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

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 does a good job recommending content that is related to the current story a user is on.
  • It does a good job not recommending content the user has already viewed.
  • It does a good job being a recommendation engine for disparate sites with related content.

Cons

  • Upgrading and applying patches can be hit or miss - I recommend backups because of the potential to damage the existing infrastructure
  • Space management is an issue - every change or request takes up space that can be reclaimed, but only through a complicated procedure done through command prompts. There was no documentation for this on their site and we had to use a third party to create the procedure. It has to be run manually.
  • There isn't a good backup system, particularly one that can be scheduled to run reliably.

  • If the content being recommended is not related to the current story we are seeing a smaller click through. This scenario can be turned or improved.

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

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

I think AEM is specific to the client's needs and is not necessarily comparable to all other platforms. However, when compared feature to feature I think AEM many times is a leader in the industry. While WordPress has progressed in the WYSIWYG interface it is not there still today and this is truly where AEM shines against all of the other CMS platforms.

It's the best. Our only other option was rolling out our own and LiftIgniter was easier to implement and performed better for related content.

Return on Investment

  • I am not involved in the acquisition part of AEM as the client was the one involved in that decision.

  • We have seen a better click through on recommended content after implementing LiftIgniter.
