Experience is Everything
In a world where digital has disrupted every industry, leading businesses understand that delivering exceptional customer experiences is critical to creating long-term relationships with customers. Great customer experiences differentiate market leaders from laggards, and they require deep intelligence and amazing design. In response to these challenges, Adobe recently introduced Adobe Experience Cloud, a comprehensive set of services designed to give businesses the capabilities to design and deliver stand-out customer experiences. Comprised of Adobe Marketing Cloud, Adobe Advertising Cloud and Adobe Analytics Cloud, Adobe Experience Cloud is built on the Adobe Cloud Platform, the underlying, cross-cloud architecture that unifies content and data.
At Adobe Summit EMEA Adobe will be demonstrating new tools and partner integrations available for the Adobe Cloud Platform, as well as several enhancements to Adobe Experience Cloud across content orchestration and data analytics. These include:
New content capabilities in Adobe Marketing Cloud
Adobe is introducing several innovations to streamline content workflows, including new integrations across Adobe Marketing Cloud and Creative Cloud, and new capabilities enabling marketers to better search and orchestrate content, including:
New capabilities to activate content designed in Creative Cloud via Adobe Experience Manager. With Adobe Experience Manager’s digital asset management system, content is automatically identified and synchronised based on metadata applied in Creative Cloud. This ensures marketers can streamline workflows to use only the latest and most impactful brand assets across their brand properties.
Integration of Adobe Dreamweaver with Adobe Campaign, allowing email designers to create emails in Adobe Dreamweaver that automatically sync with Adobe Campaign, as well as to send personalised, contextual emails faster than ever before.
General availability of Adobe Fluid Experiences, part of Adobe Experience Manager, a capability that helps marketers surface the right content precisely when a customer needs it, regardless of device. Fluid Experiences is powered by Adobe Sensei, Adobe’s AI and machine learning framework.

Data science advancements
Adobe also unveiled Virtual Analyst, powered by Adobe Sensei within Adobe Analytics Cloud, the customer intelligence engine that enables brands to move from insights to action in real time by uniquely integrating audience data across all Adobe clouds. The data expert that never leaves the office, Virtual Analyst continuously analyses data and uses machine learning to deliver personalised and valuable alerts and insights to determine significant changes in customer data.
Additionally, Adobe Analytics is introducing new content packs for Power BI with Microsoft, including Traffic Analysis to analyse and discover digital traffic trends, and Mobile App Analysis to deep-dive into mobile application user engagement and application performance.
Adobe Digital Insights (ADI) State of Digital Advertising Report
Following the unveil of Adobe Advertising Cloud in March, Adobe today also released the results of its ADI State of Digital Advertising report, which examines trends in digital advertising investment and consumption in Western Europe based on a survey of 1000+ consumers and 300 marketers across the region. Its findings include:
Website visits are increasing only marginally Europe, with marketers facing effectively higher advertising costs—with added focus on ad engagement and personalisation to maximise advertising ROI.
Investment in mobile continues to grow, with mobile ad impressions purchased increasing 20 percent year-on-year between 2015-2016. Yet consumers have considerably shorter attention spans for mobile content than on desktops: The opening seconds of a mobile video, for example, are increasingly critical to capture consumer attention on a mobile device.
While only one-third of European consumers believe advertisers have improved their ability to deliver compelling ads in the last two years, there is surprisingly high consumer appetite for ad personalisation: More than half of millennial consumers express preference for content that is tailored to their interests. Personalisation remains a huge opportunity for brands to grow loyalty.
Adobe Sneaks New Tech
At “Summit Sneaks,” Adobe will preview technology in areas including AI, VR and IoT. Sneaks offer the audience an unprecedented – and entertaining – look into the future, showing brands how they can reimagine their current customer experiences and business processes.
