MediaMath, an independent advertising technology company for leading brands and agencies, has redesigned, key elements of its omnichannel platform that combines a flexible identity foundation, complete supply chain accountability, and infinite customization of components with new and enhanced workflows for traders and supply managers.
Chief Marketing and Financial Officers demand more control and flexibility, which requires solutions that fit their specific business and marketing models.

The enhanced platform design meets the needs of a broad range of engagement models and optionality, enabling simplified execution and optimization of every aspect of their digital ad campaigns.
“Traditional programmatic advertising was built on the promise of choice and innovation, but as it has grown over the last 15 years, it has become an complex and fragmented ecosystem. This has been further exasperated by the creation of walled gardens, which restrict control and lack transparency,” said Anudit Vikram, Chief Product Officer, MediaMath. “If brands and agencies truly want to drive efficiency, neither walled gardens nor the old/traditional programmatic are the best path forward.”
The MediaMath Platform is purpose-built around individual requirements, making it easy for brands and agencies to maximize the return on their marketing investment across a complicated digital landscape and maintain addressability as the industry prepares for the end of the 3rd party cookie.
