Data, Targeting & Trading: Debating The New Machine

Online display advertising is now a tale of big technology, big data, auction-based models and the relentless press of automation. The machine this industry built in the last several years is huge, but also confusing, unprofitable for many in the stack, and still unproven for those who continue to reach beyond the banner. The big ad machine has raised more questions perhaps than it has answered yet.

At OMMA Display we interrogate the new machine from all angles. Are programmatic and premium inventories still at odds, and are publishers winning or losing under the new models? Can the bright shiny object of “native advertising” keep its polish as demands for scale and standardization increase? Is the main food group for data driven display, the cookie, about to crumble? Data is driver behind ad tech, but is a rational market shaping around it, and is the data creating demonstrable value? Data driven marketing and the tech-laden display industries are the giant Transformers of digital marketing. OMMA Display pops the hood, asks the tough questions, and gives the display advertising engine a check-up.
