Beautiful Fall Colors are Showing – Time to Rake Up the Clips

CPfallAs the days get colder and the trees shed their beautiful autumnal hues, it’s a thrill to rake up our clients’ press clips from all over the media world and just cannonball into the pile. In this season of change, it’s a treat to observe through this gathering of clips how we’re getting our clients’ compelling stories out there – and it sure beats yard work. Fresh off the mighty PR oak that is Clement | Peterson, here are just some of the highlights of what our clients have been up to.

With our client Opengear we’ve been telling their story of how out-of-band management is getting smarter. In Pipeline Magazine, Opengear explained why fog computing will deliver the intelligence that networks need to implement the future where all of us are awash in helpfully connected Internet of Things devices. Opengear also let Enterprise Innovation know how network intelligence benefits the retail sector, where uptime is money. And Opengear CEO Rick Stevenson helped Data Center Knowledge recognize networking smarts with his piece on how to tell if your out-of-band management strategy passes the IQ test.

New client Akanda is all about simplifying OpenStack networking, as OStatic notes in a recent piece on the company’s platform update for OpenStack Liberty. Channel Insider took notice as well with a look at how Akanda addresses network orchestrations. SiliconAngle even went so far as to say Akanda supercharges its OpenStack networking service with its Liberty release, certainly welcome news for those eager for OpenStack networking that’s more manageable.

Mobile Device Management provider Beachhead continues to expand into Africa (where fall is spring – something we point out every equinox). Device security is the hot topic in Africa, where as BizCommunity notes, many countries are creating new laws to make companies better protect the data privacy of the individual customers they serve. Back stateside, Beachhead is working with MSPs and resellers as a ChannelPro vendor to watch, and looking out for them, as in this Business Solutions piece on why MSPs serving healthcare clients subject to HIPAA laws must be sure to be HIPAA compliant themselves.

DreamHost has been up to a little bit of everything, from earning an Excellent rating with PC Magazine for their web hosting, to championing OpenStack by talkin’ with Talkin’ Cloud about the crucial role to play for MSPs, to celebrating OpenStack’s birthday on FLOSS Weekly. DatacenterDynamics reported on DreamHost’s new data center space as well, positioning them for even more great stories going forward.

If you love mobile devices as much as everyone does, and you run an enterprise, RhoMobile (Zebra Technologies) is telling some incredible stories about advancing what is possible for enterprises deploying mobile devices to help make work more efficient. Zebra’s Mark Kirstein helps enterprises with this process with his piece in App Developer Magazine on choosing the right industrial mobility OS. Bhanu Morampudi, the President of the RhoMobile-using software development company Kutir Mobility, wrote about how powerful mobility apps are supplying the manufacturing industry with business solutions, appropriately enough in Business Solutions. Completing the picture, Pat Smith of Thompson Electric, an end user of a game changing field mobility app developed by Kutir Mobility using RhoMobile, did a Q&A with Field Technologies Online about their very positive experience.

This season is more of the same from Liferay, but the same is great when Gartner is naming you a leader in portals for the sixth year in a row. Liferay just wants to improve your digital experiences, with help from new partner Dynatrace, as CMSWire reports. Well not just that- Liferay also wants to make sure you have a successful enterprise IT platform rollout, and was glad to provide expert advice on doing so in Business Cloud News.

It’s been a season of change for a while now in the advertising industry, where the traditional brand agency model is being reimagined. But as digital marketing agency Wire Stone establishes in Forbes and CMO, change is good if you know how to adapt for the better. Wire Stone is also glad you’re able to click and read those articles without paying a subscription, because, as the company wrote for the American Marketing Association blog, gated content can be a barrier to marketing success.

Last but not least (and certainly our first thought when we’re hungry), the restaurant app AllSet – which lets users make reservations, pre-order and pre-pay so that food is delivered as soon as you arrive at the restaurant and you can leave whenever you want – absolutely devoured press attention with its promise of giving busy workers the chance to have a nice sit down meal on their timetable. Adweek’s Social Times took notice with coverage focusing on the app, as did AppAdvice, while local outlet SF Station described the app as making your relationship with lunchtime “more zen.” Finally, the local news team at KRON 4 did a segment following the experience of a real-life couple using the app, who (spoiler alert) did indeed enjoy a great meal and get back to work on time. It was the kind of uplifting PR that can leave you feeling warm inside all autumn long.
