What is Ad inventory management definition ?

Ad inventory management can be defined as a set of actions and analysis aimed at maximizing ad revenue from existing ad inventory.

Strictly speaking ad inventory management encompasses:
- ad inventory analysis
- ad inventory forecasting
- allocation of booked orders

These operations are performed by ad ops and ad management tools. It’s mainly a technical point of view.

There is also a larger vision which includes more commercial and strategic dimensions, ad inventory management may also include :
- sales channels policy (adexchange, in house, premium ad network , horizontal network and often a mix)
- ad offering (ad units and placements, targeting criteria)
- ad pricing

The last three are not always cited, but are equally important. They are managed by in house sales top management and may be also considered as advertising management.
