Values for information_level
The information_level attribute is only returned by the IP address API and indicates whether the visitor's IP address belongs to a company. If information_level equals "Detailed" the full company profile is returned.
When Demandbase identifies a visitor's company, information_level is “Detailed.” This indicates the returned data set contains the full set of company information.
If the visitor's IP address indicates they're not coming from a company, Demandbase classifies the audience of the visitor. When information_level is "Basic," audience and registry information, including location information are returned. “Basic” denotes Audience classification is returned along with public registry information.
This only applies to the IP address API. The Domain API and the Company Autocomplete widget do not return information_level because they only return the detailed data set.
audience and audience_segment
Demandbase classifies web traffic into broad pre-defined segments using the Audience and Audience Segment attributes. The audience and audience_segment attributes are valuable and unique ways to analyze the composition of traffic for both identified and classified visitors.
Audience classification is a unique way for marketers to view their web traffic using broad segments of website visitors. This powerful new visibility enables marketers to establish metrics around specific segments of web traffic such as Enterprise or Wireless, while filtering out some of the "noise" coming from residential internet service providers, search engines and bots.
Values for audience
This is the complete list of actual values available. The audience attribute will provide one of the values in the Audience column for a given IP address.
|Type||Audience (actual values)||Definition|
|Enterprise Business||Revenue > $1B (for identified companies)|
|Mid-Market Business||$50M > Revenue < $1B (for identified companies)|
|SMB||Revenue < $50M (for both identified companies and classified IPs)|
|Vertical||Government||IP used by government institutions. See audience_segment for further breakdown.|
|Education||IP used by educational institutions. See audience_segment for further breakdown.|
|Hospitality||An ISP connection via a hotel.|
|Origination||Residential||The IP address is originating from a range containing identifiers and signatures consistent with a residential ISP.|
|Wireless||The IP address is originating from a range containing identifiers and signatures consistent with a wireless ISP.|
|Bot||The IP address is exhibiting repetitive, automated behavior and signatures unlikely to be associated with a human.|
|SOHO||The IP address is originating from a range attributed to a very small ISP.|
Limited identifiers available regarding the IP range. This rarely occurs.

The ISP isp attribute indicates if the visitor's IP address is from an Internet Service Provider. It can have one of 3 values; true, false, or null. True indicates that the visitor is accessing the web using an ISP. False indicates the visitor is not coming from an ISP. Nil, or no value, indicates if the IP address has not yet been classified as either. Marketers may take specific actions if the visitor is identified as an ISP (isp = true). Used in conjunction with the audience attribute, the ISP flag may be classified as primarily serving businesses, or residential, or wireless.
industry and sub_industry
Demandbase indicates a company's primary industry using Standard Industry Classification (SIC) codes. The primary_sic attribute has a three or four digit SIC code value. For a complete list of SIC codes, industry names and industry specialties, please visit http://www.osha.gov/pls/imis/sic_manual.html.
For identified companies, Demandbase returns the industry name and the industry specialty in the industry and sub_industry attributes respectively. The returned values for industry and sub_industry can be customized to suite various business definitions or to match the values in existing systems.
