If you are already using multiple other pieces of the Adobe Experience Cloud stack, adobe audience manager is an easy choice. It allows for quick and easy data activation for your first and potentially brokered 2nd party data. However this product will likely be absorbed into the adobe experience platform (AEP) soon. In the end I would wait to see where adobe is truly headed with this product before investing heavily without additional heavy adobe investments.

It is best suited when you don't want to just spray and pray kind of a scenario, this helps in targeting just the right people for making a sale. You can search people based on industry, function, level of seniority, geography, designation, etc. Mostly there are no scenarios where it is not appropriate in particular, if you don't want buyer intent data then in that case it is expensive and you can look for other options.

The AdWords integration is not easy to do. UI is sometimes slow and doesn't load Analyticals for more than 24 hours.

Overall usability is great, as are most of Adobe's software. Maybe a UI refresh could make it a bit easier to do advanced functions or reporting but, overall, it works very well. This is something you take for granted with Adobe solutions because when you try another vendor you realize how bad it can be.

AAM has good support, but the support is not as available, due to waiting time and queue. The instructions presented are available, but it navigation is not easy between pages. However, instructions are usually direct and straightforward, but any underlying thoughts or questions won’t be easily answered without support from their service.

I personally like the Adobe Audience Manager interface and it's easier to use for beginners. It also has some features that Google does not, nor do its other competitors. It is worth the money and time spent, overall. I feel like it gives a bigger and more in-depth picture to our company's audience than other programs.

D&B Connect allows for a huge array of data values to choose from.
is limited in that it only assists in identifying duplicate data records and highlighting the most accurate record from among the duplicates based on customizable filters.
Read full review Return on Investment Overall a Positive Return for Business who go All in on the Adobe Stack Solid work for brokering and anonymously sharing data between first and second parties The death of TRUE 3rd party data has lessened the effectiveness of all DMPs Read full review ROI can be achieved anywhere between 6 to 12 months depending upon your business. The product is expensive but the data provided is good to an extent and a big sale can help achieve your ROI. The data accuracy sometimes can be bad leading to bad domain reputation.
