Mirror Image Internet and Resonate to Present “Big Data and the 2012 Presidential Elections” at IAB Ad Operations Summit

Mirror Image® Internet, a leading provider of edge computing, streaming and content delivery solutions, today announced that Joe Lichtenberg, vice president of Edge Computing, will co-present with Elaine Harvey, vice president of Software Engineering at Resonate, at the Interactive Advertising Bureau’s (IAB) Ad Operations Summit in New York City on Nov. 19, 2012. The presentation, “Big Data Takes Center Stage at the 2012 Presidential Election: A Lesson for Operations,” will examine how Big Data enables operations teams to precisely target audiences across any platform and achieve enormous impact.

“Political campaigns have many unique characteristics and singular challenges and in many ways they can be thought of as extremely high-speed brand campaigns,” said Lichtenberg. “In addition to dynamically customizing creative content, candidates need to adjust their overall messages as voters’ focus changes, as current events unfold and as their opponents maneuver relative to them.”

“Candidates only have months to establish their political ‘brand,’ make and adjust their policy and mobilize their audience,” continued Harvey. “To accomplish this, candidates need rapid, detailed and continuous feedback that only Big Data can supply to understand what is happening in their campaigns and why.”

The IAB Ad Operations Summit uncovers how evolving technologies and initiatives combine with display, mobile, TV, social and video operations to tackle the demands of today’s multiscreen world. The Interactive Advertising Bureau (IAB) is comprised of more than 500 leading media and technology companies that are responsible for selling 86 percent of online advertising in the United States.

As enterprises work to take advantage of Big Data technologies, they frequently become distracted by product-level decisions.

In his session at @BigDataExpo at @ThingsExpo, Andrew Warfield, CTO and Co-Founder of Coho Data, will dis...

This is impacting every aspect of the analytics profession from how data is mined (and by whom) to how it is delivered. This is not some futuristic vision: it's ha...

Most people haven’t heard the word, “gamification,” even though they probably, and perhaps unwittingly, participate in it every day.
