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 great for a company of any size. It can support incredibly large companies or small ones. It was incredibly easy to install and supports many different resource assets that have been instrumental in growing our existing brands as well as the new ones we continue to acquire. Drupal also has the ability to create many different user roles so that we never have to worry about someone having access to something they should not have. Though this is not something new to Drupal, we have recently integrated it with Google Analytics and are finally leveraging this integration to its full potential.

Pros

  • Integration with several tools of the Adobe Suite and the main marketing platforms
  • Amazing analytics platform. It enables both simple day-to-day analyses and more robust analyses, with customized models of assignment, anomaly identification features, and others.
  • Customizable. The Marketing Cloud is moldable according to your business needs.

  • The Drupal core ships with a granular, field level content construction toolset. The very popular views module is now part of the core Drupal CMS and enables the creation of complex content types, it's way more than a blogging tool.
  • Drupal is especially adept at integration with enterprise grade CRM and ERP systems. Because all of the data in Drupal is naturally available for mapping at the field level, there is a ready environment for connecting to restful API systems.
  • Drupal scales exceptionally well with multisite and multiuser environments. Large universities can standardize on a common codebase of Drupal and then roll it out to the entire campus. Individual colleges can customize their themes and content but do not need to worry about figuring out their own module stack.

Cons

  • The analytics platform (old Omniture.) Not so friendly. There is a higher learning curve if we compare with other platforms in the segment.
  • Sometimes the integration with Adobe Media Optimization and Analytics has a big delay.

  • Drupal is complex, it will take time and expertise to shape it into the tool you need it to be for your use case. WordPress can be installed and is ready to go for blogging out-of-the-box, but Drupal will need more setup up front to build out the functionality needed.
  • Finding strong Drupal expertise can be challenging for companies. Although the developer community is over a million strong, there are still few companies that truly have an expert Drupal developer on staff.
  • Drupal can be overkill for small websites with just a few pages or limited functionality. Many new flat file responsive tools can do well to build a basic brochure site without the overhead of a CMS like Drupal.
  • Security is an ongoing struggle for all users of opensource CMS solutions. If you choose Drupal for your website, you will need a plan for security updates to ensure you are one step ahead of the hackers.

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.

The time and money invested into this platform were too great to discontinue it at this point. I'm sure it will be in use for a while. We have also spent time training many employees how to use it. All of these things add up to quite an investment in the product. Lastly, it basically fulfills what we need our intranet site to do.

It's a great CMS platform and there are a ton of plugins to add some serious functionality, but the security updates are too complex to implement and considering the complexity of the platform, security updates are a must. I don't want my site breached because they make it too difficult to keep it up to date.

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

We really have not evaluated any other products. I have used the Adobe products in the past and realized that the costs of purchasing the individual programs would have been too much for our organization. Using the cloud gives us tools we never thought we would be able top have access to.

Drupal cannot really compare to Joomla. Joomla is also a free CMS, is faster to set up, is faster to load for visitors, is easier to maintain, and the extensions are much more reliable - even the free ones.Drupal and WordPress are very different, as Drupal has the power to be much more complex than WordPress, and is organized better than WordPress, but WordPress plugins are more reliable.The only reason I used Drupal was to gain experience using it and because a client already had a site built using it. I don't recommend it, and would only work with it if I had to.

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

  • Provides a substantial savings in software costs.
  • Decreases time spent on projects.
  • Reduces the chance for inconsistency and errors.

  • I have had a very negative experience with Drupal. In fact, my client and I decided to switch the site to Joomla because we couldn't get the PDF module to work on the Drupal site. It was a big waste of time and it was unfortunate that I couldn't get the power of Drupal to work for my client because of a bad module that didn't have a good doppelganger. Because their site had been built in Drupal previously, we ended up painting ourselves into a corner, wasting months of time trying to contact developers and get things worked out.
  • Since Drupal is inefficient as far as integrating the admin with the frontend of the site in the same page, it makes the work go much slower that with other CMS.
  • As the module community for Drupal is so poor, the customer service I end up providing to my client looks poor. If I can't get an answer from a developer of a critical module, it makes me look bad to my client. Be very aware of this issue when investigating Drupal.
