At the heart of Digilant is AIM (Audience Investment Management). The AIM Consolidated Media BuyingPlatform is our comprehensive end-to-end platform that aggregates data from multiple sources- including Digilant’s own proprietary sources- to identify the most productive media placements for brands in nanoseconds.What is a consolidated media buying platform?As defined by Forrester, it’s a fully integrated technology stack that ties together Demand-Side Platform, Data Management Platform and Sell-side Platform functionality to provide transparency, control and access to premium inventory that is unavailable on ad exchanges.
The advantage of integrating the technology stack:Ingest customer data to create audience and page indexes without data leakageFeedback loop between analytic engine and bidders creates smarter bidding for improved performance
There are dozens of ad technology platforms but only four are truly consolidated media buying platforms, end-to-end solutions that connect agency platforms to publishers: Google acquired Doubleclick, Admeld and Invite to create an integrated stackAdobe acquired Omniture, Auditude, Demdex and Efficient Frontier to create an end-to-end solutionWhat sets Digilant apart is its customizable algorithms, vertical industry solutions and multi-cultural and general market segmented targeting.
Real-time display advertising represents a revolution that is heavily dependent on having access to customer data and powerful analytic and targeting tools. Unlike the competition, Digilant focuses on full-funnel targeting, combining prospecting and retargeting techniques.

AIM stores the optimization ‘learnings’ – typical DSP’s can’t.AIM allows for discontinuous campaigns. Campaigns that run for two weeks each month, but repeat monthly. Or run quarter 1 and then again in quarter 3.This means the campaigns level of optimization picks up where it left off that last campaign. It doesn’t have to start learning from ground zero again like most DSP’s. This is a huge advantage translating to substantially improved campaign performance.
