TaylorMade-adidas Golf Partners With Mass Relevance to Drive Real-Time Social Engagement Inside a Mosaic Social Hub

AUSTIN, TX -- (Marketwire) -- 02/01/13 -- Mass Relevance, the technology leader in social curation and integration, today announced that TaylorMade-adidas Golf has launched a Mosaic-styled social hub utilizing the Mass Relevance platform. Through Mass Relevance, TaylorMade offers consumers an engaging, interactive online destination that integrates real-time, brand-relevant social content from Twitter and Instagram.

The social hub experience -- which encourages participation and motivates visitors to join in the conversation -- includes editorial content from the brand along with Mass Relevance visualizations such as polls, photo walls and spotlight Tweets, all curated and re-displayed in real time.

"Through Mass Relevance, TaylorMade is able to integrate the most relevant and compelling social content from multiple sources into a single destination for consumers," said Sam Decker, founder and CEO of Mass Relevance. "The Mosaic social hub goes beyond simple streams to create dynamic visualizations that encourage content generation and amplification, and brings the TaylorMade brand to life in a new way. We're very excited to work with TaylorMade on this experience to drive social engagement."

The Mass Relevance platform breaks down the silo between social media and brand advertising to offer a new way to inspire consumers and bring their experiences into the center of the brand. Through Mass Relevance, brands can spark and guide consumer conversation by leveraging social media curated from sources such as Twitter, Instagram, Facebook, YouTube and Google+.

Experiences created on the Mass Relevance platform are:

  • Safe: Brands can now easily inspire consumers to generate and share relevant word of mouth from multiple mediums within a single, controlled experience that can be displayed across any digital endpoint.

  • Relevant: Real-time social content is updated based on automated rules or hand moderation to create a continuously fresh user experience.

  • Sharable: Both editorial brand content and user-generated content can be shared socially. Visualizations built into the experience facilitate content generation, enabling people to Tweet, post, or comment through the social platform of choice without leaving the branded site.

Microservices are a very exciting architectural approach that many organizations are looking to as a way to accelerate innovation. Microservices promise to allow teams to move away from monolithic "ball of mud" systems, but the reality is that, in the vast majority of organizations, different projects and technologies will continue to be developed at different speeds. How to handle the dependencies between these disparate systems with different iteration cycles? Consider the "canoncial problem"...
The Internet of Things is clearly many things: data collection and analytics, wearables, Smart Grids and Smart Cities, the Industrial Internet, and more. Cool platforms like Arduino, Raspberry Pi, Intel's Galileo and Edison, and a diverse world of sensors are making the IoT a great toy box for developers in all these areas. In this Power Panel at @ThingsExpo, moderated by Conference Chair Roger Strukhoff, panelists discussed what things are the most important, which will have the most profound...
Growth hacking is common for startups to make unheard-of progress in building their business.

In today's enterprise, digital transformation represents organizational change even more so than technology change, as customer preferences and behavior drive end-to-end transformation across lines of business as well as IT. To capitalize on the ubiquitous disruption driving this transformation, companies must be able to innovate at an increasingly rapid pace. Traditional approaches for driving innovation are now woefully inadequate for keeping up with the breadth of disruption and change facin...
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.
Cloud computing delivers on-demand resources that provide businesses with flexibility and cost-savings. The challenge in moving workloads to the cloud has been the cost and complexity of ensuring the initial and ongoing security and regulatory (PCI, HIPAA, FFIEC) compliance across private and public clouds. Manual security compliance is slow, prone to human error, and represents over 50% of the cost of managing cloud applications. Determining how to automate cloud security compliance is critical...
The Internet of Things (IoT) is growing rapidly by extending current technologies, products and networks. By 2020, Cisco estimates there will be 50 billion connected devices. Gartner has forecast revenues of over $300 billion, just to IoT suppliers. Now is the time to figure out how you’ll make money – not just create innovative products. With hundreds of new products and companies jumping into the IoT fray every month, there’s no shortage of innovation. Despite this, McKinsey/VisionMobile data...
Just over a week ago I received a long and loud sustained applause for a presentation I delivered at this year’s Cloud Expo in Santa Clara.

Over the next few days I had many more meaningful conversations and was not only happy with the results but also learned a few new things. Here is everything I learned in those three days distilled into three short points.
