Beanstock Media, the world’s first premium Publisher Trading Desk today announced it has acquired Onswipe, the world’s largest mobile publishing platform. With the acquisition, Beanstock enables publishers to deliver a better user experience and increase engagement on the mobile web while leveraging Beanstock’s proprietary Helix ad yield management platform. Now publishers will realize the maximum value of existing advertising across all devices while delivering a great user experience that increases time on site and pageviews. With the addition of Onswipe, Beanstock now works with over half of the comScore 1,000 publishers.
“Beanstock’s mission is to be the platform for digital publishers to make more money, increase efficiency and add control. As a result of this acquisition, we now achieve these goals in two ways; we improve ad value through our core Helix Publisher Trading Desk platform, and we increase audience value through the Onswipe user experience platform,” said Jim Waltz, CEO, Beanstock Media. “As content consumption shifts to mobile, digital publishers are struggling with creating and maintaining a high-quality and valuable ad-supported user experience across all screens. With the addition of Onswipe, we are bringing two innovative companies together to help publishers optimize their user experience while maximizing ad revenue on all devices.”
“Spark Capital has been a long-term and very collaborative investor in the Onswipe platform and team. The potential of Beanstock is immense and exciting - we’re very happy to be a shareholder in the combined company - and know that this is a great fit for both companies as Beanstock continue to grow,” said Alex Finkelstein, General Partner, Spark Capital.
“Today’s digital publishers are frustrated with the multitude of technology platforms available to help them thrive in a mobile-first world,” said Jonty Kelt, CEO, Onswipe. “By joining up with Beanstock, we are able to leapfrog our roadmap and offer user experience and monetization solutions for both desktop and mobile. We are excited to be an integral part of the end to end technology stack for digital publishing and, most importantly, reduce the payback period for digital publishers as they access a more holistic solution via our combined efforts.”
“Our vision originally set out to solve just one part of a publisher’s technology stack - user experience,” said Jason Baptiste, Founder, Onswipe. “As a part of Beanstock, we are now working towards a much larger vision to deliver the end to end technology stack for digital publishing through the combination of Helix and Onswipe.”
The deal is expected to close immediately. The combined entity will employ over 80 people with headquarters in both San Francisco and New York City. Both Onswipe and Beanstock’s executive teams will be joining the combined organization.

According to Forrester Research, every business will become either a digital predator or digital prey by 2020. To avoid demise, organizations must rapidly create new sources of value in their end-to-end customer experiences. True digital predators also must break down information and process silos and extend digital transformation initiatives to empower employees with the digital resources needed to win, serve, and retain customers.

Enterprises have been using both Big Data and virtualization for years. Until recently, however, most enterprises have not combined the two. Big Data's demands for higher levels of performance, the ability to control quality-of-service (QoS), and the ability to adhere to SLAs have kept it on bare metal, apart from the modern data center cloud. With recent technology innovations, we've seen the advantages of bare metal erode to such a degree that the enhanced flexibility and reduced costs that cl...
