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

BounceX

BounceX is well suited if you want to boost list/customer base growth, but a tricky aspect of it for me is that I don't know the benefit smaller companies would get from BounceX to accelerate growth without having an existing customer base.

Cons

  • Styling the front-end of the author interface can sometimes be challenging. Built in styles and HTML can be overwhelming until you get used to it. Having a less intrusive author output or defining a standard output per site could speed development.
  • Documentation is often outdated, keeping docs up to date and readily available is needed.
  • The local build process is slow and takes a lot of space. Reducing the overhead with local testing would be great!

  • Flexibility with iterating versions of behavioral email sequences - currently running into some issues with emails being inflexible when we think we have room to grow
  • Designing emails within brand standards
  • Identifying new areas for intent nurturing and improvement without making a site seem too cluttered

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.

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

We have used both Hybris and AEM, Hybris for e-commerce site and AEM for front facing site. Generally we prefer AEM due to the ease of use and user friendliness, as well as improved interface

Return on Investment

  • AEM allows authors to push content live in a matter of minutes. This has greatly increased launch times for business.
  • Good integration with Adobe Marketing suite allows for analytics.
  • Poor documentation of the system proves a challenge for developers and administrators.

  • Excellent ROI, easy to message the efficiency of what BounceX improves instead of bringing Bounce experiences in-house.
