Adobe Marketing Cloud

If you have a rather large budget and/or several clients to take advantage of the AMC, you would likely benefit from its all-in-one solutions. There are a myriad of excellent tools for digital marketing professionals to take advantage of within the suite, and creating a campaign becomes much more manageable for collaboration and execution through to reporting thanks to the suite's vertically integrated nature.

Drupal

Drupal is excellent in adapting to larger enterprise use case scenarios. Websites that need to be deployed with a multisite or multiuser setup will benefit from Drupal's common codebase delivery options. Building complex websites with involved workflows and custom backend administration tools and dashboards are ideal for Drupal. Drupal is more of a web application development framework than a blogging or brochure website builder. Of course you can build a powerful blog or brochure website, but unless you augment the functionality to include content management workflows and integrations with marketing automation, ERP, and CRM systems; you will not be getting the full benefit of Drupal.

Pros

  • End-to-end digital marketing suite gives you all the tools you need to create, strategize, execute and track a digital campaign.
  • The Experience Manager is great for managing campaign assets and group collaboration.
  • Targeting has been solid to reach audiences with content that is personalized to their interests.
  • Adobe Analytics has proven to be quite competitive in showcasing our ROI to clients.

  • Drupal allows for very detailed user access control. After installing modules, you can give specific access rights to specific user levels.
  • When new versions of Drupal come out, your website emails you. The installation only takes a couple clicks and sets up the new version securely. It makes you verify that you want the new version to override the older one, which is a great security feature. You can check to make sure everything is running correctly and verify.

Cons

  • Price - it's very expensive which leaves it out of reach for mid-level and smaller companies
  • clunky visuals - competitors like Oracle have a more aesthetically appealing interface, though less functionality
  • constantly changing, names of modules are changing as Adobe acquires new tech and phases it into existing cloud
No photo available
  • Admin user interfaces for installed modules are created by a wide-array of open-source developers. These can therefor be less cohesive than if they were all developed together.
  • The Drupal platform allows live editing and configuration, so in order to be performant several layers of caching are required. These exist within Drupal but take time/expertise to setup properly.

Although a powerful tool, Google Analytics has been catching up in capabilities and is much simpler to use.As analytics move to the spotlight, more sections in a company want to have access to it. However, creating straightforward reports/dashboards and sharing them with different groups is not a strength of Adobe Marketing Cloud.

We are going to continue to utilize Drupal for years to come. Drupal is continually being made to be more user friendly and continues to lead the open source community with support and an ever-growing user base. It seems that every time a major release is finalized the community has already started to work on the next. To me, this shows the commitment to creating the best platform on the market and not being satisfied with mediocrity

I have had few issues with keeping a Drupal system up and running. When there have been issues, they've been errors in how I went about implementing a change.

Drupal page loads can be slow, as a great many database calls may be required to generate a page. It is highly recommended to use caching systems, both built-in and external to lessen such database loads and improve performance. I haven't had any problems with behind-the-scenes integrations with external systems.

I was part of the team that conducted the training. Our training was fine, but we could have been better informed on Drupal before we started providing it. If we did not have answers to tough questions, we had more technical staff we could consult with. We did provide hands-on practice time for the learners, which I would always recommend. That is where the best learning occurred.

The on-line training was not as ideal as the face-to-face training. It was done remotely and only allowed for the trainers to present information to the learners and demonstrate the platform online. There was not a good way to allow for the learners to practice, ask questions and have them answered all in the same session.

Plan ahead as much you can. You really need to know how to build what you want with the modules available to you, or that you might need to code yourself, in order to make the best use of Drupal. I recommend you analyze the most technically difficult workflows and other aspects of your implementation, and try building some test versions of those first. Get feedback from stakeholders early and often, because you can easily find yourself in a situation where your implementation does 90% of what you want, but, due to something you didn't plan for, foresee, or know about, there's no feasible way to get past the last 10%

Alternatives Considered

Adobe's feature set is more robust and progressive. I don't want to invest significantly in technology, just to feel like I'm going to have to upgrade within a few years. I have more confidence that Adobe's products will scale over time than I do in IBM's products, with the exception of Watson.

I selected Drupal because of the simplicity upon going live. "Simple" is not the word I would use prior to the site going live though. I have used Jumla (which I believe was part of Drupal as one CMS about 12 or 15 years ago). Jumla is almost identical in capabilities to Drupal. It is developed differently, but capable of most other things that Drupal can do to my knowledge. I have used an extremely highly priced product (approx 500,000.00) of which I will not mention the name - as it was absolutely terrible in functionality and had limitations for editors. Lastly, I have frequently used WordPress as my CMS. WP has more theme options and the community of users is larger than the size of Drupal users. WordPress can be simple or complex depending on the theme, plugins, etc. These are some of the many comparisons.

Drupal is well known to be scalable, although it requires solid knowledge of MySQL best practices, caching mechanisms, and other server-level best practices. I have never personally dealt with an especially large site, so I can speak well to the issues associated with Drupal scaling.

Return on Investment

  • As an agency, we typically see the highest return with clients that are more sophisticated and that have the ability to invest in multiple components, as well as have the internal resources and processes to act on the data and insights.
  • I've also seen less sophisticated clients invest in one or two components without having a deep understanding of how to use them or the expertise to use them efficiently to have a significant business impact.

  • helped create a robust intranet across the organization
  • share success stories from various departments in form of intranet news feed so departments know what each other are doing
  • create HR document repository for people to access when needed
