Carbon DMP announces new parent company 

Congratulations to 16-26 resident Carbon who, amidst the tough times, has a new parent company, Glam Holdings. 

The acquisition means the data management platform will be launching a new powerful AI & Data platform for publishers trading under the Carbon brand in July. 

The merge began in early 2020 with aligned visions to develop the relationship and offering to solve problems for publishers in a unique way. 

The combined entity will be processing almost 1 billion users every month, transacting over 2bn daily data points in real-time, all with 100% proprietary technology. 

These new tools will be able to unlock currently untapped revenue for publishers who are on Carbon’s powerful new platform and will use the talent of award-winning data-scientists based right here in Teesside.
