2017. Adobe Campaign gets AI-features
Adobe announced a number of new capabilities for its Adobe Campaign email marketing tools. Most of these are available now (better dashboards, new email templates, better support for multilingual campaigns), but the most interesting are new machine learning-powered features that allow to find the best subject lines for emails and soon, it’ll also be able to suggest just the right image to show to the right person who opens a marketing email. Another new predictive feature the company showed off is a new tool for predicting customer churn based on how users engage with emails. That’s some pretty standard machine-learning stuff, but like all of these projects, it’s only as good as the data you feed it. Combined with data from Campaigns, this tool can predict when a customer is likely to unsubscribe from a service, for example.

2015. Teradata acquired app marketing platform Appoxee
Analytics company Teradata acquired (for about $20 million) Appoxee, an Israeli push-messaging startup aimed at publishers and developers that want to increase user engagement in their apps. Appoxee’s business addresses one of the bigger issues in the world of apps today: keeping users coming back to and using your app, in the face of those users downloading yet another new app instead, always moving on to the next big thing. Appoxee gives developers a way to addresses this using push messages — sending messages to you to remind you to finish playing a game, or to send you info about an app update, or coupons for goods in the app. It also has a platform to help build these push messaging campaigns.
