Mobile Video Marketing Company Achieves Significant Milestone, More Than Quadrupling Prior Year's Results

LOS ANGELES, CA -- (Marketwired) -- 01/27/14 -- AdColony, the leading mobile video marketing platform, today announced it has surpassed a $100 million annual gross revenue run rate, more than quadrupling 2013 revenue versus 2012. Further, the fourth quarter of 2013 marked the company's tenth consecutive quarter of record revenue growth.

AdColony provides mobile video marketing solutions to a global mobile advertising market that is forecast to reach $29 billion in 2014. Mobile video represents the fastest growing advertising format in mobile, with spending up 166% in 2013, driven by consumers who currently spend more than 2 hours and 21 minutes per day on non-voice mobile activities, nearly a full hour more than in 2012.

"AdColony's landmark $100 million revenue run rate reflects the power and value to advertisers of our innovative mobile video product and technology," said Will Kassoy, CEO of AdColony. "Advertisers and publishers achieve significant return on their marketing investments using our platform, and with our ongoing focus on product innovation, AdColony is poised for continued growth in 2014."

AdColony's Instant-Play™ HD mobile video product and platform serves razor sharp, full-screen video ads instantly in HD and has rapidly become the standard used by Fortune 500 brands and leading app publishers.

Average eCPM increased by 30 percent in the past 12 months while overall publisher earnings increased 418 percent. A&E, ABC News, Flixster, Glu, History, Lifetime, Scopely, Slacker, Supercell and Viggle are among the thousands of apps with HD mobile video advertising from AdColony.

Ryan Hinkle, AdColony board member and Managing Director at Insight Venture Partners, noted, "AdColony's acute focus on the consumer experience coupled with publisher-friendly architecture has placed them among the thought leaders in the rapidly evolving mobile video advertising market. Demand for their solution continues to increase as advertisers experience solid results."

It is ironic, but perhaps not unexpected, that many organizations who want the benefits of using an Agile approach to deliver software use a waterfall approach to adopting Agile practices: they form plans, they set milestones, and they measure progress by how many teams they have engaged.

The problem is that to get the results they want, they have to ch...

For far too long technology teams have lived in siloes. Not only physical siloes, but cultural siloes pushed by competing objectives.

Organizations planning enterprise data center consolidation and modernization projects are faced with a challenging, costly reality. Requirements to deploy modern, cloud-native applications simultaneously with traditional client/server applications are almost impossible to achieve with hardware-centric enterprise infrastructure. Compute and network infrastructure are fast moving down a software-defined path, but storage has been a laggard. Until now.
Without a clear strategy for cost control and an architecture designed with cloud services in mind, costs and operational performance can quickly get out of control. To avoid multiple architectural redesigns requires extensive thought and planning.

HyperConvergence came to market with the objective of being simple, flexible and to help drive down operating expenses. It reduced the footprint by bundling the compute/storage/network into one box. This brought a new set of challenges as the HyperConverged vendors are very focused on their own proprietary building blocks. If you want to scale in a certain way, let's say you identified a need for more storage and want to add a device that is not sold by the HyperConverged vendor, forget about it...
