BERLIN, GERMANY -- (Marketwired) -- 01/28/14 -- SponsorPay, a leading mobile supply side platform, today announced its fourth consecutive year of double digit growth and reaffirmed its transformation into a mobile ad tech company. SponsorPay's progress trended alongside the prior three years, remaining strong with 82 percent YOY revenue growth in December 2013. Furthermore, mobile jumped from comprising just 25 percent of impressions (ads shown to users) in January 2013 to 70 percent in December. The success of the company's shift to mobile is underscored by SponsorPay's recent induction into VentureBeat's index of the Top Ten Mobile Advertising Companies.
Ranked alongside Facebook and Google in the index, which is compiled based on feedback from readers and clients, SponsorPay was lauded for easy integration, product support and a "fan favorite" dashboard. This resounding endorsement coupled with SponsorPay's steady progress lays the foundation for the company's 2014 plans to enhance its Ad Monetization Platform's mediation layer and Ad Marketplace as well as continue its mobile expansion.
SponsorPay's Mediation Platform addresses key challenges faced by developers in a crowded app and mobile advertising space. The Mediation Platform launched with drag and drop SDK integration, prompting VentureBeat to highlight SponsorPay as the "easiest mobile ad network to install and deploy" in the aforementioned ad Index. 2013 was dedicated to rolling out product enhancements that allow developers to automatically optimize based on eCPMs, prioritize ad networks on a country basis and view results through a consolidated and transparent unified revenue reporting system.
"Fragmentation is a critical issue faced by developers," said Janis Zech, co-founder and CRO of SponsorPay. "Our solution empowers developers to manage their ad monetization strategy on a central dashboard equipped with features that simplify and streamline, all while supporting developers' direct relationships with ad networks."
SponsorPay's Mediation Platform is complemented by its Global Ad Marketplace, which enables developers to open their ad inventory to bids from ad networks, demand side platforms, agencies and direct advertisers. The marketplace's success helped drive increased audience and app reach for demand partners. SponsorPay's audience (monthly active users served ads by SponsorPay) climbed by 62 percent while the number of mobile applications integrating SponsorPay's Ad Monetization Platform increased by 65 percent.
To fuel and sustain this company growth, SponsorPay continues to extend its global footprint, with substantial investment in the U.S. market. The company welcomed Ted Liang as VP of Global Ad Marketplace & Partnerships to its new dedicated office space in the heart of San Francisco. The San Francisco office nearly quadrupled in 2013 to 15 people, including SponsorPay CEO and co-founder Andreas Bodczek, who relocated from the company's Berlin headquarters. In 2014, SponsorPay plans to build on this momentum, adding an additional 10 new hires to its Bay Area team.
SponsorPay fuels the app economy by creating solutions for smarter ad monetization. Our comprehensive Ad Monetization Platform includes mediation, an ad marketplace and ad serving capabilities to empower app developers to integrate, manage and optimize all sources of ad revenues.
The Ad Monetization Platform gives developers a single point of integration for ad networks, automated yield optimization and a central reporting dashboard. Developers benefit from making their inventory available for real-time bidding through SponsorPay's Ad Marketplace and can also leverage our vast network of apps to drive user acquisition.
SponsorPay has been honored as one of the world's top advertising companies by VentureBeat, OnMedia, Red Herring, White Bull and others. We are headquartered in Berlin with offices in San Francisco, New York, Los Angeles, London, Paris, Shanghai and Tokyo.
Much of the value of DevOps comes from a (renewed) focus on measurement, sharing, and continuous feedback loops. In increasingly complex DevOps workflows and environments, and especially in larger, regulated, or more crystallized organizations, these core concepts become even more critical. In his session at @DevOpsSummit at 18th Cloud Expo, Andi Mann, Chief Technology Advocate at Splunk, will show how, by focusing on 'metrics that matter,' you can provide objective, transparent, and meaningfu...

In the world of DevOps there are ‘known good practices’ – aka ‘patterns’ – and ‘known bad practices’ – aka ‘anti-patterns.' Many of these patterns and anti-patterns have been developed from real world experience, especially by the early adopters of DevOps theory; but many are more feasible in theory than in practice, especially for more recent entrants to the DevOps scene. In this power panel at @DevOpsSummit at 18th Cloud Expo, moderated by DevOps Conference Chair Andi Mann, panelists will dis...

We’ve worked with dozens of early adopters across numerous industries and will debunk common misperceptions, which starts with understanding that many of the connected products we’ll use over the next 5 years are already products, they’re just not yet connected. With an IoT product, time-in-market provides much more essential feedback than ever before. Innovation comes from what you do with the data that the connected product provides in order to enhance the customer experience and optimize busi...

The increasing popularity of the Internet of Things necessitates that our physical and cognitive relationship with wearable technology will change rapidly in the near future. This advent means logging has become a thing of the past. Before, it was on us to track our own data, but now that data is automatically available. What does this mean for mHealth and the "connected" body? In her session at @ThingsExpo, Lisa Calkins, CEO and co-founder of Amadeus Consulting, will discuss the impact of wea...

If there is anything we have learned by now, is that every business paves their own unique path for releasing software- every pipeline, implementation and practices are a bit different, and DevOps comes in all shapes and sizes. Software delivery practices are often comprised of set of several complementing (or even competing) methodologies – such as leveraging Agile, DevOps and even a mix of ITIL, to create the combination that’s most suitable for your organization and that maximize your busines...
