COSTA MESA, Calif., Feb. 16, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Hyundai is an automotive big winner in this year's Super Bowl as consumers ranked "Team" the fifth best commercial, and number one 30-second automotive ad, in the YouTube Ad Blitz.  In addition, "Team" cracked the top 10 on USA Today's all-important Ad Meter, and was the top-performing automotive 30-second ad overall. "Team" also ranked as the third most re-watched Super Bowl ad out of all advertisers according to TiVo.

"Ad Blitz is a celebration of the most creative, engaging and powerful Super Bowl ads of the year, providing viewers with a place to watch, learn and chat about their favorite ads," said Suzie Reider, head of industry development, YouTube. "The winners of this year's Ad Blitz represent the ads that resonated most with viewers, with millions of views and votes on YouTube."

With more than 14.2 million total views, Hyundai's Super Bowl ads currently have the fourth highest number of YouTube views for any automotive manufacturer. In addition, Hyundai Facebook and Twitter social channels are seeing post-game spikes with 15,000 new Facebook fans and the hashtag #pickyourteam currently used more than 20,000 times.

In the aftermath of Super Bowl weekend, Hyundai's chart-topping commercials continue to drive social popularity for the brand and interest for the all-new seven-passenger Santa Fe.  The new commercials were deemed the most effective drivers of web traffic, recognizing the highest consideration increases on key third party sites such as Edmunds.com, Cars.com and AutoTrader.com. Web tracking reveals Santa Fe model page views up 738 percent on Edmunds.com, Genesis received an 830 percent bump in web traffic on Cars.com and there was a 1,000 percent brand interest increase on AutoTrader.com.

"This is a banner year for Hyundai. Breaking into the top 10 for both the USA Today Ad Meter and YouTube Ad Blitz is a true measure of the success and impact of our commercials," said Steve Shannon, vice president, Marketing, Hyundai Motor America. "This Super Bowl, Hyundai also had the highest1 percentage increase of new fans. With Twitter traffic at 24.1 million tweets during Super Bowl XLVII – up nine million from last year – and sites like YouTube and Facebook continuing to provide consumers with timely information on 'what is trending now,' it is more important for marketers to cut through the clutter and rise to the top."

"Stuck", Hyundai's second quarter in-game ad also placed in the USA Today Ad Meter top 20 and was ranked 8th among all Super Bowl ads by Ace Metrix, the industry standard in television and video analytics.

"The commercial is really the first step to engagement," continues Shannon. "We are always reinventing our advertising strategy to ensure that it has multiple touch points, both on and off the screen. An example of this is our 'Find Your Seven' social mobile campaign that leveraged the power of Facebook to create an entertaining dual-screen experience for Super Bowl viewers. With this program extension alone, we are seeing 8.1 million impressions, 77,000 clicks and more than 5,800 videos generated."

The increased social chatter and overwhelming positive response to the new commercials translate to new highs on Hyundai.com and dealership websites. Data obtained after the commercials publicly aired reveal that Hyundai.com visits increased 51 percent over the January average, while mobile traffic went up 10 percent year-over-year. Santa Fe, the star of this year's Super Bowl advertising blitz, received a 591 percent increase year-over-year on its dedicated model page.  Hyundai dealer sites also benefited with a surge in web traffic of 261 percent during Super Bowl weekend and a 547 percent peak in mobile visits.

The success of Hyundai's Super Bowl advertising campaign extends beyond the social sphere with national media acclaim including top rankings and recognitions from leading news authorities such as:

  • Fox Sports ranks "Team" as one of their 10 best-rated Super Bowl commercials
  • Automotive News labeled "Stuck" and "Epic Play Date" as "Hits"
  • Autoweek ranked "Team", "Epic Playdate" and  "Stuck" in the top 10
  • Yahoo! lists "Epic Playdate" as one of the "Top 10 buzziest ads"
  • TIME rated "Team" one of the best ads with an A- rating
  • MTV listed "Epic Play Date" as one of the "The 10 Best Spots"
  • VentureBeat named "Team" one of the "10 ads that 'won' the Super Bowl this year"

Just over a week ago I received a long and loud sustained applause for a presentation I delivered at this year’s Cloud Expo in Santa Clara. I was extremely pleased with the turnout and had some very good conversations with many of the attendees. Over the next few days I had many more meaningful conversations and was not only happy with the results but also learned a few new things. Here is everything I learned in those three days distilled into three short points.
In this strange new world where more and more power is drawn from business technology, companies are effectively straddling two paths on the road to innovation and transformation into digital enterprises. The first path is the heritage trail – with “legacy” technology forming the background. Here, extant technologies are transformed by core IT teams to provide more API-driven approaches. Legacy systems can restrict companies that are transitioning into digital enterprises. To truly become a lea...

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.
"My role is working with customers, helping them go through this digital transformation. I spend a lot of time talking to banks, big industries, manufacturers working through how they are integrating and transforming their IT platforms and moving them forward," explained William Morrish, General Manager Product Sales at Interoute, in this SYS-CON.tv interview at 18th Cloud Expo, held June 7-9, 2016, at the Javits Center in New York City, NY.
A strange thing is happening along the way to the Internet of Things, namely far too many devices to work with and manage. It has become clear that we'll need much higher efficiency user experiences that can allow us to more easily and scalably work with the thousands of devices that will soon be in each of our lives. Enter the conversational interface revolution, combining bots we can literally talk with, gesture to, and even direct with our thoughts, with embedded artificial intelligence, wh...

What are the new priorities for the connected business? First: businesses need to think differently about the types of connections they will need to make – these span well beyond the traditional app to app into more modern forms of integration including SaaS integrations, mobile integrations, APIs, device integration and Big Data integration. It’s important these are unified together vs. doing them all piecemeal. Second, these types of connections need to be simple to design, adapt and configure...
What happens when the different parts of a vehicle become smarter than the vehicle itself? As we move toward the era of smart everything, hundreds of entities in a vehicle that communicate with each other, the vehicle and external systems create a need for identity orchestration so that all entities work as a conglomerate. Much like an orchestra without a conductor, without the ability to secure, control, and connect the link between a vehicle’s head unit, devices, and systems and to manage the ...
The Jevons Paradox suggests that when technological advances increase efficiency of a resource, it results in an overall increase in consumption. Writing on the increased use of coal as a result of technological improvements, 19th-century economist William Stanley Jevons found that these improvements led to the development of new ways to utilize coal. In his session at 19th Cloud Expo, Mark Thiele, Chief Strategy Officer for Apcera, will compare the Jevons Paradox to modern-day enterprise IT, e...
Major trends and emerging technologies – from virtual reality and IoT, to Big Data and algorithms – are helping organizations innovate in the digital era. However, to create real business value, IT must think beyond the ‘what’ of digital transformation to the ‘how’ to harness emerging trends, innovation and disruption. Architecture is the key that underpins and ties all these efforts together. In the digital age, it’s important to invest in architecture, extend the enterprise footprint to the cl...

Data is an unusual currency; it is not restricted by the same transactional limitations as money or people. In fact, the more that you leverage your data across multiple business use cases, the more valuable it becomes to the organization. And the same can be said about the organization’s analytics. In his session at 19th Cloud Expo, Bill Schmarzo, CTO for the Big Data Practice at EMC, will introduce a methodology for capturing, enriching and sharing data (and analytics) across the organizati...
