Adobe Experience Manager

Adobe Experience Manager is great for managing a collection of sites in a manner that ensures all the sites are on-brand (adheres to an organization's image guidelines) and that also ensures that each individual site is not too rigid; the content on each site can still be customized to appeal to the intended audience.

It allows you to share and collaborate on documents and connect with more effectively with co-workers and stay tuned in what is going on within my organisation. It shares information that is easily compared to emailing something to everyone in my group. I can use see documents from other divisions that are helpful and would not be able to find on the company website.

Pros

Adobe Experience Manager

  • Adobe Experience Manager keeps your content separate from your layout which allows for a lot of flexibility in how you display your content.
  • Adobe Experience Manager integrates really well with other Adobe products like Adobe Analytics.
  • Adobe Experience Manager 's drag and drop interface makes it fairly easy to utilize with minimal familiarity.

Cons

Adobe Experience Manager

  • A decent amount of technical knowledge is needed to set up templates for sites.
  • The capabilities of the different kind of users don't align very well with the different roles/job functions at some organizations.

  • More features and widgets would be prefered for media related subjects.
  • Sometimes support can take ages to get back to you but the new company that purchased Jive is slowly improving the support infastructure.
  • Having a home page that has more options to control types of news or what pop ups on users would be great.

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.

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

It was very cumbersome to generate reports. Often I had to run several reports and then merge them offline to get what I needed.

Reporting granularity is also lacking

Uptime was OK. But there was one day that the system crashed for a whole day. Our company was unable to operate. And all the plugins to word/excel froze causing those systems to freeze.

Jive posted a statement to the media saying all customers were up, but we were not.

They did an OK job when I needed them. Except for the one day the system went down. Jive pointed the finger at the hosting company, and the hosting company pointed the finger at Jive. No reliable information came to us.

Implementation

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

If I did this over, I would hire out the implementation. They know the best practices and could have guided us to make an easier to use setup.

Alternatives Considered

Adobe Experience Manager

This was a C-Level decision.
Meghan Hays profile photo

Jive

Jive works more with how people actually work and not how admins think that people should work. For example, relying on a folksonomy of tagging instead of a restricted taxonomy is far more practical with how users actually search for content. By putting the power to the users, Jive allows the site to keep up with quickly changing companies and yet still be tailored to their culture and objectives.

Return on Investment

Adobe Experience Manager

  • AEM allows authors to push content live in a matter of minutes. This has greatly increased launch times for business.
  • Good integration with Adobe Marketing suite allows for analytics.
  • Poor documentation of the system proves a challenge for developers and administrators.
