Adobe Experience Platform

The Adobe Experience Platform is well suited for companies that are maturing or have matured in their digital offerings and are looking for very sophisticated tools to elevate to the next level. It's also for well resourced teams, both financially and head count to take advantage of the deep functionality and integrations.

Braze

Braze is great if you fully utilize the options and properly integrate with your platforms. There is a reason why it's the top customer engagement (CEM) platform out there. If properly handled it can be a powerhouse but if only minimally used it can be overwhelming. More certifications and personalized training would be helpful to grow user adoption.

Cons

Adobe Experience Platform

  • You need to be well trained and resourced to use the product
  • Features and integration work but often times you need to pay Adobe consultants for help
  • Not transparent in their pricing per customer

Braze

  • If you do not have a solid understanding of your product instrumentation and Braze, it will be difficult to be effective with it initially.
  • You need to spend some time learning about the platform as some aspects are not self-explanatory so you need to rely on other documentation or guidelines they have (i.e. how to find your instrumentations - need to find it by adding quotations marks, etc).

Overall I really like the Adobe Experience Cloud after a couple years of figuring out various tools. They are extremely powerful. The time commitment to learn them is high since it's not a tool you can easily begin using without much training.

Adobe has support at all levels and for each product but beyond tool questions you'll often be told they can help but it requires some paid consulting hours. So you either hire Adobe consultants or find 3rd part consultants who know their products well.

Braze is an extremely robust tool with a short learning curve. Building out new lifecycle strategies and campaigns was extremely simple. While there are a lot of functionalities, no CRM/ESP service will ever have every feature that all of their competitors have. Braze does a great job with listening to their customers and adding new features onto the roadmap.

Alternatives Considered

Adobe Experience Platform

In most cases we have found Adobe products to be harder to use but offer a lot more capabilities. In some cases Adobe products are missing key, basic functions. Adobe does offer a more holistic toolset rather than buying pieces of the puzzle and having to integrate on your own but that results in paying for a higher price tag.

Braze

Usability - If you are experienced with ESPs, Braze is simple and straightforward to learn after an initial exploration into the tool.Tooling, Products, and Features - Braze is a robust tool that enables my team to build complex lifecycle marketing programs without needing support from product/engineering. We can easily target users with email, push notifications, in-app messages, webhooks, SMS, and more all in one place.
If there is ever a product that is missing/could be improved, the Braze team will listen to our needs and incorporate suggestions into their product roadmap.
-Customer Service: The Customer Success team is so responsive and helpful - some of the best I've ever worked with. They will provide suggestions, feedback, workarounds (if needed), and recommendations to improve your efficiency and strategy. I'd highly recommend a CSM as well. The only other tools that I've used that come close to my satisfaction with Braze are Oracle Eloqua and Listrak - however, neither of those options are a good fit for my current company where push, sms, and in-app messages are needed.

Return on Investment

Adobe Experience Platform

  • The platform has allowed us to mature into digital spaces we couldn't otherwise have experienced
  • Contract pricing went up yearly on some products by 200%
  • We were able to consolidate email tools to save on yearly contract expenses

Braze

  • Positive: A growth hacking experiment was proven successful in nudging users who abandoned their cart after checking out with a product/service and leaving their chart or 24 hours.
  • Positive: A growth hacking experiment was proven successful in nudging users whose credit card failed when trying to upgrade to a paid account.
  • Negative: With the plethora of teams (disciplines / business units / markets) with access to braze, it's easy to accidentally over-nurture users.
