It is advisable to create custom designs that call for specific programs and content without giving direct access to those programs. We still have to meet the proposed use case where it should not be used.

Adobe Experience Manager

We were expanding into a more aggressive social media approach and [Adobe Experience Manager] made all the difference. It has also allowed us to [promote] contactless documentation and eSignatures during the pandemic. It makes it so simple to manage various media- social, desktop, tablet, phone, whatever- all from one workspace. It is well suited for pretty much anything within the digital marketing and CMS fields.

Pros

Acoustic Content (formerly IBM Watson Content Hub)

  • It has a wide variety of built-in API calls.
  • Building unique pages is simple and straightforward and requires only basic fundamental knowledge to get started.
  • More advanced API calls can be developed simply.
Ben Williams | TrustRadius Reviewer

Adobe Experience Manager

  • Content and assets are managed effectively with AEM, which allows team members to utilize this content effectively.
  • Moreover, as it is part of the Adobe suite, its integration with other Adobe products such as ACS is very easy and effective, compared with others.
  • Components availability

Cons

Acoustic Content (formerly IBM Watson Content Hub)

  • It doesn't work well with our IBM systems and as you might expect, that seems to be a common problem with IBM products.
  • Application settings are bad and some items are easily accessible and can be buried in menus
Madusanka Balapitiya | TrustRadius Reviewer

Adobe Experience Manager

  • The new Touch UI interface could use a lot of improvement. Many of it is smaller detail items/features, but when using the system extensively it can become cumbersome.
  • There is a bit of a learning curve because of the depth of what Adobe Experience Manager can do. Even basic editing and page creation, while relatively simple at the most basic level, is not as intuitive and easy to use as other systems like Wordpress.
  • Development can be complicated. Although I've not personally done much in terms of dev work, my experience and what I've heard from my colleagues indicates that there are some complexities that make it not as easy to develop in as other systems.
  • The source edit option within the rich text editor does not include syntax coloring for the code, or even a different serif/monospaced font. It is the same sans serif font as the regular rich text, which makes it hard to read.

We had and still have a fantastic experience using Adobe CQ. Lots of flexibility, great integration with other Adobe products we already use and a powerful technology make it a great fit for our corporate environment. Also as the community grows, it makes it easier to network with other developers and users to get new ideas on how to continue to get the best out of the software.

I personally feel that AEM is very intuitive to use from an authoring standpoint. The entire CMS was engineered around the author. Everything about AEM is geared to helping authors generate and maintain content. There are ways that tool tips can be customized so that any individual could simply hover over and be guided step by step on how to author web content

Adobe Experience Manager, in all its capacity, is a great alternative to any other CMS you are using. It helps in rapid development and makes life easier for maintaining the website for multi-language sites. Technical know-how is eliminated at content authoring. Better documentation in terms of live examples with videos would be appreciated.

Depending on your individual needs, It is really quite simple to create an authoring experience for a website that looks really good. I have been part of many implementations and many teams and have seen many projects that were super successful and others that were not implemented well. AEM has room for a lot of flexibility in the implementation process compared to other CMS like SharePoint

Alternatives Considered

Acoustic Content (formerly IBM Watson Content Hub)

I haven't had experience outside of the IBM applications but can confirm that compared to other content tools provided by IBM, this is one of the more complete packages.
Ben Williams | TrustRadius Reviewer

Adobe Experience Manager

I think AEM is specific to the client's needs and is not necessarily comparable to all other platforms. However, when compared feature to feature I think AEM many times is a leader in the industry. While WordPress has progressed in the WYSIWYG interface it is not there still today and this is truly where AEM shines against all of the other CMS platforms.
