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.

Progress Sitefinity

Sitefinity is a great fit for medium to enterprise level websites that require a robust WCM solution that can integrate with other systems, be customized to meet business requirements and can scale as needed. Implementation will require a partner or individual that is well-versed in Sitefinity. If implemented correctly, managing content for non-technical and business users is very simple and straightforward.

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.

  • Makes it easy for an administrator to assign roles for others in the organization to contribute content.
  • Easy for administrators to know when new content has been created and is ready to be reviewed and approved.
  • Its licensing model makes it very affordable for small and medium sized business to adopt the platform.
  • They continue to update the platform with new features

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.

  • We have created a Chinese version of our site. I do not read or speak Chinese; however, I cannot create a role for one of our Chinese employees to be an administrator of the Chinese portion of our site. They must either be an Administrator for the entire site, or an editor for the entire. This creates additional effort / hassle for the team.
  • I have what I believe to be a simple question for the owners of Sitefinity. I wanted to see about using Sitefinity with AWS. Our web agency says that we cannot ask the owners a question, because they will only respond to an "issue". Because we cannot get an answer from Telerik, we are trying to figure this out on our own....and spending a lot of money along the way.
  • It is difficult to find one agency that understands both the front end design capabilities and the back-end technology capability of the platform.

It is very easy to administer for non-technical folks. The editor and backend interface is among the best I've seen.

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.

It's been six years since I evaluated all of the possible CMS platforms. I really liked Sitecore but it was substantially more expensive. I really like Joomla but felt it would be most successful if you have a web designer/developer on staff. I also looked at a lot of other small proprietary CMS systems, but felt like Sitefinity gave the best features for a low price.

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.

  • It has made the site much easier to maintain requiring less technically skilled professionals to manage content.
  • It has allowed us to customize messaging to in-state and out-of-state users allowing us to maintain key messaging to stakeholders without confusing external visitors.
  • The features of custom modules have been very helpful to build out new tools and site features.
