BEAVERTON, OR -- (Marketwired) -- 03/25/14 -- Act-On Software, a leading provider of cloud-based integrated marketing automation software, today announced that circle S studio, a digital marketing and design firm, has adopted Act-On for Agencies to enhance its own lead generation and content marketing programs as well as that of its clients. With Act-On, circle S studio has been able to strengthen its online marketing skills and services, helping to advance the agency's overall strategic direction.
Act-On for Agencies provides circle S studio with the flexibility to manage multiple client accounts, provision resources, and share assets across accounts using a single dashboard. The platform has also allowed the agency to control marketing automation on behalf of its clients.
"With Act-On, we don't have to ask our clients to go out and purchase marketing automation software on their own," remarks Tim Asimos, VP & Director of Digital Innovation at circle S studio. "Our clients don't speak the language of tech, and marketing automation is a term that doesn't mean anything to most of them."
Since rolling out the Act-On platform a year ago, circle S studio has seen tremendous results. "The seeds we planted are beginning to sprout. We're seeing a lot more leads, a lot more opportunities and wins coming in the door," said Tim. The agency credits its 400 percent increase in web traffic and improved efforts in content marketing to Act-On, and has used Act-On for Agencies to disseminate emails, create landing pages and forms, distribute eBooks, and track website visitors.
On behalf of one such client, a financial firm, circle S studio uses Act-On forms to see how their customers interact and engage with specific content; in doing this, the firm can easily tailor its outreach to actions taken and services requested -- accomplishing in a few keystrokes what might otherwise have required months of due diligence.
Act-On's comprehensive functionality enables circle S studio to graduate its clients from an elementary level of email marketing to an integrated approach to marketing that includes lead scoring, lead nurturing, social publishing, and campaign analysis.
Act-On has successfully helped circle S studio to bring clarity to chaos when it comes to multi-channel marketing and reporting, and has enabled the agency's clients to prioritize efficiency and effectiveness.
Concludes Tim, "Act-On has the power of the big boys, but it's easy to get started and it's a minimal financial investment. You get the support that lets you hit the ground running."

With billions of sensors deployed worldwide, the amount of machine-generated data will soon exceed what our networks can handle. But consumers and businesses will expect seamless experiences and real-time responsiveness. What does this mean for IoT devices and the infrastructure that supports them? More of the data will need to be handled at - or closer to - the devices themselves.

In recent years, containers have taken the world by storm. Companies of all sizes and industries have realized the massive benefits of containers, such as unprecedented mobility, higher hardware utilization, and increased flexibility and agility; however, many containers today are non-persistent. Containers without persistence miss out on many benefits, and in many cases simply pass the responsibility of persistence onto other infrastructure, adding additional complexity.

DevOps is often described as a combination of technology and culture. Without both, DevOps isn't complete. However, applying the culture to outdated technology is a recipe for disaster; as response times grow and connections between teams are delayed by technology, the culture will die. A Nutanix Enterprise Cloud has many benefits that provide the needed base for a true DevOps paradigm.

Back in February of 2017, Andrew Clay Schafer of Pivotal tweeted the following: “seriously tho, the whole software industry is stuck on deployment when we desperately need architecture and telemetry.” Intrigue in a 140 characters. For me, I hear Andrew saying, “we’re jumping to step 5 before we’ve successfully completed steps 1-4.”

All organizations that did not originate this moment have a pre-existing culture as well as legacy technology and processes that can be more or less amenable to DevOps implementation. That organizational culture is influenced by the personalities and management styles of Executive Management, the wider culture in which the organization is situated, and the personalities of key team members at all levels of the organization. This culture and entrenched interests usually throw a wrench in the work...
