The "Experience Accelerator" is the way that Evolv implements changes and delivers content to our customers’ pages.
It is great for security-conscious customers because it provides a level of security that can usually only be achieved only through a full-stack solution, but in a way that’s much easier to set up.
In addition, the EA uses a hash ring approach which gives consistent combination allocations - removing the need for cookies when the customer is defining the user id. This is great for working with ITP (Intelligent Tracking Prevention) as we have no information stored client-side to be cleared out.
It also improves the performance of the page relative to alternative methods, reducing lag and flickering because it only makes a single response to the server.
Projects are configured and QA’d in exactly the same way as execution plan. The only difference is in the integration code. Context matching, audience filtering, entry pages, and traffic throttling are all still supported.
