Data Collection is the next generation of mobile SDK and website tag management capabilities. The tags capability gives customers a simple way to deploy and manage all of the analytics, marketing, and advertising solutions necessary to power relevant customer experiences. There is no additional charge for tags. It is available to any Adobe Experience Cloud customer.
In this lesson, you will create a tag property for mobile apps.
