To do so, EDO will leverage its unparalleled expertise connecting ad occurrence to behavioral outcomes, such as search and site visitation, as well as deliver non-traditional data and real-time metrics to guide media placement optimization.

“What makes this collaboration different is that it isn’t just about offering another metric for performance to potential ad buyers,” said Robert Macdonald, SVP Tech Partnerships & Investments, Fox Corporation. “It directly impacts how Fox goes to market with its own businesses.
