House Party Unveils Mobile App for Easy and Instant Social Sharing

Allows One Million Plus Community Members to Connect With Favorite Brands Anytime, Anywhere -- and Share, Share, Share

IRVINGTON, NY -- (Marketwired) -- 05/07/14 -- Now you can bring the party with you. Leading social marketing company House Party, Inc. has released its mobile app, allowing the one million plus community members to connect with their favorite brands in more ways and more places than ever before. The app is available now at the iTunes App Store and will soon be available for Android devices.

House Party's new mobile app will more effectively connect House Party's robust digital platform to the physical product experience, driving content and social sharing that's timely, relevant and authentic. For partner brands, it will increase the already unparalleled user generated content and social sharing.

House Party's powerful platform drives consumer advocacy, at scale, to build brands and increase sales. A typical House Party campaign drives millions of earned media impressions, with thousands of photos and videos and hundreds of thousands of Facebook posts, tweets and other social media mentions. With the mobile app, consumers can engage with brands, and with each other, even more deeply and in real-time. Campaign participants can:

  • Browse and interact with real-time content streams from any campaign
  • Upload photos, videos and other content to campaigns, quickly and easily
  • Complete guided activities, including branded content creation, product reviews and more
  • Seamlessly share their content, activity and recommendations across social networks
  • Connect with other participants to share party ideas, chat about the featured brand and more
  • Set up their digital party page, invite guests and send updates
  • Find new House Party and Chatterbox campaigns

"We're excited about our app because it will provide significant value to our two favorite groups of people: our clients and our consumers," said House Party Chief Technology Officer Mike Hermus. "An enhanced user experience, with reduced friction for key engagement activities such as content creation and sharing, will enable a deeper connection with the brand, and facilitate better storytelling on its behalf. As a result, the same great House Party and Chatterbox campaigns will now generate more UGC and social reach than ever, ultimately resulting in even bigger brand and sales lifts."

With more than 30 Kubernetes solutions in the marketplace, it's tempting to think Kubernetes and the vendor ecosystem has solved the problem of operationalizing containers at scale or of automatically managing the elasticity of the underlying infrastructure that these solutions need to be truly scalable. Far from it. There are at least six major pain points that companies experience when they try to deploy and run Kubernetes in their complex environments. In this presentation, the speaker will detail these pain points and explain how cloud can address them.
The deluge of IoT sensor data collected from connected devices and the powerful AI required to make that data actionable are giving rise to a hybrid ecosystem in which cloud, on-prem and edge processes become interweaved. Attendees will learn how emerging composable infrastructure solutions deliver the adaptive architecture needed to manage this new data reality. Machine learning algorithms can better anticipate data storms and automate resources to support surges, including fully scalable GPU-centric compute for the most data-intensive applications. Hyperconverged systems already in place can be revitalized with vendor-agnostic, PCIe-deployed, disaggregated approach to composable, maximizing the value of previous investments.
When building large, cloud-based applications that operate at a high scale, it's important to maintain a high availability and resilience to failures. In order to do that, you must be tolerant of failures, even in light of failures in other areas of your application. "Fly two mistakes high" is an old adage in the radio control airplane hobby. It means, fly high enough so that if you make a mistake, you can continue flying with room to still make mistakes. In his session at 18th Cloud Expo, Lee Atchison, Principal Cloud Architect and Advocate at New Relic, discussed how this same philosophy can be applied to highly scaled applications, and can dramatically increase your resilience to failure.
Machine learning has taken residence at our cities' cores and now we can finally have "smart cities." Cities are a collection of buildings made to provide the structure and safety necessary for people to function, create and survive. Buildings are a pool of ever-changing performance data from large automated systems such as heating and cooling to the people that live and work within them. Through machine learning, buildings can optimize performance, reduce costs, and improve occupant comfort by sharing information within the building and with outside city infrastructure via real time shared cloud capabilities.
