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

Kapost

I think the filters within the custom fields and custom details is its strongest feature for us. So I would say, the more content you have, the more use you'll get out of Kapost, especially if you need to organize your content in a lot of different ways (as we do for our targeted marketing). We still format edit/publish blogs via WordPress (although we put the draft in Kapost), but blogs aren't necessarily our #1 thing. Perhaps, for people who are really blog-centric, another platform may be better. Kapost is really good, I think, for copy that has a lot of hands on it, and can really benefit from well-structured work flows and a really comprehensive metadata system.

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

  • Sets you up with a strategist. You are able to be in constant communication through Kapost with your strategist and send one another working proofs and comments.
  • Unity - it has made all our email campaigns have a similar look and feel. Kapost has shown results on the appropriate amount of images to use and the type of language that works.
  • Stay on track - each person is notified when the role before theirs is complete so they know when it is their turn to act upon something.

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.

  • There are improvements that could be made to the insights component of Kapost. It would be helpful to have more custom ways to view the data.
  • Sometimes it's slow and there could be more links from section to section. I would like to be able to easily get back to the campaign page from each individual asset.
  • The platform could have stronger social media publishing options and better campaign tracking views, but we used other tools for those purposes.

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 don't foresee us making a change at this point, however, if a competitive product were available that had the content and workflow capabilities of Kapost, with added social media functionality we might be persuaded to try it

Usability

Adobe Experience Manager10.0
Based on 2 answers
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

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.

Kapost solves many project management aspects of creating marketing content. The automated workflows allow for faster setup of common assets and automatically remind team mates of deadlines and upcoming requests. It streamlines content creation. Hootsuite Enterprise was made specifically for social media and at the time of using these products, we were focused primarily on email marketing. Hootsuite is more user friendly and has an excellent customer serivce team in my personal experience

Return on Investment

  • Extreme flexibility and speed to publish new pages with as little as a few hours of notice. This allowed us to be more efficient in handling landing pages for lead generation.
  • Powerful technology stack that allows for an infinite amount of customization. New ideas came up as we learned all the capabilities of CQ. It helped us innovate in the way we build and author pages.
  • Poor documentation and small community slowed our initial ramp up and development times until first release. By now this should have improved with the increased popularity.

  • Increased visibility of a project's lifecycle.
  • Increased employee efficiency -- having all content in one place minimizes duplication of content already produced, increases access to materials, and keeps a project on deadline.
