Adobe acquired Omniture in 2009 and re-branded the platform as SiteCatalyst. It is now part of Adobe Marketing Cloud along with other products such as social marketing, test and targeting, and tag management. SiteCatalyst is one of the leading vendors in the web analytics category and is particularly strong in combining web analytics with other digital marketing capabilities like audience management and data management. Adobe Analytics also includes predictive marketing capabilities that help users find trends in customer behavior patterns leading up to conversion. According to the vendor, these insights can help predict which campaigns will be most successful.https://media.trustradius.com/product-logos/yp/X4/UO2UCI37TC30.PNGThe DL on Adobe Analytics from a publisher's perspectiveWe use Adobe Analytics for our editorial website, TakePart.com to measure and optimize traffic and conversions (page views, petition signatures, newsletter signups, social shares).,Their calculated metric builder allows you to incorporate segments, which is extremely powerful. The ability to set custom metrics for each report. Robust and automated report scheduling. Can include reportlets with different time periods into one dashboard (aka can set them at the reportlet level not dashboard level.),Tricky usability. You really have to spend time in it before you can use it effectively. Props vs. evars make sense to analysts and power users but are complicated to explain to everyday users. The fact that you can't use "Time on Site" and conversion metrics in the same report makes life difficult (for time on site you must use the prop version of the variable and for conversion metrics, you must use the evar). This is a huge problem for editorial websites where 'time on site' IS a conversion metric. This is a major advantage of GoogleAnalytics over Adobe Analytics for publishers and a constant pain point for me.,7,Has helped us ID what users are the most interested in on the site. Has helped us correctly categorize our marketing channels and optimize them.,Google Analytics, Kissmetrics, Woopra, Webtrends Analytics and Chartbeat,Google Analytics, Chartbeat, Buzzsumo,Segmentation tool post-redesign Adding metrics to a report Calculated metrics builder,Transparency of allocation attribution for prop vs evar reports is difficult. For example, our users will add a conversion metric like "share" to prop reports, not realizing that props give attribution to all stories the user touched in their visit, vs giving 100% credit to the story listed (as the evar does). I have basically hidden our prop reports in the menu structure to keep them from doing that. But then they'll add "time on site" to the Page Name (evar) report, which will also be wrong because you can't use time on site with evars, only props. No matter how many times I reiterate, it's counterintuitive, so they'll continue making that mistake.,Yes, but I don't use it,6Analyzing Analytics: Enterprise grade platform with low performance supportAdobe Analytics is used as our enterprise web analytics platform globally to measure all of our digital properties. It helps provide us with standard high level metrics and measurements but also allows us to customize the data collected to provide deep insights to measure key performance indicators (KPIs). Adobe Analytics has provided us with the ability to generate basic reports, standard dashboards, as well as customized automated reporting through MS Excel, both scheduled and adhoc .,Reliable servers providing excellent uptime. Extensive customization which includes a significant amount of custom variables, limited only by coding ability and imagination. Continuous development with new features and enhancements released often.,User interface is not intuitive. Personally I have no issues because I have used it for so long. All new users have a long learning curve to get up to speed and comfortable running reports to meet their needs. Support has become abysmal over the years. Omniture used to offer great support, fast and helpful. Adobe support has errored very quickly with extremely long response delays, unhelpful responses. To be fair, certain support cases are resolved quickly and efficiently. But the majority over the past 2 years have been a dreadful experience with many of those tickets still outstanding and unresolved. Improve consistency in user experience. Many tools that Adobe offers are seemingly built upon different platforms which result in a very disjointed user experience and inconsistent usability.,2,Allows us to quantify the performance of our digital properties to measure success We have the flexibility to implement customizations to gain deeper insights into new business challenges,Google Analytics,Google Analytics Premium,2,15,1,Global web properties measurement Automating reports and dashboards Flexibility to customize measurement,Used to measure Windows application usage Used to feed data to marketing automation platform,Predictive analytics,Yes,1,Yes,Always... but a long time ago.

Yes - 
  • The mobile app for android is not great. Slow, and limited access to information.
  • The mobile app for iOS is much better, faster and more data access.
  • I use the regular website to access information via mobile by pinching/zooming.
