Customer Journey Analytics (CJA) provides a toolkit to the business intelligence and data science teams for stitching and analysis of cross-channel data (online and offline). The capabilities within CJA deliver context and clarity to the complex multi-channel customer journey. The provided context leads to actionable insight into removing pain points from the customer conversion process and designing and delivering exceptional experiences for the moments that matter most.
CJA brings Analysis Workspace on top of Adobe Experience Platform. Adobe Experience Platform is the brain for communication and orchestration and with CJA, brands can now contextualize and visualize all that data, so that Business and Insight teams can learn from it by analyzing the full online to offline customer journey.
Business and Insight teams can talk to CJA, ask questions and get answers on the fly with the drag-and-drop, point-and-click and user-friendly UI of Analysis Workspace.
The three main benefits for customers are:
CJA isn’t intended to replace a current BI application such as Power BI, Microstrategy, Locker or Tableau. These BI applications are meant to visualize data to create corporate dashboards so that everyone in an organization can quickly look at important metrics.
CJA’s goal is to bring analysis power to Marketing and Business teams making it a ‘must have’ analysis tool for those personas.
Traditionally, BI applications have been incapable of enabling true customer intelligence:
Because of the above, business users and analysts hit dead ends almost immediately, making analysis expensive, slow, inflexible and disconnected from systems of action.
With CJA you can have a 360 view of the customer journey, using offline and online data, with the right tools to reduce the time to insight, making business users independent in understanding why something happened, and how to respond to it.
Before starting the next exercises it’s key to understand what steps are needed to bring data from Adobe Experience Platform into CJA in order to visualize it and get some deep insights. It’s what we call CJA Workflow. Let’s have a look at it:
Before starting the above steps, don’t forget about step 0, which is to understand the data that is available in Adobe Experience Platform.
Garbage in, garbage out. Remember? You must have a clear idea of what data is available and how the schemas in Adobe Experience Platform are configured. Understanding the data that is in Adobe Experience Platform will make things easier, not only on the data connection part, but also when building visualizations and doing analysis.
Please have a look a these schemas and datasets in Adobe Experience Platform.
|AEP Demo - Website Interactions||AEP Demo - Website Interactions Schema|
|AEP Demo - Call Center Interactions||AEP Demo - Call Center Interactions Schema|
|AEP Demo - Voice Assistant Interactions||AEP Demo - Voice Assistant Interactions Schema|
Make sure to have at least checked things like:
Identities: CRMID, MobileNr, ECID, emailId. Which identities are the primary identifiers, which ones are the secondary identifiers?
You can find the identifiers by opening a schema and looking at the object
--aepTenantId--.identification. Have a look at the schema Platform Demo - Website Interactions Schema.
Explore the commerce object inside the schema Platform Demo - Website Interactions Schema.
Preview all the datasets and have a look at the data
You’re now ready to start using the Customer Journey Analytics UI.
