Custom Content Council Presents TMG’s Jane Ottenberg with John Caldwell Lifetime Achievement Award

TMG co-CEO Jane Ottenberg was this year’s recipient of the Custom Content Council’s John Caldwell Lifetime Achievement Award at a ceremony in New York Monday evening. This prestigious award is presented to someone who has made significant contributions to the custom content industry through leadership and by successfully using custom media as a marketing channel and demonstrating a standard for work that exhibits excellence in custom content.

It’s almost impossible to measure Jane’s contribution to and influence on the industry. She started TMG Custom Media with her partner Richard Creighton in 1981 with one client and one magazine, long before “custom content” became a popular term. Today, TMG employs more than 100 people and serves more than 50 clients in its Washington, D.C., and New York City offices.

“Jane is the perfect example of someone motivated by passion, whose leadership has built and sustained a thriving company that continues to lead in the custom content space,” said Kate Ottenberg, TMG’s head of video, who presented Jane the award.

TMG is recognized by its clients and competitors as one of the country’s top custom content agencies because of its outstanding quality; strongly measured results in digital, print and social media; and unusually long-term relationships. Most of the clients who worked with TMG during its first year of business are still clients today.

“Jane has an incredible understanding of clients and content and an exceptional eye for design,” said TMG co-CEO Richard Creighton. “Today, she continues to energize client, employee and personal meetings in a way that engages all around her. It’s impossible not to like her, yet at the same time, she demands excellence and stretches her co-workers to produce their best,” Creighton continued. “On top of that, she has been an astute businesswoman, building financial returns for TMG’s clients and for the company itself.”

“Even 30 years later, Jane never settles for what is; she’s always searching for what’s next. In a world where women and men are challenged to have it all, she has managed to be there for her family, TMG, its clients and numerous charitable organizations,” said Kate Ottenberg, who is Jane’s daughter, in her remarks.

“Looking back,” continued Kate Ottenberg, “I think Jane must have had some secret super-human strength to be this powerful, smart and savvy businesswoman by day, then rush home every evening to make a gourmet meal for four unsuspecting children, complete with music and votive candles—and then proceed to talk about their lives, sports, school, etc., all evening long.”

“I was fortunate enough to have known John Caldwell as a friend and colleague and am so honored to help carry on his legacy with this award,” said Jane Ottenberg. “I share this award with my amazing partner in business and in life, Richard Creighton.”

TMG staff also surprised Jane with a video that aired at the ceremony. View the video here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=aIwSb7944KI&feature=youtu.be

DevOps is under attack because developers don’t want to mess with infrastructure. They will happily own their code into production, but want to use platforms instead of raw automation. That’s changing the landscape that we understand as DevOps with both architecture concepts (CloudNative) and process redefinition (SRE). Rob Hirschfeld’s recent work in Kubernetes operations has led to the conclusion that containers and related platforms have changed the way we should be thinking about DevOps and...

Companies are harnessing data in ways we once associated with science fiction. Analysts have access to a plethora of visualization and reporting tools, but considering the vast amount of data businesses collect and limitations of CPUs, end users are forced to design their structures and systems with limitations. Until now. As the cloud toolkit to analyze data has evolved, GPUs have stepped in to massively parallel SQL, visualization and machine learning.

Enterprises are adopting Kubernetes to accelerate the development and the delivery of cloud-native applications. However, sharing a Kubernetes cluster between members of the same team can be challenging. And, sharing clusters across multiple teams is even harder. Kubernetes offers several constructs to help implement segmentation and isolation. However, these primitives can be complex to understand and apply. As a result, it’s becoming common for enterprises to end up with several clusters. Thi...
