Google Ad Manager

You can send your first- and third-party data linked to Oracle Data Cloud cookies and mobile advertising IDs (MAIDs) to the Google Ad Manager platform.

Google Ad Manager (formerly known as DoubleClick for Publishers or DFP) provides access to a network of unique users and tools for managing, delivering, and measuring the performance of ads. Use your Oracle Data Cloud platform data with Google Ad Manager to create complex audiences for precise targeting at scale.

Important! Make sure to follow the Google naming standards for audiences that include third-party data.
