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 believe that Jahia is best suited for companies where updating content online is not restricted to one or just a few people. If you own a small company/website, that does not need to change content, pages or promotions frequently then maybe Jahia will not be very useful for you.

Jahia

  • Its customization capabilities, Jahia does not disrupt creative autonomy as some of its competitors do. On the contrary, its modules and components are totally customizable, ensuring that you have your unique identity on the web without seeming similar or a "copy" of something already online.
  • The ease of use, Jahia is extremely simple and easy to use, even users without great experience will have no problem dealing with it thanks to its intuitive interface.
  • The technical support of Jahia is another strong point, service is always fast and enlightening, they really do their best to help in every way possible.

Cons

Adobe Experience Manager

  • 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.

Jahia

  • The price, Jahia should have a more attractive and aggressive price to help him become more popular.
  • Jahia cloud is still a bit basic and limited when compared to its competitors.
  • Little investment in marketing that along, with other flaws that I quoted (high price), keeps the community of users small and stagnant, making nonexistent exchange of information and experiences. It is somewhat contradictory that a service that helps in marketing their clients ends up not investing in their own marketing.

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 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

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

We selected Adobe CQ mostly for the ease of page authoring in brought to our non-technical staff. Powerful and simple UI widgets made it very simple for our merchandiser to create, edit and publish new pages. It also allowed us to customize those widgets to fit their needs while keeping the same clean experience. We also saw a plus in the ability to run activation workflows based on our own organization hierarchy, which helped make sure the right pages were exposed to the right eyes before going live. Overall, it was the mixture of user-friendliness of the authoring interface with the robustness of the technology stack that convinced us to go with CQ.

Liferay is a good product with a broad community and a strong integration capability but a weak contribution interface and no website management easiness.Drupal is good for simple website needs, with a very large community and modules. But it's architecture is too unstable, from version to version, for long term selection and there is not much integration possibility for corporate IT requirements (banking for ex). Both lack in term of hot deployment and agility/industrialization. Adobe Experience Manager is a good product, but with much higher pricing; and so with lower ROI.

Return on Investment

Adobe Experience Manager

  • Our direct business landing pages have seen an increase in ROI since switching to Adobe Experience Manager.
  • Our non-direct pages have seen a severe drop-off in traffic and conversions since the switch to Adobe Experience Manager. The more creative, editorial-type content that used to be imperative to our site is now relegated to second tier. Just getting a "content hub" with this site was a beast of a project.
  • The overall efficiency of our web team has increased with bulk edits, so that they can make single updates and impact our multiple sites. This is a huge money-saver for team staffing.

  • Jahia provides marketing and other teams the ability to focus on developing their digital experience while not being at the mercy of IT objectives.
