Mediamath


MediaMath: Empowering the new breed of marketing professionals

The Mad Men of the 1960s helped define the way business has been done in our industry for the last 50 years. With the advent of digital technology, interactive channels and vast amounts of data, a new breed of advertising professional has emerged - Math Men and Math Women.

What do they do? They use data to understand consumer behavior and identify opportunities. They translate those insights into integrated marketing strategies across channels, with clear and measurable goals. They use advanced analytics to identify the media and audiences that will best reach those goals, and quantify the value of each. They analyze results and optimize to deliver more of what's working and less of what isn't, and they do it every day. In short, they use technology and data to turn ideas into results.

At MediaMath (founded 2007), we've built the tools that enable and empower this new breed of marketing professional. Our TerminalOne Marketing Operating System allows agencies and advertisers to plan, execute, optimize, and analyze marketing programs across the digital landscape.

The result? Greater efficiency, measurably superior performance of each advertising dollar and strategic media and audience insights to drive smarter decision-making for the new generation of Math Men.

YuMe


The Science Behind Influence™

YuMe is a multi-screen video advertising technology company that is defining the next generation of TV brand advertising. As TV viewing audiences continue to fragment across screens, content types, and different consumer electronic platforms it becomes increasingly hard for a brand to reach their desired audience. YuMe’s platform and services simplify the complexity of this fragmentation using embedded software and data sciences. We embed software (our audience-aware YuMe SDK) in applications, video players, and consumer electronics allowing a once video ad creative to run seamlessly across all screens while also collecting data about the audience and context where the ad ran. That data powers our placement quality index (PQI) that finds the best placement to drive attention and campaign performance. We also collect first-party data via our SDKs that enables our data science engine to produce the next generation of digital brand advertising targeting—finding brand receptive audience segments who are most likely to respond to your brand message.

We believe that dramatic shifts in consumer viewing behavior are heralding a new era for digital brand advertising—redefining traditional TV brand advertising. By taking the influence and reach of TV and marrying it with the science and accuracy of digital we are building a platform for the next generation of TV brand advertising—The Science Behind Influence.
