The integration trail for Adobe Campaign continued this week as the San Jose, Calif-based software giant announced new capabilities for the technology it acquired a year and a half ago.
Today's announcements aren't bringing home entirely new concepts, but officials say they make things easier for digital marketers catering to retail prospects.
"We had the analytics integration in October, and this is the second step in a string of integrations we're working on," said Kerry Reilly, director of product marketing for Adobe Campaign, one of the company's six pillars in the Adobe Marketing Cloud. "This time we've got a good handful of integration pipes we're building between our solution that allow easy transformation of data and communication."
The new integrations include what Adobe officials call contextually relevant email, shoppable media experiences and other integrations across Adobe Marketing Cloud solutions.
With "contextually relevant emails," Adobe wants to provide marketers with the capabilities to capture the right email at the point when a prospect opens an email. It captures contextual data from Adobe Target and Adobe Campaign (e.g., purchase history, interests, time, location, demographic details, etc.). The content can also change while it’s in the inbox or updated later as other contextual data is gathered.
"It is connecting the dots between Campaign and Target rendering contextually relevant information," Reilly told CMSWire.
Other integration work includes capabilities out of Adobe Experience Manager, helping marketers by automating the process of personalization better so marketers don't have to spend time coding. It's a "drag and drop" world for many marketers, and Adobe's trying to cater to that here.
Adobe's new shoppable rich media experiences includes capabilities to transform "each media experience into a shopping experience and making it easier for marketers to let customers shop the look in a highly visual way," Adobe officials said.
