"Adobe Analyticsc review"

What do you like best?

As a small business owner (I am a full-time freelance photographer) whose leads are mostly generated by being found online, I wanted to be able to analyze my web data, since web presence is very important to the growth of my business. I first used Google Analytics and then moved on to Adobe Analytics after several recommendations. It has been a great help in monitoring traffic, but it does come at a cost since Adobe Analytics is not free.

What do you dislike?

It is difficult to set up reporting with Adobe Analytics and a decent amount of effort has to be applied to cleaning up reports.

There is a huge learning curve to understanding through Adobe Analytics.

Likelihood to Recommend

Adobe Analytics is great for large organizations. It makes sifting through tons of metrics and visualizing a combination of various metrics effortless. It, however, takes a considerable amount of time to develop the familiarity one must have with the tool to make the most of it. In a large organization, an individual, or even several individuals may have the bandwidth to learn the tool, but in a small organization, this may not be the case. A small organization may benefit from a more simple and limited tool.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Our parent company used it for all the newspapers. It enables our Editorial department to understand what stories are popular and where the traffic is coming from. It also provides us with data about our traffic trend and the behavior of the audience.

Pros and Cons

Report Builder -- it enables you to build custom reports for distribution.

Dashboards -- it enables you to build custom dashboards for our editors.

It allows prebuilt custom reports by site levels.

What Digital Analytics solution do you use?

Thanks for letting us know!

"Set strategies for your social media"

What do you like best?

Adobe Analytics is a very effective software, as it’s able to work with large databases with complex segmentation and generate quick results, that can automatically be printed, downloaded or exported to Excel. Another thing is that Adobe Analytics is so easy to use, even for newer users, it doesn’t take too much time to understand and master.

What do you dislike?

I think the software sometimes doesn’t consider the difference on the strategies between one social media or another when it comes to analysis, and this is very important because there is not such thing as an “universal strategy”, but Adobe Analytics does not consider this fact. Another point is the price of this software, that can be expensive for companies with small budgets.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Adobe Analytics is a great software for medium or large companies, with enough size to take advantages of all the tools this useful software has to offer. Although Adobe Analytics is an expensive software, it worth considering what this powerful tool has to offer.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Our marketing department has implemented a lot of Adobe software to their everyday work, and Adobe Analytics isn’t the exception. Our team of analysts uses this software to evaluate, manage and report the costumer behaviors to implement strategies for getting into the market.

"An ideal tool for data acquisition"

What do you like best?

Adobe Analytics is an ideal tool, to gather all the information referring to clicks, visits and other demographic characteristics, of the different campaigns and announcements that we created in North Woods Advertising, in this way we can provide more detailed reports to our clients, giving a real and detailed information about the events and the scope of each of their advertising campaigns.

What do you dislike?

the cost can be a little high to implement the whole platform of the Adobe product family in a small company, and most of these tools, separately, do not provide detailed information on all the data needed in an advertising campaign, you must acquire additional tools from the same company, to obtain everything you want.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

The report that we provide to our clients at the end of each job they request, are delivered in a more detailed manner, with the information that each one of them requires, with other similar tools, it is not possible to provide information on the scope of the announcements, here you really know what kind of people arrived.

"There's a learning curve, but it's POWERFUL once you're up to speed. "

What do you like best?

Adobe Analytics provides insight into what our users are experiencing on the web pages that I'm responsible for. I love that I'm able to dive into data on how users are arriving at our pages, what they're doing on the pages once they get there, and what's working so I can provide the best possible experience.

What do you dislike?

Like I said in my title, there is definitely a learning curve with Adobe Analytics. Though you don't need a Ph.D. in order to use the software, it takes some time to get used to the basics and specific intent to get better and better at actually using the software.

Recommendations to others considering the product

I prefer Adobe Analytics over Google Analytics.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We're able to now better understand what's happening on the web pages that we manage. We have insight into areas that we wouldn't otherwise have.

"A positive experience to enter the world of data analysis."

What do you like best?

The interface and the distribution of the workspace was easy to understand despite not being an expert in the field, the introduction to the software is acceptable, the results and reports of the data analysis are appreciably positive, easy to understand and with a efficient graphic aspect for the understanding of someone who does not have the technical knowledge and that without a doubt helps to improve the decision making in the workspace based on the information sought.

What do you dislike?

The technical assistance and learning should improve much more, the introduction, user guide and tutorial videos are useful but I feel dissatisfied since I had to go in search of technical help in other websites and forums to complement the knowledge and learn to use the tool correctly and take advantage of the available options without losing time in errors.

Recommendations to others considering the product

The world of design will begin to need the use and analysis of data, surely very soon in their workspaces they will need software for this task and very possibly they can implement Adobe Analytics to begin to know the potentialities of this software.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

In the area of ​​projects and design it is very important to analyze the data thrown by customers and users, in our department the use of data and graphics to explain the concepts of each project and making decisions is a very important task almost indispensable for establish professional criteria based on results and not ideas, this software has allowed us to begin to understand these data and expose them in understandable graphics to be analyzed.

"Lot's of options but lacking individual customization options "

What do you like best?

I use Ad Hoc regularly pull automated data as well as look deeper into points of interest. It's easy to set up workbooks reflecting a specific date range that can easily be updated to generate new data. I also like the ability to cut data in various granularities and build segments to capture specific users. An underrated feature is the simple trended chart at the top of the workbook in ad hoc. It's nice to have a high-level visual that updates as you change your data.

What do you dislike?

I do not like that there are not options for me to customize my experience in Ad Hoc. For example, there are approximately 250 report suites that I have access to, however, I use 10-20 ib a regular basis. I'd like the option to "favorite" these so that I don't waste time scrolling through the list looking for the one that I need. It is frustrating, especially when you factor in how long it takes for a new report suite to load. I also dont' like that I can't hide segments without deleting them. Whether it's segments for completely different projects or ones that have been shared with me, I would like more options to be able to organize my segments.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Train your employees on what you want them to use this for. There are many tools within Adobe Analytics and specifying which they will be using and providing adequate training will lead to good results. I also recommend that someone who is skilled in the tool create a training deck that includes an overview of the tool in addition to tips and tricks. There are a lot of features and it can be overwhelming if you don't focus on what you are using it for.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

I use Adobe Analytics to better understand the consumer journey on the web. Adobe has helped me to uncover the pain points that the consumer has while on the site which I've then provided recommendations for revamping the experience. Adobe offers the opportunity to look at the experience by device type, language and marketing channel (among many others) which help to ensure my recommendations are specific and consistent.

"Workspace In Adobe Analytics"

What do you like best?

The flexibility of the workspace environment allows us to analyze so many different angles of our web traffic. I like the drag and drop capabilities, while it may seem overwhelming in the beginning it is very user friendly.

What do you dislike?

Unable to switch out segmented segments. Meaning if you need to change out a segment that has other segments applied you must start over. Time consuming issue I've encountered.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Considering usage of the product. If you are a single person or 5 person department it's likely you won't have the man power to set the tool up properly and analyze the data as needed. Our department consisted of 12 people and we were able to implement and analyze. It's a pricy tool based off of visitation usage. But also, most importantly the most expensive piece of the license is paying to retain data year over year.

Our company is on the larger side and would like to be able to access and analyze trends. Exact price is unknown but it's likely we would have opted for five years of data, although we are retaining only 3 years of data.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Analyzing funnel conversion rates and using AB testing to find the best offers and creative to drive orders. Audience flexibility, able to analyze results based on demographics, devices, audience attributes and more.

"Favorite website analytics tool"

What do you like best?

Adobe Analytics has a robustness that is unparalleled by any other web analytics tool. Adobe Ad Hoc (formerly Discover) is my favorite analytics tool I've used, despite the poor user experience. Discover allows you to dive into the nitty gritty of the user journey and develop complex segments that control for different types of visitors, page names, and page views. On top of that, having the Workspace tool allows for easy point and click reporting.

What do you dislike?

In order to run Adobe Ad Hoc (Discover), you have to be running Java 8 on your computer, which is an outdated version. Discover as a whole is very slow, but I also hear they are phasing out soon, even though Discover is my favorite tool within the system.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Obviously Adobe Analytics is very pricey, but it is so much more robust than Google Analytics. For larger companies, Adobe is the only way to go. You can hone in on user journeys so much more easily and clearly than in Google Analytics, and you can create much more complex segments that allow you to siphon out groups and experiences.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We are using Adobe Analytics to track user journeys through our website. We are looking at data from users all around the globe, so also have the site written in a variety of languages as well. We look heavily at traffic to different experiences on the site, and like to be able to segment out by new and returning visitors. We look at the user's journey from entry page to conversion or exit, and the robust segmentation allows for specific, streamlined funnel comparison.

Great UI, graphs, charts

Powerful data analytics capabilities.

Fast performance speeds even when running against a heavy historical data load.

What do you dislike?

Ability to control who can create/view reports and dashboards

More nuanced and advanced training needed for beginners

Implementation can be lengthy and expensive. We had to work with our client for 6 months+ just to get the system going, the process was elongated specially because of the lack of customizable interface available in the Adobe Analytics platform

Recommendations to others considering the product

More expensive solution compared to other named digital analytics software out there such as Google Analytics, but it really gives you value for your money with it's power and customizability, it's probably the best in comparison to other analytics software.

Can report metrics of different types although some training is needed to make the best and greatest use of its capabilities

Performance can be laggy sometimes specially when you are operating multiple huge datasets.

Adobe has a lot of amazing tutorials to get you started but a lot more can be done in this area

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

E-commerce data analysis - where customers are spending most of their time, abandon rates etc.

"Great user interface and all in one analytics solution for all of your digital platforms"

What do you like best?

Can combine various digital platforms in just one view. I use this tool to generate reports and analysis on all of our domains. Very appealing visuals and switching between trended view and ranked view. very flexible data filters. I was really surprised by the speed with which it pulls historical data. With this tool you have almost any slice of digital data on your finger tips (hugely depends on your IT's implementation).

What do you dislike?

No proper governance on all the dashboards, users creates dozens of dashboards and leave it on the server with 100s of versions. Overall implementation is cumbersome and time consuming. Need proper tagging on all of your platforms as well as all hits and instances.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Make sure you have solid tagging implementation, Adobe's DTM tool is a robust solution which can manage all tags at one place.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We generate sales reports and use this platform for source traffic reporting search terms optimizations, campaign AB testing. we analyze overall site performance for various IT implementation on user enhancements.

"Adobe Analytics - my thoughts"

What do you like best?

I can operate my analytics assessment on multiple layers through Adobe Analytics. For instance, when I'm trying to evaluate a certain webpage, I can aggregated statistics on an almost endless number of variables while still being able to dive deep and isolate individual pieces of content that may or may not be helping the webpage's overall statisitcs

What do you dislike?

I wish there was a way that you could more intuitively add webpages to view. It took awhile and a lot of help to figure out how to correctly get statistics on the right webpage (e.g. Cisco Connected Rail). Plus, when I updated one of the webpages with a different URL, even though it had the old one, I had to manually tell the platform to connect the two.

Recommendations to others considering the product

This is a great platform to get involved with, regardless of your level of analytics and statistics. The click map and heat map options are two resources that should definitely be taken advantage of because they are easy and intuitive to learn while providing great, helpful feedback

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Understanding which business opportunities to pursue, how I can validate the efficacy of a specific webpage or piece of content, and how those webpages and different pieces of content compare with each other

"From social listening to segmentation..."

What do you like best?

The ability to segment, classify data coming from different sources for making decisions that are not driven by just your marketing intuition but concrete insights.

What do you dislike?

The one thing that bothers me the most is the speed of the platform. At times when you are working with live (real time) data or big data sets the platform seems to lag a bit. This is kind of expected but then something that bothers you if it happens frequently.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Be ready for some lags. There is a ton of things that are possible so be prepared to spend some time understanding them. Adobe has a lot of amazing tutorials to get you started so use them and explore those amazing things that this platform is meant to deliver.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Solving major marketing challenges which deal with understanding the consumer data, analyzing hidden trends in them and using it to drive marketing and promotional decisions.

"Monitor your website in real time"

What do you like best?

Adobe Analytics provides great automation tools, perfect for releasing media content on website when scheduled. The interface is so friendly and intuitive that, even for newer users, it won’t take too much time to learn and the analytics, shows in real time, are great to follow up your campaigns.

What do you dislike?

I have had a couple of issues with the platform and the customer support was unable to solve it quickly. They always take too much time to answer and the usually provide just basic help. Another thing is that Adobe Analytics takes too many resources from your workstation. This disadvantage is general for all the Adobe Cloud products.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Adobe Analytics is a platform suited for companies in need for deep analytic tool on their digital platforms, as this software will offer a whole set of useful tools specifically for this. The resources it takes from your PC and the price for the software makes it only available for mid-size companies or higher, able to cost the whole package and take the most advantage of it.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

My sector on the marketing team is always using Adobe Analytics, specifically for monitoring the website of the company. It provides a general view of the number of users that access to the website, the time they spend in there and their demographics.

""Most loved site examination device""

What do you like best?

Adobe Analytics has a vigor that is unparalleled by some other web investigation instrument. Adobe Ad Hoc (once in the past Discover) is my most loved examination device I've utilized, regardless of the poor client experience. Find enables you to plunge into the bare essential of the client venture and create complex portions that control for various sorts of guests, page names, and site hits. In addition, having the Workspace instrument takes into consideration simple point and snap revealing.

What do you dislike?

So as to run Adobe Ad Hoc (Discover), you must run Java 8 on your PC, which is an obsolete form. Find in general is extremely moderate, however I additionally hear they are eliminating soon, despite the fact that Discover is my most loved device inside the framework.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Clearly Adobe Analytics is expensive, however it is a lot more powerful than Google Analytics. For bigger organizations, Adobe is the best way to go. You can focus on client travels a lot more effectively and obviously than in Google Analytics, and you can make significantly more intricate sections that enable you to guide out gatherings and encounters.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We are utilizing Adobe Analytics to follow client travels through our site. We are taking a gander at information from clients all around the world, so additionally have the site written in an assortment of dialects also. We take a gander at traffic to various encounters on the site, and like to have the capacity to section out by new and returning guests. We take a gander at the client's voyage from passage page to change or exit, and the strong division considers explicit, streamlined channel correlation.

"Opens unlimited metrics, but user beware"

What do you like best?

Adobe Analytics provides a vast array of metrics to track. The ability to slice by audience or by activity helps refine the enormous amount of data into byte sized pieces.

What do you dislike?

There is a steep learning curve to the platform. Unless the user has experience in it or has extensive training, it can become cumbersome.

Recommendations to others considering the product

The one element that i appreciate from SFDC is a community for learning. I feel that Adobe could learn from this and implement a message board system.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

I am currently looking at website traffic as it pertains to unique visitors. I was able to segment specific pages to get a better understanding of trends over time.

"Data, data and more data"

What do you like best?

Adobe Analytics has a nice interface and presents the data in an easy to understand way. In addition, the possibility of downloading any type of graphic in different formats makes the task of reporting much simpler. The filter tabs are another high point of the tool, with the possibility to filter between many metrics, create segments and quickly access the sections that we use the most.

What do you dislike?

The information of Adobe Analytics is not always easy to process, in general it is necessary a prior knowledge to be able to understand and use the diverse metrics that it offers, unlike other analytical tools in which it is easier to understand at first hand what is treat each value.

Recommendations to others considering the product

It is a very powerful tool to report metrics of different types although it is necessary to train beforehand to be able to get all the juice and use it in its greatest potential

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Two of my clients specifically use this tool to report metrics on their sites. They ask us for very specific data for which we have received prior training in order to understand them more easily.

"Powerful Web Analytics Platform, But Steep Learning Curve for Some Features"

What do you like best?

Adobe Analytics is a very powerful web analytics platform that lets you view the standard web analytics KPIs such as sessions, page views,, bounce rates, exits, etc. It also lets you create a nearly limitless variety of custom events, custom segments, and highly customizable charts/dashboards.

What do you dislike?

Adobe Analytics is difficult to implement (especially for those without direct experience). There is also a steep learning curve for many features. For example, the sheer number of options when creating a custom report can be daunting for beginners. However, once a user passes that initial learning period, the software does start to make more sense and become intuitive.

Recommendations to others considering the product

It's a much more expensive solution than Google Analytics, but if you really need power and customizability, it's probably the best analytics software on the market.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We are trying to analyze the web traffic of our clients to see where their marketing dollars can best be spent. Adobe Analytics does an excellent job of helping with this goal - as long as tagging is set up correctly, it's very easy to see where web traffic is coming from (SEO vs. paid search vs. social, etc.), and how users from each of these sources interacts with the website and how often they convert.

"Robust and ever growing solution"

What do you like best?

There’s an analytics dashboard platform called Analysis Workspace, and it makes report building for dashboards very easy and intuitive. It doesn’t take long to teach a new user how to utilize this this tool. I also like their new innovations and webinars that they provide. Lastly, their client care services can be quite helpful!

What do you dislike?

Some of the interface is still from the old version of the system, omniture, so the UI isn’t as seamless and simple as I’d wish. Also, there’s a lot that we have to configure to get the most out of the system. Ideally, I’d like to minimize developer dependence and do as much as I can as a marketer. Switching over to DTM, their tag management system, has helped with that immensely.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Our campaign managers and business units are heavy users of the data we provide via AA. We’re able to show holistically how certain campaigns or products are performing. There’s a lot of different tools for different types of reporting too. If we need to go far back in time and fetch a lot of data, the data warehouse tool helps us do that.

With this instrument you have practically any cut of advanced information on your fingertips (gigantically relies upon your IT's execution).

What do you dislike?

No legitimate administration on every one of the dashboards, clients makes many dashboards and abandon it on the server with 100s of renditions. By and large usage is bulky and tedious. Need legitimate labeling on the majority of your stages just as all hits and cases.We create deals reports and utilize this stage for source traffic announcing seek terms advancements, crusade AB testing. we break down by and large site execution for different IT usage on client improvements.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Ensure you have strong labeling execution, Adobe's DTM instrument is a hearty arrangement which can deal with all labels at one place.This is an extraordinary stage to engage with, paying little mind to your dimension of examination and insights.

"The best web analytics tool"

What do you like best?

What I like the most is the large amount of reports that it throws, although it can often be overwhelming, so it is necessary to make a good software configuration. The segmentation is quite good, they can be combined in an unlimited way. You can access the data directly, without processing. The real-time data are quite accurate, they also have a large number of custom conversion and traffic variables that allow more accurate tracking.

What do you dislike?

The price of the license is quite high and the initial configuration is quite complex. Specialized personnel are required to adjust it every so often.

Recommendations to others considering the product

The learning curve is uphill, the configuration isn't easy to do either, it's necessary to have specialized help. It's a very complete software in web analytics.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

It's the web analytics tool that we use in the company where I work, it has helped us to make decisions according to the reports it offers us. It's a bit complex software at the beginning but with some study you can take advantage of its potential.

The kind of customization it offers in the form of conversion variables, success events, traffic variables and classifications.

Also, Analysis workspace not only offers appealing dashboards, but also offers is in creating segments from the dashboards.

The performance of the tool is slightly slow. Also, the account keeps logging off often.

"Great Enterprise Analytics"

What do you like best?

The customization of the tool and the powerful data analysis tools to dig in as deep as I need. The segmentation, breakdown, and AI built into the tool is amazing.

What do you dislike?

To get value out of the reports, you really have to know how to implement correctly. Google Analytics has default reports that make so much sense and are very useful, but Adobe does not. Adobe also does not have a good attribution or multi-channel reporting solution. Yes, they have A solution, just not a GOOD solution. It is also very expensive and they don't have a good solution for the little guys.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Max out Google Analytics first. Do not go to Adobe Analytics until you are a constant user of Google Analytics and have no more you can do with it to get the data you need. Once you are at that point, that's when Adobe Analytics will make sense.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

"User Friendly Site Analytics"

What do you like best?

I have used other site analytics software and for a company with many different branded sites, Adobe Analytics is the only software that has made it easy for a novice like myself to actually pull the data I need. Easy to filter to the information I want, dates, I want to see, and visualizations included directly in the tool.

What do you dislike?

Because there are so many options, it can be difficult to decipher which metrics to use when pulling data. For instance, if I want to know where traffic to a specific page came from, there are 3 options to choose from. I could use a better way to search for the definition so I understand what data I'm looking at.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

I'm purely using Adobe Analytics to pull site metrics. Through Adobe, we're now able to look at true activity on sites and make updates/create tests based on this data.

"Deep Insights and Business Intelligence with a Learning Curve "

What do you like best?

The ability to granularly dissect your online traffic and make appropriate business changes to maximize conversion and performance. With appropriate planning and a little background in your development department, it is fairly easy to set up different s.props, evars and events.

What do you dislike?

There is definitely a bit of a learning curve, and if you require support directly from Adobe, it is pretty expensive. There are also independent contractors who can assist in setup, but they are also expensive. That may make this an unobtainable product for some smaller to medium size businesses. There is a free tool the Omniture Digital Pulse Debugger, that can help you customize your Omniture settings when setting up or trouble shooting.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Omniture has been very helpful for us in determining page significance and usability. We have been able to correlate specific events to conversion and drop off to help us maximize out user performance on both our website and mobile apps.

"Great Tool for Web Analytics"

What do you like best?

We used to use Tealium, but then switched to Adobe Analytics and found it be way better in its versatility, ease-of-use, and its overall tracking capabilities.

What do you dislike?

As with any web analytics tool, there is a significant learning curve. We also had some issues with synchronization, but we were able to overcome that with their great support.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Absolutely go for it! Adobe offers better pricing points when combined with other tools, and since Adobe already has so many great tools for different business needs, it's absolutely worth checking out!

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We used web analytics to determine where our customers were going on the website, what they searched, clicked on, filtered, sorted, etc. We used it to track every movement, click, and button press from customers on our website; that way, we could better construct our website to their needs in a much easier fashion.

"Adobe Analytics "

What do you like best?

Adobe Analytics is very powerful for data analysis. The segmentation is advanced and provides a lot of customer data, I like that it gives me the opportunity to cross different metrics. The reports can be customized and are available immediately. Statistical patterns allow to discover trends and opportunities. API integrations are excellent

What do you dislike?

The user interface is a bit difficult to understand at the beginning. It takes a bit of technical knowledge to customize and integrate with other applications. It has many functions so you have to analyze what is relevant and what is not according to the needs of each company.

Recommendations to others considering the product

The learning curve is a bit slow so you have to study the software very well and analyze what elements are useful according to the company you are working with

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

I work as a freelancer in digital marketing and community manager, so I use this software to help my clients understand the behavior of their own clients to improve the content they offer on social networks and on their websites and choosing the best way to attract more customers and keep them happy

There are many similar options such as google analytics that produce the same outcome without the extra costs.

"Dynamic Platform for many Industries"

What do you like best?

The evar, prop, event and custom link tracking abilities allows me to design very intricate and dynamic methods of tracking almost any question that come up from a client. Ever since ive been working with the tool with other platforms the possibilities have become endless

What do you dislike?

Dashboarding capabilities are severely limited unless you have multiple stake holders using workspace. I wish the native dashboarding and visualization tool was as dynamic as workspace with an export and scheduling option that didn't require users to have a license to review. I'm already paying a significant amount for the tool. We don't need a "Tableau" licensing model for workspace.

"Multilingual, customizable, efficient documentation, reliable, continuous development."

What do you like best?

Adobe analytics is an extremely reliable service. It provides custom variables to allow extensive customization. It provides efficient documentation which can easily be downloaded, imported and printed. It is available in multiple languages.

What do you dislike?

Its support is sometimes very slow in sending responses. Its implementation is also quite difficult and overwhelming for beginners. The user interface isn’t very intuitive either.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Anyone using an analytics software for the first time might be overwhelmed by its complexity and may want to consider some other software with better, simpler and easier features. Its support is also not very helpful which can create difficulty. However someone who has experience of using analytics software may want to consider using it.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Adobe analytics is a feature of adobe marketing cloud. It is highly efficient, customizable and provides continuous development opportunities. To use all services users require valid subscriptions.

"Flexible Tool Yielding Powerful Insights"

What do you like best?

I value the flexibility and power of this tool. The fact that the possibilities for data capture with this solution are basically endless, meaning that in the right hands it can enable customer fingerprinting/LTV/customer acquisition cost reporting and analysis, custom revenue attribution logic, and various other advanced analytics concepts, making for extremely powerful insights applicable to all areas of our business.

What do you dislike?

The fact that it is at first non-intuitive for new users; the fact that I cannot fix/modify historical data; the fact that I cannot interact with it in the way I would a relational database (for understandable reasons; I know this is intentional); and finally, obtaining support in some instances can be very difficult: for example, getting someone at Adobe to provide a basic understanding of VISTA rules we paid to have put in place years ago was a time-consuming challenge.

Recommendations to others considering the product

You'll need a consultant, or someone who has done this before to assist with a successful implementation. There's also a book we found very helpful called "The Adobe Site Catalyst Handbook"

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We've used it to implement a complex tracking taxonomy for our external paid marketing campaigns. Utilizing it in this way, we've begun to realize benefits in the form of sophisticated insights allowing us to optimize paid marketing channel spend on campaign, ad-group and keyword levels.

"Esta app proporciona muchos datos útiles"

What do you like best?

Adobe Analytics tiene una interfaz agradable y presenta los datos de una manera fácil de entender. Además, la posibilidad de descargar cualquier tipo de gráfico en diferentes formatos hace que la tarea de informar sea mucho más simple. Las pestañas de filtro son otro punto importante de la herramienta, con la posibilidad de filtrar entre muchas métricas, crear segmentos y acceder rápidamente a las secciones que más utilizamos.

What do you dislike?

La información de Adobe Analytics no siempre es fácil de procesar, en general es necesario un conocimiento previo para poder comprender y usar las diversas métricas que ofrece, a diferencia de otras herramientas analíticas en las que es más fácil entender de primera mano qué es cada valor.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Es una herramienta muy poderosa para reportar métricas de diferentes tipos, aunque es necesario entrenar de antemano para poder obtener todo el jugo y usarlo en su mayor potencial.

También,prepárate para algunos retrasos. Hay un montón de cosas que son posibles, así que prepárate para pasar un tiempo comprendiéndolos. Adobe tiene muchos tutoriales increíbles para comenzar, así que úsalos y explora las cosas increíbles que esta plataforma debe ofrecer.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Estamos tratando de analizar el tráfico web de nuestros clientes para ver dónde se pueden gastar mejor sus dólares de marketing. Adobe Analytics hace un excelente trabajo al ayudar con este objetivo: siempre que el etiquetado esté configurado correctamente, es muy fácil ver de dónde proviene el tráfico web y cómo los usuarios de cada una de estas fuentes interactúan con el sitio web y con qué frecuencia lo convierten.

"A leader in third party analytics"

What do you like best?

Provides an interface that is easy to navigate and explain to general users

Provides a baseline-architecture with the ability to customize when needed

Ability to integrate with Adobe Target and other tools

SiteCatalyst can accommodate varying complexities of implementation strategies very well

Interface is intuitive.

What do you dislike?

Sometimes, the default number of variables is not enough

Dashboards in the tool aren't always unique to the user and persist across profiles (could use more customization for this)

I would love if Calculated Metrics could be shareable - similar to how folders of segments can be shared.

Support is sometimes slow to respond.

Recommendations to others considering the product

The key considerations are price (it is expensive), tech ability (can be complicated), and the extent of what you want to measure. For some smaller sites, a free tool such as GA might be a better option.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Using tools to turn vast streams of web data into insights that everyone can act on.

Data from any channel brings it all under one roof to deliver real-time insights based on true 360-degree stats.

"Favorite!!!"

What do you like best?

Adobe Analytics has a robustness that is unparalleled by any other web analytics tool. Adobe Ad Hoc (formerly Discover) is my favorite analytics tool I've used, despite the poor user experience. Discover allows you to dive into the nitty gritty of the user journey and develop complex segments that control for different types of visitors, page names, and page views. On top of that, having the Workspace tool allows for easy point and click reporting.

What do you dislike?

In order to run Adobe Ad Hoc (Discover), you have to be running Java 8 on your computer, which is an outdated version. Discover as a whole is very slow, but I also hear they are phasing out soon, even though Discover is my favorite tool within the system.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Obviously Adobe Analytics is very pricey, but it is so much more robust than Google Analytics. For larger companies, Adobe is the only way to go. You can hone in on user journeys so much more easily and clearly than in Google Analytics, and you can create much more complex segments that allow you to siphon out groups and experiences.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We are using Adobe Analytics to track user journeys through our website. We are looking at data from users all around the globe, so also have the site written in a variety of languages as well. We look heavily at traffic to different experiences on the site, and like to be able to segment out by new and returning visitors. We look at the user's journey from entry page to conversion or exit, and the robust segmentation allows for specific, streamlined funnel comparison.

"Robust Data Analytics for Any Business"

What do you like best?

I can spin out some highly detailed reports and analysis quickly and efficiently. There are so many different options here. Obviously, the biggest limitation is how it is installed and instrumented on the site, but I'm fortunate to be operating on an incredibly detailed data layer.

What do you dislike?

For all of its robust capabilities, it can actually be clunky from a technology standpoint. Some of the installations on our site can hurt load time and create SEO conflicts. I hate that they're no longer providing support for Adobe Analytics Ad Hoc Analysis. While Workspace is GREAT, Ad Hoc is where I find most of my value.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Muscle memory is a HUGE part of this product. It takes time to learn how to use it. I was previously ONLY using Google Analytics, so there was a learning curve to switching to Adobe Analytics. It's a massive, beautiful resource that takes data analysis to the next level, but it's also only as good as the administrators running it. Ours are incredibly detail-oriented and get how to instrument it well.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

"I will be using Adobe Analytics Analysis Workspace exclusively"

What do you like best?

I use Adobe Analytics to to pull a high-level report on the main KPIs of the site, and to compare more than one segment in a report. I find myself needing to compare multiple segments on a consistent basis. There was a recent situation where I wanted to take an extremely large list of campaigns and compare them by groups of about 10 or more based on a few characteristics or qualifiers. These “segment fallout reports” allow for some interesting reporting.

What do you dislike?

I’m a huge fan of Adobe’s calculated metrics, however, ever since they upgraded their calculated metric builder, I’ve noticed that very often you do not get a “total” number. Instead you will get an “n/a” value.

It takes a little bit to understand how it works, but once you do, it's great! Install and set up isn't the quickest or easiest. However, it's worth the stress of set up once you get it up and running.

Flag Analytics is difficult to implement. Right now there is also a large learning curve for many features.

In case you are doing e-marketing, then you might consider Adobe Analytics, as it's rolled into the whole Adobe Marketing Suite--where almost all of the other offerings are geared in the direction of ecommerce.

This reporting suite provides real-time data on traffic, conversions and enables us to evaluate the results of A/B tests by assigning unique variables to each test candidate. Data is exportable, and illustrated in a number of ways, and customer service is reasonable responsive.

What do you dislike?

Adobe Analytics is not easy to implement, and without developers with real expertise and experience in doing so, will not be a valuable source of data. For best results, larger companies might well want a dedicated resource dedicated solely to maximizing the effectiveness of the software.

Adobe Analytics is a great tool for analyzing your site and mobile app, but the learning curve is a little steep.

"Strong analytics platform, but with poor documentation and support"

What do you like best?

Omniture/Adobe Analytics is incredibly flexible. I can create custom variables for all our various report suites, and then build dashboards for internal (and in rare cases, external) stakeholders.

While the UI takes some getting used to, it is at least internally consistent--the submenus nested within OTHER submenus might not be how I'd design something, but the organization logic makes sense so that a new user can adjust and find new things on his/her own.

It's also relatively easy to pull data offline for analysis via export, and can be done over large time ranges as well as with thousands of rows (though in the latter case, you have to hack up the URL in order to get that much data at once; the UI itself doesn't support it.)

What do you dislike?

The documentation for Omniture is frequently stale, and the support is offshored and frequently doesn't understand its own product.

In one case, when trying to change page tags, documentation asked us to use a "tag manager" product in Adobe. Upon asking support about this, they tried to sell us a consultant to help with the implementation. Upon further digging, it was revealed *by support* that the product no longer existed, meaning they'd attempted to sell us consultant time for phantomware.

Most interactions with support are like this--they're well-intentioned, I'm sure, but don't undrestand the product or keep up with its updates.

Recommendations to others considering the product

If you're doing e-marketing, then you might consider Adobe Analytics, as it's rolled into the entire Adobe Marketing Suite--where most of the other offerings are geared toward ecommerce.

If you're just doing this for publishing or basic website measurement, though, you'll be paying for far more than you want/need.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

This is for digital publishing, so for the most part the questions boil down to "what content is most read, by whom, and why?"

This informs editorial decisions. We also have some level of tracking that looks at "where are people clicking, and why" which helps with site design in order to increase user retention.

In general, we are better able to position our content both off-site (think SEO, social media) and on-site (think recirculation modules) because of the data we get out of this platform.

"Adobe Analytics is a great web examination tool "

Adobe Analytics is an web examination tool that gives you a chance to see the standard web investigation like KPI's, for example, sessions, site hits, skip rates, exits, unique visitors. It additionally gives you a chance to make an sort by the event type and you can see this sorted information in a dashboard or related sheets.

What do you dislike?

Adobe Analytics is hard to actualize it and is hard to use for beginners. Sometimes it shows to much information for the end user and it's a bit slow.

Recommendations to others considering the product

It's a considerably more costly arrangement than Google Analytics, yet in the event that you truly require power and adaptability, it's likely the best investigation programming available.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

"Adobe Analytics is powerful analytics tool"

What do you like best?

Adobe Analytics was great at getting very granular into the data. It's also a very intuitive and easy to use tool. Whenever updates are made it notifies you before logging in so there are no surprises. It's great at channel performance and well as path level reporting. It clearly lays out to you your top pages and what which pages are performing. It provides good insight in where to spend your time updating a site and was also the first to point out red flags, like tracking issues.

What do you dislike?

For better or for worse, Adobe Analytics can sometimes be too granular. While I praise it for giving such in depth information there's no easy way to translate the data. It's also not the best at handling multi-users. My company used Adobe Analytics to power it's many hundreds of sites but every time I'd link to one I had to re-click through the latest updates. It was built into our platform so we never had to sign in directly to Adobe Analytics but somewhat frequently it would drop my credentials so I'd have to start the whole process of logging in over again.

Recommendations to others considering the product

I recommend people considering using Adobe Analytics complete a trail and any kind of training you can get your hands of. Adobe Analytics provides valuable data but if you're not sure how to interpret it you won't get far.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?
