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

ManageWP

If you are a WordPress development shop, or host a number of WordPress websites, this is for you. Even if you only have one website but are looking for an easy way to make updates, schedule backups and keep track of the maintenance of your site, this would be a great tool. The cost is reasonable and it saves time, while adding peace of mind with "Safe" updates.

  • ManageWP could provide better support for WordPress Multisite with the ability to more easily manage individual Multisite properties.
  • ManageWP's security scan offering would be much more valuable if it allowed proactive measures to preemptively combat issues,

I'll continue to use this product for many years. Adobe is making it clear they are taking customer feedback seriously and there continues to be growing demand for Adobe CQ implementations. As a developer, I find that there is still lots of room in this platform to try new techniques and really keep our implementations up to par with the latest standards.

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

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

ManageWP is definitely the best in class product for WordPress website management. There are other tools such as InfiniteWP that do similar things, but don't have as complete an offering. Other options like WPEngine are also for hosting and we are not interested in that element. I think that ManageWP is the best tool out there for what it does.

Return on Investment

  • 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.

  • We have certainly reduced the hours it takes to keep our clients' websites up-to-date. We used to lose money on our hosting plans, but now they are profitable.
  • The time savings has freed up our dev team to focus on other projects, as well as internal initiatives.
