E-commerce platforms today need to get a better handle on the identity of their users across devices and be able to layer on intelligence about activities that occur when people are not logged into the platforms themselves. By doing so, e-commerce platforms will see drastic improvements. David de Jong, CEO of Screen6, dives into the details on MarTech Series.
Ad tech is struggling to transition to a state of full maturity, and that’s largely due to the continued acceptance of half-truths and inadequate technological shortcuts. The truth is that cross-device is being inadequately addressed by many players within the marketing industry, and the vast majority of companies that say they’re enabling cross-device are either openly lying or seriously bending the truth.
Having the power to block devices is of paramount importance when combating organized e-commerce fraud. Quickly identifying and blocking a device being used by a fraudster restricts the possibility that a single device will generate numerous accounts with different payment information on a merchant’s platform. We explain the vital role of cross-device identification in online security.
Keith Petri, CSO, Screen6, stresses the importance of establishing a cohesive customer identity across devices as a means to provide the customized experience that the savvy modern consumer expects.
Advertisers have long been aware of the importance of monitoring frequency when it comes to their messaging. With the rise of the digital age and the countless new ad venues that it opened, advertisers recognized the need to avoid exposure to too many ad impressions, both as means of improving the user experience and ensuring their ad buys garner the needed reach.
The rise of the connected car has been swift. With most auto manufacturers beginning to offer apps on the in-car dashboard, integrations with voice assistants, and swipe navigation, the latest cars on the market seem more like software platforms that people just happen to drive.
While OTT has gained a larger piece of the media pie, measuring its engagement through connected devices and in households is deeply flawed. Keith Petri explores the importance of effective measurement for marketers to better understand their audiences.
The cross-device landscape is one that’s rife with widespread misunderstandings. Anyone who gazes into their crystal ball and claims to have all the answers is likely wrong, writes Keith Petri, Chief Strategy Officer, Screen6, exclusively for ExchangeWire.
In the ad tech industry, we spend a lot of time talking to ourselves. Our industry tends to congregate at a series of events throughout the year — Advertising Week, Dmexco, Cannes, and a half a dozen others — and everyone’s “must attend” list is eerily similar. That’s a problem.
It’s hard to go a day in our industry without stumbling across a news or opinion piece related to “The Duopoly,” Facebook and Google. Screen6 CEO, David de Jong, shares his thoughts on who he believes will be the duopoly breaker.
