AOL is a global leader in digital video, currently serving tens of thousands of publishers, the vast majority of top global advertisers, and all of the top global holding companies. AOL has launched nearly 50 original series since 2011, and its library of curated and original video content is now distributed on 15 connected devices, including Apple TV. AOL Originals “Park Bench With Steve Buscemi” and “The Future Starts Here” by @TiffanyShlain received two Emmy® nominations earlier this month, validating its strategy of creating premium video content.

“Consumer video engagement is redefining media as we know it. AOL is at the forefront of bringing consumers the videos they want, where they want them and is creating an environment for advertisers to tell their story,” said Ran Harnevo, President of AOL Video. “Marta is a proven leader whose understanding of macro trends in advertising and technology will accelerate AOL's ability to link our consumer platforms to today's leading brands.”

Marta joined AOL in February 2013 as Head of Sales Strategy and Operations, leading AOL's specialist sales teams in development and packaging of global advertising solutions and guiding the development of sales force effectiveness initiatives.

Prior to joining AOL, Martinez served as Chief Marketing Officer at MediaMath, where she led business development, marketing and strategic partnership initiatives, representing Fortune 500 brands and over 900 advertising and media agencies globally. Prior to that, she was SVP, Global Corporate Development at Havas Digital where she led the group's executive and operational management in identifying and executing strategic development opportunities.

“My career has been about connecting global brands with content, technology and next generation marketing solutions,” said Martinez. “I am thrilled to bring this experience to AOL's video business and to enhance our ability to connect brand marketing strategies with the most robust advertising vehicle of today – video.”

Martinez earned her M.B.A. from Leonard N. Stern School of Business at New York University and Master in Science in Business Administration from ESADE in Barcelona.

IoT is at the core or many Digital Transformation initiatives with the goal of re-inventing a company's business model. We all agree that collecting relevant IoT data will result in massive amounts of data needing to be stored. However, with the rapid development of IoT devices and ongoing business model transformation, we are not able to predict the volume and growth of IoT data. And with the lack of IoT history, traditional methods of IT and infrastructure planning based on the past do not app...

Internet-of-Things discussions can end up either going down the consumer gadget rabbit hole or focused on the sort of data logging that industrial manufacturers have been doing forever. However, in fact, companies today are already using IoT data both to optimize their operational technology and to improve the experience of customer interactions in novel ways. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Gordon Haff, Red Hat Technology Evangelist, shared examples from a wide range of industries – including en...
In IT, we sometimes coin terms for things before we know exactly what they are and how they’ll be used. The resulting terms may capture a common set of aspirations and goals – as “cloud” did broadly for on-demand, self-service, and flexible computing. But such a term can also lump together diverse and even competing practices, technologies, and priorities to the point where important distinctions are glossed over and lost.
To get the most out of their data, successful companies are not focusing on queries and data lakes, they are actively integrating analytics into their operations with a data-first application development approach. Real-time adjustments to improve revenues, reduce costs, or mitigate risk rely on applications that minimize latency on a variety of data sources. Jack Norris reviews best practices to show how companies develop, deploy, and dynamically update these applications and how this data-first...

This culture and entrenched interests usually throw a wrench in the work...
