I think the customer service and relationship we have with Get Smart Content is great

Pros

  • Discover or Ad hoc analysis as it's now called is now bundled with AA. Your power users will be addicted to this tool and you'll probably stop using the AA UI seeing as Discover offers additional flexibility and speed.
  • Classification or SAINT (SiteCatalyst / Attribute / Importing (and) / Naming / Tool). This is a powerful tool for categorising your data - I'm not sure how we'd get by without this.
  • Dynamic Tag Manager (DTM) - we've started to migrate from Adobe's legacy tag management system (ATM) which is more of a techie product. We can see many operational improvements to be had with this tool and it has real power. I was told when this product was owned by Satellite it was sold for $200K and it's now free.
  • Data sources & transaction id - it's really powerful to be able to pull in data from other systems such as refunds and received revenue and link it back at a granular level in AA.
  • Report builder - your everyday users will frequently use this Excel plugin, it's extremely powerful and there's been significant improvement with the last few versions.
  • Segment sharing across applications; Adobe Analytics ->Target/CQ5. With the unification of the visitor id across Adobe products which has been called 'The Master Marketing Profile', it's now possible to build a segment in Discover and make available in CQ5 for personalising your website content, or sharing with Target for creating a targeted A/B test.
  • Processing rules - now 100 available, this allows for you to make many changes to tracking without having to involve Technology. However with Adobe Dynamic Tag Manager you may find yourself become less of a processing rule addict!

  • The customer support is great. Our reps are quick to respond and always follow-up in a timely manner. This is great for us as we use this tool as the primary source of content for our websites, so if something goes down, we need immediate assistance.
  • The capabilities within Get Smart Content are great. We use Eloqua internally and externally, so the Eloqua connector is something we have leveraged. It's especially great for our internal use case as we target relevant information to certain functions or regions within the company.

Cons

  • Implementation is difficult - Both initial implementation as well as adding additional features. Adobe jobs implementation out to 3rd parties and I'm sure that a large part of the experience has to do with how well that 3rd party is at their job. Maybe this could be better controlled and made easier for clients by taking implementation back under the Adobe umbrella
  • Support is overseas and sometimes slow to respond - I've had issues with support really understanding my questions, often issues have to be escalated. Oftentimes it takes the full 24 hours to respond, not sure if this is because of time differences or what, but most other companies using overseas support agents seem to respond in a more timely fashion. Also, it is rare to have an issue resolved on first contact.
  • Context for the reports/metrics - It is easy to look at data but interpret it wrong because you aren't really looking at the right metrics or the right data points.

  • There are some additions we would like to see, such as a better experience in the Performance section. It'd be great if we could see an overall view of the metrics instead of having to drill down. We do a monthly KPI report which takes me a while to create due to the back and forth nature of comparing metrics within Get Smart Content. I also have to use Google Analytics to help with this.
  • We had some issues with the tool not updating Eloqua contacts, but that has since been resolved. The process for discovering the cause of the problem was lengthy and frustrating.
  • It would be great if you could see metrics of an A/B test within the campaign/rule, instead of having to go to the Performance section and find it. A small snapshot of info would be very helpful and it would allow us to compare and update the rule without leaving that page.

We've already done the hard work of implementing. We will certainly renew to continue to be able to see insights into our business and ways that we can improve our website

Usability

Adobe Analytics6.8
Based on 9 answers
The tool can be costly and very difficult to implement with internal resources. A third party vendor is usually required to help with the implementation and integration to other tools. Collecting and passing data from a CMS to Adobe Analytics can be difficult. Without a strategy in place prior to tool implementation, costs could increase due to the need for re-implementation

Customer service has always been the Achilles heel for this product. Support is often slow to respond, if at all. Account management has seemed to get better recently.

In-Person Training

Adobe Analytics3.6
Based on 3 answers
It was a one-day training several years ago that cost the organization several thousand dollars. There were only about 10 people in the training class. Adobe tried to cram so much information into that one-day class that none of our users felt like they really learned anything helpful from the experience. Follow-up training is too expensive

Videos of the different tools plus the knowledge base articles, but you do have to take the initiative to do them yourself. There are also a few great books on the subject. *Nod to Adam Greco's SiteCatalyst Handbook

Implementation

Adobe Analytics8.0
Based on 7 answers
The success of implementations depend primarily on the solution design, and also on the ability to work with developers to get the solution implemented correctly. This is not an aspect of the product per se.

Alternatives Considered

Adobe Analytics and Google Analytics are most often compared. Google Analytics has become a favorite for ease and cost. But Adobe Analytics still is the most advanced for robust enterprise implementation. I recommend GA for smaller clients and Adobe Analytics when it is the legacy system or a much larger organization that has the internal resources to manage the software.

Get Smart Content is what we primarily use to serve up segmented content. The only other method or tool we've used to do so while leveraging our Demandbase variables is Optimizely. We selected Get Smart Content because they make the process of segmentation using Demandbase variables easy
