Adobe Analytics

I think Adobe Analytics is well suited for small or large businesses with the brain power to understand how the platform works and then use it to its full extent. It is a powerful platform that can become costly. I would not recommend AA to people who are beginners or have a limited budget for analytics.

Well suited: The software is particularly well suited if you can draw a map of what would be your clients and their consumption patterns beforehand. If you have a business model which might change drastically with the introduction of a new product or service you may find the transition quite expensive to build in the software.

Pros

Adobe Analytics

  • Next Page Flow reports provide a quick and easy way to see what path customers are taking on the website.
  • The flexibility that creating segments gives the user for analysis purposes is great. A lot of insights can be generated when different segments are compared.
  • The web interface allows for users to quickly pick up on how to use Adobe Analytics, which is a huge advantage over just pointing people to where the raw data can be found since middle management and executives shouldn't be spending time coding and trying to get the data into a visually useful format.
Albert Ihm | TrustRadius Reviewer

Salesforce Audience Studio (formerly Salesforce DMP)

  • Captures all customer data efficiently
  • Helps with better understanding and what the customer exactly wants
  • Adapts to changes very quickly, helps us proving the best our customers need
  • The look infield is great, it helps to capture data with great precision and the best part is that it is very efficient in segmenting customers

Cons

Adobe Analytics

  • No proper governance on all the dashboards, users creates dozens of dashboards and leave it on the server with 100s of versions.
  • Overall implementation is cumbersome and time-consuming.
  • Need proper tagging on all of your platforms as well as all hits and instances.
Anonymous | TrustRadius Reviewer

Salesforce Audience Studio (formerly Salesforce DMP)

  • Takes several days to create advanced segments (3rd party data), populate them and actually synchronise them with other platforms (in my case, DSP). Makes it very difficult to act with swiftness when market trends demand it.
  • Krux media pixels aren't accepted in GDPR-heavy regions, making them absolutely redundant. Clearly, Salesforce hasn't done a proper outreach in all regions to make publishers white-list their tech.
  • Rather poor match rate with DV360.

We've found multiple uses for Adobe Analytics in our organization. Each department analyzes the data they need and creates actionables based off of that data. For E-Commerce, we're constantly using data to analyze user engagement, website performance and evaluate ROI.

It has amazing functionalities but the usability is still far from friendly. You have to really want to use the tool to learn how it works and we've had several cases of people who are not as comfortable with data and reporting who just gave up using it because they can't understand how to.

You are pretty much organizing your company's CRM all the time, your engineers deserve the best too, keep using the new tools Salesforce has to offer, to keep your engineers in fit and move along with the world. As an engineer I know when something is old enough to keep working with.

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.

I give the rating of a 4 just because it seems more like a process that is failing. Any time I have put a request in, they have taken days, sometimes weeks, to get back to me and even then, the issue may still persist. I believe this is the biggest weakness of the Adobe Analytics tool and has a lot of room for improvement.

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

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.

It is a large effort to implement. Throwing a developer with zero experience with Adobe Analytics with no support is a REALLY BAD IDEA!!! Having experienced developers working as a team is crucial to a strong implementation. I say this because I have experienced both scenarios. I was the only developer on an implementation project and I had no experience with Adobe Analytics. As a result I made many architecturally bad decisions which lead to a rigid fragile implementation that eventually was scraped. It took some hard lessons to learn that Adobe Analytics was not as simple as their sales reps make it sound. Using the Adobe Dynamic Tag Manager made sequential implementations incredibly STRONG. Having a DTM to manage the code was a miracle and a life saver!!! If you plan on doing a big enterprise level implementation, please seriously consider using the Adobe Dynamic Tag Manager!!! it made code maintenance super slick and easy which is super important for a developer!!!

Alternatives Considered

Adobe Analytics

Adobe Analytics runs a close 3 with Google Analytics and pales in comparison with Webtrends. I inherited management of Adobe, but if I had my choice I'd switch to Webtrends if not for their ease of SQL customization and their ability to easily create bitstream data without costly add-ons. When you work as an analyst, telling your boss that you need more money for software they've already purchased does not go over well. I could finagle it, but with so many key pieces relying on our web data, it's not worth it.
Nathan Collins | TrustRadius Reviewer

Salesforce Audience Studio (formerly Salesforce DMP)

Much more expensive and difficult to change from the initial setup. Needs to be used as a powerful tool and gather as much data as possible from the start as the cost-saving here should not be your driver to get that software in the first place. Others are cheaper and easier to change while in it.

Return on Investment

Adobe Analytics

  • Positive impact is that the analytics data provided by Adobe Analytics allowed my former company to have great awareness on the most current browser and touch device usage that people were using to access our sites.
  • Positive impact is that the analytics department was able to provide a great range of information on how to approach a marketing campaign or strategy by targeting certain demographics that appeared to be interested in certain parts or aspects of the site.
  • Positive impact was increased employee efficiency, since we had better access to how to support customers and users accessing the site.
Chris McCue | TrustRadius Reviewer

Salesforce Audience Studio (formerly Salesforce DMP)

  • I don't have specific figures to share, but with Krux we where able to do external acquisition. Since we have a limited budget, before having Krux we couldn't launch any campaigns as they where too expensive and the CPA was too high. The retargeting businesses were not optimizing the campaigns enough.
  • We are able to identify our clients that are the most at risk and call them to assist them in the use of our product. This will help to reduce our churn rate.
