DeviceAtlas in 2017: the year in review
2017 has been a busy year for DeviceAtlas - new product, new patents, new website, and an award at MWC! We look back at another exciting year charting the ever-changing device landscape. From a product perspective we launched our DeviceAtlas for Apps product at MWC 2017. We've had continued progress on the technology front with an award for innovation at MWC and the granting of another seminal device detection patent, this time from the EU patent office building on last year's US patent, demonstrating our IP leadership in the area of device detection. This year web performance continued to be a big theme in the industry, and we saw a range of developments, both progressive (AMP, PWA) and regressive (the death of Windows Mobile and demise of Blackberry). Video has moved closer to the center of the mobile advertising stage.
Why DeviceAtlas is both Fast AND Accurate
Speed should never come at the cost of accuracy. Accuracy is the sine qua non of device intelligence—if you can’t be sure about the intelligence, what is the point? The DeviceAtlas team believe that the choice between speed and accuracy is a false choice, and an unnecessary one. Our patented algorithm allows for the extremely high speeds afforded by a PATRICIA Trie, but with the flexibility to accommodate the reality that you cannot have prior knowledge of all devices on the market.
