Adobe Target

1. We changed ship dates on individual product pages depending on customer location so they would have an accurate timeline for their orders. This really helped lower our volume of customer service calls on tracking orders.2. We have stores as well as an online presence. With Target we were able to advertise sales on b-stock items from our warehouse to our local customers without letting those that live outside a certain radius see the promo.3. If your marketing team doesn't have a tech background this software has a steep learning curve. There is quite a bit of manual configuration required. The image carousel is one example that we struggled with.

Jahia

Jahia is well suited if at leats one of the situations occure : - Important UX requirements- Integration projects
- Multi-sites, multi-language
- Different sites development by different teams that should fit in one shared instance
- High availability, clustering
- High load, high performance
- Need for a headless CMS
- A/B testing and market automation
- Stable architecture with limited risks of incompatibilities between modules
- Excellent support from the editor in enterprise distribution
There is a free community distribution that can be used as entry level, but as soon as a project becomes critical I'd strongly recommend the enterprise distribution. While subscription costs of the enterprise distribution are relatively low compared to ones of other enterprise CMS, they could be more progressive and can be problematic for intermediate projects. This is mainly a problem for the first site at a client, as the subscription costs don't directly depend on the number of deployed sites.

Pros

  • Because the software is established there is lots of online help available and most of the bugs have been worked out
  • Adobe has a vast supply of resources if your pockets are deep enough.
  • The dashboard is easy to follow and is getting more user-friendly. You no longer have to be an HTML wizard to implement changes.

  • Balance between ease of contribution and a powerful integration platform.
  • Possibility to manage templates via the Studio (web based, drag&drop interface).
  • Agility and industrialization of deployments (from 7.0 version); ex: modularity and hot deployment with OSGi modules.
  • New marketing factory (and future eCommerce platform) to provide a full range product for Digital needs.

Cons

  • It relies on mbox and depending on how they are implemented, you may need to rely on your IT team to implement additional mboxes for certain tests.
  • To set up test offers, most of the time you will need to have knowledge of html and css. And depending on how the mboxes are implemented, you could be heavily relying on jQuery to manipulate the elements on your site for test offers.
  • There is no WYSIWYG interface for you to highlight elements on your site while creating offers, which could be useful for users with less front end development experience.

  • User interface not exactly informative at first glance
  • Lack of basic features such as multiple photo upload selection
  • It always reloads any page's updates to the top
  • Removes some pieces of html after "edit" refresh, like Bootstrap's icons
  • Edit's mode window size doesn't reflect actual size of a content column's width

The Adobe cloud has made renewal a no-brainer.

I would not use Jahia as it proved too complex for our needs and didn't help our over goal of customer satisfaction. Along with the man hours to build and execute, it wasn't worth the hassle

They have some idea of how to debug problems, but much of the time was spent on understanding hierarchical structure of the support team because escalation often slow

In-Person Training

Based on 3 answers
The instructor that came to train us was awesome and this training was very useful. I would recommend it for anyone who is going to be using this software. I only mark it lower because it is an added expense to an already expensive product, and a lot of the training covered the "Target" portion of the software (which again, we didn't use)

Online Training

Adobe Target6.1
Based on 3 answers
The training was very easy to understand, however it would have been more useful to my development team than me. It was also primarily over-the-phone, which is never as easy to follow as in-person. We ended up scheduling and paying for an in-person training session to supplement the online/phone training because it wasn't helpful enough.

Alternatives Considered

While my organization has been using Adobe Test & Target, I have had the chance to evaluate Optimizely, another tool that allows for multivariate testing with a smooth interface. The reason I like to stick with Adobe Test & Target is its ability to interface and interact with other Adobe products. If your company already provides the tools for other Adobe products, it just makes sense to use Adobe Test and & Target because the data can be transferred to any of the applications in the Omniture Suite

Jahia is flexible and customizable so it allows its users to develop different of pages. However, such work requires additional resources and expertise of third party professionals. Other products I used have been more self sufficient by providing a high range of tools, tutorials, forums and support. In Jahia it seems not to be very easy to move between this or that look or layout

  • It's secure
  • Helps to deliver a message or explains a product
  • It doesn't have direct impact on overall business objectives—it only supports those objectives
