“The Quantcast RTA Academy was a really insightful and useful way of demystifying this exciting and ever-evolving sector. The course was useful for all levels of knowledge in our agency and I would highly recommend it to anyone looking to learn more about how Real-time Bidding actually works, the different players in the market, and the upcoming trends and challenges in this area like attribution and viewability.”

“With a growing number of clients' attention moving to Real-time advertising, it was important for me to ensure that Starcom’s planning team were as informed as possible about what is happening in the marketplace. Working with Quantcast on a tailored Academy solution meant we had different training for people based on their knowledge and were able to roll this out for the entire planning team who came back with insights into issues such as fraud, viewability and trading practices in the RTB space.”
