Kaon Announces First Device-Agnostic Social Media Sharing Cards for Interactive 3D Product Apps

Engage Prospects and Drive More Sales by Easily Sharing 3D Interactive Models of B2B Products on LinkedIn, Twitter and Facebook

MAYNARD, MA -- (Marketwired) -- 10/22/13 -- Kaon Interactive, a leading provider of interactive 3D product marketing applications, today announced the Kaon Share Card, the first tool engineered to enable B2B marketers to quickly share interactive product marketing applications on social media networks such as Facebook, Twitter, and LinkedIn via any mobile device.

By using the Kaon Share Card, savvy marketers can now quickly educate their sales teams about their newest app creations or product launches by easily posting interactive mobile content on their existing social media networks. Sales teams can now tweet a Kaon Share Card of their product to potential customers that goes directly to a virtual 3D product model within their app. This results in the perfect "leave-behind," giving prospects access to their own self-driven 3D product experience or a direct link to access the model on any mobile device.

The Kaon Social Card includes:

  • The icon, title, and app description
  • Link to the Apple App store
  • Link to the Google Play store (for Android-enabled apps)
  • Link to the WebGL version (for WebGL-enabled apps)
  • Link to launch the app, if it is installed
  • Smart App Banner to go to the Apple Store, or to launch the App if installed
  • Twitter App Card enabled, so the Apple or Google Play store appears directly in tweets
  • Responsive design for a crisp experience on both Desktop and Mobile
  • Twitter "Tweet" button
  • Facebook "Recommend" button
  • LinkedIn "Share" button
  • Short simple URL

The Kaon 3D Product Apps allow users to interact with entire portfolios of virtual 3D products (that look and behave just like the actual product), along with supporting marketing content.

"As more companies are turning to social media to generate product awareness, they are looking for an ubiquitous tool that makes their interactive applications available everywhere," explained Dana Drissel, Senior Director of Marketing at Kaon Interactive. "Kaon has streamlined access to these applications to create a more memorable social marketing experience, allowing users to walk away with interactive product demonstrations on their personal mobile devices, which in turn increases their product knowledge retention and makes it more likely that they will buy."

The Kaon Social Share Card is the first of its kind to link directly to ALL downloadable versions of the App, regardless of mobile platform, so users can immediately access the iTunes Store or Google Play store depending on what mobile device they are using. Another social media capability now available is the integration of live feeds from Twitter, Facebook, and YouTube, making Kaon's interactive 3D Product Apps both a producer, and a consumer of, social media content.

Now that the world has connected “things,” we need to build these devices as truly intelligent in order to create instantaneous and precise results. This means you have to do as much of the processing at the point of entry as you can: at the edge. The killer use cases for IoT are becoming manifest through AI engines on edge devices. An autonomous car has this dual edge/cloud analytics model, producing precise, real-time results. In his session at @ThingsExpo, John Crupi, Vice President and Eng...
There are 66 million network cameras capturing terabytes of data. How did factories in Japan improve physical security at the facilities and improve employee productivity? Edge Computing reduces possible kilobytes of data collected per second to only a few kilobytes of data transmitted to the public cloud every day. Data is aggregated and analyzed close to sensors so only intelligent results need to be transmitted to the cloud. Non-essential data is recycled to optimize storage.
"I think that everyone recognizes that for IoT to really realize its full potential and value that it is about creating ecosystems and marketplaces and that no single vendor is able to support what is required," explained Esmeralda Swartz, VP, Marketing Enterprise and Cloud at Ericsson, in this SYS-CON.tv interview at @ThingsExpo, held June 7-9, 2016, at the Javits Center in New York City, NY.
Microservices are a very exciting architectural approach that many organizations are looking to as a way to accelerate innovation. Microservices promise to allow teams to move away from monolithic "ball of mud" systems, but the reality is that, in the vast majority of organizations, different projects and technologies will continue to be developed at different speeds. How to handle the dependencies between these disparate systems with different iteration cycles? Consider the "canoncial problem" ...

Keeping pace with advancements in software delivery processes and tooling is taxing even for the most proficient organizations. Point tools, platforms, open source and the increasing adoption of private and public cloud services requires strong engineering rigor - all in the face of developer demands to use the tools of choice.

My team embarked on building a data lake for our sales and marketing data to better understand customer journeys. This required building a hybrid data pipeline to connect our cloud CRM with the new Hadoop Data Lake. One challenge is that IT was not in a position to provide support until we proved value and marketing did not have the experience, so we embarked on the journey ourselves within the product marketing team for our line of business within Progress.

DevOps is often described as a combination of technology and culture. Without both, DevOps isn't complete. However, applying the culture to outdated technology is a recipe for disaster; as response times grow and connections between teams are delayed by technology, the culture will die. A Nutanix Enterprise Cloud has many benefits that provide the needed base for a true DevOps paradigm.
