The 2112 Group and Incisive Media Partner to Extend IT Channel Media and Research Across the Atlantic

Port Washington, NY, January 05, 2013 --(PR.com)-- The 2112 Group, the U.S.-based provider of premium channel research and business services and publisher of Channelnomics (channelnomics.com), has partnered with Incisive Media, publisher of CRN UK and ChannelWeb.co.uk in the United Kingdom (and owner of the UK rights to the CRN name and trademark), to develop media and consultative products that span the trans-Atlantic technology marketplace to support and enable tens of thousands of IT resellers and integrators.

The 2112 Group will be the exclusive channel partner of Incisive Media in the United States, reselling and supporting products provided by CRN UK and ChannelWeb.co.uk through Channelnomics, including advertising, multimedia marketing tools and lead-generation offerings. Incisive will sell and support 2112 consultation, research and strategic content products and services in the United Kingdom. The two companies will collaborate on and create products and services that give IT vendors greater and more effective access to their partners in North America and Europe.

“The 2112-Incisive partnership, which will marry the resources of Channelnomics and CRN UK, will provide our clients with the opportunity to reach more resellers, systems integrators and service providers through one consolidated media and professional services provider,” said Lawrence M. Walsh, president and CEO of The 2112 Group. “No other channel media or professional services firm can provide the trans-Atlantic insights, marketing products or communications reach that 2112 and Incisive Media can together.”

The 2112 Group and Incisive are already working together on content syndication, in which Channelnomics, a leading channel business analytics publication in North America, and ChannelWeb.co.uk, the Web site of CRN UK, share news and analyses and collaborate on editorial strategies. In the coming year, the editorial teams of Channelnomics and CRN UK will develop jointly produced editorial products.

“Vendors are increasingly thinking globally, evaluating what territories they want to invest into. The tie-up between CRN UK and 2112 allows vendors to access information advising them how and where to invest, and to execute global channel programs, maximizing revenue streams,” said Alan Loader, group publisher of CRN UK.

Through the collaborative 2112-Incisive partnership, marketers can access products and services for North America and the United Kingdom. Together, The 2112 Group, Channelnomics, Incisive Media and CRN UK service a combined trans-Atlantic market of more than 100,000 IT resellers, managed services providers and systems integrators that drive more than half a trillion dollars in annual economic activity.

CRN UK and ChannelWeb.co.uk are not affiliated with brands published by UBM in the United States.

“With the channel driving increasing volumes of IT sales and economic activity, the services and support provided by 2112, Channelnomics and CRN UK are of critical importance to the success of vendors, distributors and solution providers,” Walsh said. “Together, 2112 and Incisive Media will create new and innovative means for helping our clients improve performance in their indirect sales.”

Wearable devices have come of age. The primary applications of wearables so far have been "the Quantified Self" or the tracking of one's fitness and health status. We propose the evolution of wearables into social and emotional communication devices. Our BE(tm) sensor uses light to visualize the skin conductance response. Our sensors are very inexpensive and can be massively distributed to audiences or groups of any size, in order to gauge reactions to performances, video, or any kind of presentation. In her session at @ThingsExpo, Jocelyn Scheirer, CEO & Founder of Bionolux, will discuss ho...
The true value of the Internet of Things (IoT) lies not just in the data, but through the services that protect the data, perform the analysis and present findings in a usable way. With many IoT elements rooted in traditional IT components, Big Data and IoT isn’t just a play for enterprise. In fact, the IoT presents SMBs with the prospect of launching entirely new activities and exploring innovative areas. CompTIA research identifies several areas where IoT is expected to have the greatest impact.
The 4th International Internet of @ThingsExpo, co-located with the 17th International Cloud Expo - to be held November 3-5, 2015, at the Santa Clara Convention Center in Santa Clara, CA - announces that its Call for Papers is open.

Every day we read jaw-dropping stats on the explosion of data. We allocate significant resources to harness and better understand it. We build businesses around it. But we’ve only just begun. For big payoffs in Big Data, CIOs are turning to cognitive computing. Cognitive computing’s ability to securely extract insights, understand natural language, and get smarter each time it’s used is the next, logical step for Big Data.
There's no doubt that the Internet of Things is driving the next wave of innovation. Google has spent billions over the past few months vacuuming up companies that specialize in smart appliances and machine learning. Already, Philips light bulbs, Audi automobiles, and Samsung washers and dryers can communicate with and be controlled from mobile devices. To take advantage of the opportunities the Internet of Things brings to your business, you'll want to start preparing now.

Cloud computing is now being embraced by a majority of enterprises of all sizes. Yesterday's debate about public vs. private has transformed into the reality of hybrid cloud: a recent survey shows that 74% of enterprises have a hybrid cloud strategy. Meanwhile, 94% of enterprises are using some form of XaaS – software, platform, and infrastructure as a service.
P2P RTC will impact the landscape of communications, shifting from traditional telephony style communications models to OTT (Over-The-Top) cloud assisted & PaaS (Platform as a Service) communication services.

In his session at Internet of @ThingsExpo, James Kirkland, Chief Architect for the Internet of Things and Intelligent Systems at Red Hat, described how to revolutioniz...
For IoT to grow as quickly as analyst firms’ project, a lot is going to fall on developers to quickly bring applications to market. But the lack of a standard development platform threatens to slow growth and make application development more time consuming and costly, much like we’ve seen in the mobile space. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Mike Weiner is Product Manager of the Omega DevCloud with KORE Telematics Inc., will discuss the evolving requirements for developers as IoT matures and conduct a live demonstration of how quickly application development can happen when the need to comply...

In her keynote at @ThingsExpo, Manjula Talreja, VP of Cisco Consulting Services, will discuss IoE and the enormous opportunities it provides to public and private firms alike. She will share what businesses must do to thrive in the IoE economy, citing examples from several industry sector...
Container frameworks, such as Docker, provide a variety of benefits, including density of deployment across infrastructure, convenience for application developers to push updates with low operational hand-holding, and a fairly well-defined deployment workflow that can be orchestrated. Container frameworks also enable a DevOps approach to application development by cleanly separating concerns between operations and development teams. But running multi-container, multi-server apps with containers is very hard. You have to learn five new and different technologies and best practices (libswarm, sy...

It's the vision of a world in which continuous Internet connectivity and addressability is embedded into a growing range of human artifacts, into the natural world, and even into our smartphones, appliances, and physical persons. In the IoT vision, every new "thing" - sensor, actuator, data source, data con...
