Adobe Experience Manager

It is well suited to put out traditional and informational intra/extranets where content editors create articles/posts; could even allow external users to contribute content, deliver your site to many channels. For example, aside from the traditional desktop site, there are AEM Publications and Mobile Apps.It's not meant to be used as a CRM, it is supposed to integrate with one. It's not meant to be used as some management system. For example in previous experience, a customer was using it to manage requests (i.e. a JIRA type of thing).

Very well suited when you want to test across multiple pages and / or run heavily targeted or segmented campaigns. Lots of out of the box capabilities, and they can help add the ability to do anything else. You can create reusable custom scripts for targeting or tracking. Ease of implementation is great, and as I mentioned, the campaign reporting is top notch. If you still want additional insight, you can tie it in to 3rd parties like ClickTale or Google Analytics.

Pros

  • User friendly interface is easy to learn for people that do not have a technical background and it is easy to train employees how to use it.
  • The flexibility of content management. The content hierarchy on the website is easily changeable because it allows the user to move things around at any stage of the content management process, before or after publishing.
  • The structure of the system in templates and components is very logical and easy to explain to the senior management and/or project sponsors.

Cons

  • 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.

  • Self service option may prove a little complex for those new to conversion optimisation
  • Internal dedicated conversion resource is required to get the most out of the tool

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

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

Personally, I find it quite easy to use. But for those members of our team who have little or no testing experience, it's been a bit more difficult. There's also training required for development teams in order to have your campaigns coded and set up in the most efficient way. Our developers have been able to do basic and intermediate tests with no difficulty, and they find the interface itself quite intuitive... it's just the extremely complex tests that require a bit more understanding.

They're very responsive, helpful, and respectful. From my perspective, they're a partner in our success - I always get the feeling that they care about what we're doing and helping us to succeed. Emails are usually answered quickly and I've never had to escalate an issue. The team is always willing to help us with anything we might need... I've had them on the phone with my entire dev team in more than one instance, helping to resolve tricky coding for complicated tests. Our dev team is in Manila, and they've also been very helpful in working with us on remote training which has been extremely helpful and also effective. When they're providing managed services, the communication is always excellent, and I've always appreciated the strategic support that they provide... they don't just execute on what I hand them, they make an effort to help us make it even better

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

I give it a 10 because the only issue we had was a result of not following the guidance we were given. Maxymiser provided a customized implementation guide for each site where we were adding the code. On our site implementations when we followed that guide to the letter, it was extremely fast and easy and has worked very well.

Alternatives Considered

AEM exceeds WordPress on customizability. It is the backbone for the many modules and APIs we need to run our business.
