NEW ROCHELLE, N.Y., March 4, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Today Jagermeister launches its first-ever mobile app that cures the Fear of Missing Out syndrome (FOMO) many people experience when they are unable to participate in a night out with friends. Millennials across the country have active social lives, and they enjoy sharing their experiences with their vast digital networks. Jagermeister, the 7th largest premium spirit brand in the world and the number one selling imported liqueur in the United States, has finally found the solution with JagerBonds. The app transforms images and videos from multiple users' social media posts into a video highlight reel of a groups' night out with Jagermeister. For a spirit best known for connecting consumers with uncommonly great nights, this app is a digital first platform that connects consumers' on and offline experiences.
Celebrating the launch with a one-of-a-kind event experience, JagerBonds debuts tonight at The Raven in New York City where guests will toast with music legend Q Tip, who is providing the music for the evening. Attendees will be among the first to use the app resulting in an inherently share-worthy highlight video of each users' personal experience and "great night out with Jägermeister," that can be uploaded on the users' social platforms. Keeping with the Jagermeister's high-energy and social side, the app also allows uploaders to combine their individual night with other consumers and provides an innovative way for Jagermeister drinkers to capture the energy and feel of the time-honored Jagermeister night in a whole new way. While out having fun with Jagermeister, everyone involved in the Bonds can post photos and videos to Facebook or Instagram as usual—JagerBonds works in the background to compile the posts and pair them with songs from some of today's hottest artists, including Fall Out Boy, Eli Young Band and Paul Oakenfold.
The app will also be active in a partnership with WOVEN in Austin, Texas at the intersection of both the Interactive and Music weeks at SXSW. The WOVEN House will be open for five days at Trinity Hall in the heart of SXSW. WOVEN will launch a truly interactive platform that appeals to every sector of the music and tech audience. With up to three different music acts each night, JagerBonds will be at the ready to share the experience with friends across the country.
JagerBonds is available today for free download in the iTunes and Google Play stores to those of legal drinking age. Users connect the app to their Facebook and Instagram accounts, then invite the friends they are going out with to join uniquely coded "Bonds." While out having fun with Jagermeister, everyone involved in the Bonds posts photos and videos to Facebook or Instagram as usual—JagerBonds works in the background to compile the posts and pair them with songs from Jagermeister's long roster of music partners.
Jagermeister, which translates to "master hunter," is the #1 selling imported liqueur in the United States and one of the top shot brands in the world. The full-bodied flavor of Jagermeister, which includes cinnamon, star anise, ginger, orange and cardamom is a result of a lengthy maceration to extract aromatic compounds from a closely guarded recipe of 56 herbs, roots, blossoms and fruits, plus aging in oak casks for one year. The production process is exacting and includes sourcing the ingredients in their raw, unprocessed form, along with 383 quality checks to ensure its iconic taste profile. Jagermeister Liqueur is 35% Alc. /Vol. and imported exclusively by Sidney Frank Importing Company, Inc., New Rochelle, NY. Visit www.jager.com or www.facebook.com/JagerUSA for additional information.

Cognitive Computing is becoming the foundation for a new generation of solutions that have the potential to transform business. Unlike traditional approaches to building solutions, a cognitive computing approach allows the data to help determine the way applications are designed. This contrasts with conventional software development that begins with defining logic based on the current way a business operates. In her session at 18th Cloud Expo, Judith S. Hurwitz, President and CEO of Hurwitz & ...

It's easy to assume that your app will run on a fast and reliable network. The reality for your app's users, though, is often a slow, unreliable network with spotty coverage. What happens when the network doesn't work, or when the device is in airplane mode? You get unhappy, frustrated users. An offline-first app is an app that works, without error, when there is no network connection.

As enterprises work to take advantage of Big Data technologies, they frequently become distracted by product-level decisions. In most new Big Data builds this approach is completely counter-productive: it presupposes tools that may not be a fit for development teams, forces IT to take on the burden of evaluating and maintaining unfamiliar technology, and represents a major up-front expense. In his session at @BigDataExpo at @ThingsExpo, Andrew Warfield, CTO and Co-Founder of Coho Data, will dis...

In most cases, it is convenient to have some human interaction with a web (micro-)service, no matter how small it is. A traditional approach would be to create an HTTP interface, where user requests will be dispatched and HTML/CSS pages must be served. This approach is indeed very traditional for a web site, but not really convenient for a web service, which is not intended to be good looking, 24x7 up and running and UX-optimized. Instead, talking to a web service in a chat-bot mode would be muc...
