comScore Innovates to Deliver Single Metric for Global Multi-Platform Audiences

-- First Publisher MailOnline Reaches Unduplicated Audience of 100 Million Visitors Across Desktop, Smartphones, and Tablets Around the World

LONDON, March 31, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- comScore, Inc. (NASDAQ: SCOR), a leader in measuring the digital world, today announced an important audience measurement "first" in delivering a single unduplicated multi-platform global audience metric across desktop computers, smartphones and tablets.

This global audience number leverages comScore's proprietary multi-platform audience de-duplication methodology combined with comprehensive tagging to produce a measure of unique people being reached across the globe.

This initiative was tested in partnership with the leading News & Information property MailOnline, which had already tagged extensively with comScore.

Using the new measure, MailOnline's unduplicated global audience was recorded at 100.5 million visitors for January 2014 - a full 63 percent higher than MailOnline's comScore-measured global desktop-only audience of 61.6 million.

This single audience metric represents the unduplicated reach across PCs, laptops, smartphones and tablets and accounts for website, app and video audiences.

comScore now plans to offer this capability to other leading media brands with a global footprint.

"As more and more websites compete in a global marketplace, we are very excited to provide a credible and independent international audience reach number across all platforms and geographies," said Mike Pilcher, Senior Vice President Sales EMEA at comScore.

"We believe this approach offers great potential to other global media brands seeking to present their full offering to pan-national advertisers and their agencies."

Stephen Kinsella, Head of Analytics at MailOnline said: "As the world's largest English-language newspaper site*, with more than 50 percent of MailOnline's traffic now coming from outside of the UK, it is especially important for us to demonstrate the breadth of our audience across the globe. 

"Additionally, with a huge and growing proportion of our traffic coming from non-PC devices such as smartphones and tablets, it is commercially vital to both understand these incremental audiences and be able to represent them fully to the global media buying community. 

comScore's expertise in digital measurement, including their detailed understanding of consumers' digital media consumption, web analytics and platform overlap, made this an ideal initiative for MailOnline to support."

Today we can collect lots and lots of performance data. We build beautiful dashboards and even have fancy query languages to access and transform the data. Still performance data is a secret language only a couple of people understand.

They have a question on their mind like “How is my application doing” but no id...
In IT, we sometimes coin terms for things before we know exactly what they are and how they’ll be used. The resulting terms may capture a common set of aspirations and goals – as “cloud” did broadly for on-demand, self-service, and flexible computing. But such a term can also lump together diverse and even competing practices, technologies, and priorities to the point where important distinctions are glossed over and lost.
Predictive analytics tools monitor, report, and troubleshoot in order to make proactive decisions about the health, performance, and utilization of storage. Most enterprises combine cloud and on-premise storage, resulting in blended environments of physical, virtual, cloud, and other platforms, which justifies more sophisticated storage analytics. In his session at 18th Cloud Expo, Peter McCallum, Vice President of Datacenter Solutions at FalconStor, discussed using predictive analytics to mon...
All clouds are not equal. To succeed in a DevOps context, organizations should plan to develop/deploy apps across a choice of on-premise and public clouds simultaneously depending on the business needs. This is where the concept of the Lean Cloud comes in - resting on the idea that you often need to relocate your app modules over their life cycles for both innovation and operational efficiency in the cloud.

Information technology is an industry that has always experienced change, and the dramatic change sweeping across the industry today could not be truthfully described as the first time we've seen such widespread change impacting customer investments.

In his general session at @ThingsExpo, Dave McCarthy, Director of Products...
Regulatory requirements exist to promote the controlled sharing of information, while protecting the privacy and/or security of the information.

Fact: storage performance problems have only gotten more complicated, as applications not only have become largely virtualized, but also have moved to cloud-based infrastructures. Storage performance in virtualized environments isn’t just about IOPS anymore.

In his session at Cloud Expo, Dhiraj Sehgal, Product and Marketing at Tintri, sha...
The Internet of Things (IoT) promises to simplify and streamline our lives by automating routine tasks that distract us from our goals. This promise is based on the ubiquitous deployment of smart, connected devices that link everything from industrial control systems to automobiles to refrigerators.
