SAN FRANCISCO, CA -- (Marketwire) -- 01/08/13 -- Cardlytics, the leading marketing and analytics platform, today announced plans to build its West Coast presence through a base in San Francisco. The company has leased office space in downtown San Francisco, and has begun building a team in marketing, sales, and mobile development.

As part of the expansion, Kasey Byrne has joined Cardlytics as Senior Vice President of Marketing, and will be based in San Francisco. A seasoned technology and digital media company executive, Byrne will be responsible for worldwide marketing, branding, advertising and communications.

Byrne has held senior executive and consulting positions in marketing and communications with a variety of technology and services companies, including serving as Chief Communications Officer for search marketing leader, Overture Services, prior to its acquisition by Yahoo! Most recently, she was Vice President of corporate marketing for Aktana, a pioneer in actionable analytics for sales force effectiveness.

"Kasey has an exceptional track record for marketing excellence," said Scott Grimes, Chief Executive Officer of Cardlytics. "We have built a unique and data-driven analytics platform, as well as a massive new channel for advertisers. Kasey joins as a perfect time as we expand our platform to even more retailers, restaurants, and other consumer-facing brands."

In conjunction with the opening of the office, Cardlytics has announced that it plans to build mobile product management and development expertise in San Francisco.

"We believe a key path for Cardlytics' future growth is through mobile," said Grimes. "We plan to leverage our existing marketing and analytics platform to build a mobile product that simply does not exist in the market today."

IoT & Smart Cities Stories
The deluge of IoT sensor data collected from connected devices and the powerful AI required to make that data actionable are giving rise to a hybrid ecosystem in which cloud, on-prem and edge processes become interweaved. Attendees will learn how emerging composable infrastructure solutions deliver the adaptive architecture needed to manage this new data reality. Machine learning algorithms can better anticipate data storms and automate resources to support surges, including fully scalable GPU-c...
Machine learning has taken residence at our cities' cores and now we can finally have "smart cities." Cities are a collection of buildings made to provide the structure and safety necessary for people to function, create and survive. Buildings are a pool of ever-changing performance data from large automated systems such as heating and cooling to the people that live and work within them. Through machine learning, buildings can optimize performance, reduce costs, and improve occupant comfort by ...
The explosion of new web/cloud/IoT-based applications and the data they generate are transforming our world right before our eyes. In this rush to adopt these new technologies, organizations are often ignoring fundamental questions concerning who owns the data and failing to ask for permission to conduct invasive surveillance of their customers. Organizations that are not transparent about how their systems gather data telemetry without offering shared data ownership risk product rejection, regu...

Poor data quality and analytics drive down business value. In fact, Gartner estimated that the average financial impact of poor data quality on organizations is $9.7 million per year. But bad data is much more than a cost center. By eroding trust in information, analytics and the business decisions based on these, it is a serious impediment to digital transformation.
Digital Transformation: Preparing Cloud & IoT Security for the Age of Artificial Intelligence. As automation and artificial intelligence (AI) power solution development and delivery, many businesses need to build backend cloud capabilities. Well-poised organizations, marketing smart devices with AI and BlockChain capabilities prepare to refine compliance and regulatory capabilities in 2018. Volumes of health, financial, technical and privacy data, along with tightening compliance requirements by...

Enterprises have taken advantage of IoT to achieve important revenue and cost advantages. What is less apparent is how incumbent enterprises operating at scale have, following success with IoT, built analytic, operations management and software development capabilities - ranging from autonomous vehicles to manageable robotics installations. They have embraced these capabilities as if they were Silicon Valley startups.
As IoT continues to increase momentum, so does the associated risk. Secure Device Lifecycle Management (DLM) is ranked as one of the most important technology areas of IoT. Driving this trend is the realization that secure support for IoT devices provides companies the ability to deliver high-quality, reliable, secure offerings faster, create new revenue streams, and reduce support costs, all while building a competitive advantage in their markets. In this session, we will use customer use cases...
