Hello All,

 

I have been reading some new articles regarding the new ACDL (https://github.com/adobe/adobe-client-data-layer/wiki), that it has been created to standardise the datalayer object.

 

My question is, as far as I know, Adobe already tried to standardise the Data Layer by naming/creating it as "digitalData", but I am seeing now on this new ACDL that the given name is "adobeDataLayer". Why is not the same name if the goal is to standardise it? Or am I mixing topics?

 

Thank you very much in advance for your help and knowledge on this!

@rutx3 I believe the "digitalData" name was part of a W3C specification that came out around 2013. It was not an Adobe standard: https://www.w3.org/2013/12/ceddl-201312.pdf
