Mobile ad-tech company CIAmedia today announced a deal with German print, online and mobile telephone directory service Das Telefonbuch. The directory has added CIAmedia's patented call triggered advertising SDK into its Android App, giving its user an automated and easy-to-use number suggest service.

Each time a user makes an unanswered business call, the CIAmedia SDK automatically provides alternative merchants based on location and merchant type which the user can then click to call. Up to 40% of business calls go unanswered when users call outside office hours, lines are busy, numbers are discontinued, businesses simply don't answer the phone, or the user only gets through to voicemail.

The CIAmedia SDK operates as part of the Das Telefonbuch app, in the background, so that alternatives are suggested to the user, even when the app is closed. With CIAmedia's technology inside the Das Telefonbuch app can now detect any unsuccessful business call, independent of where the user sourced and dialled the number from, e.g. following a search on Google, Bing, Yahoo, Yelp, Foursquare or any other site or app.

The service will drive more calls to Das Telefonbuch advertisers, greatly increasing value for advertisers that subscribe and appear in its directory.  In addition, CIAmedia's SDK multiplies impressions within the Das Telefonbuch App as every time a user cannot get through to a business the app automatically displays suggestions to the user, greatly increasing the value of its in-app inventory.  

Frank Gondorf, Managing Director for Das Telefonbuch-Servicegesellschaft said: "Integrating the CIAmedia SDK allows us to add a new level of convenience to our app users, making the Das Telefonbuch brand relevant to our users on a daily basis whenever a phone call goes unanswered. At the same time we provide an unprecedented opportunity for our advertisers to win new customers when other merchants miss calls."

Claudia Dreier-Poepperl, CEO and founder at CIAmedia, said: "We are delighted to see our patented ad-technology live in the largest market in Europe. For local search apps like Das Telefonbuch our technology represents an opportunity to increase the monetisation of their service offering by filling unanswered calls with highly targeted advertising. The benefits are threefold: increased call traffic to local advertisers, a massive uplift of in-app impressions, and an improved user experience for its customers."

Overgrown applications have given way to modular applications, driven by the need to break larger problems into smaller problems. Similarly large monolithic development processes have been forced to be broken into smaller agile development cycles. Looking at trends in software development, microservices architectures meet the same demands. Additional benefits of microservices architectures are compartmentalization and a limited impact of service failure versus a complete software malfunction. ...

Malicious agents are moving faster than the speed of business. Even more worrisome, most companies are relying on legacy approaches to security that are no longer capable of meeting current threats. In the modern cloud, threat diversity is rapidly expanding, necessitating more sophisticated security protocols than those used in the past or in desktop environments. Yet companies are falling for cloud security myths that were truths at one time but have evolved out of existence.
The cloud has transformed how we think about software quality. Instead of preventing failures, we must focus on automatic recovery from failure.
