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

Bynder

I think for any company that wants a better way to share approved and up-to-date assets that are searchable then Bynder is the way to go. We still use Dropbox for storing all of our working files and most of our data (including imagery, etc); but Bynder is what we're able to share with the rest of the workforce in order to actually find these assets. The searchability really makes this system a no-brainer and it has saved our design and Project Management team hours (overall) from searching for requested assets.

Pros

  • It is easy for people who are not web designers to achieve an attractive and useful website
  • It is easy to manage users and their permissions
  • It allows users to assemble their digital assets in one place, for use on the web site
Diana Williams profile photo
  • User-friendly interface, clean and easy to navigate - this has helped with adoption and training so that staff feel empowered to use the portal.
  • Completely customizable filters - particularly helpful for locating specific photos quickly.
  • Storage - safe and secure web based storage, frees up tons of space on our org Google drive and server.

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.

  • Support Team can be a little slow but that is understandable with a startup company (even though this company is no longer a start up)
  • API documentation can be better because there is only 1 product owner for API function (poor developer getting bombarded with requests)
  • Implementation requires more hand holding especially for the companies that do not have in-house technical expertise

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

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

Once the issue was identified we looked at a damn lot of DAMs. Bynder, Media Valet, Webdam, Canto, Cumulus... I can't even remember them all. But that was the problem. There were too many. When one of our team evaluated Bynder he reported back vis a vis the legacy tools of Box/DropBox/Evernote... all of which had their adherents within our team and NONE of which came close to matching Bynder. So, the decision really became "do we switch now to Bynder, which everyone accepts, or do we spend a year thoroughly testing every other tool until we've broken up again into rival camps?" It was easy. If and when Bynder fails we may look again. But everything's going great now, so why open this can of worms?

Return on Investment

  • Extreme flexibility and speed to publish new pages with as little as a few hours of notice. This allowed us to be more efficient in handling landing pages for lead generation.
  • Powerful technology stack that allows for an infinite amount of customization. New ideas came up as we learned all the capabilities of CQ. It helped us innovate in the way we build and author pages.
  • Poor documentation and small community slowed our initial ramp up and development times until first release. By now this should have improved with the increased popularity.

  • The positive impact that Bynder has on our organization is that it allowed Sales to focus on selling instead of searching for images. On average, the response time to our customer quote inquiries has dropped by 20%
  • Another positive impact that Bynder has is that it allows our sales staff to easily store images without much thought and Bynder stores them according to our pre-defined schema and workflow.
  • Bynder overall has allowed our staff to understand how to organize digital assets instead of relying on network folders.
