A Programmatic Buyer’s Look at the “Unknown Delta”
Recently the Incorporated Society of British Advertisers (ISBA) set out to shine a light on the programmatic advertising supply chain, but despite exhaustive efforts to map and attribute every advertising dollar, the subsequent report could not account for a sizable fraction of digital advertising budgets. This “unknown delta,” as the ISBA calls it, is associated with causes ranging from fraud to inventory reselling. But regardless of the reasons, the ISBA report exposes a complex system that lacks transparency.
“[The unknown delta] is not meant to be assumed as fraud….This is important for anyone who is thoughtfully assessing this study; the unknowns can ideally become knowns.”
