It’s under this light that we’re proud to be once again named amongst the Leaders in the 2020 Gartner Magic Quadrant for Ad Tech.

We believe Adobe Advertising Cloud excels in the following domains:

Vision: Adobe understands advertising’s role within the customer journey and the importance of delivering a connected experience, which has never been more challenging. As the industry navigates changing privacy regulations, fragmentation, and measurement challenges with the continued rise of walled-gardens, and preparing for a cookie-less future, brands and agencies need technology partners who are future-proofed. Adobe’s vision of advertising centers around advertising execution excellence, having a single truth source for reporting and optimization, seamless activation of first-party data, and connected advertising for holistic customer journey management via a unified profile.

Integrations: It’s now a widely accepted belief by brands that delivering powerful experiences must start with a good customer understanding. This customer understanding has never been more challenging as there has been a rise in more data inputs and customer touchpoints than we’ve ever seen before. The market has seen an increase in brands seeking connected technology stacks. For the most part, brands are moving away from point solutions and trending towards technology partners that can help them with advertising technology and marketing technology together, solving all these different challenges in one fell swoop. Our most recent case study with KeyBank highlights how the financial institution brought its marketing in-house, secured control of the brand narrative and gained a deeper understanding of its customers.

Omnichannel: As media consumption trends in 2020 shift, Advertising Cloud has made investments in next-generation partnerships and offerings to ensure we are future-proofed and are in the best position to help our customers reach their audiences. Adobe Advertising Cloud continues to connect all advertising channels for unified messaging and strategy. It combines advertising with marketing and creative to build the foundation for impactful customer experiences and results. Adobe provides strong omnichannel support for the DSP, across various channels, including paid search, display, video, audio, and CTV.

We believe Adobe’s position in the 2020 Gartner Magic Quadrant for Ad Tech helps validate our focus on delivering real value to our customers, especially as the industry undergoes so much change.
