Adobe Experience Manager

Adobe Experience Manager is well suited for large organizations that need a powerful, comprehensive and robust CMS to manage multiple websites/translations of websites. It is also well suited for those who need a CMS that is well integrated with other systems such as analytics, targeting and email marketing, or those who want some fancy add ons like Adobe smart tags or AI-enhanced capabilities.It is also an expensive product with a steep learning curve, so it is less appropriate for smaller companies/individuals or those that don't need an overly robust system that is integrated with other digital marketing tools. If you're looking for a more affordable solution that is easy to pick up and play, go with a more basic WordPress or Joomla type option.

Pros

  • Adobe Experience Manager is great for maintaining large websites with lots of content. It has a comprehensive repository and folder structure which makes it easy to organize and break down your website into sections.
  • Although we have not personally used it much yet, Adobe Experience Manager has integrations with the other Adobe Experience Cloud products such as Campaign, Target, and Analytics. The newest version(s) also have integrations with Creative Cloud products like Photoshop, which allows creatives to upload assets directly into the DAM.
  • Adobe Experience Manager has powerful live copy/translation tools that allow you to clone and translate webpages into other languages for alternate language versions of your site.

Cons

  • Upgrading and applying patches can be hit or miss - I recommend backups because of the potential to damage the existing infrastructure
  • Space management is an issue - every change or request takes up space that can be reclaimed, but only through a complicated procedure done through command prompts. There was no documentation for this on their site and we had to use a third party to create the procedure. It has to be run manually.
  • There isn't a good backup system, particularly one that can be scheduled to run reliably.

  • BITRIX does not provide multilingual features to the user-defined contents, although Bitrix does provide multilingual capabilities on system UI specific stuff. For example if our site is publishing company news then BITRIX does not provide an out of the box feature to implement this in different languages.

I'll continue to use this product for many years. Adobe is making it clear they are taking customer feedback seriously and there continues to be growing demand for Adobe CQ implementations. As a developer, I find that there is still lots of room in this platform to try new techniques and really keep our implementations up to par with the latest standards.

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

Adobe Experience Manager was chosen by our procurement team over the alternatives we considered primarily because of its seamless integration with other Adobe solution, which we were already using

I have developed some small web sites in Joomla but the problem is that these kinds of CMS platforms are very easily hackable.

Return on Investment

  • We have been able to meet our first objective of rolling out a site to replace our current Students site well within time parameters
  • We were able to deploy the site to replace our County Offices within three months, and the users have been able to turn out acceptable content

  • Bitrix Site Manager provides an out of the box way to publish contents on a search engine friendly URL. In this way, site contents more easily crawlable by different search engines.
