Germain and Simbrom frequently collaborated from separate East Northport offices. The decision to forge a strategic partnership and open a new office together was an easy one. "We felt there was a strong connection between our brands with Communication Strategy Group providing brand strategy, public relations and content marketing and Simbrom Creative providing visual strategy and creative development," says Germain. "We each bring a valuable perspective to client engagements, and those perspectives have created award-winning marketing programs for our respective clients."

The new Smithtown offices include a reception area, private executive offices, a large customer collaboration room, as well as a smaller conference room for private meetings. "It's in a central location for Hauppauge Industrial Park and other Long Island-based clients, and is a convenient location, accessible by plane, train or car for our NYC and other national clientele," says Simbrom.

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.
