Integrating Adobe Experience Manager with with Adobe Analytics, Target and DTM

You can create Adobe Experience Manager (AEM) solutions that integrate with these Ditigal Marketing products: Adobe Analytics, Target, and Dynamic Tag Manager (DTM). Adobe Analytics is the industry-leading solution that provides digital marketers with one place to measure, analyze, and optimize integrated data from all online initiatives across multiple marketing channels. It provides marketers with actionable, real-time web analytics intelligence about digital strategies and marketing initiatives.

Adobe Target is a personalization solution that lets you easily identify content through tests that are easy to execute. Therefore, you can deliver the best experience to your web visitors.

DTM Dynamic Tag Manager is a Digital Marketing cloud service that allows a marketer to manage Adobe and third-party tags used for tracking or other analytic purposes. It is done through client-side scripting that injects tag related code throughout the pages of the site.

By using these products together, you can build engaging solutions that let you deliver the best content to a given web site visitor. That is, you display content from AEM DAM that meets the interest of the visitor. This development article walks you through how to build a solution that uses AEM, Analytics, Target, and DTM.

The following illustration provides an oerview of the Marketing Cloud solutions used in this article.

Passing Values between AEM Workflow Steps

You can develop a custom Adobe Experience Manager (AEM) workflow step that sets a value that can be retrieved by another step in the same workflow. For example, assume you read a property of a payload and you need that value in a later step. You can store the value and retrieve it in a later step.

To read and write values in an AEM workflow, you need to write custom steps. A custom workflow step is implemented as an OSGi bundle that you can build using Maven and the AEM Workflow APIs that belong to the com.adobe.granite.workflow.exec package. For information, see Package com.adobe.granite.workflow.exec.

To demonstrate how to pass values in a workflow between steps, this article uses the following workflow model.
