PubMatic nomina come Vice Presidente e Amministratore Delegato delle aree EMEA e APAC l'ex dirigente di Google e InMobi Rob Jonas

LONDRA, February 19, 2013 /PRNewswire/ --

Quest'ultima assunzione andrà a sostegno di un incremento globale della spesa per la pubblicità basata su RTB fino a 13,9 miliardi di dollari entro il 2016

PubMatic (http://www.PubMatic.com), la piattaforma di media digitali per publisher, ha annunciato oggi la nomina di Rob Jonas, esperto di tecnologia e piattaforme pubblicitarie digitali, a nuovo Vice Presidente e Amministratore Delegato delle aree EMEA e APAC. Jonas entrerà a far parte di PubMatic a metà marzo per dirigere le operazioni sui mercati EMEA e APAC e farà capo al Presidente di PubMatic, Kirk McDonald. La sua responsabilità principale sarà dirigere le vendite internazionali e favorire una costante espansione globale della Piattaforma commerciale strategica della società, che rende possibile la vendita programmatica di spazi pubblicitari. A livello globale, IDC prevede che la spesa per la pubblicità RTB (basata su offerte in tempo reale) crescerà da 1,4 miliardi di dollari nel 2011 a 13,9 miliardi di dollari nel 2016."Vista la crescita degli acquisti programmatici e la continua espansione di PubMatic, la presenza di un amministratore delegato di levatura internazionale con l'esperienza di Rob nella vendita di piattaforme pubblicitarie per le società tecnologiche e di media, è una risorsa indiscutibile," sostiene Kirk McDonald, Presidente di PubMatic.  "In poco tempo, Rob Jonas ha contribuito al successo materiale e all'espansione internazionale di alcune delle società interattive di maggior successo. Capisce la cultura dell'innovazione e ogni volta riesce a svilupparla in modo coerente, da start-up come InMobi a grandi società come Google."

Jonas vanta un'esperienza di oltre 15 anni nello sviluppo di società tecnologiche ad elevato tasso di crescita nelle regioni EMEA, Nord America e Asia-Pacifico. Ha ricoperto il ruolo di Vice Presidente e Amministratore Delegato dell'area EMEA presso InMobi per tre anni, trasformandola in una società leader del mercato, con milioni di dollari di fatturato e oltre 100 dipendenti in sette sedi. Prima di entrare a far parte di InMobi occupava un'importante posizione nella sede di Google a Londra come Direttore dei partenariati strategici dell'area EMEA. In Google, gestiva inoltre i rapporti con alcuni dei principali clienti regionali, tra cui aziende quali AOL ed eBay. Rob ha lavorato anche per Yahoo! Europe, in seguito all'acquisizione di Overture Services Limited (precedentemente Goto.com) da parte della famosa azienda. Durante l'incarico presso Overture, ha contributo all'espansione globale della società in 10 paesi.

"Grazie alla sua esperienza e al suo entusiasmo Rob darà nuovo impulso alle nostre attività a livello internazionale," ha affermato McDonald aggiungendo: "PubMatic aiuta i propri clienti a ottimizzare le entrate del loro portafoglio complessivo di inventario e sappiamo che la tecnologia RTB sarà applicata a tutti i canali.

"Provenendo da una società impegnata nella tecnologia mobile, ho notato due tendenze innegabili negli ultimi tre anni," sostiene Rob Jonas. "Innanzitutto, l'ascesa del mobile computing e la conseguente convergenza di piattaforme mobili, tablet e PC da parte di consumatori, editori e publisher. La seconda tendenza è la crescente importanza di soluzioni unificate e multipiattaforma per la monetizzazion,e con una sempre maggiore inclusione di offerte programmatiche e in tempo reale. PubMatic è una delle pochissime aziende in grado di riunire tali tendenze ed è posizionata in modo ottimale per trarne vantaggi."

La notizia di oggi arriva in un momento di considerevole crescita per PubMatic, che sta consolidando la propria posizione di leader nel settore delle piattaforme di media digitali per publisher su vari tipi di media. Uno studio sull'impatto economico totale svolto nell'ottobre del 2012, commissionato da PubMatic e condotto da Forrester Consulting, concentrato su clienti selezionati di PubMatic, ha segnalato un ritorno sugli investimenti, a tre anni, corretto in base al rischio, del 334% per i publisher che sfruttano la Piattaforma commerciale strategica della società. Inoltre, lo scorso novembre, PubMatic è stata considerata la società di Online Advertising con la crescita più veloce nel settore Internet negli Stati Uniti, classificandosi complessivamente al 20° posto in Nord America nell'elenco 2012 "Technology Fast 500™" stilato da Deloitte. PubMatic lavora attualmente con i principali publisher d'Europa, tra cui IDF, National Rail Enquiries e Monster.

Si ricorda che Rajeev Goel, co-fondatore e CEO di PubMatic si troverà nel Regno Unito lunedì 18 febbraio 2013. Rob Jonas parteciperà al Mobile World Congress dal 25 al 28 febbraio 2013 e sarà disponibile per le interviste.

In addition to all the benefits, IoT is also bringing new kind of customer experience challenges - cars that unlock themselves, thermostats turning houses into saunas and baby video monitors broadcasting over the internet. This list can only increase because while IoT services should be intuitive and simple to use, the delivery ecosystem is a myriad of potential problems as IoT explodes complexity. So finding a performance issue is like finding the proverbial needle in the haystack.

According to Forrester Research, every business will become either a digital predator or digital prey by 2020.

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.

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. Unfortunately, comparatively few of the devices currently deployed have been developed with an eye toward security, and as the DDoS attacks of late October 2016 have demonstrated, this oversight can ...
What happens when the different parts of a vehicle become smarter than the vehicle itself? As we move toward the era of smart everything, hundreds of entities in a vehicle that communicate with each other, the vehicle and external systems create a need for identity orchestration so that all entities work as a conglomerate. Much like an orchestra without a conductor, without the ability to secure, control, and connect the link between a vehicle’s head unit, devices, and systems and to manage the ...
"Once customers get a year into their IoT deployments, they start to realize that they may have been shortsighted in the ways they built out their deployment and the key thing I see a lot of people looking at is - how can I take equipment data, pull it back in an IoT solution and show it in a dashboard," stated Dave McCarthy, Director of Products at Bsquare Corporation, in this SYS-CON.tv interview at @ThingsExpo, held November 1-3, 2016, at the Santa Clara Convention Center in Santa Clara, CA.
Unsecured IoT devices were used to launch crippling DDOS attacks in October 2016, targeting services such as Twitter, Spotify, and GitHub. Subsequent testimony to Congress about potential attacks on office buildings, schools, and hospitals raised the possibility for the IoT to harm and even kill people. What should be done? Does the government need to intervene? This panel at @ThingExpo New York brings together leading IoT and security experts to discuss this very serious topic.
We are always online. We access our data, our finances, work, and various services on the Internet. But we live in a congested world of information in which the roads were built two decades ago. The quest for better, faster Internet routing has been around for a decade, but nobody solved this problem. We’ve seen band-aid approaches like CDNs that attack a niche's slice of static content part of the Internet, but that’s it. It does not address the dynamic services-based Internet of today. It does...

More and more brands have jumped on the IoT bandwagon. We have an excess of wearables – activity trackers, smartwatches, smart glasses and sneakers, and more that track seemingly endless datapoints. However, most consumers have no idea what “IoT” means. Creating more wearables that track data shouldn't be the aim of brands; delivering meaningful, tangible relevance to their users should be. We're in a period in which the IoT pendulum is still swinging. Initially, it swung toward "smart for smar...
