Adobe Audience Manager

If you feel as though your online presence isn't quite hitting where it should, Adobe Audience Manager (AAM) might provide the insights to help you identify the areas in which it is lacking (the gaps). As a result, you can adjust your approach and optimize your customer interactions. With that said, if you currently deploy software for the analysis of customer data, you should consider whether AAM will add value. I would suggest setting some strategic objectives so that you can ensure that AAM will meet your current and future needs.

Jahia

Jahia is well suited if at leats one of the situations occure : - Important UX requirements- Integration projects
- Multi-sites, multi-language
- Different sites development by different teams that should fit in one shared instance
- High availability, clustering
- High load, high performance
- Need for a headless CMS
- A/B testing and market automation
- Stable architecture with limited risks of incompatibilities between modules
- Excellent support from the editor in enterprise distribution
There is a free community distribution that can be used as entry level, but as soon as a project becomes critical I'd strongly recommend the enterprise distribution. While subscription costs of the enterprise distribution are relatively low compared to ones of other enterprise CMS, they could be more progressive and can be problematic for intermediate projects. This is mainly a problem for the first site at a client, as the subscription costs don't directly depend on the number of deployed sites.

Pros

  • We are able to generate reports that provide valuable insights into potential customer behavior, allowing us to better focus our marketing efforts.
  • By allowing us to understand who are key audiences are and how they overlap with other brands and products, AAM allows us to get a fuller picture of how we should target our audience.
  • Reporting in AAM is wonderful in that it is easy to understand and exportable. The use of graphics and updates make it easier to share insights with various team members--even those with minimum experience in marketing and analytics.

  • Custom made modules - The ability to custom build and customize your components is a great way to make sure you aren't like anyone else on the web.
  • Stable - Jahia is a very stable platform and since it runs on Java it has a great base for success.

Cons

  • Overall, AAM is a great software but it is also expensive. I would advise those considering it to give time to the trial first before fully committing.
  • Mobile analysis is not all that it's cracked up to be, with an inability to accurate track which mobile stats are unique. This might have changed since we used the mobile analytics.
  • While the insights are great for sharing, training users on how to use AAM can be challenging as it doesn't seem geared to the average user. Perhaps Adobe can provide more robust training tools or suggestions to make this transition smoother.

  • Some additional default modules would be nice. Things like social media integration would be a huge help and cut down on development time.

I would not use Jahia as it proved too complex for our needs and didn't help our over goal of customer satisfaction. Along with the man hours to build and execute, it wasn't worth the hassle

Alternatives Considered

From a main user standpoint, we selected AAM due to my experience with it and our ability to easily integrate it with our currently system. While we evaluated the other options, it was Adobe's customer service and reputation that ultimately served as an additional reason to deploy AAM instead of other options. I cannot for certain say that it is 100% more effective or useful than the other options, but it has served us well. As with all potential solutions, evaluating what works best in your current environment will inevitably lead you to the right choice.

Liferay is a good product with a broad community and a strong integration capability but a weak contribution interface and no website management easiness.Drupal is good for simple website needs, with a very large community and modules. But it's architecture is too unstable, from version to version, for long term selection and there is not much integration possibility for corporate IT requirements (banking for ex). Both lack in term of hot deployment and agility/industrialization. Adobe Experience Manager is a good product, but with much higher pricing; and so with lower ROI.

Return on Investment

  • We have seen a near 20% increase in revenue on targeted customers through employing our insights from AAM.
  • We have seen a better understanding by our sales team on how targeted marketing works in addition to the use of cold calling. This has made our sales team more productive and effective in generating and securing new business.
  • We have elevated our marketing discourse in the organization, where marketing was previously relevant but not always front of mind. This has allowed members of the overall team to better understand how we can leverage data and marketing to grow our business.

  • The full Enterprise package with Form Factory and Marketing Factory included provides the best user experience as the sites are more dynamic and adapt themselves to end users profiles. You are likely to get a much better targeting of the content this way, but of course it has a cost
  • Jahia is robust and reliable and is a good base to build up on digital transformation
