Oracle Acquires Moat
The agreement is the latest entrant in the list of recent marketing technology-related acquisitions the tech giant has made over the recent years, including the acquisition of data management software company BlueKai and ad-targeting data firm DataLogix in 2014.
Moat will become part of the Oracle Data Cloud, but will remain an independent platform providing marketers and publishers measurement, analytics and intelligence for clients including Nestle, Procter & Gamble, Unilever, ESPN, Facebook, NBCUniversal, Snapchat, and YouTube.
Moat's platform tracks browsing and viewing habits on desktop and mobile devices, and even connected TVs.
Founded in 2010, Moat helps advertisers and publishers measure whether people see and interact with online ads.
Convincing advertisers that they're getting what they're paying for is a big problem for publishers.
Oracle has inked a deal to acquire digital measurement and ad verification company Moat.
