NEW YORK, Jan. 15, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Play18 Solutions, one of the golf industry's fastest growing marketing and technology companies and the Sports Illustrated Golf Group (Golf Magazine, SI Golf Plus, Golf.com) today announced a media, marketing and commerce pact that will see Play18 Solutions become the official Tee Time service provider for Golf.com.
Beginning in 2014, visitors to Golf.com's home page will be able to buy Tee Times from one of Play18 Solutions' quickly expanding roster of courses and resorts. As part of the collaboration, the SIGG will provide marketing support for both Play18 Solutions and its golf course clients via its portfolio of print, digital, mobile and tablet products.
"This agreement is not only an incredible opportunity for Play18 Solutions but also for the golf course industry as it provides a much-needed remedy to the reliance on third-party distribution channels that are based on barter rounds," said Brett Darrow, founding partner and CEO of Play18 Solutions and founder and former CEO of GolfNow. "Now Play18 Solutions courses can sell their tee times through the world's most visited golf website, regain control of their pricing, customer data and substantially increase their marketing effectiveness while protecting their brand."
"We are excited about our partnership with Play18 Solutions," said Dick Raskopf, Publisher of SI Golf Group. "We have had the opportunity to partner with a variety of companies to provide a tee time booking solution on Golf.com. We have been hesitant up to this point because we wanted to partner with a company that not only could provide tee times but that would also help golf courses improve their financial position. We think we have found a great partner in Play18 Solutions. They are committed to the same ideals that we are. We look forward to working with Brett and his team."

More and more brands have jumped on the IoT bandwagon. We have an excess of wearables – activity trackers, smartwatches, smart glasses and sneakers, and more that track seemingly endless datapoints. However, most consumers have no idea what “IoT” means. Creating more wearables that track data shouldn't be the aim of brands; delivering meaningful, tangible relevance to their users should be. We're in a period in which the IoT pendulum is still swinging. Initially, it swung toward "smart for smar...

Fifty billion connected devices and still no winning protocols standards. HTTP, WebSockets, MQTT, and CoAP seem to be leading in the IoT protocol race at the moment but many more protocols are getting introduced on a regular basis. Each protocol has its pros and cons depending on the nature of the communications. Does there really need to be only one protocol to rule them all? Of course not.

The Internet of Things (IoT), in all its myriad manifestations, has great potential. Much of that potential comes from the evolving data management and analytic (DMA) technologies and processes that allow us to gain insight from all of the IoT data that can be generated and gathered. This potential may never be met as those data sets are tied to specific industry verticals and single markets, with no clear way to use IoT data and sensor analytics to fulfill the hype being given the IoT today.
