First, Brainshark has launched Brainshark for Salesforce Work.com on the Salesforce1 AppExchange.

Meanwhile YuMe has launched Video Reach, a new programmatic video platform allowing advertisers and buyers to leverage video ads across screens and channels from a single buy. The platform uses first party data science for targeting, automates the buying process and includes multi-screen inventory for brands.
"Brand advertisers are having difficulty embracing programmatic video due to scale concerns, inferior targeting algorithms and being limited to online only," said Jayant Kadambi, Co-Founder and CEO, YuMe. "In fact, the bulk of programmatic support doesn't include mobile, tablet and CTV. So, we built a solution that alleviates all of these concerns and more - helping TV brand advertisers fully embrace programmatic video advertising, across all screens."
Sitecore has launched mobile apps for brands that give advertisers access to their suite of products from any place. The Sitecore Executive Insights Dashboard shows advertisers what customers are doing on-site, offers mobile engagement analytics and to use mobile devices to push relevant content to the Sitecore Media Library.

One of the more interesting offerings is a context-based search option which can help connect users with relevant, timely information based on the context of their queries.
