Over-the-Top (OTT) Content Delivery System Fueled by Gigya's Customer Identity Management Platform to Provide Engaging and Personalized TV Viewing Experiences

MOUNTAIN VIEW, CA and LAS VEGAS, NV--(Marketwired - March 22, 2016) - At this year's Adobe Summit -- The Digital Marketing Conference, Gigya, the Leader in Customer Identity Management, announced that it has been chosen by Adobe to facilitate customer authentication and identification for a revolutionary new over-the-top (OTT) streaming offering. Adobe Primetime OTT, enabled by Adobe Marketing Cloud, is designed to help media companies respond to rising consumer demand to watch TV on mobile, desktop and connected TV devices.

Adobe Primetime OTT will enable TV networks and pay-TV providers to grow their audiences with multi-channel campaigns and tailored on-site and in-app TV viewing experiences. To achieve these objectives, Adobe is collaborating with Gigya to provide an identity-driven approach for media companies to engage directly with their viewers across devices by surfacing personalized content recommendations and monetizing premium video experiences based on audience data. Audience impact and measurement will be facilitated by feeding aggregated data into Adobe Marketing Cloud.

The Adobe Primetime team selected Gigya for its industry-leading customer identity and access management (CIAM) functionality. In addition to managing customer authentication for Adobe Primetime OTT, Gigya also has direct integrations with other Adobe Marketing Cloud solutions including Adobe Campaign, Adobe Analytics and Adobe Audience Manager.
