My Opinion: Focus at Programmatic Advertising
Based on my extended experience in this space, I do believe that the majority of online ad buying will be programmatic in the near future.

I know that several global players are fighting for strategic partnerships or stakes in these 2 companies. Sorry, I won’t mention any names.
If not acquired in 2013 or 2014, one of the above companies might prepare for an IPO in 2015 or 2016.
The strange thing about the internet is that everybody knows Google and Facebook. Rubicon and Appnexus are not top of mind, but they certainly have their eyez in the prize.
That’s my advice to brands, broadcasters and publishers: Stay on top of the trends and keep looking in non-linear ways. Because there are some hidden empires you should be in the know about.
Or better phrased by former ice hockey rock star Wayne Gretsky: A good hockey player plays where the puck is. A great hockey player plays where the puck is going to be.
Developing a groundbreaking business model? It starts with a clear vision and clever strategy.
