With the release of one of the industry's first MRAID 2.0-compliant SDKs, agencies will be able to quickly and easily run creative across applications from different publishers. As a result, agencies will have a better understanding of mobile and be more inclined to leverage mobile into their media buys.

"The MRAID 2.0 specification is an important step in mobile rich media standardization, and we felt it was crucial to get these enhancements to our customers and partners as quickly as possible," said Julie Preis, SVP of Product Management for Mocean Mobile. "This level of standardization will drive an increase in mobile rich media spending, and this SDK will enable our platform users to capitalize on this immediately as well as long-term."

Specific advances in MRAID 2.0 include:

  • Offering more sophisticated size changes in ads, allowing ads to grow to partial screen and change size multiple times as users interact with creative
  • Standardizing how the ad creative gets information about screen size, device capabilities and other details relevant to desired ad behavior
  • Clarifying the handling of video in the context of mobile rich media banner and interstitial ads
  • Giving ad designers greater control over existing MRAID 1.0 expandable ads
  • Ensuring that MRAID 2.0-compliant software development kits (SDKs) can display MRAID 1.0 ads without glitches

"The IAB congratulates Mocean Mobile on embracing MRAID 2.0," said Joe Laszlo, Senior Director of the IAB's Mobile Marketing Center of Excellence. "Supporting MRAID 2.0 will make it easier to create rich, engaging mobile ads that can scale across different apps and devices."

IoT & Smart Cities Stories
When talking IoT we often focus on the devices, the sensors, the hardware itself. The new smart appliances, the new smart or self-driving cars (which are amalgamations of many ‘things'). When we are looking at the world of IoT, we should take a step back, look at the big picture. What value are these devices providing. IoT is not about the devices, its about the data consumed and generated. The devices are tools, mechanisms, conduits. This paper discusses the considerations when dealing with the...

Machine learning has taken residence at our cities' cores and now we can finally have "smart cities." Cities are a collection of buildings made to provide the structure and safety necessary for people to function, create and survive. Buildings are a pool of ever-changing performance data from large automated systems such as heating and cooling to the people that live and work within them. Through machine learning, buildings can optimize performance, reduce costs, and improve occupant comfort by ...

This is often especially true in financial services, where the legacy environment is many times unable to keep up with the rapidly shifting demands of the consumer. The constant pressure to provide complete, omnichannel delivery of customer-facing solutions to meet both regulatory and customer demands is putting enormous pressure on...

Disruption, Innovation, Artificial Intelligence and Machine Learning, Leadership and Management hear these words all day every day... lofty goals but how do we make it real? Add to that, that simply put, people don't like change. But what if we could implement and utilize these enterprise tools in a fast and "Non-Disruptive" way, enabling us to glean insights about our business, identify and reduce exposure, risk and liability, and secure business continuity?
