Top CMOs Unite With Leading Advertising, Publishing, Digital, and Technology Executives During the 2014 Annual Bowling for Breastcancer.org Fundraiser at Lucky Strike Manhattan

Event Expected to Bring Together Record Numbers, Significantly Add to the $1.8 Million Raised to Date

NEW YORK, NY -- (Marketwired) -- 01/31/14 -- Thursday, February 13 will celebrate the fifth consecutive year when thousands of individuals across New York's interconnected advertising, publishing, and digital marketing space unite to bowl, raising awareness and funding for www.Breastcancer.org, the leading online resource for breast health and breast cancer information and support. To date, the Bowling for Breastcancer.org program has raised more than $1.8M US, supporting major Breastcancer.org initiatives: Spanish website translation, technology upgrades, and Breastcancer.org's global prevention program.

As awareness of Bowling for Breastcancer.org has grown, it has become the first "must-attend" fundraiser of the year, complete with a key partnership with The CMO Club and its CMO Club Cares Program (www.thecmoclub.com). This year's event participants will include many of the organization's established supporters alongside some very prominent new ones. Based on the club members' overwhelming interest and support of the cause, The CMO Club has brought CMOs right to the lanes as a way to attract agency, publisher, and technology company interest, helping to secure significant funding for Breastcancer.org.

According to Richy Glassberg, Medialets COO, Breastcancer.org Board Member, and NYC Bowling for Breastcancer.org event founder and co-chair, this year's Bowling for Breastcancer.org event is hoping to exceed previous years' goals. "The CMO Club founder Pete Krainik has brought CMOs right to the lanes as a unique way to secure participant interest at higher, more beneficial levels. This year, in addition to an opportunity to engage directly with CMOs during a private pre-event cocktail, sponsors of the event will also be able to network throughout the evening with at least one CMO who will participate as a member of their bowling team. We are also bringing back our successful lunches of a lifetime auction. People can actually bid on 30-minute engagement meetings with attending CMOs when auctioned off later in the evening. For example, we are pleased to announce that Rishad Tobaccowala, Chair Digitas LBi and Razorfish at Publicis Groupe will be a part of this year's auction."

The CMO Club Founder Peter Krainik stated, "Securing support from prominent CMOs across our member base of over 800 was effortless. The CMO Club's mission is to provide a platform for peer-based problem solving and support, and breast cancer affects all of us directly or indirectly. When members learned about the event, many raised their hands immediately in support. Proudly, over a dozen chief marketing officers have agreed to serve as team leaders and will bowl with their digital advertising partners."

Bowling for Breastcancer.org will host senior marketing executives from The CMO Club, including members representing Time Warner Cable, JP Morgan, La Prairie, The Camuto Group, Chase, Unique Photo, Tough Mudder, WWE, Warner Brothers, Thomson Reuters and IBM, among others.

Glassberg added, "We are also proud to announce our current, dedicated sponsors, including 4INFO, A+E Networks, AMC, AOL, BlastPR, comScore, Dstillery, FOX, GfK MRI, GSN, Jumpstart Automotive Group, Krux, Mailonline, Medialets, MediaLink LLC, Millennial Media, NBCU, Nielsen, PlaceIQ, Remedy Health, Resonate Insights, RocketFuel, Simulmedia, Tremor Media, Turner Broadcasting, Viacom Media Networks, Weight Watchers, [x+1] and Yahoo!."

Breastcancer.org is thrilled by the outpouring of support and the continued success of the New York event. Hope Wohl, CEO, Breastcancer.org, explained, "As a nonprofit organization, we rely on fundraising events such as Bowling for Breastcancer.org to sustain the organization so we can better deliver on our mission. These contributions fund critical programs that reach people affected by breast cancer in a meaningful, necessary, and respectful way." Continued Wohl, "It's a privilege and honor to be engaged in such immensely important work."

Web Real-Time Communication APIs have quickly revolutionized what browsers are capable of. In addition to video and audio streams, we can now bi-directionally send arbitrary data over WebRTC's PeerConnection Data Channels. With the advent of Progressive Web Apps and new hardware APIs such as WebBluetooh and WebUSB, we can finally enable users to stitch together the Internet of Things directly from their browsers while communicating privately and securely in a decentralized way.
Amazon has gradually rolled out parts of its IoT offerings, but these are just the tip of the iceberg. In addition to optimizing their backend AWS offerings, Amazon is laying the ground work to be a major force in IoT - especially in the connected home and office. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Chris Kocher, founder and managing director of Grey Heron, explained how Amazon is extending its reach to become a major force in IoT by building on its dominant cloud IoT platform, its Dash Button strat...

Based on the presentation topics covered at the conference, as well as the general discussions heard between sessi...
For basic one-to-one voice or video calling solutions, WebRTC has proven to be a very powerful technology. Although WebRTC’s core functionality is to provide secure, real-time p2p media streaming, leveraging native platform features and server-side components brings up new communication capabilities for web and native mobile applications, allowing for advanced multi-user use cases such as video broadcasting, conferencing, and media recording.
Fifty billion connected devices and still no winning protocols standards. HTTP, WebSockets, MQTT, and CoAP seem to be leading in the IoT protocol race at the moment but many more protocols are getting introduced on a regular basis. Each protocol has its pros and cons depending on the nature of the communications. Does there really need to be only one protocol to rule them all? Of course not. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Chris Matthieu, co-founder and CTO of Octoblu, walk you through how Oct...
Major trends and emerging technologies – from virtual reality and IoT, to Big Data and algorithms – are helping organizations innovate in the digital era. However, to create real business value, IT must think beyond the ‘what’ of digital transformation to the ‘how’ to harness emerging trends, innovation and disruption. Architecture is the key that underpins and ties all these efforts together. In the digital age, it’s important to invest in architecture, extend the enterprise footprint to the cl...
Almost everyone sees the potential of Internet of Things but how can businesses truly unlock that potential.

A critical component of any IoT project is what to do with all the data being generated. This data needs to be captured, processed, structured, and stored in a way to facilitate different kinds of queries. Traditional data warehouse and analytical systems are mature technologies that can be used to handle certain kinds of queries, but they are not always well suited to many problems, particularly when there is a need for real-time insights.
One of biggest questions about Big Data is “How do we harness all that information for business use quickly and effectively?” Geographic Information Systems (GIS) or spatial technology is about more than making maps, but adding critical context and meaning to data of all types, coming from all different channels – even sensors.
