TEL-AVIV, Israele e NEW YORK, January 8, 2013 /PRNewswire/ --
Matomy Media Group annuncia l'acquisizione di MediaWhiz, nota agenzia di servizi completi nel settore dei media digitali integrati. Questa acquisizione fa seguito all'investimento di Matomy in Adperio nel 2011 ed è parte della strategia di espansione aziendale negli Stati Uniti.
La transazione è stata gestita dalla banca d'investimento Q Advisors.
Con questa acquisizione Matomy si attesta come il più importante gruppo di performance operativo su scala globale. Hakan Lindskog, ex CEO di Neverblue, è stato nominato CEO di MediaWhiz.
Matomy è un'azienda globale basata sulla performance, specializzata nel raggiungimento dei risultati delle attività di marketing attraverso una varietà di canali media: marketing e display affiliato, mobile marketing, ricerca e moneta virtuale, al servizio di 500 inserzionisti di punta a livello mondiale attraverso 7.000 editori in 85 Paesi.
"Dopo aver stabilito una forte sinergia all'interno delle nostre attività, abbiamo deciso questa acquisizione come supporto alla nostra visione strategica per la realizzazione di una piattaforma di performance globale cross-media," ha dichiarato Ofer Druker, CEO di Matomy Media Group.

Il successo di MediaWhiz nel performance marketing online e nello spazio media digitale è ben riconosciuto. La rivista mThink / Revenue Performance ha classificato l'azienda al secondo posto tra i network in base al parametro costo-per-acquisizione. L'Agency Report Advertising Age del 2012 ha classificato MediaWhiz all'undicesimo posto tra le agenzie di ricerca marketing e al ventunesimo come network di agenzia digitale degli USA.
MediaWhiz combina tutte le competenze nel marketing online (affiliazione, ricerca, social media, display, e-mail e acquisizione dati) a tecnologie di fornitura e analisi proprietarie, garantendo la massima efficacia ed efficienza possibile a una vasta schiera di inserzionisti di primo piano.
"MediaWhiz possiede una straordinaria base di clienti ed editori," ha affermato Lindskog, CEO di MediaWhiz.

Commentando l'acquisizione, Tom Lanzetta, Chief Operating e Financial Officer di MediaWhiz, ha detto: "L'apporto di Matomy si fonda su una solida base di acquirenti media, su una presenza globale e sull'esperienza di un'azienda di performance. Confidiamo nella nostra capacità di far leva su tutto questo per offrire una proposta di più consistente valore alla nostra già consolidata clientela di base."
MediaWhiz è una delle principali agenzie nel settore dei media digitali integrati, impegnata a supportare diversi marchi commerciali al fine di coinvolgere, acquisire e fidelizzare più proficuamente la clientela, combinando capacità marketing, tecnologia proprietaria e competenze nel campo dei media digitali. I campi operativi sono: marketing affiliato, ricerca, social media, display advertising, e-mail e acquisizione dati.

Too often with compelling new technologies market participants become overly enamored with that attractiveness of the technology and neglect underlying business drivers. This tendency, what some call the “newest shiny object syndrome,” is understandable given that virtually all of us are heavily engaged in technology. But it is also mistaken. Without concrete business cases driving its deployment, IoT, like many other technologies before it, will fade into obscurity.

Contrary to mainstream media attention, the multiple possibilities of how consumer IoT will transform our everyday lives aren’t the only angle of this headline-gaining trend. There’s a huge opportunity for “industrial IoT” and “Smart Cities” to impact the world in the same capacity – especially during critical situations. For example, a community water dam that needs to release water can leverage embedded critical communications logic to alert the appropriate individuals, on the right device, as soon as they are needed to take action.
