David follows up with a great book on header bidding that every yield manager, ad server admin, and developer should read. He very clearly describes the technology itself, possible solutions, and their application to everyday practice. In this book you get a great overview of not only how the whole supply chain works, but also how to avoid ad fraud.
Second David’s book on Programmatic is, again, remarkable. Well structured, easy to read, stuffed with mindblowing facts and brilliantly sourced for discipline experts. Useful both for Programatic junior position in agency or yield manager within publishing house, as well as CMO who needs to undestand how to reach for transparency and improve sustainability of the complex digital marketing efforts.
David provided a truly comprehensive introduction to the AdTech industry. It's not necessary to read multiple blogs anymore. David has a unique ability to explain all aspects of AdTech with context. It's the ultimate resource for anyone in an AdOps role.
I recommend this book not only to specialists on the publishers' side but also to every programmatic specialist. In order to get the most out of programmatic campaigns, it is important to understand how the system works in detail and, unfortunately, the systems that abuse and parasitize this ecosystem. I am very glad that the author is one of the first in our region to address the topic of sustainability and carbon neutrality in programmatic.
Once again, an extremely useful publication that has the right ambition to bring context and therefore a better understanding to all stakeholders who come into contact with this issue. I think it will definitely help any developer to better understand the context of the assignment and all yield managers to realise the complexity of the process behind the revenue number in their platform.
The programmatic ecosystem is getting more complex every year. The journey of an ad impression from a publisher's website to an advertiser's buying system can be long and complex. At the same time, it's important for both parties to understand the process and be able to work with it and possibly optimize it. That's where this book can help – it provides a sufficiently detailed yet easy-to-understand description of the relationships in a supply chain, along with concrete examples and tips that both publishers and advertisers can use.
