Bulldog Solutions' Client Named 2013 Killer Content Award Winner

SunGard recognized for design and execution of content marketing programs

AUSTIN, Texas, April 26, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Bulldog Solutions today announced that SunGard Availability Services was awarded winner for "best theme" at this year's second annual "Killer Content Awards: Honoring the World's Best B2B Content Marketing Programs." The Killer Content Awards are a venue for recognizing and honoring the world's finest B2B marketing organizations. The award was presented on Monday, April 22, at the Times Center in New York City during the 2013 B2B Content2Conversion Conference. The educational and networking event focused on helping B2B marketers develop, map, measure and optimize content marketing strategies.

SunGard's challenge was to generate awareness by creating content that would rise above the usual white noise in B2B marketing and get noticed immediately. At the same time, they wanted to demonstrate to IT professionals how they could benefit from the Cloud while fully protecting their data and applications. "Creating compelling content that raises a brand above the noise and connects with the target audience is critical to a successful B2B marketing plan," said Craig Tomlin, account director for Bulldog Solutions. 

The SunGard marketing team engaged with Bulldog Solutions to create an infographic and E-book campaign that used two parallel themes—"How to Survive a Zombie Attack" and "How to Move to the Cloud" —to be launched around Halloween. The key sign of success would be the sharing and displaying of the infographic on influential third-party cloud-based sites.

The results of the Zombie campaign were extraordinary. The campaign launched just before Halloween and yielded more than triple the expected downloads, double the expected open and click-through rates, and was even featured prominently on the home pages of several influential niche cloud websites.

"We were thrilled to learn that SunGard Availability Services' marketing team was being recognized for its innovative marketing tactics and engagement efforts," said Christine Nurnberger, vice president of Marketing for SunGard Availability Services. "While we focus on offering our clients the best-in-class disaster recovery and business continuity solutions, we rely heavily on creative marketing efforts to help inform existing and potential customers of our newest technology and services available."

Bulldog Solutions was also a finalist with SunGard in this year's "Revvie" awards for providing an innovative campaign architecture that made a dramatic impact on overall program performance. The "Revvies" celebrate the accomplishments and expertise of customers and partners using Marketo's software solutions. Leveraging the power of marketing automation, SunGard and Bulldog Solutions implemented a program that both targeted and spoke to prospects in a far more precise and meaningful way, which resulted in deeper and more meaningful conversations.

When growing capacity and power in the data center, the architectural trade-offs between server scale-up vs. scale-out continue to be debated. Both approaches are valid: scale-out adds multiple, smaller servers running in a distributed computing model, while scale-up adds fewer, more powerful servers that are capable of running larger workloads. It’s worth noting that there are additional, unique advantages that scale-up architectures offer. One big advantage is large memory and compute capacity...
