Overall Satisfaction with Adobe Test and Target

Adobe's Test & Target product is used widely throughout the marketing department. It is primarily used for its AB Testing functionality as well as its ability to interface with SiteCatalyst via a T&T plugin. The department uses the AB Tests to cross-sell and up-sell its products in several regions of the world. It provides great support and research in the metrics of several KPI's including pricing, visual appeal,engagement and conversion.
  • The product is extremely simple and easy to use. The interface is very intuitive and the learning curve is miniscule if one possesses the knowledge of the proper web technologies.
  • It is a robust piece of software with the ability to interface with other Adobe/Omniture products via plugins. In our organization, this cross-functionality saves a lot of time and resources. The terminology is also the same across all Adobe/Omniture products to make for an easy transition.
  • The tool also provides one with the ability to execute multiple tests simultaneously and to segment traffic to particular tests. The software is extremely scalable.
  • Adobe Test & Target is a premium product and with that it comes at a very premium price. Usually smaller businesses/individuals cannot afford to pay for such a tool because it ranges high in pricing per month. If the product is used optimally then it can pay for itself.
  • The product has definitely led to increased conversion, as eCommerce is the base of our organization.
  • The product also allows us to see what our users want in a product. It allows us to better market to specific regions of the world in specific ways as well as understand cultural boundaries.
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.
It is unlikely that the business will discontinue its use of Adobe Test & Target, as so many of the company's resources have gone into this product such as training individuals and developing a relationship with Adobe. Their technical support is great and the service they provide us is invaluable. It has become the backbone of the marketing department.
The software is exemplary in traffic segmentation and has the ability to set up custom metrics using its intuitive interface. The implementation of the product itself is very intuitive and uses simple terminology. It's easy to insert code snippets. Its ability to create custom javascript tests is a feature that blows other tools out of the water.
