Server-side Target seems to be a recurring topic. I have written a few times about it. However, I have been guilty of keeping the posts very technical. Lately, I have received more questions about it and I want to clarify some important, non-technical aspects from this type of implementation.
The last tool I showed in my Summit lab was Adobe Analytics. Initially, I was not sure whether I should write about it. However, I have come up with some ideas to share and here you have the final post on this lab.
With the Adobe Target server-side code code already step up, as I explained in part 1, we are now ready to move to the Adobe Target interface and configure it. I will show how to do it with an Experience Targeting activity, but it should work as well with an A/B test.
The next step after you have a hybrid ECID implementation is to do the same with Target. I already wrote a post on how to create a pure Adobe Target server-side implementation. Now I will explain how to create a hybrid implementation. This post will show the code and the next one, the Target configuration.
Last Thursday (16/05/2019) I delivered my very first lab at an Adobe Summit. I would like to thank all of you who attended. It went really well and many participants managed to do the full exercise. I have received many requests to publish the content or explain more. There is so much to explain, that I will write multiple posts in the coming weeks, to cover all aspects. Use the comments if you need more clarifications.
When, a few months time ago, I started writing the series of blog posts on Server-side digital marketing, I did not initially know what to expect. If the number of comments per post is a valid survey method, then I can now say that this series has been the most popular in my blog so far. I have even received internal requests from colleagues about this topic after reading one of these posts.
This is the last post on the server-side everything series, at least for now. While I prepared the material for this post, I realised an interesting fact. Adobe Target does not require a lot of technical knowledge, when used on websites. However, server-side Adobe Target is the most complicated of all server-side implementations. Let’s see why.
lLet’s continue with the server-side implementation of the Adobe SaaS solutions. The next is the list is Audience Manager. This is probably one of the simplest implementation of all solutions. However, beware of server-side Audience Manager: it might not be what you are looking for.
