Additionally, Scott has recently recertified the ACE exams for Adobe Analytics Developer and Adobe Analytics Business Practitioner, as well as the Adobe Certified Master recertification exam for the Adobe Analytics Architect. We asked Scott why he wanted to recertify these Analytics exams, his response was: “Certifications are a great way to personally confirm that I'm staying up on items that are important for data collection. With how much change we see in the analytics world, especially over the last couple of years, it can be really easy to get behind if you don't consciously stay on top of things. It's also nice when starting work clients who are less familiar with Adobe Analytics to be able to give them an easy way to trust your knowledge and credibility from the start.”

Scott is an Analytics Architect and has been with Hoodoo Digital since March of 2020. He has worked on multiple projects designing and maintaining Adobe Analytics implementations. We are very proud of his hard work in completing the Adobe Target Business Practitioner certification, as well as the Adobe Analytics recertifications, and are so glad to have him part of the Hoodoo team.
