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

I like the organized user interface/dashboard that WoodWing provides for their CDN solution. Being able to provide user access and control what they can do permissions wise makes the process very easy to manage. Managing a team of 5+ designers can get hectic at times and this helps solve that issue. The speed of the Elvis CDN servers were on par if not faster than the other CDN solution providers out there and our website load time went from 5.0 seconds to fully load down to 2.8 which was a drastic savings. I dislike the price point that they offer as there are cheaper CDN alternatives out there. Such as Cloudinary or even Amazon's AWS depending on your overall needs. The dashboard is not as easy or simplistic as other CDN alternatives but it does get the job done of delivering assets in a timely manner.

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.

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

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

After using Hybris I would love to go back to Adobe CQ. Although we didn't use CQ for an e-commerce it is a lot easier to use and understand compared to Hybris. Adobe CQ has better documentation to figure out how to use it than Hybris does and CQ also has a better UI.

Overall Elvis DAM is a great product although when you compare the solution to other providers of similiar asset CDNs such as Amazon's AWS, Rackspace CDN or Cloudinary it can get quite expensive. This is especially true if you have a team that is at the larger enterprise level in which case you are charged by the user.
