IDG Communications' Marketing Clients Earn Marketing Recognition

Five Awards Programs Cited Tech Companies for Their Digital Marketing Excellence

FRAMINGHAM, MA -- (Marketwire) -- 01/25/13 -- Avaya, Dell, HP, and Research in Motion (RIM) have been singled out for superior digital marketing and information programs created with IDG Communications. The honors include a year-long multimedia content and social marketing program for the HP Enterprise CIO Forum, The New Fulcrum Point site sponsored by Dell, and The Avaya Thought Leadership Forum.

Web Marketing Association Honors
The Web Marketing Association awarded Dell its B2B Standard of Excellence for the New Fulcrum Point produced through the collaboration of Dell, MediaCom, and IDG last year. The New Fulcrum Point tackled the challenge of information overload by putting the right content at the right time in the hands of IT decision-makers to give them "the power to do more." IT decision-makers accessed a unique content navigation system that filtered and customized a wide range of technology content. Information produced by bloggers, IDG, Dell, and research/analyst firms could be customized based on a visitor's company size, technology and business solutions of interest, and their vertical industry.

Social media interaction included a "Video Power Hour" built around questions from readers submitted via Twitter to a panel of experts, weekly Twitter chats, and social commentary related to a high-profile event for Dell at South by Southwest (SXSW) in Austin, TX in 2012.

Interactive Media Awards
The Interactive Media Awards (IMA) also recognized The New Fulcrum Point with two awards in 2012: Outstanding Achievement B2B and Outstanding Achievement in Social Networking.

In late 2011, IMA recognized Avaya/IDG Thought Leadership Forum for Outstanding Achievement in the Computer Hardware category. The Avaya Thought Leadership Forum site focused on brand awareness and thought leadership. The campaign objectives were to increase brand awareness, perception, and purchase consideration by IT buyers. Avaya is a global leader in enterprise communications systems, software, and services covering unified communications, contact center, networking, and small business.

A key element of the Avaya campaign was the CIO Debate series featured in the Forum web site. IDG's CIO Executive Council recruited IT executives and produced videos each month that related to Avaya strategy and industry issues. The Forum program was built around four components: timely buyer research, a multimedia content experience, IT executive participation, and extended engagement across the social web.

The Avaya Thought Leadership Forum also earned an Honoree designation by judges for the prestigious Webby Awards. It was recognized in the IT Hardware/Software category. And, the Media Industry Newsletter (Min) gave the Forum honorable mention in Custom Publishing in Min's Integrated Marketing Awards program.

Wharton Honor for HP
Last fall in the first Social Media Leadership Awards program at the Wharton School at the University of Pennsylvania, the HP CIO Enterprise Forum was a finalist in the Advertising/Marketing category. The Forum is designed to raise the awareness of HP as a provider of IT enterprise solutions and services and as an industry thought leader. The program includes web sites in the US, UK, Germany, China, and Japan which provide a forum for "CIOs Driving Transformation." The sites were designed for IT executives to help them read about, discuss, and implement ways to succeed in business and government.

This peer-based Forum has now attracted more than 23,000 members who represent more than 70% of HP's major customers worldwide.

RIM Recognized
The Enterprise Mobile Hub (EMH) sponsored by RIM has been cited as a top 10 source for enterprise mobility news and information by the Mobile Device Management Solution Review. EMH joined established media sites such as Computerworld and CITEworld as top sources for mobile content. The EMH encourages IT pros and business leaders to discuss mobility issues, exchange ideas and collaborate with peers, experts, and market leaders.

IDG Marketing Services and the Social Web
The campaigns are built around IDG's core expertise in content marketing and services including creation, platform and prospect engagement optimization, and amplification of a marketer's messages on the social web. "IDG has been at the forefront of marketing services built around paid, owned, and earned media tactics in a cohesive way to accelerate the impact for our technology clients," said Charles Lee, senior vice president, Strategic Marketing Services & Custom Solutions, IDG Enterprise. "Our programs stimulate brand awareness, develop thought leadership credentials, and drive interactions with prospects across the web and social channels to unify marketers' messages regardless of the media."

When growing capacity and power in the data center, the architectural trade-offs between server scale-up vs. scale-out continue to be debated.

It’s worth noting that there are additional, unique advantages that scale-up architectures offer. One big advantage is large memory and compute capacity...
