Independent advertising technology platform PubMatic formally announced that it has integrated The Trade Desk’s unified ID solution onto its sell-side platform. Together, these two programmatic advertising leaders aim to improve the impact and effectiveness of addressable audience reach. This is made possible by The Trade Desk offering its extensive, global cookie footprint at no cost to the digital advertising industry at large.
Adoption of the free unified ID solution allows all parties across the supply chain (SSPs, DSPs, DMPs and data providers) to utilize The Trade Desk’s cookie footprint to increase their own cookie coverage across the global independent internet. In addition, the unified ID solution allows for much stronger match rates across all parties involved.
The Trade Desk is a technology company that empowers buyers of advertising. Through its self-service, cloud-based platform, ad buyers can create, manage, and optimize more expressive data-driven digital advertising campaigns across ad formats, including display, video, audio, native and, social, on a multitude of devices, such as computers, mobile devices, and connected TV.
“The size and scale of the open Internet makes tools like The Trade Desk’s unified ID solution necessary for more effective marketing at a global scale,” said Amar Goel, Founder and Chief Growth Officer, PubMatic. “The supply-side will play a crucial role in increasing adoption, and identity resolution is a win-win for our entire industry to drive higher yield for publishers, improve the independent internet and challenge the walled gardens.”
“PubMatic is a leader in the programmatic supply landscape and we are thrilled that they were early implementers of the unified ID solution,” said Brian Stempeck, Chief Client Officer, The Trade Desk. “We decided to launch this initiative as a way to offer our industry a simple, free solution to a very solvable problem that improves the open internet. Widespread adoption of the unified ID solution helps digital advertising become even more effective.”
