New Adobe Analytics functionality includes:
Live stream - Marketers now have access to the full stream of
live event data feeding into Adobe Analytics, including real-time data
Social, and Adobe
Media Optimizer. Live stream will enable marketers to leverage
real-time dashboards displaying events as they unfold, in-session
remarketing to help when consumers appear stuck in a browsing session,
and instant traffic visualizations from a specific channel or referral
site. Adobe Analytics Premium customers can take advantage of live
stream immediately without any implementation changes.
analytics - Using new decisio trees in Adobe Analytics,
marketers can now predict the most likely decisions a customer
will make and influence whether they will buy a product or service,
watch a video, or take another desired action. Traits such as
geography, gender and purchase history are factored into predicting a
customer's digital journey. Using real-time data visualization,
marketers can then personalize live offers to reach their customers
with the right information at the right time. Decision trees will
enable marketers to create intelligent rules for website targeting and
email offers, and to assist call center agents to personalize customer
conversations as they are happening.
Unified segment builder - Marketers can now quickly discover,
create, preview and manage high-value audience segments through the
new, sophisticated segment builder. Audience (News - Alert) segments are easily
created by dragging and dropping key variables, such as gender,
region, average order value, and more. Once created, these audience
segments can be shared across solutions through Master Marketing
Profile, a core service of Adobe Marketing Cloud, and enable marketers
to tailor their campaigns across multiple workflows.
app analytics - Marketers can now tie successful mobile
app downloads to campaigns and attribute actions taken in the app to
measure the success of the campaign. This could include information on
how users get started using the app, user engagement while in the app,
how users share app content via social media, and product purchases,
providing deep insights into the lifetime value of app users. Mobile
app analytics enables marketers to move their customers from mobile
websites to high-loyalty app experiences and attribute app usage
activity to their campaigns.
Apple iBeacon support - Adobe is the first mobile
provider to measure and respond to user engagement in mobile apps
connected to iBeacons in sports stadiums, retail stores and other
external venues. Analytics for Apple iBeacon enables marketers to
deliver personalized content or offers to consumers on their mobile
devices while they are shopping, browsing a trade show floor, or
otherwise moving through the environment connected to iBeacons.

improve productivity, and offer out-of-the box integration with our
key partners to deliver more value from our existing investments.
