Centrally Manage Apps

Enterprises that struggled to manage websites years ago face a similar problem with mobile apps today.

In the past, there wasn’t software for managing all of your web content from a single platform and because of this departments, divisions and global offices went off and built their own decentralized websites that were expensive to maintain and often off brand without oversight and without a formal review and approval process. That story is true with apps today. With Adobe Experience Manger (AEM) Mobile, we offer a unified platform to create and manage new and extend existing apps.

Build and Extend Apps

Adobe Experience Manager Mobile allows brands to rapidly create apps for iOS, Android and Windows. Using intuitive tools and frameworks, marketers can quickly create beautiful screens and nuanced navigational structures. The results is rapid time to market and frequent secure over-the-air updates to beat today’s inefficient workflows by 50-70%.

Adobe Experience Manager Mobile also makes it possible to quickly extend existing native mobile apps with real-world functionality for the marketer via Apache Cordova. This means enterprises can have development resources quicky enable the marketer to update content, manage style, add and remove views, change layout and change navigation with existing applications, including the ability to access device sensors, access local storage, make secure remote services calls and, all the other mobile features that make apps integral to our lives. 

Leverage Content for Mobile

For what seems like forever, brands and enterprises have struggled to efficiently leverage their assets for multiple downstream digital channels. Adobe Experience Manager Mobile treats apps as a first class citizen in the multi-channel content experience, allowing marketing managers and creatives to populate apps with existing content through template-based authoring.   For companies who want to deliver content from other sources to their apps — whether from other CMS systems, product databases, ERP or CRM systems or any other content source — we offer flexible and open APIs.

Make, Measure and Optimize

Today, in order to integrate critical marketing services into mobile apps, you need to integrate with point solutions and maintain those solutions APIs and SDKs over time in your app. Contracting with multiple solution providers (analytics, targeting and notifications for example) only adds to the complexity, time and cost.

Adobe Experience Manager Mobile comes with critical marketing services from Adobe Marketing Cloud so you don’t have to worry about integration points and ongoing maintenance let alone contracts from multiple vendors. As an example, customers can get up and running with Adobe Analytics within minutes of logging into their accounts for the first time, and we will integrate more Marketing Cloud services in the coming months.

Adobe Experience Manager Mobile with the integration of Adobe Mobile Analytics offers powerful and actionable feedback empowering the marketer to make, measure and optimize with increased customer loyalty and customer conversions based on delivering up to the minute relevent content to the enterprise and your customers.
