We’re seeing the maturation of the content space, and Daylife is making it easier to curate, discover, and integrate content.
New York, NY (PRWEB) July 21, 2010
Smart content platform Daylife today announced the launch of its new Ignite Technology Partner Program. The program enables content creators, software vendors and service providers to integrate Daylife-powered functionality and technology into their product offerings.
By supporting the creation of more content applications based on the Daylife platform, the program expands the number of publishers and people Daylife’s technology will serve. Inaugural partners include Brainient, Cell Journalist, Demotix, Internet Broadcasting, Magnify.net,, Parse.ly, Redlasso, Sailthru, WebMynd, and Zemanta.
“We’re witnessing the maturation of the content space,” said Upendra Shardanand, Chief Executive Officer of Daylife, commenting on the announcement.
“In the former content economy, everyone produced their own content and built their own applications, with limited syndication,” Shardanand continued. “Now we are witnessing innovation in content production, and an explosion in content applications. Daylife is pleased it can make it easier to curate, discover, and integrate content.”
Partners benefit from access to the Daylife API, a platform that enables developers to source, analyze and query a variety of media types from thousands of sources. Partners use Daylife’s technology to build products that are interoperable with a wide network of media applications, and reach Daylife’s high-profile client base of major publishers and digital brand destinations.
Technology partner Zemanta's Founder and Chief Executive Officer Boštjan Špeti
stated that, "Zemanta recommends content to bloggers through easy to use tools. We are excited to be working with Daylife to bring more diverse, multi-format, high-quality content to the 30,000 bloggers using Zemanta today."
"We're seeing an evolution in the way sites both create and curate content," said Magnify.net Chief Executive Officer Steve Rosenbaum. "Daylife has proven itself to be the leader in content for sites looking to add multi-source text and images to their video offering. We're excited to partner with Daylife to offer their services to the 70,000 channels on the Magnify network."
In addition, Jeff Kimball, Internet Broadcasting's Chief Operating Officer, commented that, “Internet Broadcasting’s mission is to engage consumers on behalf of our local media partners. Daylife’s technology allows IB to build those experiences in a new and easy way. The end result is that IB’s partners win with better online experiences and consumers win by getting more of what they want online.”
Daylife’s current clients include USA Today, ABC News, National Public Radio, Dallas Morning News, Forbes, and Time Warner Cable Road Runner. The Ignite Technology Partner Program will significantly expand Daylife’s client reach to hundreds of thousands of small and medium-sized bloggers and publishers.
