Likelihood to Recommend

Adobe Analytics

Adobe Analytics is very well suited for medium to large e-commerce companies. If you are looking to get a better, more detailed view of your audience and how they interact with your brand across multiple channels, then Adobe Analytics is a great tool for that. Smaller companies with a limited reach may not find the return they are looking for with such a robust tool.

Quantcast Measure

If you are looking for a basic website analytics tool that provides some good, high level information about who is visiting your site and where traffic is coming from, Quantcast is a good tool. It's a bit less intimidating than a tool like Google Analytics as there are no custom dashboards.

Cons

Adobe Analytics

  • Because it is a web interface, sometimes it's just slow. This could be on the user's side, or on Adobe's side, but it does get annoying when reports or dashboards take a long time to load.
  • A lot of the things I use AA for I learned myself as it was pretty intuitive, but there are many other features that I didn't really understand what they were for or how to utilize them.

The capabilities of the tool are vast and it can actually replace several other more basic tools and create a central reporting site for all marketing teams. The fact is, we can teach people across the company to engage with the tool very quickly and the value can be seen without a great deal of expertise.

Usability

Adobe Analytics

Adobe Analytics 6.8
Based on 9 answers
I think there are some interface improvements that reduce Adobe SiteCatalyst's usability. For example, having two different variable types (eVars and sProps), can be confusing to end-users. Additionally, there are few "out-of-the-box" reports and dashboards that a novice end-user can take advantage of right away. The learning curve on Adobe SiteCatalyst is greater than other tools like Google Analytics.

Reliability and Availability

Adobe Analytics

Based on 5 answers
Adobe SiteCatalyst has a good up-time track record, but there are cases in which the interface reports a "Network Acceleration" issue, which can be frustrating. There are also times when data can be "latent" for customers, but most of these cases are due to spikes in traffic or temporary server issues.

For the most part, Adobe SiteCatalyst reports work ok, but there are cases in which reports take a long time to return. These cases are usually when too much data has been stored in Conversion Variables (eVars).

Support

Adobe Analytics

Adobe Analytics 5.7
Based on 9 answers
I have had many clients that are not thrilled with some aspects of the support. I think the actual day-to-day technical support (ClientCare) is great, but I have heard (and experienced) complaints about the the longer-term services (initial implementation, account management).

In-Person Training

Adobe Analytics

Adobe Analytics 3.6
Based on 3 answers
Myself and others have found the in-person training ok, but not outstanding. Trainers are good at explaining how to use the product features, but sometimes lack "real-world" experience on how to use the product as they are people who have often not previously been web analysts. There is also a shortcoming in company-provided training on advanced uses of the product. The implementation training is very good.

Online Training

Adobe Analytics

Based on 4 answers
The online training for Adobe SiteCatalyst consists of short product videos. These are ok, but only go so far. For a while Adobe charged a fee for this, but recently made these available for free. There are many great blog posts that help users learn how to apply the product as well.

Implementation

Adobe Analytics

Adobe Analytics 8.0
Based on 7 answers
The most difficult thing I experienced with SiteCatalysts implementation was the updating of tags on secure areas of the client's website that required another department to program and implement. If a development department is unfamiliar with how SC is implemented on other areas of the website, reporting will be affected as the two implementations won't communicate correctly.

Alternatives Considered

Adobe Analytics

Adobe Analytics is used in conjunction with Tealeaf and Splunk in my organization, with each having its specific use cases because of the different strengths and weaknesses. Adobe Analytics wasn't actually chosen by my organization, but rather it's what all the various lines of business use at my company so we want to all use a similar, consistent tool.

Quantcast Measure

Quantcast's advantage over other tools is that it is 1) free (as is Google Analytics), but that it is a more easy-to-use and basic tool than Google Analytics. Quantcast does not provide the depth of analytics of other tools like Google Analytics or SimilarWeb, but it provides a good starting point for someone looking to venture into web analytics.
