Kochava | February 15, 2023
On February 14, 2023, Kochava, a real-time data solutions provider, announced its acquisition of Machine Advertising, joining brands with app marketers and enhancing its measurement solutions and presence in the EMEA region.
Kochava and Machine Advertising collaborated throughout the 2022 year for its incremental lift analyses with Machine's Always-on Incremental Measurement (AIM) product. This collaboration resulted in a productized approach to always-on incremental measurement services, according to Kochava Advertisers. In addition, this AIM product can work with other measurement toolsets and Kochava, the opposite of any mobile measurement partner (MMP) solution.
AIM, a marketing mix modeling tool, provides real-time incremental insights and enhances advertisers' drives. It also makes it easy for advertisers to learn the impact of factors like seasonality and channel saturation on the advertisement. It also suggests artificial intelligence (AI) recommendations optimize budget allocation. As a result, it is a critical tool for CFOs forecasting around a recession environment, increasing return on ad spend (ROAS) even in economic uncertainty.
Founder and CEO of Kochava, Charles Manning, said, "Machine's product focus to deliver always-on incrementality measurement aligns perfectly with our own objectives to add instant value to our clients. As a company built on customer-driven innovation, we are always looking for new best-in-class solutions to add to our solutions suite."

This partnership also allows buyers to run private marketplace (PMP), programmatic guaranteed (PG), and direct deals via Equativ with access to Seedtag’s exclusive inventory to deliver ads in the right place.
