Lotame (www.lotame.com), the leading global provider of data enrichment solutions to drive customer insights and turn personas into addressable advertising, today announced that Adform and Smart will integrate Lotame Panorama ID, the first global, people-based, privacy-compliant and interoperable solution for the open web.
Adform, the only global, independent, and fully integrated advertising platform built for modern marketing has merged its programmatic workflow with the Lotame Panorama ID, in order to extend its cookieless targeting with even greater scale and greater enrichment capabilities.
“We believe identity must be solved at the source, by consumer-focused companies that create first-party or log-in IDs and collect the necessary consent,” said Jochen Schlosser, Adform CTO. “That is how we have built our fully flexible setup that enables transactions on all types of IDs. We are excited to partner with Lotame to further enhance our privacy-first targeting as the industry switches from third-party cookies to first-party IDs.”
Smart, the leading independent ad monetization platform built for premium publishers to serve demanding buyers, has extended the use of Lotame Panorama ID for its clients using both its Adserver or SSP (supply-side platform). Smart’s aim is to fully support ID alternatives and to allow publishers to benefit from improved user recognition and monetization of their programmatic transactions.
“Ensuring our customers reach their business goals in a post-cookie world is key and Lotame’s Panorama ID solution will enhance our ability to process and deliver targeting without the need for cookies,” said Arnaud Créput, CEO at Smart. “User privacy and identity topics are key components of Smart’s strategy. Our collaboration with players such as Lotame, that share our objective to put quality, transparency, and privacy at the very heart of the value chain, is a step further in our vision for an improved advertising landscape.”
“Lotame has a view for the future in line with what marketers and publishers want to achieve: a people-based, privacy first solution that is open to all,” said Andy Monfried, CEO at Lotame. “Collaboration will be key for the future of advertising and identity presents an opportunity, but education is needed on how all the industry solutions can work together. Our partnerships with Adform and Smart will play an important role in strengthening the collaboration needed across the ecosystem in adopting new approaches for a post-cookie world.”
Support for Lotame’s Panorama ID continues to expand within the industry, with Smart and Adform now joining the likes of Magnite, Advance Local, Sovrn, Eyeota, and multiple data partners, in becoming advocates for the ID solution.
