Adobe Experience Manager

Adobe is an enterprise level software that is best suited for large amounts of web content. The entire web management experience is engineered around the author. It is a large solution with many capabilities readily available to you out of the box.

Asana

Asana is completely customizable! I would use it for almost all of my daily, weekly and one off tasks. It does take some time to start to think in "Asana-brain" rather than in "Email-brain." Asana works best when your whole team is on board and commits to using Asana as the main mode of internal communication. While it is easy to create templates out of tasks, you can't create project templates easily, so using it as a training module, for example, is difficult

Pros

  • AEM is great for customization. Web Dev builds the parts and authors use what they need.
  • Branding can be ensured with the ability to require brand colors, fonts, and styles.
  • It's easy to see who has built, modified, and published pages. It makes tracking changes very convenient.

  • Task tracking & prioritization. Simple and exactly to the point.
  • Ease-of-use, simplicity. Product keeps out of the way and is way lighter than comparable products.
  • Cloud-based. Desktop and mobile based management.

Cons

  • Cost. AEM is expensive.
  • Touch UI not as intuitive as classic UI.

  • Really hard to force behavior on this platform - when I use it, I like it, but we are not consistent enough across our team to truly utilize it
  • Steep learning curve - it is not possible to really master this platform without the videos and tutorials, even for young tech-savvy employees
  • Hate having to add a specific date for each deliverable, but if you don't add a specific one, it clutters up the top of your task list

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 can't find a glaring flaw within Asana. It does what it is supposed to do, and for free for up to 15 people. I really can't complain. Nitpicking I can do, but not really complain. It's just one of those things where if you took it away from someone, they would immediately feel less connected to their team (online) and feel less productive

Usability

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

They don't fix everything, but they have certainly gone the extra mile for us. When we were frustrated with a recent change that altered our default view of every project, changing it from all projects being visible to just incomplete projects being visible, they wrote a custom script to change all of our default views back for us, so we didn't have to manually click 3,000 times (we have over a thousand projects).

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

I would say that Adobe CQ and WordPress come in neck and neck. They both have easy to understand dashboards, and both require a knowledge of a specific programming language. If you are more comfortable with JSP and Java, Adobe CQ is right for you; if you are more of a PHP person, then WordPress may be a better choice. Adobe CQ, however, controls resources 10 times better than WordPress. Looking for an image or document is easier and more organized than WordPress
