Adobe Experience Manager

Adobe Experience Manager is great for managing a collection of sites in a manner that ensures all the sites are on-brand (adheres to an organization's image guidelines) and that also ensures that each individual site is not too rigid; the content on each site can still be customized to appeal to the intended audience.

CA Wily CEM

CA Wily is well suited for monitoring the load balanced application nodes and determine their main performance bottlenecks like if problem exists in heap or in some connection issues. But I think when it comes to providing the entire report of the application, it is less appropriate as there is no way to create the entire report of the test for all the counters monitored. Also there is no way to detect some issues based on the system configuration.

  • Heap Consumption in the Application servers and its traces throughout the test scenarios.
  • Active number of database connections from application server to the database server.
  • It provides the CPU usage in the JVM and also provides if all the instances of application server are having load while running the test on the load balancing server.
  • Traces the active number of threads in each node of application server.

Cons

  • A decent amount of technical knowledge is needed to set up templates for sites.
  • The capabilities of the different kind of users don't align very well with the different roles/job functions at some organizations.

  • To kill the thread explicitly in the server as per our need.
  • To explicitly invoke the garbage collection so as to monitor the load as per our desire.
  • Sampling frequency to be reduced to get more deterministic of some counters.
  • Determine the first response byte from the server.

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 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.

CA Application Performance Management (APM) is the solution global brands trust to proactively identify and resolve performance and availability issues across physical, virtual, cloud, and mobile applications. CA APM is easy, proactive, intelligent and collaborative, so every user transaction becomes a loyalty-building interaction. CA Application Performance Management is an application lifecycle management solution for businesses of all sizes while we tried to use Dynatrace but as we get more familiar with CA Wily by the time we analyzed Dynatrace, we were interested to use it and see the results how it goes.

Return on Investment

  • Adobe Experience Manager has helped us drastically reduce support requests from our customers and partner organizations
  • Adobe Experience Manager has helped ensure all our sites remain on-brand, without curtailing creativity and customization.

  • One APM solution can manage application systems distributed across many data centers, ones you own, and ones that you do not. The APM solution simply follows your application around. If you use VMware vMotion to move a VM that contains a Java application, the APM solution simply adjusts.
  • You benefit from the combination of the hosted back end and the Agile development practices of the APM vendor. If the APM vendor only has to enhance and maintain one copy of the back end, that back end can be evolved much more quickly than if the vendor has to ship software to customers and then support multiple back releases. So with an APM as a Service offering, the value of the offering simply improves over time at a faster rate than with on premise software.
  • We do not have to install and maintain an application system and its associated middleware and databases in order to manage your applications. There is only one back end and it is managed by the vendor.
