How to Combat Possible Adobe Analytics Data Loss

Adobe Analytics data loss

Early this morning, Adobe sent a letter to Adobe Analytics customers addressing “some gaps in your data between April 13 and April 16.” For organizations who rely on accurate, up-to-date information output by Adobe Analytics, this is obviously a cause for alarm.

Today you’re likely asking your team, “Now what?”

If your organization has experienced data loss with Adobe Analytics, there may still be ways to address the matter.

1. Data Science Modeling

Adobe actually mentioned this approach in their letter to clients, as well. An experienced data science team can develop an impact analysis, allowing you to better understand the full scope of data loss.

2. Leverage Your Other Analytics Platforms

If you have Google Analytics (free) or Analytics 360 (enterprise-level) implemented side-by-side with Adobe Analytics, utilize these platforms to cover the data gaps that may have occurred. As Adobe noted, you should strongly “consider excluding data for those time periods [April 13-16] from your reporting entirely.”

3. Turn to the Cloud

Ideally, if you are leveraging other analytics platforms, that data can be exported into a cloud platform (like BigQuery, for example.) That data can then be used to supplement basic metrics lost in Adobe Analytics between April 13-16, filling in at least some of the gaps.
