Integrating Adobe Target and Adobe Analytics into Voice Assistants

With digital experiences on the rise, interactive Voice Assistants like Amazon Alexa, Google Home or Apple’s Siri are still gaining popularity. Companies now need to meet their customers expectations and allow them to interact with their brand however they like.

Tutorial: Real time Product Recommendations with Adobe Target

Adobe Target Premium can be used for sophisticated product or content recommendations. Building on the last post, we are going to build our very own recommendation engine based on user behavior in real time. I assume you’ve read that post, but feel free to go back and read it first! Starting with recommendations As we know from the last blog post, Adobe Target is well equipped to personalize content in real time. To do this, we sent information about the products and users to Target in mbox requests. Now we are going to use the same concept to give real product recommendations! To get started, we need to understand a few basic concepts. First, Target must know about your products. We can either give details with the mbox requests or upload them in different types of feeds.

Tutorial: Real time dynamic Personalization with Adobe Target

Adobe Target is part of the Adobe Experience Cloud. It can be used for A/B Testing and Personalization of Websites, Apps and Server Side Applications. This article describes how it can be used to create dynamic Experiences based on the user profile and mbox parameters. Personalization is not a feature, it’s obligatory Some years ago, the internet was not more than a collection of static pages. It was perceived as the worlds largest library, so websites were created the same way as a library: Books don’t change their content over time, or react to the reader.

Using Adobe Launch 🚀 for configuration management

Adobe Launch (, by Adobe) ist the tag manager that comes for free with the Adobe Experience Cloud. You can use it to manage and orchestrate all the marketing tags on your websites (not only from Adobe) and reduce integration efforts for the mobile Adobe SDKs to just copy-pasting from the launch interface. For a tutorial, look below on this post. Launch is the successor to the Adobe Dynamic Tag Manager (DTM) which was used in the past, formerly known as Satellite. In 2018 Adobe announced plans to retire DTM fully by 2021 (source: https://medium.com/launch-by-adobe/dtm-plans-for-a-sunset-3c6aab003a6f). So if you are still using DTM, you should start migrating to Launch, which is only a one-click-action under ideal circumstances. Launch can host scripts for pre-tailored use cases (called Extensions) or custom code. With rules, we define when and where things should happen. Last, Data Elements let us define variables that we can use […]
