Harnessing the Power of Programmatic

Are you among the marketers not fully leveraging the benefits of the growing area of programmatic? During this highly interactive course you will overcome hurdles as we demystify how programmatic works and help you develop a roadmap that will allow you to make programmatic work for your organization.

Marketers will gain a greater understanding of the components of the programmatic ecosystem, including trading desks, DSPs (demand side platforms), SSPs (supply side platforms), DMPs (data management platforms) and exchanges. You will learn the different types of programmatic buying (guaranteed buys, private marketplaces and RTB) and forms of data and improve your ability to help protect against concerns such as transparency, fraud and viewability.
