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.

It is well suited for marketing teams who want to be flexible, adaptable to changes in their business and create powerful, sophisticated campaigns to their clients. Teams that want to create automated drip campaigns with dynamic content and personalized cadence and messaging would find Eloqua very easy to use and perfect for their needs. It has powerful, in-depth reporting functionality and great CRM integration (note that I've had experience integrating only with Microsoft Dynamics CRM and Salesforce - both of these integrations worked very well) - so teams that use CRM will also find it complementary to their marketing technology stack.It will not be a good tool if a company doesn't use any CRM - as it is not a CRM replacement; or if all the marketing team is planning to do is "batch and blast" emails (which is a possible scenario for some very small businesses)

Pros

Adobe Experience Platform

  • Integrated products for a holistic multi-channel marketing platform
  • Customization at it's finest. Very granular in it's settings, permissions, and functionality
  • Sophisticated products that are very powerful

  • WYSZIWYG editor makes things easy for folks new to marketing as well as HTML/. I feel like I've been able to wrap my hands around this tool pretty quickly, and I have only been using the system for 10 months.
  • Forms are an incredibly powerful tool that can be used in a myriad of ways to help support your team goals. We use them to trigger SMS campaigns for feedback from our homeowners, and we also use them on landing pages to survey our contacts as well.
  • The improved program canvas and the ability to communicate between CDO records and contact records is great. We're able to store useful information on the CDO record without weighing down the contact record with information that isn't vital

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

  • It would be nice if there were more options for specific customizations in the template mode - for example, if you would like to have a photo to the left of text, there is a very specific spacing you're able to use, and you can't change the sizes of each piece more than 30 points in one direction or another. This means that if you have very specific designs you want to use for your emails, you may have to be a little flexible in the spacing and alignment. It's not a huge deal, but it limits some of the design options.
  • I have dealt with some issues with bounceback statuses for emails - if an email bounces back once, the Eloqua system registers it as a bad email and you have to go in and clear the person's email in the system before it will send them an email again. This can be a tedious process - there is a way to clear an entire segment's bounce back status, but I had to go on a journey through the help section to figure that out. Also, if people unsubscribe to your emails, you have to go into their accounts individually and resubscribe them, and there is no simple way to do that en masse so it takes a very long time if you have more than a few accounts to resubscribe.
  • The system goes down sometimes or is difficult to get into - the Eloqua network is sometimes slow to start and I may have to refresh the page for quite a while before it will load the email I'm working on, which can be frustrating. I think it is due to system overloads when there are a lot of users, but I'm not sure.
  • You cannot add attachments to Eloqua emails, which makes it a little difficult. You can host documents on Eloqua, which is very nice, but you have to link them in your email versus making an attachment.

We have been able to automate so many marketing processes with Eloqua over the past 5 years that the only direction would be to adopt the latest and greatest features Eloqua adds. The alternative would be to go back to the marketing stone-age and start over again. And we would rather move forward with increased automation and efficiency.

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.

Personally, I find it quite easy to use. But for those members of our team who have little or no testing experience, it's been a bit more difficult. There's also training required for development teams in order to have your campaigns coded and set up in the most efficient way. Our developers have been able to do basic and intermediate tests with no difficulty, and they find the interface itself quite intuitive... it's just the extremely complex tests that require a bit more understanding.

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.

Whenever we needed assistance help was easy to access. They understand the request the first time and provided easy to follow instructions to fix it or fixed the issue if it was not something we had control over. It's always best to provide screenshots so support knows exactly what is going on

I give it a 10 because the only issue we had was a result of not following the guidance we were given. Maxymiser provided a customized implementation guide for each site where we were adding the code. On our site implementations when we followed that guide to the letter, it was extremely fast and easy and has worked very well.

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.

It was an inherited platform vs. chosen. The incumbent chose Oracle as it was the best enterprise solution. The company, however, did not require an enterprise solution rendering the full Oracle stack pretty useless, unfortunately. The commercials are expensive yet it is attractive to have a 'blended' CPM style commercial model vs. other vendors that charge you on contacts

Eloqua does not really have a limit on scale and can support huge organizations with massive amounts of data. Our organization uses Eloqua to control all campaign/marketing efforts by injecting all touches with the customer into the tool. Using tools like Eloqua Profiler allows our Sales teams to view interactions that a customer or prospect has had with our website, emails, landing page and more.

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

  • For our organization it is currently too early to measure ROI, as we have just started using it less than six months ago. The program has helped us meet the objective of communicating with consumers and sharing information across multiple social media platforms seamlessly.
  • Ultimately the program should be able to to help us grow our relationships with consumers, and measure and track consumer activity on the web, which will help us develop web content and content marketing material that will be more appealing to all of our audiences.
  • Since we are a B to B to C company and not selling anything to consumers, it will be hard to measure ROI. That being said, the tool should definitely help us build more awareness among consumers.
