Ever since Apple first announced the rollout of Intelligent Tracking Prevention (ITP), and subsequently ITP2.0, our industry has demonstrated a heightened level of concern about the limitations of third-party-cookie-based tracking methodologies. While the efficacy of third party cookies has been hindered in the past with such developments of cookie deletion and cookie blocking tools, ITP represented the first time a significant percentage of conversions might be lost overnight.

At our company, we like to publish articles and opinion pieces about the key issues facing the partner and affiliate industries. This piece, which ran in Forbes, explains why some marketers are actively exploring and implementing API-based integrations to replace pixel tracking. Here's an excerpt:
Today, the trade journal Martech Today published a byline from our CTO Pete Cheyne entitled, Is Pixel Tracking Dead? In the piece, Pete explains the rise of pixel-based tracking and then outlines some of the challenges that make it increasingly difficult to track using this technology. While companies like ours work very hard to deliver outstanding tracking through pixels, many in marketing are seeking alternatives that take control of data flow away from the browser publishers. Here's a brief except to whet your appetite.
Working in the martech industry, one question I hear a lot is ‘How do I increase the value of my data?’ There’s over 2.7 zetabytes of data available in the digital universe today and we’re hearing about ‘big data’ more than ever before. Marketers are now strongly focused on becoming data-driven, yet 87% of marketers still consider data their most under-utilised asset. So, how can you increase the value of your data when it’s often difficult to understand where to even start?
When it comes to partner marketing, ‘finance’ and ‘innovation’ are not typically two words you’d expect to see in the same sentence. Since the differentiation between financial services products like credit cards tends to be more subtle than between travel offerings like flights or retail merchandise like apparel, they seem to lend themselves more towards static CPA-style commission structures which are more difficult to customise. Additionally, a smaller number of highly-specialised partners dominate the industry, which can sometimes restrict innovation.
