Your Adobe Analytics Implementation Needs a Check Up

You’ve made an investment in Adobe Analytics for your organization. Are you able to trust your data and use that data to surface the insights that your organization needs? If not, you are ‘flying blind’ and you likely have an uneasy feeling in your stomach every time the phrase ‘Adobe Analytics data’ comes into discussion.

Data quality is a measure of more than accurate data; it is also about having the right data that drives actionable insights.

Top five indicators that it’s time for an Adobe Analytics Audit:

  1. Lost confidence in data – Multiple people in the organization talk about how they are unable to trust the data in Adobe Analytics to make decisions. Often times, analysts are misled by the wrong insights.
  2. Key resources have left – The previous owner of the tool has left the company or changed positions and there’s no power user in charge of it any longer.
  3. Set it and forget it – Your website and mobile app are constantly changing and so should your Adobe Analytics implementation. There’s no process in place to maintain the tool.
  4. Not aligned to your business objectives – Your business is not static and has changed since Adobe Analytics was implemented. You aren’t able to report on the data that matters to the business.
  5. Novice Implementation – A person new to the tool designed the strategy and the implementation. It takes solid strategy and experience with Adobe Analytics to build the right implementation that will provide the insights your business requires.

Indicators of poor data quality that are identified during an Adobe Analytics Audit include:

  • Unbelievable performance metrics. Does the data look too good to be true (or too bad)? Something is off, and we’ll figure out why that is.
  • Conversion and transactional data misaligned with actual business performance.
  • Misalignment in marketing channel performance between the Adobe Analytics Marketing Channel reports and other third-party systems.
  • Missing data. Data collection doesn’t just happen; it takes a strong framework to keep Adobe Analytics up to date.

These data quality issues lead to a mistrust in your data and of the Adobe Analytics platform itself. An audit will help you get your data quality back into a useful state.

Adobe Analytics Experts Audit and Resolve Your Issues

The Adobe Analytics Audit is a comprehensive investigation that will increase your understanding of what data is collected, why it is collected, and whether you can depend on that data.

During the audit, we will:

  • Deliver a clear project plan to set expectations and drive organizational alignment.
  • Hold discovery meetings with your stakeholders to understand your business, your challenges, and your opportunities.
  • Execute an audit of setup, implementation, and usage of Adobe Analytics. We’ll be inspecting common issues such as:
    • Out of date AppMeasurement or mobile SDK data collection code
    • Campaign tracking and marketing channel configuration issues that lead to an inaccurate depiction of performance
    • Technical implementation issues that will cause errors in the future; for example, not following best practices with a solid data layer design and setup in a tag management tool
    • Report data that is showing values such as “Unspecified”, “Other”, “Unknown”, or “None” when these values are not expected
    • Conversion Variable (eVar) settings that are leading to faulty data usage
  • Troubleshoot any complex issues leading to data quality issues you know of today or that are discovered during the audit.
  • Deliver a detailed and comprehensive report with clear and prioritized action items on how (and why) your Adobe Analytics setup and data collection will be fixed.
  • Begin implementing agreed upon improvements. We’ll work with your developers to make any platform-level changes (data layer, code structure on site/app). We’ll also work directly in Adobe Analytics and your tag management system (Adobe Launch, Adobe DTM, Tealium iQ, etc.) to execute other changes that our team can take care of on your behalf.
  • If you’re leveraging an automated data quality monitoring tool, such as ObservePoint, we’ll implement tracking of critical user flows so that you can be proactively alerted when there is an issue in the future.
  • Review all changes in your non-production environment and again in production so that you have confidence that data is collecting properly.

Upon completion of the Adobe Analytics Audit, you’ll receive recommendations — based on our extensive knowledge of your Adobe Analytics usage maturity — that will help you immediately improve your ability to glean insights and take action on your data.
