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.

SAP Hybris

Hybris fits well into a large development organization and will need many disciplines to fully leverage. It should fit very well into SAP heavy environments and recent roadmaps indicate a tighter and tighter integration in the future. It would be a challenge for a smaller shop to cultivate the kind of knowledge diversity necessary. Getting the initial momentum may also be a challenge if you do not have a good implementation partner, at least in the early stages.

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.

  • New technologies. One of the reasons that I like the platform is that it's in constant improvement. It feels like some of the competitors are bloated and slow to adopt new features in comparison.
  • Wide range of features. Many out of the box features for common commerce paradigms.
  • Scaleability. We have had no issues of scalability even at what we feel are high volumes of traffic.

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.

  • After the acquisition by SAP, It's becoming more challenging to get personalized support.
  • While the market has been getting better, it's still difficult to find qualified resources.
  • Dropping of support for Endeca and replacement with support for Solr hurt search features.

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.

I truly enjoy leading Hybris development projects and participating in new feature development for the platform. I see huge potential for growth and hope to be instrumental in bringing Hybris to the bleeding edge of presentation layer technology.

Figuring out the CMS tools took some time. Supporting documentation is sparse.I also found the tools to be slow at times, making simple template edits an arduous process.

I give this an 8 instead of a 10 because in hindsight, while I am extremely happy with the platform and the things I've learned through my exposure to it, I also see so many areas for improvement in the outcome of my efforts. My advice to front end developers working with Hybris and/or the Java stack for the first time, is to not be intimidated by it. Question everything. Trust your intuition. Do not be afraid to refactor or completely replace something that appears integral to the platform if you see a clear benefit to doing so. It's much less far reaching than you think and the core system will not come crumbling to its knees if you make broad sweeping alterations. In fact, the energy you will expend to retool your site with a new framework will grow in tandem with the amount of time you spend hesitating, and at some point may become critical enough to force your hand while simultaneously becoming risky enough to destabilize your entire project delivery. If you don't like JQuery UI, punt it. If you don't care for the Blueprint CSS framework, burn it down. Making the strategic decision to adopt the toolset that best fits your organization from the very beginning will pay off in spades.

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.

Hybris is a strong contender in the eCommerce platform race. It's closest competitor is probably ATG whereas Endeca, from the standpoint of our projects, is more of a supplementary tool to assist it. I and others have found hybris' strengths in that it's a light weight and very modular system which can rely on other tools where it's own abilities may fall short. ATG tries to do everything and be an all encompassing framework but in reality it is very hard to do all things at once and be great at all of them. Our philosophy was to use hybris' modularity and take what it does extremely well and leverage it along with supplementing tools such as Endeca to provide a solution that excels across the board. Being able to customize a solution to a business need is an important part delivering the right solution. The flexibility of hybris is the one thing that stood out to me and was most likely the reason for it's use in our project.

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.

  • With one solid Hybris implementation live, and another on it's heels in Q3, we've built significant in-house expertise in the platform. As we win more Hybris business, our ability to rapidly implement performant and unique e-commerce solutions for our clients can only improve.
