Adobe Experience Manager

If you have a number of smaller parts of your organization that you want to maintain the same look & feel as the rest of the organization, it is easy to create a base site and then let them customize. Also, if you have contributors of content who are not involved in the web site maintenance - our professors, for example - they can enter the text on a basic page which is then incorporated through tagging

Avid Interplay Media Asset Manager

Interplay is well suited to teams with multiple people who need access to the same media at the same time. We can have producers and editors working simultaneously on the same project, using the same media, even sharing bins. If you're working solo, or have a much smaller team it might be overkill.

Pros

  • Media library and asset management is simplified, separating storage and also allowing developers to manage the workflow of the publishing process.
  • No addition of API services are required, using the same requests and data access layer for both front end and back end development simplifies the project lifecycle.
  • Duplicating code is easy, developers can simply copy components and reuse or rework for each use case.

Cons

  • Migration. We had multiple environments that we were constantly moving content back and forth on. Moving the content over through CQ was a bit of a challenge.
  • Integration. In some instances, Adobe CQ's built in modules would fight with custom modules. Usually the problems went away on their own.
  • Forms. Sometimes when adding a form to the page, the TO and CC sections would show up as empty when they had email addresses. Then when you went to change them, you couldn't close the settings window without clicking cancel.

Adobe CQ has training classes that you can be in or watch to get a better understanding. They have some of the best customer support so if you run into any problems you can just contact them put a ticket in and they will fix it or work with you to fix the problem or issue you are running into.

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

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

AEM exceeds WordPress on customizability. It is the backbone for the many modules and APIs we need to run our business.

Final Cut Server was a mess and wasn't really supported by Apple anymore when we were last using it. Avid has good support and we know they're going to be around and support their products. It's also just a better fit for our workflow in terms of producing content, as well as archival and storage solutions.

  • AEM allows for a work stream and multiple authors for quickly publishing thought leadership articles.
  • From blogs to home screens, AEM allows us to build for many types of marketing projects.

  • I can't speak to the finances, but I believe as a whole it has helped our department's efficiency in producing video content.
