“We are proud to work with Chocolate in bringing real-time visibility and transparency into marketplace operations. The industry has long suffered from black boxes and we are doing our bit to promote radical transparency on programmatic data,” said Lokesh Anand, Co-Founder and CEO of Sigmoid. “As a leader in the mobile video ads – one of the fastest growing segments of advertising – it is no surprise that they are one of the front-runners in this change.”
“Our aim at Sigmoid, is to help users analyze large volumes of data in near real-time. Programmatic exchanges see over a hundred billion auctions per day,” said Mayur Rustagi, CTO at Sigmoid. “We wanted to create a real-time analytics platform, which could seamlessly scale to these volumes while enabling real-time querying on months or even years of historical data.”
The Chocolate Platform offers two core products, Chocolate Marketplace and Chocolate Mediation. Both these platforms are experiencing exponential growth and are seeing billions of auctions per day.
“With both our products witnessing strong demand, it made sense for us to invest in a robust analytics platform that provides global support that can manage these huge volumes of data in real-time,” said Saurabh Bhatia, Chocolate’s CEO. “Our goal is to move away from the black-box paradigm and give our clients and partners real-time visibility into the marketplace operations.”
