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

The best use case for bynder is very simple. Bynder is for any organization that has over 200 digital assets and has the need to search and organize their assets in a way that is empowering. Bynder is great if you want to further your DAM system and couple it with ML. A bad use case for bynder is for any organization that has a "store everything on the network drive" mindset. If you are in this category, don't be offended, we all start somewhere but be open to better organization of your 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

  • Search or Elastic Search - The power to search tens of thousands of image without much lag time
  • Powerful templates that are available for users
  • Ability to share collection of images with anyone in a click or two
  • Powerful API - Although API is more used for technical staff, the API also allows easy integration with any systems
  • Ability to store meta and exif information and search through them
  • Single Sign On integration with all of your existing system (particularly LDAP or ADFS)

Cons

  • A lot of the OOB (Out Of the Box) components are still a little buggy and not fully ready to go without some minor tweaks.
  • Since the software was acquired not too long ago by Adobe, a lot of Adobe integrated solutions are not fully baked yet. That is getting better with time.

  • 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

Adobe CQ has training classes that you can be in or watch to get a better understanding. They have some of the best customer support so if you run into any problems you can just contact them put a ticket in and they will fix it or work with you to fix the problem or issue you are running into.

Usability

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

We selected Adobe CQ mostly for the ease of page authoring in brought to our non-technical staff. Powerful and simple UI widgets made it very simple for our merchandiser to create, edit and publish new pages. It also allowed us to customize those widgets to fit their needs while keeping the same clean experience. We also saw a plus in the ability to run activation workflows based on our own organization hierarchy, which helped make sure the right pages were exposed to the right eyes before going live. Overall, it was the mixture of user-friendliness of the authoring interface with the robustness of the technology stack that convinced us to go with CQ.

In terms of competition, there are a lot of paid and free versions of digital asset management systems. However, what Bynder provides is not just a DAM system or software but also an iOS app and even beyond this. The bynder team provides enterprise infrastructure without any organization having to hire a cloud engineer just to implement Bynder. Many software out there promise way too much and when it comes to implementation, it ended up costing more on the engineering side of the implementation. Bynder is more of a SAAS plus professional service.

  • 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.
