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.

It's well suited to be your overall repository of content... especially diverse content. It's less useful for content-in-development as the version control is not what it could be for documents that are being collaborated on by multiple people. But once the thing is done, and you have a final version (at least for now) then Bynder's your best choice.

Pros

Adobe Experience Manager

  • Adobe Experience Manager keeps your content separate from your layout which allows for a lot of flexibility in how you display your content.
  • Adobe Experience Manager integrates really well with other Adobe products like Adobe Analytics.
  • Adobe Experience Manager 's drag and drop interface makes it fairly easy to utilize with minimal familiarity.

  • Searching Imagery: The way imagery is filtered in Bynder is what drew us to the software in the first place. The filters we were able to set up makes finding approved imagery much easier. You're able to use the filters to drill down to very specific images (ie: smiling woman coconut farmer), where that process used to require us to search through several folders on our filing system to find the right photo.
  • Metadata/Tagging: This is along the same line as searching but the metadata and tagging in the portal makes it so easy to find exactly what you're looking for.
  • User Experience: The ease of use is one of my favorite features. We were able to roll this program out to over 70 people (some who didn't speak English as their first language) with minimal training and even less support needed after launching.
  • Downloading Options: We like being able to give our staff several options for downloading whether they need a PSD image for graphic design, a high-resolution print ready image, or just a low-resolution screen-ready image. This allows us to field even less requests for specific sizes or file types.

Cons

Adobe Experience Manager

  • 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.

  • Bynder Guidelines - not much customization available, looks like a blog but we use it for a different purpose and would like to customize the format.
  • Sharing assets - we wish we could share single assets with our entire org (not just those with a login) via a link that is only accessible to those with an org email.
  • Duplicate assets - I wish Bynder could detect a duplicate asset that is uploaded.

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 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

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

I think AEM is specific to the client's needs and is not necessarily comparable to all other platforms. However, when compared feature to feature I think AEM many times is a leader in the industry. While WordPress has progressed in the WYSIWYG interface it is not there still today and this is truly where AEM shines against all of the other CMS platforms.

WebDAM and Bynder merged, so we didn't have to choose between them. We found these two had the best templating functions, which was a must have for our clients. Their permissions and user group management also seem to be the most robust. We found their support, including site, documents and staff to be the most responsive

Return on Investment

Adobe Experience Manager

  • Our brand requires a high level of polish and crisp functionality. AEM provides that for us. We do look as good as possible and it reflects well on our brand.
  • We can product new pages rapidly with our modules and so we can keep our content fresh and relevant.
  • Our brand value has risen considerably since we polished our web properties with AEM.
Saren Sakurai | TrustRadius Reviewer

Bynder

  • While we don't track exact metrics around our digital assets, I can confidently say that Bynder has cut down on time significantly for our communications team. We no longer spend 20-30 minutes searching for photos or selecting photos for our colleagues -- now we go straight to Bynder to find it, and our colleagues can do the same.
