-to-machine communications. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Luis Lopez, CEO of Kurento, introduced the technologies required for implementing these idea...
The WebRTC Summit New York, to be held June 6-8, 2017, at the Javits Center in New York City, NY, announces that its Call for Papers is now open. Topics include all aspects of improving IT delivery by eliminating waste through automated business models leveraging cloud technologies. WebRTC Summit is co-located with 20th International Cloud Expo and @ThingsExpo.

The Internet of Things will challenge the status quo of how IT and development organizations operate. Or will it? Certainly the fog layer of IoT requires special insights about data ontology, security and transactional integrity. But the developmental challenges are the same: People, Process and Platform. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Craig Sproule, CEO of Metavine, demonstrated how to move beyond today's coding paradigm and shared the must-have mindsets for removing complexity from the develop...
While not quite mainstream yet, WebRTC is starting to gain ground with Carriers, Enterprises and Independent Software Vendors (ISV’s) alike. WebRTC makes it easy for developers to add audio and video communications into their applications by using Web browsers as their platform. But like any market, every customer engagement has unique requirements, as well as constraints. And of course, one size does not fit all. In her session at WebRTC Summit, Dr. Natasha Tamaskar, Vice President, Head of C...
Who are you? How do you introduce yourself? Do you use a name, or do you greet a friend by the last four digits of his social security number? Assuming you don’t, why are we content to associate our identity with 10 random digits assigned by our phone company? Identity is an issue that affects everyone, but as individuals we don’t spend a lot of time thinking about it. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Ben Klang, Founder & President of Mojo Lingo, discussed the impact of technology on identity. Sho...
DevOps is being widely accepted (if not fully adopted) as essential in enterprise IT. But as Enterprise DevOps gains maturity, expands scope, and increases velocity, the need for data-driven decisions across teams becomes more acute. DevOps teams in any modern business must wrangle the ‘digital exhaust’ from the delivery toolchain, "pervasive" and "cognitive" computing, APIs and services, mobile devices and applications, the Internet of Things, and now even blockchain. In this power panel at @...
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 ...
WebRTC is about the data channel as much as about video and audio conferencing. However, basically all commercial WebRTC applications have been built with a focus on audio and video. The handling of “data” has been limited to text chat and file download – all other data sharing seems to end with screensharing. What is holding back a more intensive use of peer-to-peer data? In her session at @ThingsExpo, Dr Silvia Pfeiffer, WebRTC Applications Team Lead at National ICT Australia, looked at differ...

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.
A critical component of any IoT project is what to do with all the data being generated. This data needs to be captured, processed, structured, and stored in a way to facilitate different kinds of queries. Traditional data warehouse and analytical systems are mature technologies that can be used to handle certain kinds of queries, but they are not always well suited to many problems, particularly when there is a need for real-time insights.
Big Data engines are powering a lot of service businesses right now. Data is collected from users from wearable technologies, web behaviors, purchase behavior as well as several arbitrary data points we’d never think of. The demand for faster and bigger engines to crunch and serve up the data to services is growing exponentially. You see a LOT of correlation between “Cloud” and “Big Data” but on Big Data and “Hybrid,” where hybrid hosting is the sanest approach to the Big Data Infrastructure pro...
Businesses are struggling to manage the information flow and interactions between all of these new devices and things jumping on their network, and the apps and IT systems they control. The data businesses gather is only helpful if they can do something with it. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Chris Witeck, Principal Technology Strategist at Citrix, discussed how different the impact of IoT will be for large businesses, expanding how IoT will allow large organizations to make their legacy applica...
