Integrating Adobe Experience Manager 6.1 with Activation - Dynamic Tag Management

You can integrate Adobe Experience Manager (AEM) with the Digital Cloud Service named Activation (formally named Dynamic Tag Management). Activation is a Digital Marketing cloud service that allows a marketer to manage Adobe and third-party tags used for tracking or other analytic purposes. It is done through client-side scripting that injects tag related code throughout the pages of the site. For example, you can inject JavaScript code into all footers and headers that belong to AEM pages.

You define rules in the Activation web client, as shown in this illustration.

The previous illustration shows an Activation rule named TestOnLoadChrome. This rule is basically an event handler that is fired when a page is opened. The condition is define so that this rule fires only when the browser is Chrome. The logic that is defined is simply JavaScript that creates a pop-up message.

alert("Hello Chrome"); 

Once you define and approve Activation rules using the Activation web client, you can embed these rules into AEM web pages. When this rule is embedded into an AEM web page, this rule is fired when an AEM web page is opened in Chrome, as shown in this illustration.
