Terracotta Marketing Campaign Wins Gold Stevie® Award

Marketing Efforts Take Highest Honor in Communications/PR Campaign of the Year Category

SAN FRANCISCO, CA — June 20, 2013

Terracotta, the leader in in-memory technologies for enterprise Big Data, along with Tanis Communications, a leading Silicon Valley marketing and communications services firm, won a Gold Stevie Award® for Communications/PR Campaign of the Year - Marketing - Business-to-Business in the 11th Annual American Business Awards.

The honor was awarded to the two companies for successfully executing marketing strategies, messaging, web content, collateral development and PR in support of three major events, while ramping up Terracotta’s PR program.  Terracotta was simultaneously planning its annual sales kick-off meeting, a major revision and product launch of its market-leading in-memory solution, BigMemory, and the introduction of a market-extending new analytics offering, In-Genius.

In a 100-day sprint, the combined team produced an award winning campaign that included a refreshed brand strategy and creative identity along with 50 different pieces of collateral aligned with the new brand framework and a unique brand voice. Tanis Communications also pitched the Terracotta story to a suite of key industry analysts as well as nearly 200 reporters resulting in a significant increase in press coverage.

The Terracotta entry was chosen from among the more than 3,200 entries submitted for the 2013 competition and selected by more than 150 executives nationwide. “The Stevie Awards are an opportunity to honor so many wonderful organizations and executives,” said Michael Gallagher, President and Founder of the Stevie Awards. “It's remarkable to see the passion these award recipients have for their work, and we are proud to recognize their achievements.”
