Data-Management PlatformFeedback.png


At its most simple, a data-management platform (DMP) is "a piece of software that sucks up, sorts and houses information, and spits it out in a way that’s useful for marketers, publishers and other businesses."[1] MASB member iab (Interactive Advertising Bureau) explains: "Publishers and marketers are aggregating more data, from more sources, than ever before. And in order to realize the full value of that information, they require a technology-driven solution—a central hub—to seamlessly (and rapidly) collect, integrate, manage and activate those large volumes of data." For more information, see the iab article and white paper.[2]
