CAKE by Accelerize Leverages Amazon Web Services to Continue Delivering Advanced Multi-channel Digital Marketing Capabilities for Growing Global Customer Base

Enterprise SaaS Company Moves to AWS to Efficiently and Cost-effectively Scale According to Demand


NEWPORT BEACH, Calif. – December 8, 2016 – Accelerize (OTCQB: ACLZ) (OTCBB: ACLZ) and its digital marketing software division CAKE, today announced that it is using Amazon Web Services (AWS) to scale business growth and support its continued expansion across the globe. CAKE provides a proprietary software-as-a-service (SaaS) enterprise platform that tracks and analyzes the multi-channel performance of digital marketing spend. Utilizing AWS for efficient and cost-effective capacity planning, CAKE delivers a highly flexible enterprise platform equipped to handle the massive data requirements of its growing worldwide roster of clients.


An industry standard for affiliate networks, brands, publishers and agencies, CAKE’s solution provides data-driven insights that measurably improve digital marketing campaign performance and optimize return on investment. CAKE’s SaaS platform currently tracks digital marketing campaigns across multiple channels including search, social, affiliate, display, mobile and more. This granular data provides insights that enable clients to make real-time decisions and maximize digital marketing spend. CAKE, built on AWS, manages global scaling requirements to perform real-time analysis of more than 6 billion actions per month, with clients from over 40 countries.


“Organizations of all shapes and sizes across the world make use of the AWS Cloud so they can focus their resources on delivering more value to their customers instead of on managing data centers,” said Matt Wood, general manager, Product Strategy at AWS. “We’re thrilled that CAKE is using the AWS Cloud to drive innovation for their digital platform so their end customers can get the most out of CAKE’s real-time tracking and analytics solution.”


Global spending on digital marketing continues to rise. By 2019, marketing leaders will spend more than $130 billion on search marketing, display advertising, social media marketing and email marketing – more than they will on broadcast and cable television advertising combined, according to Forrester.


“Fast performance and unrestricted scaling capabilities are crucial to deliver multi-channel insights to our clients on a real-time basis,” said Dave Stewart, CTO at CAKE. “AWS enables us with greater scalability and control, while also helping us maximize value from our IT investments. Built on AWS, CAKE is able to reach new heights as an enterprise company and focus on empowering our clients with the tools to drive the future of digital marketing innovation.”
