Intro to CJA from the Lens of an Adobe Analytics Veteran

This session was presented by an Adobe Analytics veteran Derek Tangren, the session covered the basics of CJA and how Adobe analytics differs from CJA from perspective of those who have working knowledge of Adobe Analytics

He goes on to explain in three different aspects or categories

  • how is data structured and organised
  • how dat is collected and processed
  • 8 different use cases of application of CJA

Flex Your Data Muscles: How to Rewrite History on the Fly with CTA.

This session was presented by Nils Engel, Expert Solution Consultant at Adobe and focused on how to use CJA to rewrite history on the fly & Improving reporting and analysis by shifting where data manipulation occurs!.

Key CJA feature takeaways

  • Use advanced functions to manipulate field value
  • merge multiple fields together or replace values
  • Get past implement and data issues and new analysis goals
  • Moving data processing to report time significantly reduces effort
  • Changing data and analysis needs can be handle in stride
  • Speed to insights answer questions faster.

My 2 cents

My thoughts on all things Adobe Analytics

  • Some great sessions which act as Good Primer to understand “under the hood” of CJA
  • Creating more dimensions and metrics and unlimited options is double edged sword, should not be primary reason to switch
  • Adobe analytics not going anywhere anytime soon
  • A clear focus on more features being developed for CJA with so much focus on AEP and it’s CDP capabilities
  • Gap between “Can CJA do everything AA does” reducing with new feature being released
