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

SAP Hybris

Hybris fits well into a large development organization and will need many disciplines to fully leverage. It should fit very well into SAP heavy environments and recent roadmaps indicate a tighter and tighter integration in the future. It would be a challenge for a smaller shop to cultivate the kind of knowledge diversity necessary. Getting the initial momentum may also be a challenge if you do not have a good implementation partner, at least in the early stages.

Pros

  • Manages web content with an intuitive WYSIWYG authoring experience.
  • Manages Digital Assets used by your website such as images, audio, documents, etc.
  • Creates an simple easy to use experience to generate web content. Centers all web content generation around the author.

Cons

  • The move to the new interface for authoring is drastically different from the previous interface. Moving has been difficult.
  • Since it is so customizable, a talented web dev team is needed to make all the parts.
  • It is not easy to tell if the page is live or draft in the new interface.
  • Integration with non-Adobe marketing automation tools is very difficult.

  • Promotion management is not flexible. It comes with a few out of the box promotions, but if you need to do something advanced you need to customize it.
  • Customization of the promotions is very painful.
  • The object-relational mapping framework (aka items.xml) is a bottleneck. It stores all meta-information in a database which causes migration problems. Hope they allow you to build a persistence layer with standard JPA.
  • It's difficult to get help from official support. Last time I had to file a ticket through teh SAP system which wasn't user-friendly.

If I had the choice to renew, I would. Adobe CQ is one of the better CMS's I've been able to use. It's well organized, fast and easy to use. Although it is a little high in price, the fact that it does a good job justifies the decision to renew

I truly enjoy leading Hybris development projects and participating in new feature development for the platform. I see huge potential for growth and hope to be instrumental in bringing Hybris to the bleeding edge of presentation layer technology.

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

Figuring out the CMS tools took some time. Supporting documentation is sparse.I also found the tools to be slow at times, making simple template edits an arduous process.

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

I give this an 8 instead of a 10 because in hindsight, while I am extremely happy with the platform and the things I've learned through my exposure to it, I also see so many areas for improvement in the outcome of my efforts. My advice to front end developers working with Hybris and/or the Java stack for the first time, is to not be intimidated by it. Question everything. Trust your intuition. Do not be afraid to refactor or completely replace something that appears integral to the platform if you see a clear benefit to doing so. It's much less far reaching than you think and the core system will not come crumbling to its knees if you make broad sweeping alterations. In fact, the energy you will expend to retool your site with a new framework will grow in tandem with the amount of time you spend hesitating, and at some point may become critical enough to force your hand while simultaneously becoming risky enough to destabilize your entire project delivery. If you don't like JQuery UI, punt it. If you don't care for the Blueprint CSS framework, burn it down. Making the strategic decision to adopt the toolset that best fits your organization from the very beginning will pay off in spades.

Alternatives Considered

AEM exceeds WordPress on customizability. It is the backbone for the many modules and APIs we need to run our business.

In my opinion, hybris has a better modular architecture, documentation, community support and there is an eCommerce as a Service solution (YaaS).

Return on Investment

  • Difficult to calculate ROI, which would likely only be measured by time savings and improved SEO.
  • Takes time, which lowers productivity, to get up and running smoothly when first adopted.
  • Ensures we're using best practices, including maximizing SEO and more, through check lists and evaluations/ratings.

  • It helps to set up a solid eCommerce solution really quick that allows business to start growing sooner.
  • It's a huge platform that includes legacy solutions. It's hard to find real experts who can customize the platform.
