I've found multiple scenarios where Adobe Analytics (AA) is well suited. For example, the integration of AA with Optimizely. Instead of limiting our A/B test evaluation with the pre-set Optimizely metrics, I can use a checkbox within Optimizely Options to set an eVar that will integrate almost seamlessly. Within a few hours, I can collect data such as Orders (Participation), Profit (Participation) and Time Spent on Page (examples), which provides a more in-depth analysis of how successful one variation is compared to another.

Pros

  • Provides an interface that is easy to navigate and explain to general users
  • Offers data extraction and automation through Data Warehouse
  • Provides a baseline-architecture with the ability to customize when needed
  • Ability to integrate with Adobe Target and other tools
  • The ability to segment and run breakdowns/correlations/subrelations provides access to a great deal with granularity in reporting

  • In particular, the ability to easily model data within the Sisense ElastiCube, re-build the data and see the changes reflected within our dashboards is great.
  • SiSense's ability to make short work of large data sets to answer questions is impressive.
  • Sisense allows you to easily pull data from multiple sources. If you have data, it can use it.
  • The filtering and formula capabilities within Sisense are strong.

Cons

  • Sometimes, the default number of variables is not enough
  • With AA v15, some of the organization within the dropdowns has become less clear
  • Dashboards in the tool aren't always unique to the user and persist across profiles (could use more customization for this)
Adam Waddington profile photo
  • Discrepancies between what you see in the designer and how it is displayed on the web. It does not look as polished when published. Fortunately I have been already shown a sneak peek into the upcoming v5 and they moved the designer completely to the web.
  • Documentation on how to accomplish some things is sometimes left to much to the interpretation of the user. I would like to see a more comprehensive guide in different areas such as their API designer and some of their SQL design pieces.
  • Some stability issues within the prism web environment. Not sure if this is something at fault on my end or theirs.

Although the tool is extensive, the price point and level of knowledge required to implement and use it will always lead me to examine other opportunities.

I absolutely love this product. However, they are moving to a new version that is almost a total redesign of the product. It remains to be seen how much work will be involved to transition

Usability

The user interface and business facing side is incredibly powerful and useful, the back end can be a pain point for many.

New V5 is ground floor of an exciting collection of possibilities. Weekly Sisense developers come up with new functionality that they share with us in their forums. The move to HTML5 has been pleasing in that widgets auto size themselves into appropriate forms in the board but everyone of them can be popped out to full page size to be looked at in more detail

Reliability and Availability

Based on 5 answers
Adobe SiteCatalyst has great actual uptime in the most standard sense, but long lag times in data during critical time periods (i.e. Holidays) I would consider to be an issue with availability.

There are very few situations when there is unexpected downtime. Mostly during development, new dashboard implementation and during upgrades. other then that there were very few crashes.

SiSense is usually performing better then other solutions even if going for complex reports/dashboards(of course within reasonable frames). I haven't noticed any bad influence on other systems, usually if something happens it stays within SiSense.

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.

This team is one of the few companies where I can literally Skype them for help and they respond immediately. Most don't realize how rare that actually is in the industry. Expanding their presence to the eastern time zone of the United States has made them more accessible as a result

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

Easy and free training that allowed us quickly understand basics in SiSense and start using them. More advanced features requires some browsing through SiSense forums, but there is always support to help, and SiSense support is one of the best whith which I worked so far.

Online Training

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.

Many examples, videos and scenarios which you try on your own right away. This combined with in-person training gives you enough to utilize most of SiSense's power.

Implementation

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.

We currently have 50 users using Sisense. These users are spread across all departments in the corporate office. It is also being used by general managers and franchise owners across 40 offices around the world.

Alternatives Considered

The best way to describe Adobe Analytics is that it's the enterprise-level of analytics platforms, in every sense of the word. From the sales process, through to the cost to purchase and implement, the need for ongoing training, and the fact that it really takes an Analytics team to maintain, this is the platform that is appropriate in contexts where resource constraints are not a consideration when selecting, onboarding, and maintaining a given platform.

We chose Sisense due to pricing structures as well as its speed and ability to connect to more robust data sources. Ultimately, the differences were minimal in regards to abilities and functionality; we just felt that Sisense provided the most reliable and consistent results among our test trials.

Return on Investment

  • We are not at a point where I can say that this tool has generated a positive ROI -- some of the value will be realized once we've built up the dataset that we are leveraging and use that to guide future decisions, so I'd like to reserve judgement on the question of ROI at this point.

  • Report development time is reduced from 2~3 days to 2~3 hours.
  • Report querying time is improved from 0.5~10 mins to 2~30 seconds.
  • A 2-staff team delivers 10 times the BI output that we did on the old system.
  • We were able to deliver BI and data analysis for all business functions instead of a very limited group of users
