Integrating with Adobe Analytics

Adobe Analytics is the industry-leading solution that provides digital marketers with one place to measure, analyze, and optimize integrated data from all online initiatives across multiple marketing channels. It provides marketers with actionable, real-time web analytics intelligence about digital strategies and marketing initiatives. Adobe SiteCatalyst helps marketers quickly identify the most profitable paths through a website, segment traffic to spot high-value web visitors, determine where visitors are navigating away from the site, and identify critical success metrics for online marketing campaigns.

You can use Adobe Analytics to analyze data from your sites.

Integrating with Adobe Analytics allows you to do the following:

  • Enable Analytics user tracking.
  • Map your run modes (for example author, publish) to different report suites.
  • Submit Cliient Context variables as conversion variables or traffic properties.
  • Use predefined variable mappings.
  • Configure complete site sections at once.
  • Track custom-defined events.

Integrating with Adobe Target

Adobe Target is used by marketers to design and execute online tests, create on-the-fly audience segments (based on behavior) and automate the targeting of content and online experiences.

Online consumers today have constantly evolving needs and expect relevant, even personalized content from the wide variety of sites and content sources they can choose from. To engage an online audience, it is critical that online marketers quickly identify which offers and content are relevant and compelling to their audiences. Armed with this knowledge, marketers need the capability to continually evolve their sites and to target the appropriate content to different audiences.

Integrating with Adobe Target explains how to integrate your site with Target.

You can also use the Opt-in wizard to easily perform the integration.
