ResponsiveAds™ Launches New Responsive Web Design Display Banner Advertising Service

Now available in private beta, STRETCH™ offer enables publishers, agencies and brands to effectively run the same ad creative in different configurations across desktop, smartphones and tablets.

NEW YORK, Dec. 12, 2012 /PRNewswire-iReach/ -- ResponsiveAds, Inc. today announces the private beta release of the world's first, patent-pending STRETCH™ product and a collection of responsive creative ad formats. The STRETCH™ product allows customers to easily upload a standard IAB (Interactive Advertising Bureau) ad unit-sized creative and in minutes author a single, cloud-hosted rich-media HTML5 responsive creative banner ad. Customers do not need to be web designers to create ads that work seamlessly on all digital screens while outputting a single ad tag to simplify the ad operations process, with full-compatibility to existing industry ad servers. A showcase of five unique new formats can be found at responsiveads.com/ad-formats-showcase/.  * Included is a special responsive full-takeover (Backdrop™) in-cooperation with South Florida's trend setting boutique retailer Koko & Palenki for the holiday season. This ad demonstrates the "magic" of STRETCH™ as the ad acts differently in Smartphone portrait and landscape modes.

The breakthrough at the core of ResponsiveAds' STRETCH™ technology directly addresses the challenges publishers are facing to effectively monetize their rapidly increasing mobile inventory. According to analyst Mary Meeker, now an Investment Partner at venture capital firm Kleiner Perkins Caufield Byers, eCPMs (effective cost-per-thousand impression ads) are five times lower on mobile than on the desktop. The combined mobile and interactive usage vs. spend gap leaves an estimated US $20 billion immediate upside in the US market alone.

While the STRETCH™ product was developed with responsive web design sites in mind; it is not limited to responsive sites.   STRETCH™ ad tags can enable the same ad to work on mobile, tablet or desktop sites and apps using the patent pending process called Flow-Lines™. This new unique concept of Flow-lines™ defines the configuration for how the ad adapts automatically to different screen sizes and responds dynamically to context and user.  It is perfectly suited for brands to efficiently deliver a cross-screen campaign via just one ad-tag.

ResponsiveAds, Inc. has now opened its self-service platform for STRETCH™ advertising in private beta to a select group of publishers, advertisers and brands. The company is accepting requests for participation in the next round of the beta at responsiveads.com/sign-up.  Users can upload a creative asset, which outputs as a Responsive STRETCH™ banner ad unit and ad tag.  From brand awareness to direct response campaigns, the same ad can be quickly configured run across multiple screen sizes. According to Founder and CEO of ResponsiveAds, Matthew Snyder, "We are excited to bring this disruptive product to both allow publishers the ability to improve yields and sell-through across digital properties, and to enable marketers to efficiently and effectively deliver their message across mediums through this new form of bundling."

There is no cost to sign up and trial STRETCH™ product.  Once customers have reached a threshold of usage, the STRETCH™ service utilizes a pricing structure that combines CPM and cost-for-creative.  The request for invitation sign-up is available from today as well as information on plans and pricing.  Visit http://responsiveads.com/sign-up to sign up for a private beta invitation.

In the midst of the widespread popularity and adoption of cloud computing, it seems like everything is being offered “as a Service” these days: Infrastructure? Check. Platform? You bet. Software? Absolutely. Toaster? It’s only a matter of time. With service providers positioning vastly differing offerings under a generic “cloud” umbrella, it’s all too easy to get confused about what’s actually being offered. In his session at 16th Cloud Expo, Kevin Hazard, Director of Digital Content for SoftL...

Microservice architectures are the new hotness, even though they aren't really all that different (in principle) from the paradigm described by SOA (which is dead, or not dead, depending on whom you ask). One of the things this decompositional approach to application architecture does is encourage developers and operations (some might even say DevOps) to re-evaluate scaling strategies. In particular, the notion is forwarded that an application should be built to scale and then infrastructure sho...

For those of us that have been practicing SOA for over a decade, it's surprising that there's so much interest in microservices. In fairness microservices don't look like the vendor play that was early SOA in the early noughties. But experienced SOA practitioners everywhere will be wondering if microservices is actually a good thing. You see microservices is basically an SOA pattern that inherits all the well-known SOA principles and adds characteristics that address the use of SOA for distribut...

Microservices are the result of decomposing applications. That may sound a lot like SOA, but SOA was based on an object-oriented (noun) premise; that is, services were built around an object - like a customer - with all the necessary operations (functions) that go along with it. SOA was also founded on a variety of standards (most of them coming out of OASIS) like SOAP, WSDL, XML and UDDI. Microservices have no standards (at least none deriving from a standards body or organization) and can be b...
Right off the bat, Newman advises that we should "think of microservices as a specific approach for SOA in the same way that XP or Scrum are specific approaches for Agile Software development". These analogies are very interesting because my expectation was that microservices is a pattern. So I might infer that microservices is a set of process techniques as opposed to an architectural approach. Yet in the book, Newman clearly includes some elements of concept model and architecture as well as p...
