“FYI has worked tirelessly for more than 15 years to develop a superior database capable of fueling devices with carefully organized and flexible datasets that hundreds of clients and 100+ million U.S. viewers have come to trust and depend on daily. FYI was ready to expand its global capabilities, and with Ericsson’s worldwide presence and expertise in content discovery, it is without question the right move for both companies.”
