Adobe Experience Platform Integration Guide

This guide allows Experience Cloud partners to build an integration with the Adobe Experience Platform by hydrating the unified profile and consuming the real time profile in thier applications.  Adobe Experience Platform (AEP) is an open, intelligent and real-time platform for customer experience. It is a purpose built, open system that centralizes, standardizes and transforms customer experience data into customer profiles that update in real time, further leveraging AI-driven insights to help brands deliver optimized personalized experiences at scale across any channel. 

Adobe is looking for technology partners to integrate with Adobe Experience Platform to leverage and extend platform for multiple customer experience use cases, thereby delivering tremendous incremental value to joint customers. This could be in the form of integrations to hydrate and enrich Experience Platform’s real-time customer profile with data from the partner application/platform, integrations to extend data science and AI/ML functionality, or integrations to leverage Platform’s graph stitched, rich and comprehensive real-time customer profile for activation in the partner’s application/platform.

Adobe Experience Platform has integrated with customer support applications, loyalty management platforms, and voice of customer applications to optimize customer experiences and across verticals, from retail and CPG to travel and hospitality.  Partners have begun contributing valuable data that enables marketing and customer service organizations better analyze user behavior and the impact of campaigns and support strategies on various business KPIs across the customer journey, further enhancing the value of their combined offerings with Adobe.

The steps below describe the complete process for building an integration and bringing it to market. Please make sure to read and complete each step.
