Advertising Companies and Organizations

These are the organizations I come across in my research who are doing interesting things in the API space. They could be companies, institutions, government agencies, or any other type of organizational entity. My goal is to aggregate so I can stay in tune with what they are up to and how it impacts the API space.

Google Doubleclick

The Ad Exchange Buyer REST API allows your Real-Time Bidding application to access and update account information and to submit creatives. The API also allows an application (whether it does static bidding or real-time bidding) to discover direct deals that sellers make available.
