AD TECH AND MARTECH
Upsolver | December 01, 2022
Upsolver, the company dedicated to making data in motion accessible to every data practitioner, announced support for the AWS for Advertising and Marketing initiative from Amazon Web Services (AWS) to help accelerate advertising and marketing transformation.
AWS for Advertising and Marketing is an initiative featuring services and solutions purpose-built to meet the needs of advertising agencies, marketers, publishers, ad technology providers, and analytics service providers. The initiative helps customers deliver personalized ad experiences, optimize ad serving performance and cost, and innovate on audience segmentation and attribution. It simplifies the process for industry customers to select the right tools and partners helping accelerate their production launches and see faster time to value.
Upsolver SQLake is a platform for building data pipelines that ingest and combine real-time events with batch data sources for up-to-the-minute analytics. It provides ground-breaking time-to-value, since any SQL user can build a pipeline simply by writing a query. SQLake automates the pipeline engineering tasks that create severe development bottlenecks – chores such as orchestration, file system optimization and infrastructure scaling.
AWS empowers advertisers and marketers to reinvent workloads with solutions to improve audience and customer data management, privacy-enhanced data collaboration, advertising platforms, marketing measurement and ad intelligence, and personalized digital customer experiences. For customers looking for prescriptive, solution-specific support, AWS for Advertising & Marketing identifies leading industry partners in each area.
With SQLake, advertisers and marketers achieve a leap in time to delivery and data freshness for use cases such as machine learning (ML) model training, campaign performance management and optimization, dynamic audience segmentation, real-time bidding, ROI reporting, data science and ad hoc analytics. Beyond making data engineers 10X more productive it enables self-service for data users who know SQL – such as data scientists, analysts, ad/marketing ops personnel, product managers and account managers.
One benefit of migrating or building advertising and marketing workloads on the most widely adopted cloud is the number of integrations and distribution channels connecting shared data with flexibility and interoperability. Whether you are seeking third party data or tools for better managing first party data, there are both AWS and third-party solutions offered in the AWS Data Exchange, AWS Marketplace, along with the largest community of AWS Partner Network (APN) members, including Upsolver.
“As a global leader in smart ad serving, omnichannel personalization, and consumer intelligence, Clinch ingests and processes billions of events per day into our AWS data lake, a scenario that is largely supported by Upsolver” said Yaron Cohen, Vice President of Research and Development at Clinch.

Emodo | October 13, 2022
Emodo, the intelligent exchange creating more memorable connections through personal, relevant and rewarding advertising experiences, today announced the launch of Adapt, a rich and dynamically-optimized native ad offering that drives increased engagement and higher impact for brands and advertisers. This ad offering is transforming the next era of programmatic advertising by enabling personalized storytelling and sustainable KPIs.
“With its one size-fits-all approach, standard native advertising is no longer enough for advertisers and brands,” said Tom Anderson, Chief Marketplace Development Officer at Emodo. “Our innovative advanced native offering brings a richer and smarter approach to advertising, presenting brands with a dynamic, attention-grabbing ad format to drive engagement and performance, and publishers with a new revenue opportunity through an exclusive, differentiated ad format, as well as a better user experience that aligns with their website’s context and aesthetic.”
Adapt native ads are built via Emodo’s creative rendering engine, which has the ability to layer on various effects including loading, image, text, call-to-actions, layouts and styling to create limitless permutations of an ad unit. Emodo then leverages its artificial intelligence-powered dynamic optimizer to understand the most optimal features and generate captivating designs for publishers and their audiences. This cutting edge technology unlocks new capabilities for creative testing and performance at scale that are not available in traditional native formats.
In support of its Adapt launch, today, Emodo has also released brand-new survey data on consumer affinity for native advertisements. The survey included standard display, standard native and Adapt native ads across three different publishers’ pages, and used eye-tracking to understand engagement with the various different ad formats. Findings include:
Across three campaigns tested, whenever viewable, the Adapt unit drove statistically significantly more Attention as compared to any other unit tested, at the 95% confidence interval, holding campaign, publisher, unit size, audience, and everything else constant.
For an automotive campaign, Adapt drove 13% higher Message Association as compared to either a standard Display or a standard Native unit
Adapt drove an 71% higher lift in Message Association as compared to Static Native for a Discount Clothing Retailer.
For a CPG campaign, Emodo’s unit drove 17% higher attention (time spent via eye-tracking) as compared to standard Display, and 11% higher attention as compared to standard Native.
“Social platforms like Facebook, Instagram and Snap have proven that highly optimized native executions are impactful but have, until now, only been available behind their walls,” continued Anderson. “By bringing our future-proof innovations to the market, we are elevating the opportunities for advertisers beyond the walled gardens and staying ahead of the curve.”
In an effort to double down on more impactful advertising, Emodo has also refreshed its brand mission and focus: to build more memorable connections through its global exchange, making advertising more impactful for brands and profitable for publishers. Emodo leverages rich, dynamic creative experiences, such as Adapt, augmented reality, and shoppable ads, to help advertisers capture attention and build brand love. This, paired with ID-independent targeting and better science, fuels personalization and drives performance.
“As we look toward the future, our intention in this next era of Emodo is to bring richer, more sophisticated approaches to personalized advertising experiences,” added Alistair Goodman, CEO of Emodo.
