CAMBRIDGE, Mass., Jan. 23, 2013 /PRNewswire-iReach/ -- B2B marketers are evolving the way they target their audiences, and content marketing is quickly taking center stage. In fact, a recent B2B Marketing Survey from Curata, Inc. found that 87 percent of the 450 surveyed marketing professionals are using content marketing to drive their overall goals. In the 'Content Curation Look Book 2013' released today, Curata explores real-world examples of organizations successfully using one form of content marketing: content curation. Content curation, or the act of finding, organizing and sharing online content, is enabling busy marketers to leverage relevant, impactful content on the Web and to meet their marketing needs and feed their marketing channels.
The Oregon Wine Board (OWB), a semi-independent state agency that promotes Oregon's $3 billion wine industry, uses Curata to aggregate and curate news and information about the Oregon wine industry. OWB has developed a robust daily newsletter for wine consumers and its membership. OWB has become the trusted source of information about Oregon wine, according to Charles Humble, OWB's director of communications. "Since launching our Oregon Wine Newsroom, we are regularly syndicated by Google as a trusted news source. We have a small staff and this is something we could never have accomplished without Curata. Our members are thrilled with the results."
"As creating videos or publishing a blog become easier and easier – there really are no barriers to sharing content online anymore," according to Rohit Bhargava, Founder, Influential Marketing Group. "Yet all this content is creating a predictable problem: most of it is mediocre. If there's anything our one-button economy proves, it's that creating high-quality content worth reading, watching or sharing is harder than it seems. Some of the smartest and most forward-thinking brands today are turning to curation as a way to add value for customers by collecting the best and most useful content on a particular topic."
Allsalesforce.com provides news and information around the Web that relates to popular lead management software, Salesforce. According to Kevin Phelan, Managing Director of Allsalesforce.com, "Our sole purpose is to become the site-of-record for the Salesforce community." Through the use of curated content, the site is able to identify the best content and populate a well-organized website in order for readers to easily find and digest the information of interest.
"Curation is growing in popularity, and while we're pleased to see the industry develop and mature, education is still required for organizations to truly take advantage of the massive amount of available content," said Pawan Deshpande, Curata founder and CEO. "Our Content Curation Look Book pulls together some of the best examples of content curation around the Web, and is a great resource for companies of all industries looking to become thought leaders in a particular space. Curation is a strategic way to help B2B marketers cut through the clutter of online content and discover content that will help drive their overall content marketing objectives."

Too often with compelling new technologies market participants become overly enamored with that attractiveness of the technology and neglect underlying business drivers. This tendency, what some call the “newest shiny object syndrome” is understandable given that virtually all of us are heavily engaged in technology. But it is also mistaken. Without concrete business cases driving its deployment, IoT, like many other technologies before it, will fade into obscurity.

The exciting thing about the IoT industry is now these decisions can be better, faster, and smarter. Now ...

I recently attended and was a speaker at the 4th International Internet of @ThingsExpo at the Santa Clara Convention Center. I also had the opportunity to attend this event last year and I wrote a blog from that show talking about how the “Enterprise Impact of IoT” was a key theme of last year’s show. I was curious to see if the same theme would still resonate 365 days later and what, if any, changes I would see in the content presented.

Microservices are a very exciting architectural approach that many organizations are looking to as a way to accelerate innovation. Microservices promise to allow teams to move away from monolithic "ball of mud" systems, but the reality is that, in the vast majority of organizations, different projects and technologies will continue to be developed at different speeds. How to handle the dependencies between these disparate systems with different iteration cycles? Consider the "canoncial problem"...

Culture is the most important ingredient of DevOps. The challenge for most organizations is defining and communicating a vision of beneficial DevOps culture for their organizations, and then facilitating the changes needed to achieve that. Often this comes down to an ability to provide true leadership. As a CIO, are your direct reports IT managers or are they IT leaders? The hard truth is that many IT managers have risen through the ranks based on their technical skills, not their leadership ab...
