Apache Cordova

Cordova is an excellent hybrid mobile app development platform that lets you build mobile apps targeted to multiple platforms. It is free to use, simple to set up, allows you access to device features through plugins and the app performance is comparable to native apps as well. Implementing very complex animations smoothly can be a bit of a challenge. But if you are doing utility apps which focus more on features and don't go crazy with animations, there is nothing that you can't achieve with a cordova based app.

If you need a single place where you can handle all the third party pixels, this is a well-suited platform. As well as if you want to keep the deployment independent from all other (and more complex) deployments driven by IT.If you need a pixel to be fired not just when the page loads, but based on user actions, you should use the events and that's pretty complex to handle.

Pros

  • Runs on the command line in Node
  • Extensive usability for most platforms
  • Quality support from Adobe

  • Creating new pixels is very easy, as well as organizing all of them, handling prioritization between different partners' pixels.
  • Defining the perimeters and constraints where the pixels need to be fired is a breeze.
  • Deploying the container and keeping track of all the modification is very well done.
  • The configuration of the deduplication rule is pretty flexible.

Cons

  • Needs to be fully compatible with mobile machines
  • Support for a wide variety of platforms
  • Needs better backwards compatibility

  • Reports. Tag Commander lacks in term of reports of what's happening. There is an additional module called Attribution Management System that gives you a lot of insights, but more basic reports to understand what has been fired will be useful.
  • Support. Tag Commander support is very low responsive. It took several days to have the first feedback and generally, it takes a lot of emails to get what you need.
  • Deduplication engine flexibility. The engine is there and it works pretty well, until you have a slightly different need. In that case you need to implement something custom in terms of implementation, reports, etc. A more flexible approach would be useful.

Alternatives Considered

PhoneGap is another viable option but lacks the amount of support Apache Cordova receives rendering it worthless.

Return on Investment

  • Very economic for ROI purposes
  • Scalable for code reusability down the road
  • Convertible, easily switch platforms if Apache Cordova doesn't suit your needs

  • It let us deploy new pixels/fixes to pixels independently from the IT deployment process.
  • It let us easily turn on/off and sort the pixel execution based on partners' priority, assuring better data tracking for more important partners.
  • It provides out of the box pixel implementation for tons of partners, but really often we need to rewrite the pixel from scratch as they're not up to date.
