Gareth Davies, AdBrain, CEO, gives ExchangeWire his take on this week’s multimillion dollar purchase of Flurry, and how it’s the latest move in a Silicon Valley arms race, but also explains to his thoughts this can prove risky for brands’ own data.

This year the opening day of Mobile World Congress has seen a series of announcements indicating that programmatic advertising is proving an increasingly popular method for brands to reach consumers in the ‘mobile first’ markets of Asia and Latin America.
