What it does. The companies claim this will allow Intent IQ’s identity device graph to aggregate all of Brightcom’s publisher SSP and DSP IDs into a single Intent IQ Person ID. It is supposed to do this while returning partner SSP and DSP IDs when those are missing. Intent IQ supports third-party cookie and cookieless environments, such as Safari and the future Chrome.
Over the next five years the Identity Resolution Software market will register a 10.7% CAGR in terms of revenue and the global market size will reach $1.7 billion by 2025, from $1.1 billion in 2019, according to Market Study Report. Spending on programmatic advertising in the US market is expected to hit $142 billion this year, per eMarketer.
Why we care. Programmatic advertising is supposed to give the transparency needed for marketers to have total visibility over their campaigns. This only works if marketers can see exactly what sites their ads are on and what kinds of audiences are seeing them. The end of third-party cookies has added to existing concerns around this.
