Adobe and ServiceNow announce global availability of integration

Adobe and ServiceNow announced the availability of its partnership integration connecting data from Adobe Experience Platform and ServiceNow’s Customer Service Management workflow product to enable more seamless, connected customer experiences. Connecting Adobe Experience Platform, its Customer Experience Management (CXM) platform, and ServiceNow’s Customer Service Management product provides brands with a more complete view of the customer. Through this integration, Adobe and ServiceNow joint customers can:

  • Establish Context to Drive Brand Loyalty
    Enterprises are often challenged by navigating internal silos of data pertaining to interactions with their customers. This integration creates data workflows that removes those barriers and connects marketing and customer service organizations.
  • Gain Deeper Insights for Personalization
    Great experiences are built on the understanding of a customer’s journey. Customers can streamline work between teams by aggregating data during the “evaluate” and “purchase” touchpoints, and capture service interactions to ultimately build rich, real-time customer profiles.
  • Improve Customer Experiences
    A seamless customer experience allows for anticipating needs before they arise. With ServiceNow, organizations will understand which products or services the customer owns and uses, allowing organizations to drive towards greater personalization.

Learn how to create connected experiences

Gilbane’s Digital Experience Conference

Washington DC April 28 – 29, Workshops May 1

attendees taking notes

Connections are core to digital experience initiatives at every level. At the top, your organization needs connections with customers that are genuine, consistent, on-target, and fast. Delivering this requires that connections with partners, and employees, have similar qualities and smooth supporting processes. And technology systems also need to be connected in ways that enhance the experiences of each of your audiences. Jeff Cram will help you get a handle on how all this connects!

A106. Creating Connected Experiences

Stop acquiring more marketing technology and start better connecting it to your digital customer experiences. This session helps you realize the full potential of your existing martech investment by better aligning it to your customer experience strategy and digital execution. Drawing from decades of experience leading complex, digital experience initiatives, Cram and team share practical frameworks and models to find and fix the cracks in your digital customer experience and better connect your marketing technology to support the customer journey.

Monday, April 29: 4:15 p.m. – 5:00 p.m.

Three millennial tech myths busted

Ben Bajarin shares findings from a recent study of mostly 18-24 year olds. Many of you are likely to be surprised by at least one of the “busted myths”, that: “Millenials are Done with Facebook”, “The PC is Dead to Millenials”, and “Face to Face Meetings are not Desirable”. Read More

Complexity and strategy

and cost and return in building software products. This is both fascinating as an inside look at Microsoft Office development and competitive strategy, and important for software development and product managers new to large complex products.

I struggled with how to think about complexity through much of my career, especially during the ten years I spent leading Office development. Modeling complexity impacted how we planned major releases, our technical strategy as we moved to new platforms, how we thought about the impact of new technologies, how we competed with Google Apps, how we thought about open source and throughout “frank and open” discussions with Bill Gates on our long term technical strategy for building the Office applications. Read More

Ad agencies and accountability

…if Google and Facebook have all of the responsibility, then shouldn’t they also be getting all of the money? What exactly is WPP’s 15% being used for? … If ad agencies want to be relevant in digital advertising, then they need to generate value independent of managing creative and ad placement: policing their clients’ ads would be an excellent place to start. Read More
