Ocient’s ability to drive workload consolidation, the elimination of disparate ETL environments, and intra-database machine learning within a single, unified platform enables adtech customers to test and build new data-powered applications and drive rapid ROI
CHICAGO — March 21, 2023 — Ocient, the leading hyperscale data analytics solutions company serving organizations that derive value from analyzing massive data sets in interactive time, today announced a series of achievements marking its momentum in the advertising technology (adtech) industry.
Ocient doubled its customer base and expanded product capabilities for adtech customers.
Ocient is working with leading adtech providers such as MediaMath and Basis Technologies, to drive more efficient and effective data-powered applications to meet the needs of advertisers and content suppliers in an industry that continues to grow its digital footprint and audience touchpoints.
Over the last fiscal year, Ocient doubled its customer base in the advertising technology space and is now enabling demand side, supply side, ad platforms, and data-as-a-service providers to cut costs while scaling data integration, consolidating disparate analytics environments and achieving immediate ROI.
To meet growing demand for better insights and analytics at scale, Ocient expanded its capabilities for adtech customers growing from its initial campaign forecasting solution into bid shading, bid price optimization, bid quality optimization, troubleshooting, audience segmentation, price basket analysis, and more. In addition, Ocient leverages its hyperscale stream loading and transformation capabilities to cost-effectively pre-aggregate bidder log and impression data across many dimensions powering continuous delivery of rapid insights for campaign analytics and attribution.
The expansion of Ocient’s in-database machine learning and geospatial analytics capabilities in its version 21 product release is also providing new opportunities for adtech customers to harvest more insights from more sources and from larger historical volumes of data.
“Advertising technology providers are driven by efficiency and that’s why we’re seeing so much traction in this industry. The ability to harvest ad exchange data faster, deliver greater customer ROI, and accelerate the launch of new products and services powered by more data is opening new revenue opportunities for our customers while streamlining the operational burden and complexity for driving bottom-line growth,” said Ocient CEO Chris Gladwin.

To further address the adtech market, Ocient added adtech industry veteran Anudit Vikram, Digital Business Unit General Manager and Chief Product Officer at Intentsify, to its Sales and Marketing Advisory Board. Vikram’s extensive industry experience spans prior roles at MediaMath, Dun & Bradstreet, Yahoo!, and Merkle. Vikram joins Ocient’s current adtech industry advisors Tim Mahlman, Rob Gatto, and Wilfried Schobeiri on the board.
“I’ve seen Ocient’s technology and team in action firsthand. Ocient’s ability to drive new revenue opportunities for customers, tailor solutions to each customer’s business requirements, understand the nuances of adtech as an industry, and deliver immediate ROI is truly unmatched among data solutions providers. I’m thrilled to join Ocient’s Sales and Marketing Advisory Board to assist with further growth and disruption in adtech,” said Vikram.
