How demand side platforms are reshaping digital media buying

What does a demand-side platform do, exactly? They typically offer the following common features:

  • A single system that connects to multiple ad exchanges and other media suppliers, accessed by a single user interface.
  • Campaign management tools to manually target or automatically optimize campaigns.
  • Automated bid management capabilities, often including real-time bidding.
  • Advanced analysis and “decisioning” about the value and desirability of ad impression opportunities.
  • Ability to capture and manage brand data and third-party data to improve targeting.
  • Control of budgets and campaign rates — across all media sources.
  • Fully integrated reporting of campaign performance across multiple media suppliers.

How do demand-side platforms compare to some of the more common systems and media sources currently used in media planning? In the current display buying model, networks and exchanges selling ad impressions typically define audience categories, set pricing models, and require media buyers to access a different system for each provider in their media plan, across all of their campaigns.
