Thanks for providing that.

In 3. Adobe Target Premium: I am struggling to understand the definition of "browser based channels" and "Desktop Web"

I want to know if it is possible to use Adobe Target premium on this desktop application Mendeley Desktop

Thanks

hi Nicolai,

As I know, Desktop applications needs to be manually updated to reflect any changes (or atleast have manual approval)

If it is possible to use adobe target with help of API or plugins, you have to make your application dynamic means providing internet while using API.

So, I thinks unless your desktop app isn't relaying on internet you can not use adobe target, but I will also like to know if there is any way.

Thanks,

Thanks gaureshk30144236for the rely

Yes thats clear.

Mendeley Desktop ​ does connect to the web so I think using API's will be possible. So this then a server-side implementation. I wonder how similar the approach would be to a mobile server-side implementation. Mobiles, like desktop are not *always* connected to the internet.

Does anyone here have any tips on how to deploy Adobe Target for desktop applications?

As you rightly said, I believe Target can be leveraged on desktop applications using server-side implementation and server-side delivery APIs.
