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

  • Provides instant access from anywhere with a web connection to content.
  • Enables development and use of large image repository that is well organized, promoting easy reuse and accessibility.
  • Accommodates near-real-time edits/changes; changes are reflected almost instantly, as soon as refreshed.
  • Adobe does a decent job of adding features and support, such as for new file formats (added PNG support, when previously only supported GIF and JPG).
  • User interface reminiscent of Microsoft Word, enabling fast customization.
  • Great way to add Cloud capabilities and content management to your workflow.
  • Easy to learn and use; learning curve minor.

Cons

  • In all honesty, Adobe Experience Manager is not without its glitches, like anything. Some errors have perplexed our internal IT staff.
  • Likely to require some finessing or customization to work with or port over assets in an existing system.
  • Check that it supports any ancillary, third-party or custom solutions you might already use.
  • Check on hardware requirements, to ensure your infrastructure is sufficient to take full advantage of AEM (web server capacity, speeds, etc.).

  • Sometimes have to reboot the system if things aren't working properly

Likelihood to Renew

Based on 5 answers
If I had the choice to renew, I would. Adobe CQ is one of the better CMS's I've been able to use. It's well organized, fast and easy to use. Although it is a little high in price, the fact that it does a good job justifies the decision to renew

Usability

Adobe Experience Manager10.0
Based on 2 answers
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

It really comes down to how much money you are willing to spend (Adobe is more) and the skill set of your developers (Sitecore is .NET vs. Adobe is Java).

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.

  • Clients seem very happy with AEM, mostly when they are not assisting in development
  • Overall a lot of work has been won because of our AEM expertise

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