Excellent Yield Optimization and Data Management Capabilities Fuel PubMatic’s Competitive Edge

NEW YORK – PubMatic (, a media technology company that provides a holistic inventory, data and advertising revenue optimization platform for digital publishers, announced that Forrester Research, Inc. has named it a leading sell-side platform.

“PubMatic has been leading the way for helping publishers maximize revenue for nearly five years and we’re delighted that our technology, innovation and commitment to service have been recognized by both Forrester and our clients,” said Rajeev Goel, Co-Founder and CEO of PubMatic. “In the coming months, we will continue to deliver industry-leading products and services that help publishers navigate the increasing complexity of the digital marketplace.”
