Most marketers lack the resources to keep their existing social media presence vibrant, much less the time to build out strategies that create broader, viral online experiences. Founded in March 2010, PointBurst solves the pains of traditional social media broadcasting with an innovative cloud-based platform that streamlines every part of social media marketing and communication.

PointBurst transforms every post into meaningful conversation, making it easier to engage and maintain active online communities. From one platform PointBurst enables syndication, monitoring, and analysis of social media activities. Organizations can also rapidly share every asset they create with their franchisees/resellers/affiliates/partners ("affiliate") multiplying their reach, ensuring brand consistency, and providing valuable content to support the affiliates’ social media efforts.

Under The Radar

Under the Radar: Consumerization of IT – Join us! April 25-26, 2012 Mt. View

The rise of webscale businesses like Google, Facebook and Linkedin have permanently changed consumer expectations in the workplace. As business units are demanding real-time data on customers, IT needs to transition from an operations role to a hybrid like Dev/Ops or App/Ops to manage petabyte size data sets, create scalable infrastructures, and enable rapid application development. As we enter a new era of IT disruption, early adopters that are quick to capitalize on disruptive technologies will lead the market. The question remains: Which technologies will emerge as the new standards?

At Under the Radar we select a handful of the industry's most compelling emerging startups that provide cutting edge solutions. Our companies present to top IT executives looking to partner with and acquire new technologies. Want to get the edge on your competition? Join us on April 25-26, 2012 to learn about the latest innovations and meet leading executives from the enterprise for a day of discovery, networking and deal flow.
