Programmatic services

Deliver exceptional experiences with total visibility across your media supply chain.

Getting to transparency

Technology disruption is reshaping the media agency landscape as we know it. This is an opportunity to start doing things differently and drive serious business outcomes, but organizations are being held back by traditional models that cannot fulfill the promise of modern digital advertising.

What's more, discontent is mounting around lack of data ownership and transparency in the media supply chain and misaligned incentives.

New data-driven technologies are emerging that help advertisers see through their spend and take greater control of the media supply chain. Our transparent programmatic services cut out complexity and give control of your spend and data.

Take back control

Advertisers understand that to take control of their media supply chain they need to own their technology and data. The difficulty lies in finding a transparent partner who can aid the transformation and reveal opportunities to unlock ROI from their ad spend.

Whether an advertiser is just looking for a new agency partner or looking to transition their media buying in-house, Accenture Interactive provides programmatic services that help marketers drive value from their media dollars and build an advertising ecosystem that they can trust. 

We do this by providing integrated services to help marketers achieve greater cost transparency, take advantage of their data and design audience-driven campaigns. Our approach is unique; we don’t arbitrage media and we leverage Accenture’s global delivery footprint to integrate strategy, creative, data, technology and analytics together, creating superior outcomes that simply wouldn’t be possible otherwise.


Brand marketers that purchase digital ads programmatically have either completely moved programmatic buying in-house or partially begun the process, with plans to continue further down the path.

Partners with IAB

We’ve partnered with the Interactive Advertising Bureau (IAB) to realize this vision of a new media model built for transparency. IAB is a trusted voice in the digital media industry and, as the first strategic partner of IAB’s Data Center of Excellence, we will help them to set priorities, strategies and deliverables for the industry’s leading companies. We’ve also conducted joint research into the essentials of in-house programmatic capabilities. Check out the US and European reports below.
