NEW YORK, Nov. 14, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Omnicom Media Group, the media services division of Omnicom Group Inc. (NYSE: OMC), today unveiled a transformative Data Management Platform (DMP) with unprecedented campaign performance reporting and audience targeting capabilities on a single global platform. 

Deployed by Omnicom Media Group's Annalect unit, the Annalect DMP is a neutral platform (not connected to third party buying platforms) designed to optimize results across all publishers and audiences, and to provide clients of OMD and PHD media agencies with entirely unbiased audience buys.  With the ability to compare and analyze a vast array of variables across multiple data categories to enable a more holistic view of customer insights and campaign performance, the Annalect DMP will eliminate reach overlap, reduce CPMs and identify better performing audiences for advertisers. 

The new solution elevates Omnicom's current DMP housed within its Accuen programmatic media arm, and is the industry's first agency-owned end-to-end data management solution.

Aggregate Knowledge, a Neustar service, has been selected as the worldwide media intelligence partner for the Annalect DMP.  Recognized as the industry's most robust and flexible data management platform, Aggregate Knowledge (AK) is independent of any buying platform -- assuring that client data will not be repurposed -- and offers the broadest range of publisher acceptance.

This agreement -- the first-ever single platform standardization by an agency -- follows last week's acquisition of AK by Neustar. 

Combining these best-in-class media intelligence and processing services with the leading digital clients of Omnicom Media Group creates a new standard in the application of audience analytics and programmatic buying, and it advances the drive toward an actions-based advertising ecosystem.  "Clients are interested in how audience data is used to create new currencies and marketing platforms.  In addition to programmatic media activation, the data sets that this initiative creates will be used for the creation of new planning tools," says Annalect CEO Scott Hagedorn

"Our goal in investing in the Annalect DMP is simple: deliver strategic advantage to Omnicom clients by providing an entirely new level of visibility, audience precision, and optimization opportunities through a single global platform," says Daryl Simm, Chairman and CEO of Omnicom Media Group. "In terms of achieving marketing efficiencies, the Annalect DMP will be transformative, and it exemplifies the future of media services."
