Award of Excellence in the External Communications & Communities Category, Technology Innovation Division of the Society for New Communications Research Excellence in New Communications Awards program. The prestigious awards program honors individuals and organizations that are pioneering the use of social media and Internet communications technologies (ICT). Symposium & Awards Gala held at Harvard University’s Faculty Club on November 3-4, 2011.
Thomson Reuters was introducing new microsites, a revamped corporate website and new blog destinations, and also wished to run dynamic display ads in both third-party websites and mobile apps. Their key desire was to create compelling and engaging destination sites that target audiences would find valuable in their everyday work and would highlight the extraordinary capabilities of Thomson Reuter's constituent organizations.
Daylife's Publisher Suite was put to work to power many aspects of the various destination sites created by Thomson Reuters. First, Thomson Reuters leveraged the Daylife media cloud to source and aggregate content from its dozens of companies around the world. The media cloud made this content "smarter" by identifying underlying metadata and then categorizing it. Daylife algorithms can also determine how one piece of content -- whether a blog post, a video, a PowerPoint deck or a photo -- relates to other content.
Curators in Thomson Reuters' corporate marketing department then went to work selecting the Apps they wanted to use to fill out pages of content -- Apps that would be constantly-updating as new, relevant content became available...In addition to the top award winners in each division and category, Commendations of Merit and Commendations of Excellence were presented to nearly 25 other organizations that submitted case studies in the awards program.
