Adobe Experience Driven Commerce, Managed Services Basic Edition
Adobe Experience Driven Commerce, Managed Services Basic Edition will provide a suite of pre-built integrations between Adobe’s Marketing Cloud and Magento, which will reduce the launch time for AEM / Magento implementations.
The Power of Adobe Marketing Cloud
The combination of the Adobe Marketing Cloud’s customer experience tools with Magento’s commerce capability provides brands the ability to offer customers an elevated retail experience both online and offline. Providing relevant customer experiences based on a user’s history with a brand provides a direct uplift in sales. Additionally, the democratization of data across businesses closes the loop by providing the business with actionable operational data and a better understanding of user behavior.
Adobe’s Commerce Integration framework and Magento
Adobe’s Commerce Integration Framework (CIF) provides a set of components and APIs that provide commerce capability to AEM. The integration allows Magento to be the transactional system, while AEM manages the commerce experience.
The integration maintains a logical separation between systems for product marketing and fulfillment operations. Marketing teams can easily import products into AEM, where they have the marketing tools they need to create customer experiences. The ecommerce operations team can securely manage product availability, pricing and promotions in Magento, with the tools they are accustomed to.
By synchronizing Magento user profile data to the Adobe ContextHub, marketers are able to leverage the data layer across the Adobe Cloud. This includes the native AEM targeting engine and more broadly the entire Adobe eco system including Marketing Cloud, Analytics Cloud and Advertising Cloud.
The offering provides current Magento customers with all the marketing power and velocity of AEM and the Adobe Analytics. It is engineered extends into the rest of the Adobe Experience Cloud offerings for Marketing, Analytics and Advertising
