LONDON, April 3, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Ve Interactive, the leading provider of conversion solutions for the e-commerce industry, today announced that it has completed a multi-million dollar acquisition of adGENIE, Europe's first dynamic prospecting and retargeting advertising solution provider.
Integration of the adGENIE solutions into the Ve Platform will now augment Ve's cross channel capabilities to include ad delivery, dynamic prospecting and retargeting.

Said David J. Brown Co Founder & CEO of Ve: "This landmark integration will provide our clients with a consolidated dashboard view of these complementary disciplines. The resulting insight into customer journeys will be unparalleled, enabling digital marketers to do their job far more effectively and efficiently."

Our clients will also benefit from Ve's international infrastructure, in-house design team, VeLabs development division, dedicated R&D department and account management team."
The expanded Ve offering will now be extended across Ve's 3,500 global client base and the new, unique view of amalgamated purchase-intent data generated is anticipated to transform the digital marketing industry. Said Brown: "Going forward, e-commerce sites will, for the first time, have access to valuable insight on a single platform, that will help them identify new strategic areas of opportunity within both disciplines of advertising and optimization."

When an enterprise builds a hybrid IaaS cloud connecting its data center to one or more public clouds, security is often a major topic along with the other challenges involved. Security is closely intertwined with the networking choices made for the hybrid cloud.

The Internet of Things (IoT) is nothing if not an endless proliferation of details. It's the vision of a world in which continuous Internet connectivity and addressability is embedded into a growing range of human artifacts, into the natural world, and even into our smartphones, appliances, a...

This last trend is the IoT stack, which involves a new shift in the separation of what stuff happe...
