1plusX is a data management- and predictive marketing platform that uses a holistic and innovative approach to create anonymised user- and object profiles. By connecting information from all channels and touchpoints, the 1plusX software detects behavioural patterns and turns them into predictions in real time. These predictions can help publishers, broadcasters and marketers to optimize which content or advertisements are displayed. When doing that, clients retain full ownership of their data at any time since it is only used for the purposes of that very company and the data is not shared with third parties. The quality of 1plusX data profiles is periodically tested through independent audits. 1plusX was founded by CEO Jürgen Galler, Prof. Dr. Thomas Hofmann (ETH Zurich) and Joachim Schoss (Founder of Scout24) two years ago. At their swiss office the company is concentrating expertise from all kinds of professional fields and advises digital agencies, media and telecommunications companies. 1plusX currently employs 20 people.

The ad management services offered with this unique platform are flexible, independent of individual publishers and marketers, and compatible with existing publishing systems. Sharing resources in this area reduces costs and provides publishers access to the latest, leading-edge technologies.

Ready to fulfil your requirements and get set for the future: our premium partners Salesforce, BrightGen and Jitterbit provide the IT power, while AdTech Factory provides the industry expertise. Welcome to the future of ad management.

The future of journalism lies in good content. But how can journalists free up the time for this when dealing with exponentially growing information flows yet shrinking temporal resources?

Discover the strengths, opportunities, challenges and future plans in mobile publishing at our "Work & Chill" Stand No. 9 at the Digital Innovators' Summit 2017 under the header "EVERSIFY – because magazines and newspapers need time". We'll provide you with practical, real-life case studies of the successful implementation of our mobile publishing solution Eversify at both large daily newspapers as well as regional publishers and agencies.

Experience teaches us that most journalists' biggest frustration is a particular lack of time. The constant flow of information input from agencies and various sources means that the amount of information to be processed (texts, pictures, videos, statistics and quotations) is steadily and exponentially increasing, causing less and less time to be made available for the core responsibilities and tasks of the journalists - researching, evaluating, writing and editing texts. This is not only a result of decreasing staff numbers in editorial offices and rising economic constraints following declining sales. It also results from the demanding modern journalistic world pressuring editors to spend more and more time on technical and editorial tasks that go far beyond their own role. By doing so, they are expected to master a broad technological understanding, which by far extends the training they have received in their education. But good content takes time!

Eversify, a cloud-based publishing service from Agfa Graphics for mobile and stationary platforms, is designed to give journalism what it needs for success: time for content! The SaaS solution is characterized by the highest automation, maximum flexibility and high user-friendliness, thereby enabling mobile publishing with the utmost efficiency. We are familiar with the complexity of workflows and understand how to generate enriched e-paper or HTML5 based app and web solutions from these data. That is why we have equipped Eversify with unlimited flexibility. This means high compatibility with all data sources and CMS systems based on XML structures. The connection of ad servers or linking to your social media activities are also important core functions of Eversify.

With Eversify, you can automatically transfer data from your layout and editorial systems and publish it - without compromises - on any available tablet, smartphone or web browser as a newspaper or magazine based on HTML5. Daily, hourly, depending on how current you want to offer your product in the market.

Each customer receives user analyses in real-time - with just one click, enabling any user to continuously optimize his offer. This automation and the offered diversification frees up time for real journalism. Editorial offices are finally able to produce high-quality content and publish it electronically via the digital distribution channels – faster and with fewer resources. Come see for yourself at booth 9 - we look forward to meeting you!

Amstelnet's Adaptive Morphing: Changing the rules of engagement

Website design has become a major driver of profit. Websites that match the preferences and information needs of visitors are efficient; those that do not, forego potential profit and may be driven from the market.  Amstelnet's Adaptive Morphing Suite allows a marketer to compile a segment based on specific criteria and attach a unique morphing configuration to each visitor segment. Each rule has an exclusive morph (group) associated with it. By observing visitors' (historical) clickstreams, each by the visitor initiated event becomes a decision point that reveals more about the visitor's present state of mind. These events trigger your website to continuously morph, changing its functionality, content and aesthetics.

Adaptive website morphing is a prime example of targeting optimal marketing communications to diverse customer segments even if product features and brand identity are identical in all market segments. Morphing allows for those criteria to be highlighted that are most relevant for each particular segment. A website might morph by changing the content or banners displayed, by reducing a menubar to just a few options or - the exact opposite - by expanding it. Morphing also allows for functional characteristics to be added or deleted, such as links, tools and dialogue boxes and thus serve the content that best improve brand image, intention to purchase or, said in a more general way, that support the overall objective of the website.

Content Insights called "One of the most important new innovations in the editorial arena," by John Wilpers, the Senior Director of Innovation Media Consulting and author of the "Innovation in Magazine Media 2017-2018 World Report," is an editorial analytics suite created by editors, for editors. We invented our key indicator, CPI, to immediately help support editorial decisions rather than present another set of graphs, charts and numbers that are hard to read and harder to interpret. We track a huge amount of data to reveal true content engagement and real attention time. We examine long-tail and evergreen content performance so editors can get the most out of that data in the shortest amount of time. We go to the cutting edge of big data science so that editors don't have to.

The company offers its own content and layout editors and page planning, which enables the creation of various forms of publication - from newspaper to magazine. A drag-and-drop workflow editor is also available.

Furthermore, EidosMedia offers a comprehensive social media integration (publication via different channels, content integration, trend visualization of social media) as well as A / B testing. In the future there will also be a multivariate testing. In addition, on-premise can be delivered via a private or public cloud (Amazon AWS).

Publishers need relevant traffic to monetize their great content. With the kontextR software premium websites easily generate additional traffic and revenues for their own native-ads, advertorials, video or paid online subscriptions.

The Munich startup is a growing software vendor and addresses the special needs of named online and mobile publisher. Technologically it is an Ad- and Content-Service for inText-Links and completely customizable inText-Widgets.
Publishers by themselves create their own Link- and Widget-campaigns for Advertising or Content-Distribution fast and simple. These contents then are automatically embedded contextually into the text articles. So no user data is needed and the campaigns best fit to the context of the publisher's editorial articles.

kontextR is no Ad-Network. Paying customers for the SaaS are premium publisher and not advertisers. Consequently the publisher holds data sovereignty and data is not sold uncontrolled to 3rd parties.
