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

Jahia

In my opinion, Jahia does good job supporting any static and landing pages, where content lives and is not updated on regular basis. However, blog type content or a multimedia would be harder to manage. I couldn't find Jahia's offered widgets to be working the way I would like them to. It seems like that side of the software is not very much supported

Pros

  • It is easy for people who are not web designers to achieve an attractive and useful website
  • It is easy to manage users and their permissions
  • It allows users to assemble their digital assets in one place, for use on the web site

  • It's flexible and accommodating from a page layout perspective
  • It works with other content production platforms like Bootstrap
  • It simultaneously supports multiple users

Cons

  • A lot of the OOB (Out Of the Box) components are still a little buggy and not fully ready to go without some minor tweaks.
  • Since the software was acquired not too long ago by Adobe, a lot of Adobe integrated solutions are not fully baked yet. That is getting better with time.

  • User interface not exactly informative at first glance
  • Lack of basic features such as multiple photo upload selection
  • It always reloads any page's updates to the top
  • Removes some pieces of html after "edit" refresh, like Bootstrap's icons
  • Edit's mode window size doesn't reflect actual size of a content column's width

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 would not use Jahia as it proved too complex for our needs and didn't help our over goal of customer satisfaction. Along with the man hours to build and execute, it wasn't worth the hassle

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

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

Jahia is flexible and customizable so it allows its users to develop different of pages. However, such work requires additional resources and expertise of third party professionals. Other products I used have been more self sufficient by providing a high range of tools, tutorials, forums and support. In Jahia it seems not to be very easy to move between this or that look or layout

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's secure
  • Helps to deliver a message or explains a product
  • It doesn't have direct impact on overall business objectives—it only supports those objectives
