Adobe Experience Manager

It is very well suited for large websites and clients with multiple properties where some data is shared. I would not recommend it for smaller websites as the overheard would be too much for small clients and basic websites.

Clickability

As a true content management system it is great for site and content creation. It does need some help when it comes to adding functionality for using modern code systems that require server side scripting. For a marketing or public company site, it is an ideal CMS. For a SAAS type site, there could be many road blocks.

Pros

  • Allows non-technical staff to author and publish content by focusing on the content itself and the needs of a given campaign instead of technical implementations.
  • Content workflows allow varying degrees of complexity for content review and quality assurance before providing approvals on any piece before going live.
  • Development teams can build very robust and complex component for handling virtually all posible needs: from integrating back-end web services to UI Widgets for content authoring; from multisite suites to multi-language components, CQ can handle it all thanks to the power of Java and the flexibility of Sling and JCR.
  • Easy to scale for high-traffic sites and thanks to the Publisher/Dispatcher infrastructure, very flexible for caching and load balancing.

  • Clickability is good at allowing information to be updated quickly by people that don't understand HTML markup or programing.
  • Clickability has a powerful programing language.
  • Clickbility allows you to return to previous versions. This is very important when testing and if you make mistakes.

Cons

  • User interface can be buggy at times.
  • The touch interface can be confusing and/or unintuitive.
  • Cost. AEM by itself is good, but needs some additional services (Analytics, Target) to really make it more effective.

  • The initial concept of how the pages work with sections can be tricky. Once you get into the system and start creating layouts and pages, it's becomes easier. You have to have some training and a good period for learning.
  • There could be more drag and drop features.
  • Some menus are small and take a while to change the placement (i.e. updating navigation).

I'll continue to use this product for many years. Adobe is making it clear they are taking customer feedback seriously and there continues to be growing demand for Adobe CQ implementations. As a developer, I find that there is still lots of room in this platform to try new techniques and really keep our implementations up to par with the latest standards.

We have an in-house CMS that we are changing to. It handles section set up differently, but relies on a third-party for navigation. It's not as robust, but is still in development. There are some things that it handles in the same way (story creation, breaking news alerts, etc.), but will be a big change from the Clickablity platform.

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

Once you learn the system, it's pretty easy. Training is involved and not ever placement list is drag-and-drop.

I found that some agents were better then others, usually you have an account representative and that I would consider level 1 support. To get really complex answers you need to talk with an engineer.

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

Have a developer on staff to work with them, even if you are not designing your site yourself.

Alternatives Considered

It really comes down to how much money you are willing to spend (Adobe is more) and the skill set of your developers (Sitecore is .NET vs. Adobe is Java).

I have not used or evaluated any other similar products. The decision to select Clickability was made by the company. I believe the idea was to find a content management system that could help the company build and manage a robust website that could expand and grow. There's definitely an importance in finding a reliable product where employees could work remotely and quickly.
