NEW YORK, July 26, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- Donovan Data Systems (DDS) today announced the launch of the next generation iDesk, the industry-leading application for digital campaign management.
This latest application from DDS is the first of a series of major new technology developments. It addresses the unique needs of buying digital media for agency clients, while at the same time establishing the foundation to support all media in the future.
"Today's launch is a very significant step for DDS and its clients. We're using cloud-based, best-in-class technology to launch our new media applications and platforms. iDesk is just the beginning," says JT Batson, president, DDS Digital.
