Sigma Systems, a recognized industry leader, has been enlisted by the Society of Cable Telecommunications Engineers (SCTE) to speak on leveraging subscriber data for advanced advertising at the upcoming SCTE Cable-Tec Expo in Philadelphia.
Cable operators are now looking at offering advanced advertising in order to substantially increase their advertising revenues, and to protect their advertising market share against erosion from Internet advertising and IPTV competitors.
In order to compete more effectively against Internet advertising, cable operators must upgrade their advertising platforms and subscriber-analytics capabilities in order to provide more Internet-like advertising qualities.
Brian Cappellani, CTO for Sigma Systems, will present a technical paper titled “Unlocking the Value of Your Subscriber Data for Advanced Advertising.”
Workshop attendees will learn:
*** the various sources of subscriber information of value to advanced advertising;
*** the challenges and requirements for collecting, aggregating and correlating this subscriber information;
*** how subscriber-targeting profiles can be used to support various advanced advertising delivery models for linear and non-linear television viewing; and,
*** the role of SCTE 130 and “Subscriber Information System” for supporting and automating the advanced advertising processes; including determination of audience qualifiers for use by third parties that want to advertise their products and services to a cable operator’s subscriber base.
As CTO for Sigma Systems, Brian Cappellani is responsible for the architectural and technology vision and deliverables for Sigma’s award-winning Service Management Platform and Solutions Suites. He is a 12-year telecommunications veteran with an extensive background in designing, architecting, and building large-scale operations and billing support systems. Previously, Brian worked for Accenture holding senior-level architecture, engineering and development management positions both internally and with Accenture’s telecommunications practice (wireless, satellite). Mr. Cappellani is an active contributor to the SCTE 130 specification pertaining to advanced advertising and also an Advisory Director to the TM Forum’s Board of Directors.
