NPAW and Spideo showcase their integration at IBC

NPAW and Spideo announce their integration to boost targeted content promotion and optimized editorial decisions that build engaging video experiences. 


NPAW and Spideo’s technologies will help boost content discovery and recommendation as well as user monetization for OTTs, telcos, broadcasters and media companies in real time. Enriched content metadata combined with in-depth, descriptive and predictive user behavior analytics and precise segmentation capabilities will help reduce churn and increase engagement.


NPAW (Nice People At Work) —a global leader in big data and video business intelligence— and Spideo —leading personalization platform— join efforts to help online video services deliver targeted video experiences.

Spideo’s search and recommendation technologies will feed smart content and user metadata to NPAW’s predictive analytics solution, YOUBORA Suite. The integration will provide shared customers with deeper visibility of content performance and user consumption trends allowing to optimize editorial decisions and launch individual actions to promote content to poorly engaged users. Customers will be able to feed their CRM and YOUBORA integrations with third-party marketing solutions to action those data-driven decisions for engagement purposes, but also as a means to counter churn.

YOUBORA has the data to target potential churners, and Spideo has the semantic profile information about these churners that describes tastes and interests to help video services see the content users have interacted with and the preferences they have. This can be used to push new releases of interest.

Spideo will bring User Semantic Profile information into YOUBORA Suite’s database, aiming at combining it with advanced, behavioural and demographic data to create cohorts of users and take personalized, engaging actions. With this integration, shared customers will be able to identify males or females at risk of churn, an age range, a specific region, with a thematic preference for comedy movies, for example. It will allow them to launch a precisely targeted campaign to promote appealing titles to them in order to increase their interest and re-engage those users. Identifying users who are likely to abandon the video service and knowing their user sentiment will also help video services make optimized content acquisition decisions. In the future, the YOUBORA-SPIDEO integration will also help detect preferences of those identified as critical churners to explore causes of lower engagement, beyond video performance issues, and assess content catalogue relevancy and strategy.

Content performance analytics help to answer more high-level questions like: What type of content is most interacted with and compared to the entire catalog? What percentage does this represent? What is the “most watched” content versus “most recommended”? Are recommendations paying off or do we need to use business rules to improve the output and engagement by boosting certain content? By combining content performance insights with precisely segmented groups, content providers are able to target the individual users when it comes to taking action.

And whilst advanced content discovery and searchability, alongside content packaging, are key elements to create such hyper customized experiences, user behavior insights will also help build engaging UX and pricing plans for further engagement.  


“YOUBORA Analytics provides an outstanding variety of tools and indicators to monitor the Quality of Experience. We’ve been working closely with the NPAW teams to enhance the YOUBORA dashboards with the Spideo Personalization APIs and User Intelligence. YOUBORA dashboards combined with the Spideo User Semantic Profiles provide unparalleled capabilities for video operators to counter churn and optimize usage,” said Thibault D’Orso, COO at Spideo.

“Building an appealing content catalogue, as well as efficient and personalized content discovery strategies is one of the key pillars to ensure success for growing video services.” said Lucas Bernat, VP of Product at NPAW. “While some products may be able to point you in the right direction, this partnership with Spideo means more relevant content with a stronger surefire strategy behind it.”
