CHICAGO, April 24, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- hybris, the world's fastest-growing commerce platform provider ranked "leader" by both principal analyst firms, today announced that Adobe® Analytics, a key component of Adobe Marketing Cloud, has been integrated with hybris Commerce Suite to enhance digital marketing including measurement, segmentation, targeting and optimization. The integration module, developed jointly by Adobe and hybris, gives organizations a unique combination of real-time analytics across online (including Web, mobile, social and video) and offline marketing channels. The solution enables a multi-dimensional view of customers that makes it possible for organizations to fine tune and better personalize every interaction. The integration module will be available in the hybris Extend marketplace.
Predictive analytics and data modelling enables businesses to deliver the right message to the right customer, through the right channel, at the right time. This integration leverages high-performance, real-time analytics to attribute sales, leads or other business growth indicators to specific marketing efforts. Businesses can determine the most appropriate marketing programs to drive business growth objectives and optimize decision-making for marketing resource allocation across channels.
"Through our integration with Adobe Marketing Cloud, businesses are able to map the entire customer journey for the first time, identifying the most influential moments across all touch points," explained Patrick Finn, Vice President of Channels, Americas, hybris. "Leveraging the strengths of our respective technologies, we are able to connect online and offline marketing analysis to give businesses truly data-driven decision making capabilities."
"Today's consumers leverage a variety of sources to access information about products and services and often switch channels within a single transaction, leaving fragmented waves of digital data in their wake," said Bill Ingram, Vice President of Adobe Social and Adobe Analytics, Adobe Systems. "Integrating our analytics solution with hybris' omni-channel commerce platform enhances our ability to bring all that data together to gain a complete picture of how consumers are interacting with our customers' brands."
