Das führende Werbetechnologie-Unternehmen SponsorPay benennt sich in Fyber um

Der neue Markenname steht für die integrierte Monetarisierungslösung des Unternehmens, die App-Hersteller bei der Ertragssteigerung von Werbeeinnahmen auf mobilen Endgeräten unterstützt

SAN FRANCISCO, USA, 17 Juli 2014 - SponsorPay, eine mobile Supply Side Plattform, hat heute seine Umfirmierung in Fyber bekannt gegeben. Fyber ermöglicht es App-Herstellern wie GREE International, Inc., Glu Mobile, Inc., Cie Games, Inc. und vielen weiteren Unternehmen, sämtliche Werbeeinnahmequellen durch eine einheitliche Plattform zu integrieren, zu verwalten und zu optimieren. Seit der Gründung im Jahr 2009 ist das Unternehmen weltweit auf inzwischen 180 Mitarbeiter gewachsen und plant nun die Einstellung weiterer 70 Mitarbeiter bis Ende dieses Jahres. Um das starke Marktwachstum in den USA zu fördern, ist in diesem Jahr eine Verdreifachung der Personalstärke im Firmensitz in San Francisco vorgesehen. Fyber feiert das Rebranding und das Firmenwachstum bei der Casual Connect USA mit einer Produktvorstellung (Messestand Nr. 416), einer Paneldiskussion und einer Markeneinführungsparty.

„Bei der Umfirmierung in Fyber geht es um mehr als nur um einen neuen Firmennamen. Wir haben in den letzten achtzehn Monaten unsere Produktangebote kontinuierlich ausgebaut und unsere Partner dadurch in die Lage versetzt, intelligentere Monetarisierungsstrategien für Mobile Advertising zu entwickeln und umsetzen zu können", erklärt Andreas Bodczek, Mitbegründer und CEO von Fyber. „Unser Unternehmensziel ist es, die fragmentierte Werbeumgebung auf mobilen Endgeräten zu vereinheitlichen und Lösungen zur Ertragssteigerung unserer Partner anzubieten. Die Umfirmierung in Fyber ist für unser Unternehmen ein natürlicher Entwicklungsschritt in unserem Bemühen, die Zukunft der mobilen Werbung zu gestalten."

Über Fyber haben Entwickler Zugang zu einer Supply Side Platform, die eine komplette Produktpalette zur intelligenteren Werbemonetarisierung und Nutzerakquise beinhaltet. Heute erreicht Fyber monatlich über 100 Millionen Einzelnutzer und arbeitet mit tausenden weltweit führenden App-Herstellern und Werbetreibenden zusammen, denen die Plattform zur Integration, Verwaltung und Optimierung ihrer Werbeeinnahmen dient. Die Plattform hat einen starken und stetigen Zuwachs verzeichnet - etwa wurde allein im letzten Quartal die Anzahl der Integrationen um 63 Prozent gesteigert. Gleichermaßen stiegen die vermittelten Werbeumsätze um 250 Prozent an.

„In diesem sich kontinuierlich entwickelnden Markt suchen wir Partner und Tools, mit denen wir unsere Monetarisierungsstrategien für mobile Werbung auf ein neues Level bringen können", erläutert Alex Rosen, VP of Product der GREE International, Inc. „Fyber hat sich dieser Aufgabe intensiv gewidmet - die Plattform bietet Tools, die ein App-Hersteller benötigt, um erfolgreich und nachhaltig Werbeumsätze zu erzielen. Wir freuen uns auf weitere innovative Produktentwicklungen des Fyber-Teams."

Fyber verfolgt einen offenen Werbe-Ansatz und ermöglicht Entwicklern den Zugang zu hunderten Demand Side Plattformen und Werbenetzwerken, wie etwa Facebook Audience Network, Google AdMob, Apple iAd, und InMobi. Mit Fyber gewinnen App-Hersteller einen vollständigen Überblick über ihre Einnahmequellen aus Werbungeinblendungen durch eine zentrale cloud-basierte Software und können so neue Monetarisierungschancen erkennen und nutzen. Das Hauptangebot von Fyber umfasst:

  1. Ad Network Mediation - Mit einer einzelnen SDK-Integration können App-Hersteller mehrere Werbenetzwerke direkt integrieren, verwalten und optimieren. So können sie ihre Werbenachfrage erhöhen und dabei ihre direkten Vertragsbeziehungen mit den Werbenetzwerken beibehalten.
  2. Ad Marketplace - App-Hersteller haben Zugriff auf die Kampagnen von hunderten Nachfragepartnern, Videonetzwerken, Agenturen und anderen, ohne zusätzliche Ressourcen investieren zu müssen. Dadurch können die App-Entwickler höhere Auslastungsraten ihrer Werbeplätze und TKPs erreichen.
  3. User Acquisition - Ermöglicht es App-Herstellern im großen Maßstab neue, relevante Nutzer für ihre Apps auf iOS und Android zu gewinnen. Kampagnenarten umfassen CPI (Abrechnung nach installierten Apps) und CPE (Abrechnung nach Aktionen der User innerhalb einer App, z.B. Erreichen eines bestimmten Levels innerhalb eines Spiels).
  4. Verschiedene Werbeformate - Fyber bietet Optionen von Video- und Rich-Media-Interstitials zu „opt-in" Werbeformaten wie Offer Wall und Rewarded Video an. In letzteren können Nutzer Premium-Inhalte freischalten, indem sie Videos schauen, an Umfragen teilnehmen, etc. So deckt Fyber den kompletten Bedarf an mobilen Werbeformaten durch eine einzige Plattform ab.
  5. Dashboard - App-Entwicklern bietet Fyber ein einheitliches Tool mit dem sie sämtliche Umsatzquellen für Werbeeinnahmen in einer kompakten Ansicht analysieren und neue Monetarisierungspotenziale nutzen können. Der zugrundeliegende firmeneigene Vorhersagealgorithmus ermöglicht es den Kunden, die am meisten lukrative Werbung auf Grundlage des voraussichtlichen Verhaltens der Nutzer zu schalten.

Im 18-Milliarden-Dollar schweren Werbemarkt für mobile Endgeräte wählten App-Hersteller die Firma Fyber (SponsorPay) vor Kurzem in den VentureBeat-Index der Besten zehn Unternehmen für Mobile Advertising. In diesem Index, der anhand von Leser- und Kundenfeedback zusammengestellt wird, rangiert Fyber (SponsorPay) neben Facebook und Google und wurde besonders für die einfach zu integrierende Plattform, den umfangreichen Service und die Analysetools gelobt.

The 3rd International Internet of @ThingsExpo, co-located with the 16th International Cloud Expo - to be held June 9-11, 2015, at the Javits Center in New York City, NY - announces that its Call for Papers is now open. The Internet of Things (IoT) is the biggest idea since the creation of the Worldwide Web more than 20 years ago.
Cultural, regulatory, environmental, political and economic (CREPE) conditions over the past decade are creating cross-industry solution spaces that require processes and technologies from both the Internet of Things (IoT), and Data Management and Analytics (DMA). These solution spaces are evolving into Sensor Analytics Ecosystems (SAE) that represent significant new opportunities for organizations of all types. Public Utilities throughout the world, providing electricity, natural gas and water, are pursuing SmartGrid initiatives that represent one of the more mature examples of SAE. We have s...
The security devil is always in the details of the attack: the ones you've endured, the ones you prepare yourself to fend off, and the ones that, you fear, will catch you completely unaware and defenseless. The Internet of Things (IoT) is nothing if not an endless proliferation of details. It's the vision of a world in which continuous Internet connectivity and addressability is embedded into a growing range of human artifacts, into the natural world, and even into our smartphones, appliances, and physical persons. In the IoT vision, every new "thing" - sensor, actuator, data source, data con...
The Internet of Things is tied together with a thin strand that is known as time. Coincidentally, at the core of nearly all data analytics is a timestamp. When working with time series data there are a few core principles that everyone should consider, especially across datasets where time is the common boundary. In his session at Internet of @ThingsExpo, Jim Scott, Director of Enterprise Strategy & Architecture at MapR Technologies, discussed single-value, geo-spatial, and log time series data. By focusing on enterprise applications and the data center, he will use OpenTSDB as an example t...
How do APIs and IoT relate? The answer is not as simple as merely adding an API on top of a dumb device, but rather about understanding the architectural patterns for implementing an IoT fabric. There are typically two or three trends: Exposing the device to a management framework Exposing that management framework to a business centric logic Exposing that business layer and data to end users. This last trend is the IoT stack, which involves a new shift in the separation of what stuff happens, where data lives and where the interface lies. For instance, it's a mix of architectural styles ...
An entirely new security model is needed for the Internet of Things, or is it? Can we save some old and tested controls for this new and different environment? In his session at @ThingsExpo, New York's at the Javits Center, Davi Ottenheimer, EMC Senior Director of Trust, reviewed hands-on lessons with IoT devices and reveal a new risk balance you might not expect. Davi Ottenheimer, EMC Senior Director of Trust, has more than nineteen years' experience managing global security operations and assessments, including a decade of leading incident response and digital forensics. He is co-author of t...
The Internet of Things will greatly expand the opportunities for data collection and new business models driven off of that data. In her session at @ThingsExpo, Esmeralda Swartz, CMO of MetraTech, discussed how for this to be effective you not only need to have infrastructure and operational models capable of utilizing this new phenomenon, but increasingly service providers will need to convince a skeptical public to participate. Get ready to show them the money!
The Internet of Things will put IT to its ultimate test by creating infinite new opportunities to digitize products and services, generate and analyze new data to improve customer satisfaction, and discover new ways to gain a competitive advantage across nearly every industry. In order to help corporate business units to capitalize on the rapidly evolving IoT opportunities, IT must stand up to a new set of challenges. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Jeff Kaplan, Managing Director of THINKstrategies, will examine why IT must finally fulfill its role in support of its SBUs or face a new round of...
One of the biggest challenges when developing connected devices is identifying user value and delivering it through successful user experiences. In his session at Internet of @ThingsExpo, Mike Kuniavsky, Principal Scientist, Innovation Services at PARC, described an IoT-specific approach to user experience design that combines approaches from interaction design, industrial design and service design to create experiences that go beyond simple connected gadgets to create lasting, multi-device experiences grounded in people's real needs and desires.
Enthusiasm for the Internet of Things has reached an all-time high. In 2013 alone, venture capitalists spent more than $1 billion dollars investing in the IoT space. With "smart" appliances and devices, IoT covers wearable smart devices, cloud services to hardware companies. Nest, a Google company, detects temperatures inside homes and automatically adjusts it by tracking its user's habit. These technologies are quickly developing and with it come challenges such as bridging infrastructure gaps, abiding by privacy concerns and making the concept a reality. These challenges can't be addressed w...
The Domain Name Service (DNS) is one of the most important components in networking infrastructure, enabling users and services to access applications by translating URLs (names) into IP addresses (numbers). Because every icon and URL and all embedded content on a website requires a DNS lookup loading complex sites necessitates hundreds of DNS queries. In addition, as more internet-enabled ‘Things' get connected, people will rely on DNS to name and find their fridges, toasters and toilets. According to a recent IDG Research Services Survey this rate of traffic will only grow. What's driving t...
Scott Jenson leads a project called The Physical Web within the Chrome team at Google. Project members are working to take the scalability and openness of the web and use it to talk to the exponentially exploding range of smart devices. Nearly every company today working on the IoT comes up with the same basic solution: use my server and you'll be fine. But if we really believe there will be trillions of these devices, that just can't scale. We need a system that is open a scalable and by using the URL as a basic building block, we open this up and get the same resilience that the web enjoys.
Connected devices and the Internet of Things are getting significant momentum in 2014. In his session at Internet of @ThingsExpo, Jim Hunter, Chief Scientist & Technology Evangelist at Greenwave Systems, examined three key elements that together will drive mass adoption of the IoT before the end of 2015. The first element is the recent advent of robust open source protocols (like AllJoyn and WebRTC) that facilitate M2M communication. The second is broad availability of flexible, cost-effective storage designed to handle the massive surge in back-end data in a world where timely analytics is e...
We are reaching the end of the beginning with WebRTC, and real systems using this technology have begun to appear. One challenge that faces every WebRTC deployment (in some form or another) is identity management. For example, if you have an existing service – possibly built on a variety of different PaaS/SaaS offerings – and you want to add real-time communications you are faced with a challenge relating to user management, authentication, authorization, and validation. Service providers will want to use their existing identities, but these will have credentials already that are (hopefully) i...
"Matrix is an ambitious open standard and implementation that's set up to break down the fragmentation problems that exist in IP messaging and VoIP communication," explained John Woolf, Technical Evangelist at Matrix, in this SYS-CON.tv interview at @ThingsExpo, held Nov 4–6, 2014, at the Santa Clara Convention Center in Santa Clara, CA.
P2P RTC will impact the landscape of communications, shifting from traditional telephony style communications models to OTT (Over-The-Top) cloud assisted & PaaS (Platform as a Service) communication services. The P2P shift will impact many areas of our lives, from mobile communication, human interactive web services, RTC and telephony infrastructure, user federation, security and privacy implications, business costs, and scalability. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Robin Raymond, Chief Architect at Hookflash, will walk through the shifting landscape of traditional telephone and voice services ...
Explosive growth in connected devices. Enormous amounts of data for collection and analysis. Critical use of data for split-second decision making and actionable information. All three are factors in making the Internet of Things a reality. Yet, any one factor would have an IT organization pondering its infrastructure strategy. How should your organization enhance its IT framework to enable an Internet of Things implementation? In his session at Internet of @ThingsExpo, James Kirkland, Chief Architect for the Internet of Things and Intelligent Systems at Red Hat, described how to revolutioniz...
Bit6 today issued a challenge to the technology community implementing Web Real Time Communication (WebRTC). To leap beyond WebRTC’s significant limitations and fully leverage its underlying value to accelerate innovation, application developers need to consider the entire communications ecosystem.
The definition of IoT is not new, in fact it’s been around for over a decade. What has changed is the public's awareness that the technology we use on a daily basis has caught up on the vision of an always on, always connected world. If you look into the details of what comprises the IoT, you’ll see that it includes everything from cloud computing, Big Data analytics, “Things,” Web communication, applications, network, storage, etc. It is essentially including everything connected online from hardware to software, or as we like to say, it’s an Internet of many different things. The difference ...
