Havas PR Staff Scores Major Victory at PR News PR People Awards

Multi-Award-Winning Team Earns Further Honors in Social Media, Media Relations and Account Management, as Well as a Hall of Fame Induction

NEW YORK, Dec. 7, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Havas PR North America (@havaspr), the most awarded agency of its size in the U.S., added to its list of superlatives with wins in three categories, a newly elected spot in the Hall of Fame and an additional three honorable mentions at this year's industry-leading PR News PR People Awards.

  • Marian Salzman, agency CEO and noted trendspotter, was inducted into the PR News Hall of Fame. Salzman's widely read and highly regarded annual trends forecast will be the Dec. 12, 2012 (12-12-12) debut publication of Havas PR's e-publishing imprint 120M Books. Also in 2012, Salzman was one of a handful of PR jurors for the Clio Awards, on the international PR jury at the Cannes Lions International Festival of Creativity and a judge for the PRWeek Awards in the U.S. (the only person to do all three this year).
  • Dalton Dorne, Havas PR's chief marketing officer and social media maven was named Tweeter of the Year for her excellence in boosting the overall tweeting and social media presence of the agency (which, in large part thanks to Dalton, was recently named the third-most-social agency in the world by Sociagility).
  • Colleen Cleary, vice president and media relations specialist, was honored as the Media Relations Leader of the year for her impressive work with clients including Ford Warriors in Pink and Donna Karan's Urban Zen Foundation.
  • Sara Schwartz, an account executive who is embedded at Coty Inc.'s headquarters three-quarters of each week in service of Havas PR's work for the beauty leader's corporate communications, received Account Manager of the Year honors.

Havas PR staff also received honorable mentions in the following categories:

  • Janene Ferrara, Executive Vice President—PR Professional of the Year: Agency
  • Jody Sunna, Vice President—Account Director of the Year
  • Kate Urbach, Summer 2012 intern, currently a senior at James Madison University—Intern of the Year

"I am supremely proud of the staffers who were recognized by the industry for the great work and amazing results they achieve on a daily basis for our clients," said Salzman. "The Havas PR staff is consistently solid and terrifically innovative—which is one of the reasons we continue to win awards. And this is a particularly exciting time for us, as we build on the momentum we've gained and are fully engaged in our 12 Days of Havas giving initiative, which will culminate with the Dec. 12 launch of 120M Books, a digital imprint that will showcase the agency's innovative thinking and thought leadership."

120M Books, the publishing arm of Havas PR, is committed to independent and futuristic publication of brainfood for the thinking public. "120M" is code for "120 minutes' worth," our recipe for the smart reading meal. The first in a digital series, What's Next? will be released on Dec. 12, 2012 (12-12-12). It will be available digitally at all e-book retailers, including Amazon, Apple and Barnes & Noble. Readers can join the conversation on Twitter with #120MBooks and #whatsnext.

Smart Cities are here to stay, but for their promise to be delivered, the data they produce must not be put in new siloes. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Mathias Herberts, Co-founder and CTO of Cityzen Data, discussed the best practices that will ensure a successful smart city journey.
WebRTC sits at the intersection between VoIP and the Web. As such, it poses some interesting challenges for those developing services on top of it, but also for those who need to test and monitor these services. In his session at WebRTC Summit, Tsahi Levent-Levi, co-founder of testRTC, reviewed the various challenges posed by WebRTC when it comes to testing and monitoring and on ways to overcome them.
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.

Every successful software product evolves from an idea to an enterprise system. Notably, the same way is passed by the product owner's company. In his session at 20th Cloud Expo, Oleg Lola, CEO of MobiDev, will provide a generalized overview of the evolution of a software product, the product owner, the needs that arise at various stages of this process, and the value brought by a software development partner to the product owner as a response to these needs.

DevOps is being widely accepted (if not fully adopted) as essential in enterprise IT. But as Enterprise DevOps gains maturity, expands scope, and increases velocity, the need for data-driven decisions across teams becomes more acute. DevOps teams in any modern business must wrangle the ‘digital exhaust’ from the delivery toolchain, "pervasive" and "cognitive" computing, APIs and services, mobile devices and applications, the Internet of Things, and now even blockchain. In this power panel at @...

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.
The cloud market growth today is largely in public clouds.

What are the key differences between wh...
WebRTC has had a real tough three or four years, and so have those working with it. Only a few short years ago, the development world were excited about WebRTC and proclaiming how awesome it was. You might have played with the technology a couple of years ago, only to find the extra infrastructure requirements were painful to implement and poorly documented. This probably left a bitter taste in your mouth, especially when things went wrong.
IoT is at the core or many Digital Transformation initiatives with the goal of re-inventing a company's business model. We all agree that collecting relevant IoT data will result in massive amounts of data needing to be stored. However, with the rapid development of IoT devices and ongoing business model transformation, we are not able to predict the volume and growth of IoT data. And with the lack of IoT history, traditional methods of IT and infrastructure planning based on the past do not app...
