Bylined thought leadership articles are foundational to any integrated PR campaign. This is especially true in the enterprise technology market where vendors are aggressivel competing for mindshare.

Zayo is a global provider of telecommunications and infrastructure services. One of their primary business objectives was to extend their reach from selling commoditized connectivity to telecom and managed service providers to focus on selling a variety of value added cloud services in key vertical markets such as Financial Services.
