Adobe Experience Manager

It's a great fit for editors and marketing communications staff to quickly update sites from virtually anywhere (with an Internet connection). It's likely useless for sales professionals, and might prove too pricey for start-ups or DIY bloggers compared to other solutions.

Amaxus

Amaxus is well suited as a development platform and content management system for companies who have a dedicated, experienced development team because it has such complex functionality. It is not well suited for companies whose main content updater will be a person with limited development experience, because it is so hard to learn and understand how to use.

Pros

  • User friendly interface is easy to learn for people that do not have a technical background and it is easy to train employees how to use it.
  • The flexibility of content management. The content hierarchy on the website is easily changeable because it allows the user to move things around at any stage of the content management process, before or after publishing.
  • The structure of the system in templates and components is very logical and easy to explain to the senior management and/or project sponsors.

  • There is a lot of flexibility and power with what you can do.
  • The client has a lot of power to make changes on their own without needing a development team.

Cons

  • Allow all vested parties to a project to be notified once any changes occur to a page
  • Allow for paid media campaign management

  • There is a huge learning curve for developers. All our new website builds were going beyond the timeline because of the learning curve.
  • It is very complex and teaching our clients how to use it required several training sessions.

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

Implementation

Adobe Experience Manager8.7
Based on 2 answers
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

After using Hybris I would love to go back to Adobe CQ. Although we didn't use CQ for an e-commerce it is a lot easier to use and understand compared to Hybris. Adobe CQ has better documentation to figure out how to use it than Hybris does and CQ also has a better UI.

I have used an in-house CMS which was very simple and only allowed the user to update very basic templated content, and I have used Sitecore, which is sort of like a middle-of-the-road. Sitecore is great because it allows for the user to have a lot of control over templates and updating content, but it's not so complex that it is very difficult and time-consuming to learn how to use, like Amaxus.

  • It has a negative impact because it put us back on our timelines.
  • It had a negative impact because our customers didn't like the learning curve to use it.
  • It had a negative impact because it caused so much stress among our team to learn it.
