Ensighten 1.0

Overall Satisfaction with Ensighten

At Autodesk.com we are using the Ensighten application to deploy Omniture, Google and Test and Target tags. No, we have not implemented Ensighten across the whole organization.
  • You can deploy basic tags much faster.
  • You can manage and control deployment on your own.
  • Easy tool to learn from GUI point of view but still need JavaScript skills.
  • I don't think Ensigten works well for AJAX web site.
  • If you don't have JavaScript skills, you will not be able to use Ensighten.
  • Deploying rules with Ensighten 1.0 application could be problematic because it deploys all the rules at once and not just individual rule you selected.
  • Positive impact: you can deploy or fix tags on a site much faster so it could improve employee efficiency.
  • Negative impact: I have noticed ensighten Bootstrap.js could cause some problems and in some cases could break site functionality not related to tagging.
  • I have also noticed Ensighten framework doesn't fully supporting older browsers. Not very consistent.
I did not select Ensighten, some one else did .....

I don't think Ensigten 1.0 version was really ready for advanced tagging ...

Using Ensighten

To be 100% honest it is very difficult and time consuming to find or move to a different solution once you deploy Ensighten. Plus, I don't see any better tag management solution out there yet, they are all more or less providing very similar functionality.
