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

Flight is perfectly set up for situations where you would like to hold your entire library of digital assets to have everything in one place but set up custom portals for specific areas of the brand or for client use to allow them only a certain portion of your asset library. If you have multiple terabytes of assets it may get a little speedy paying for more storage

  • The user experience is very intuitive and navigating to find what you need takes seconds.
  • Custom branding and narrowed portal experiences are game changers for our company.
  • The ease of user setup and navigation from day one is no match to our previous solution.

  • There is very little to complain about when using Flight. I would like to see a more robust brand opener page after sign in much like is seen on the custom portal landing pages.

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.

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

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

Adobe Experience Manager

Have used a handful of other content management systems, all of which tend to be either proprietary or freeware -- and the latter presents a security issue. Adobe Experience Manager is easily the most feature-rich content management system I have used, but more features sometimes comes with inconveniences -- taking longer to load when accessing remotely (times out on slow Internet connections), slower taxonomy tagging, etc. It is also the most well-supported system I have used; Adobe is more responsive than most if glitches happen or in response to changes in Google practices for SEO, etc

Flight had the right combination of features our company was looking for at price that couldn't be beat by the other companies that we were considering for implementation. Once Flight came into the picture with our search we realized we had found a winner. The implementation and customer service has been impeccable with helping us on board.

Return on Investment

Adobe Experience Manager

  • Great user experience

  • We are already seeing improved usage of this tool compared to our last due to the clean user interface and speed at which you can find and download the assets you.
  • With our previous outdated tool, we were paying double what we now pay for Flight. In my estimation, this platform is at least twice as good as what we were using before. With those two things considered we are definitely coming out ahead.
