Lotame, the only flexible data solutions provider to future-proof connectivity and drive performance across all screens, today announced that Google has authorized use of the Lotame Panorama ID within its supply-side platform (SSP). With these integrations and multiple data partners supporting the Panorama ID, Lotame extends its cookieless data connectivity capabilities for marketers and publishers to 41 SSPs including leaders OpenX, PubMatic, Sovrn and SmartAdServer, and Sharethrough.
Launched in late 2020, Panorama ID is the first global, people-based, privacy-forward and interoperable identity solution for the cookieless open web. The unique identifier has seen tremendous growth in adoption during the past 12 months among publishers and across the digital media industry. That publisher adoption is critical and required for campaigns to be targeted at scale. As of April 2022, the Panorama ID is now the second most adopted cookieless ID solution in the world, deployed by more than 18,000 publishers globally.
Google has authorized the use of Panorama ID within its Encrypted Signals for Publishers (ESP) across Google Ad Manager (GAM). Through this integration, publishers are able to pass encrypted first-party signals via Panorama ID in the bid stream to SSP and demand-side platform (DSP) partners. Beta testing began in April 2022.
“Panorama ID continues to unlock new opportunities to reach addressable audiences on cookieless browsers like Safari and Firefox, adequately equipping brands and publishers with a global, privacy-compliant and interoperable identifier to power their advertising,” said Pierre Diennet, Head of Global Partnerships. “By partnering with the most widely adopted media platforms, we’re making significant headway on the industry’s collective mission to provide an identity solution that improves the ecosystem for all”.
Panorama ID is the only enriched global identity solution, helping increase publisher inventory value and enable advertisers to target first- and third-party audience data on ‘cookieless’ inventory at scale. With access to previously invisible audiences across browsers, publishers using these SSPs can get a head start on cookieless identity solutions, and will be protected once third-party cookies completely exit the ecosystem.
