Ludia Partners with SessionM to Launch Mobile Loyalty Program Across All 2014 Titles

Ludia Integrates mPOINTS to Reward Players and Provide a Better Mobile Ad Experience

BOSTON, Feb. 3, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- SessionM, powering the loyalty program used by hundreds of leading mobile apps, today announced a partnership with Ludia, a leading publisher of mobile games. This partnership will integrate SessionM's loyalty program within all of Ludia's titles in 2014.  

In 2013, Ludia incorporated the SessionM platform into Family Feud & Friends on both iOS and Android platforms.  Based on the success seen from these integrations, Ludia is expanding the partnership to include their entire catalogue of games, including titles like Jurassic Park Builder and six upcoming titles coming out later this year.

"2014 is going to be an exciting year for Ludia as we release world class games based on powerful television and movie brands with a built in fan base," said Alex Thabet, CEO, Ludia. "SessionM has proven to be a valuable partner in helping us to reward these fans for playing more frequently, while attracting new valuable players, and increasing revenues with ad experiences that players actually enjoy."

Within Ludia's games, players will be able to collect mPOINTS for completing in-app milestones like reaching a new high score or leveling up.  mPOINTS can be earned across apps and are  redeemable for merchandise, gift-cards and contest entries.  Leveraging SessionM's developer API's, the experience will be customized for each game and seamlessly integrated into the gameplay experience.

The partnership will also provide Ludia with new advertising revenues from top brands who will be able to target power-players with rich media engagement ads that are non-interruptive and add tangible value to the experience.

Ludia will also be promoting their games across SessionM's network of apps in all categories reaching a potential audience of over 60 million monthly active users.  

"2014 promises to be a landmark year for Ludia based on their impressive release schedule," said Bill Clifford, Chief Revenue Officer, SessionM. "We're excited to help brand advertisers align themselves with their world class mobile content while enhancing the gameplay experience."

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.

As a result, it’s becoming common for enterprises to end up with several clusters. Thi...
