Yocto (Programmatic DSP) Revealed | Part 1 – Introduction

Before we begin this ongoing series, it’s important to us that the reader has a clear understanding of Yocto and how the platform contributes to the programmatic DSP space. As technology evolved in the advertising industry, we realized that programmatic media buying is where the future of advertising was headed. With that said, 17 months ago, the adMobix management team put their heads together to design and execute a programmatic platform well above industry standards – we called it – Yocto. In each part of the series, you will have a thorough and detailed understanding of each major Yocto feature: “User Targeting (Geo, Device, Attribute, Day Parting)”, “Contextual Targeting” vs “Site/App Targeting” and “Optimization”.

What is Yocto?

Yocto is a programmatic Demand Side Platform (DSP) that helps advertisers purchase media in the most cost effective way programmatically through complex machine learning algorithms. In other words, artificial intelligence is the brain and true power behind this platform. Yocto, when defining the word, means the smallest measurable unit. It parallels our ability to help advertisers automatically target unique audiences that will have the best return on their ad spend – right down to the smallest measurable detail. Depending on the level of targeting for a specific campaign, Yocto will display ads across multiple screens, including mobile in-app, mobile web and traditional web, or even a user’s smart televisions or gaming systems.
