comScore and Google Partner to Offer Actionable Audience Metric for Brands

comScore vCE to be Available to All DoubleClick Customers, Across All Screens for Display and Video Formats

RESTON, Va., Feb. 10, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- comScore (NASDAQ: SCOR) and Google are partnering to offer a real-time audience metric designed to help brand marketers easily measure campaigns across screens. After a period of testing, comScore vCE will be available to DoubleClick marketer and publisher clients, built into the widely used ad management platform. This partnership will be announced today by Neal Mohan, Google's VP of Display Advertising, during his keynote presentation at the IAB Annual Leadership Meeting at 2:30 PM PT in Palm Desert, California.

"We're deeply committed to creating metrics that are as meaningful for brands as the click is in performance advertising, and we have a number of efforts underway to provide actionable brand measurement," said Neal Mohan. "To accomplish this, we're investing in our own technologies as well as partnering with trusted industry leaders, like comScore. We look forward to working with them to give brand buyers and media sellers better access to real-time insights."

"This partnership between comScore and Google is much more than a simple technology integration between two industry-leading companies," said Serge Matta, President of comScore. "It allows us to radically simplify digital media buying for the industry, while enhancing quality and accountability. This directly addresses many of the everyday challenges that prevent our clients from investing further in digital."

comScore's vCE metric will be built directly into the DoubleClick ad server that publishers and marketers use to deliver their ads. It will initially be available in the U.S. later this year for desktop-based display and video ads, with eventual plans to expand the service for mobile and cross-platform. Upon the completion of its development, comScore and Google plan to jointly seek MRC accreditation for the service. comScore will continue to offer vCE independently of the DoubleClick platform, as well.

Partnership Improves Ease of Use, Cross-Screen Measurability and Actionability
This partnership will provide the following benefits to the media ecosystem:

1) Ease of Use
vCE data will be available within the DoubleClick platform, enabling advertisers and publishers to measure campaigns with a single click.

2) Cross-Screen Comparable Metrics at Scale
Cross-screen comparable audience delivery metrics – such as reach, frequency and GRPs – based on comScore vCE will be included in the DoubleClick platform. This provides clients immediate access to industry-trusted, neutral data that's directly comparable to TV and other traditional media.

3) Actionability
By offering comScore vCE directly in the ad server, marketers and publishers will have access to real-time audience insights – and the ability to act on those insights to improve campaign performance.

Industry Support for this Partnership
"What's exciting about the comScore-Google integration is the ability to leverage real-time cross-media comparable metrics and rich demographics within a single platform. For us, this means a level of simplicity and actionability that we haven't experienced before, and it's something that can help move multi-channel media planning, measurement and optimization forward in a major way."

- Jon Suarez-Davis, Vice President, Global Digital Strategy & North American Media, Kellogg Company

"This is a tipping point for brand advertising in the digital realm. As a vCE company, SMG strongly supports any effort to deliver comScore's campaign validation on a wider scale and with more workflow efficiency, and there is no platform that can better accomplish that than DoubleClick."

- Lisa Weinstein, President, Global Digital, Data & Analytics, Starcom MediaVest Group

"IPG Mediabrands already runs the vast majority of our digital campaigns through DoubleClick and we use vCE for validation, so this partnership helps streamline processes for us while ensuring the actionable real-time insights we rely on. Such a far-reaching strategic integration brings an ability to easily measure and optimize brand campaigns that can really propel digital advertising forward. We applaud both comScore and Google for striking this strategic partnership and look forward to helping them evolve this ever-growing ecosystem."

- Kristi Argyilan, President of MAGNA Global North America

"Today's announcement represents a commitment to transparency in digital advertising that will eliminate barriers to achieving greater scale and efficiency while rewarding content publishers who deliver on their promise of quality audiences. With many advertisers currently increasing their spend on display, video and mobile, it's important to have an infrastructure in place that allows them to spend with confidence."

- Scott McDonald, SVP Research at Conde Nast Publications

Recently, WebRTC has a lot of eyes from market. The use cases of WebRTC are expanding - video chat, online education, online health care etc. Not only for human-to-human communication, but also IoT use cases such as machine to human use cases can be seen recently.

However, the benefit of WebRTC for IoT is not only its convenience and interopera...
In his session at 20th Cloud Expo, Scott Davis, CTO of Embotics, discussed how automation can provide the dynamic management required to cost-effectively deliver microservices and container solutions at scale. He also discussed how flexible automation is the key to effectively bridging and seamlessly coordinating both IT and developer needs for component orchestration across disparate clouds – an increasingly important requirement at today’s multi-cloud enterprise.
Given the popularity of the containers, further investment in the telco/cable industry is needed to transition existing VM-based solutions to containerized cloud native deployments. The networking architecture of the solution isolates the network traffic into different network planes (e.g., management, control, and media). This naturally makes support for multiple interfaces in container orchestration engines an indispensable requirement.

Any startup has to have a clear go –to-market strategy from the beginning. Similarly, any data science project has to have a go to production strategy from its first days, so it could go beyond proof-of-concept. Machine learning and artificial intelligence in production would result in hundreds of training pipelines and machine learning models that are continuously revised by teams of data scientists and seamlessly connected with web applications for tenants and users.
When shopping for a new data processing platform for IoT solutions, many development teams want to be able to test-drive options before making a choice. Yet when evaluating an IoT solution, it’s simply not feasible to do so at scale with physical devices.

When dealing with multiple application or transport protocols, you would be...
