DUBLIN, April 7, 2014 /PRNewswire/ --
Research and Markets (http://www.researchandmarkets.com/research/wzfgwv/social_tv_6th) have announced the addition of the "Social TV, 6th edition: Comprehensive Analysis of the Social TV Market" report to their offering.
In-depth analysis of the Social TV market in a comprehensive report
In the run-up to Twitter's IPO, Twitter and Facebook are locked in an increasingly fierce battle over the commercial future of Social TV - how television viewers discuss and engage with TV programming and advertising via social networks.
This spontaneous viewer behaviour, enabled by the boom in social media, smartphones and tablets, is impacting the global television-advertising ecosystem: ratings, tune-in, commercials, sponsorship, programming, formats and distribution.
The rival social networks are continuously launching multiple Social TV initiatives:
- Creating innovative Social TV features for their users
- Developing new business opportunities
- Striking key international partnerships with multiple broadcasters, advertisers and distributors
Twitter's Amplify product, for instance, shows its users instant replays of exciting sports highlights embedded in a tweet, and gains Twitter and the broadcaster revenue from sponsor pre-roll ads.
Broadcaster partners include CBS, NBCUniversal, Viacom (US and international), ESPN and TF1, with sponsors such as AT&T, Coke Zero, Ford, General Electric and Unilever.
Facebook's Public Feed and Keyword Insights data tools enable broadcasters to engage Facebook users by displaying their real-time reactions and opinions within TV shows, which also gives the social network valuable on-air promotion.
Partners include ABC, BSkyB, CNN, Fox Sports and NBC, for Dancing with the Stars, sports and news programming.

We all know that data growth is exploding and storage budgets are shrinking. Instead of showing you charts on about how much data there is, in his General Session at 17th Cloud Expo, Scott Cleland, Senior Director of Product Marketing at HGST, showed how to capture all of your data in one place. After you have your data under control, you can then analyze it in one place, saving time and resources.

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.

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.
