SAN BRUNO, CA -- (Marketwired) -- 05/21/13 -- San Francisco is the epicenter of marketing technology this week as Responsys, Inc.

Featuring presentations and keynotes from inspirational speakers and some of the most respected brands in the world, Responsys Interact 2013 begins today and runs through May 23 at the San Francisco Marriott Marquis.

"Interact 2013 is all about inspiring marketers to move beyond the traditional notion of 'the campaign' and move towards truly automated, individualized and cross-channel interactions that work for companies and consumers alike," said Scott Olrich, President, Marketing and Platform at Responsys. "As the era of mass-marketing, or what we refer to as the 'campaign era,' draws to a close, Interact 2013 will highlight the future of marketing: personalized interactions across the digital channels at a scale like never before."

Centered around the relationship era of marketing, the three-day conference features keynote presentations from some of the most respected names in digital marketing, including: Toby Fallsgraff, Email Director for Obama for America 2012; Bob Garfield, author of Can't Buy Me Like and co-host of NPR's On the Media; Rob Brosnan, Senior Analyst at Forrester Research; Augie Ray, former Forrester Research analyst and thought leader on digital and social media strategies; and a panel discussion on the "Shared Economy" featuring Airbnb, TaskRabbit and Zipcar, to be moderated by Tomio Geron from Forbes Magazine. Responsys customers, including MetLife, National Geographic, Nordstrom, Orbitz, QuickenLoans and Thomson Reuters will also be featured on the main stage.

In the spirit of challenging, inspiring and energizing attendees with actionable strategies for taking their marketing programs to new levels, Interact 2013 will also feature:

  • Technology for the Relationship Era: Responsys will unveil new platform innovations that redefine the way companies market to customers across the digital channels of email, mobile, social, display and the web.

  • Inspirational Stories: Chesley B. "Sully" Sullenberger, III, the US Airways pilot who successfully landed Flight 1549 on the Hudson River in 2009, will inspire attendees with his message of taking action in the face of crisis, and Bert Jacobs, co-founder and Chief Executive Optimist of the Life is good® Company, will share how optimism, positivity and a passion for doing good can build a successful brand.

  • Opportunities to Give Back: At Interact 2012, Responsys kicked off its partnership with charity: water and to date has raised roughly $100,000 for the non-profit organization bringing clean, safe drinking water to people in developing nations. At Interact 2013, Paull Young, Director of Digital at charity: water, will provide an update on the projects Responsys has funded and attendees will have opportunities to contribute to charity: water, as well as other charitable causes.

  • A Rocking Good Time: Attendees will network with the world's best digital marketers and get a front row seat to a private concert with Michael Franti, the musician that's "known for mixing rock, rap, reggae, soul and other styles into a musical gumbo all his own."

In most cases, it is convenient to have some human interaction with a web (micro-)service, no matter how small it is. A traditional approach would be to create an HTTP interface, where user requests will be dispatched and HTML/CSS pages must be served. This approach is indeed very traditional for a web site, but not really convenient for a web service, which is not intended to be good looking, 24x7 up and running and UX-optimized. Instead, talking to a web service in a chat-bot mode would be muc...
It's easy to assume that your app will run on a fast and reliable network. The reality for your app's users, though, is often a slow, unreliable network with spotty coverage. What happens when the network doesn't work, or when the device is in airplane mode? You get unhappy, frustrated users. An offline-first app is an app that works, without error, when there is no network connection.

As someone who has been dedicated to automation and Application Release Automation (ARA) technology for almost six years now, one of the most common questions I get asked regards Platform-as-a-Service (PaaS). Specifically, people want to know whether release automation is still needed when a PaaS is in place, and why. Isn't that what a PaaS provides? A solution to the deployment and runtime challenges of an application? Why would anyone using a PaaS then need an automation engine with workflow ...

More and more companies are looking to microservices as an architectural pattern for breaking apart applications into more manageable pieces so that agile teams can deliver new features quicker and more effectively. What this pattern has done more than anything to date is spark organizational transformations, setting the foundation for future application development. In practice, however, there are a number of considerations to make that go beyond simply “build, ship, and run,” which changes ho...

As enterprises work to take advantage of Big Data technologies, they frequently become distracted by product-level decisions. In most new Big Data builds this approach is completely counter-productive: it presupposes tools that may not be a fit for development teams, forces IT to take on the burden of evaluating and maintaining unfamiliar technology, and represents a major up-front expense. In his session at @BigDataExpo at @ThingsExpo, Andrew Warfield, CTO and Co-Founder of Coho Data, will dis...
