Other Product Updates.

Data Sharing with Adobe Experience Platform.

Commerce site behaviors and events, like products viewed, items added to the cart, and customer logins, are some of the most valuable data a company can leverage for personalization. Now Adobe Commerce customers can easily share these storefront browser events with Adobe Experience Platform (AEP) and other Adobe Experience Cloud solutions to build rich customer profiles and personalize marketing campaigns and commerce experiences. This data can also be analyzed for deeper customer, campaign, and product insights to accelerate business growth. Future releases will enable customers to share server-side transaction events (like orders placed, returned, or shipped) and catalog data and use AEP segments to target promotional offers in Adobe Commerce.
