OpenX and AdTruth Announce Partnership to Deliver Groundbreaking Mobile Targeting Capabilities

OpenX Software Ltd., one of the world’s leading providers of digital and mobile advertising technology, and AdTruth, the global leader in device recognition to improve digital advertising, today announced a partnership to deliver more effective mobile ad inventory sold through OpenX Market, OpenX’s Real-Time Bidding (RTB) platform. For the first time, advertisers will be able to recognize and reach targeted audiences at scale on mobile devices through a global RTB exchange across both mobile web and mobile application inventory, a capability uniquely possible via AdTruth’s mobile bridging technology. Publishers and app developers will benefit by being able to more accurately define their audiences, leading to improved eCPM for publishers and better advertiser ROI. These AdTruth-powered benefits will be available to OpenX Market users in the second quarter of 2013.

Unlike traditional online advertising, for which there are a number of techniques to identify and target users, mobile advertising has been hindered by limited audience recognition capabilities. This has slowed the adoption of RTB in the rapidly expanding mobile market. AdTruth’s patented device recognition technology anonymously identifies consumers whether they are using their device for apps or to browse the mobile Web. AdTruth fills the gap where cookies do not perform, ultimately resulting in increased ROI for the marketer. As a result of this partnership, advertisers using OpenX Market can now execute mobile campaigns with greater accuracy, efficiency and duration, while respecting consumer privacy.

“The trend in the industry toward mobile advertising and programmatic buying is a growing element of the media buying mix,” comments Carl Uminski, chief operating officer of global mobile marketing company, Somo. “However we desperately need a privacy by design, universal, audience identification and targeting capability for our advertisers in mobile. With the availability of AdTruth DeviceInsight ID in OpenX Market, we can now take mobile advertising ROI to the next level quickly.”

The OpenX/AdTruth partnership provides publishers selling mobile inventory the ability to price their mobile inventory at a premium that accurately reflects the greater value it offers to advertisers when it is made available through OpenX Market. AdTruth’s privacy-by-design approach ensures that no personally identifiable information or data is collected or stored.

“We’re excited to work with AdTruth to present a fundamentally new capability in the mobile exchange space,” said Jason Fairchild, chief revenue officer, OpenX. “For too long, mobile advertising – with all of its great promise – has been hobbled by the inability to recognize and reach users with accuracy across both mobile Web and application inventory. Enabling OpenX Market advertisers to easily access mobile inventory at scale with the enhanced recognition provided by AdTruth is going to dramatically improve industry economics for both advertisers and publishers.”

“AdTruth is committed to providing advertisers with the critical link between users and their mobile devices,” said James Lamberti, vice president and general manager, AdTruth. “Based on feedback from brand, agency and network customers, we’ve created a privacy-by-design device recognition technology that delivers the universal identification layer needed for strong ROI for marketers and publishers alike. Offering this solution to the buyers and sellers using OpenX’s RTB platform marks a significant step forward for the mobile advertising ecosystem.”

IoT & Smart Cities Stories
The Internet of Things will challenge the status quo of how IT and development organizations operate. Or will it? Certainly the fog layer of IoT requires special insights about data ontology, security and transactional integrity. But the developmental challenges are the same: People, Process and Platform and how we integrate our thinking to solve complicated problems. In his session at 19th Cloud Expo, Craig Sproule, CEO of Metavine, demonstrated how to move beyond today's coding paradigm and sh...
@DevOpsSummit at Cloud Expo, taking place November 12-13 in New York City, NY, is co-located with 22nd international CloudEXPO | first international DXWorldEXPO and will feature technical sessions from a rock star conference faculty and the leading industry players in the world. The widespread success of cloud computing is driving the DevOps revolution in enterprise IT. Now as never before, development teams must communicate and collaborate in a dynamic, 24/7/365 environment. There is no time t...
What are the new priorities for the connected business? First: businesses need to think differently about the types of connections they will need to make – these span well beyond the traditional app to app into more modern forms of integration including SaaS integrations, mobile integrations, APIs, device integration and Big Data integration. It’s important these are unified together vs. doing them all piecemeal. Second, these types of connections need to be simple to design, adapt and configure...

To Really Work for Enterprises, MultiCloud Adoption Requires Far Better and Inclusive Cloud Monitoring and Cost Management … But How? Overwhelmingly, even as enterprises have adopted cloud computing and are expanding to multi-cloud computing, IT leaders remain concerned about how to monitor, manage and control costs across hybrid and multi-cloud deployments. It’s clear that traditional IT monitoring and management approaches, designed after all for on-premises data centers, are falling short in ...
We are seeing a major migration of enterprises applications to the cloud. As cloud and business use of real time applications accelerate, legacy networks are no longer able to architecturally support cloud adoption and deliver the performance and security required by highly distributed enterprises. These outdated solutions have become more costly and complicated to implement, install, manage, and maintain.SD-WAN offers unlimited capabilities for accessing the benefits of the cloud and Internet. ...
The deluge of IoT sensor data collected from connected devices and the powerful AI required to make that data actionable are giving rise to a hybrid ecosystem in which cloud, on-prem and edge processes become interweaved. Attendees will learn how emerging composable infrastructure solutions deliver the adaptive architecture needed to manage this new data reality.
