Adobe Experience Manager

Adobe Experience Manager is well suited for businesses with a lot of information or depth, or businesses that must manage multiple websites simultaneously. I picture this being a great tool for insurance companies, financial communities, etc. I do not believe it is well suited to more creative businesses. Despite images of Illustrator of Photoshop that you may conjure when you hear Adobe, Adobe Experience Manager is ill-suited to the kinds of creatives who thrive with those types of programs.

Magento Commerce Cloud (formerly Magento)

Magento Commerce Cloud works great for us, an ecommerce company. Any other company (of decent size) should consider Magento. They offer many features right out of the box and allow a ton of customization as well as easy integration with third party vendors. I could imagine that if you were a smaller company, Magento would likely be overkill for your online store.

Pros

Adobe Experience Manager

  • AEM is great for customization. Web Dev builds the parts and authors use what they need.
  • Branding can be ensured with the ability to require brand colors, fonts, and styles.
  • It's easy to see who has built, modified, and published pages. It makes tracking changes very convenient.

Magento Commerce Cloud (formerly Magento)

  • Magento Commerce Cloud allows us to develop our own custom solutions for problems that we need solved.
  • Magento Commerce Cloud can also be integrated with many of the third part vendors that we use. This has made many implementations go very smoothly and tends to be much quicker than developing our own custom solution.
  • There are many features available right out of the box. Many of them we have not implemented yet, but it is great to have them available to us when we are ready.

Cons

Adobe Experience Manager

  • In Touch UI interface the authoring dialogue can not be expanded which prompts the user to scroll when authoring and makes it a cumbersome user experience.
  • Moving the page hierarchy within AEM structure is not intuitive.
  • Re-sizing of the assets often does not work as expected and the user needs to refresh the page before they see the final outcome.

  • The Magento admin is not as user-friendly has other e-commerce platforms, and this is why I never recommend it for smaller ecommerce stores.
  • You absolutely need a skilled developer to customize and extend Magento. A skilled developer can make Magento amazing, but if you're looking for a DIY website option, Magento will frustrate you.
  • Magento takes a lot of server resources, so you will not be able to run on it a shared hosting account. You will need a dedicated server for it.

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

As a professional services firm, we've selected Magento as a platform for which we are an implementation partner. Based on our experience over the last 4-5 years we will continue as a partner with them.

Usability

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

Magento offers lots of templates and themes to customize the look and feel of the store, and even optimize it for mobile phones. The have an extensive library of forms and templates.

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

I wasn't involved in the purchase of Magento but I have used Shopify and Woo Commerce in the past and they are, in my opinion, far easier to use. You can get started very quickly and set up your store without the need of a dedicated developer. If I were involved in the purchasing process (even if to just give an opinion), I would have not recommended going this route and would have preferred to manage it all in-house with our more limited resources and getting an easier-to-use platform instead

Return on Investment

Adobe Experience Manager

  • A few clients see no ROI but few are heavily dependent and align on it.. Mixed reviews from clients

  • We've spent a lot of money on the resources used on IT for even simple tasks.
  • We are able to create promotions applied to all products, this has helped increase revenue a bit, our last application did not have it.
  • More robust reporting is a requirement from most business, this eventually affects our ROI.
