Likelihood to Recommend

Adobe Experience Manager

It is very well suited for large websites and clients with multiple properties where some data is shared. I would not recommend it for smaller websites as the overheard would be too much for small clients and basic websites.

M-Files

M-Files is well suited to retain your invoices, orders, employee information and more. With custom-designed fields for tagging, you have the option to input as much, or as little data you want.

Pros

  • Media library and asset management is simplified, separating storage and also allowing developers to manage the workflow of the publishing process.
  • No addition of API services are required, using the same requests and data access layer for both front end and back end development simplifies the project lifecycle.
  • Duplicating code is easy, developers can simply copy components and reuse or rework for each use case.

Cons

  • The move to the new interface for authoring is drastically different from the previous interface. Moving has been difficult.
  • Since it is so customizable, a talented web dev team is needed to make all the parts.
  • It is not easy to tell if the page is live or draft in the new interface.
  • Integration with non-Adobe marketing automation tools is very difficult.

  • More more more training docs!
  • M-Files is a paradigm shift, so wrapping your brain around how its storing metadata takes some getting used to.
  • Learning curve with advanced features (what product doesn't?).

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

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

Easy to use. simple. Does everything I need it to do. Makes my job easier and saves me much time in generating proposals. It helps me keep track of those proposals as well as being able to look up contact information on an account and contract agreements at the click of a button.

I noticed some lagging with the integration with Microsoft Office but not so much that I would not use it. It has gotten better with updates. to be fair the issues were when Office 2013 first came out.

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

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

I don't have much experience with competing products. The main thing that it was competing is just plain old file shares.

  • Ensures we're using best practices, including maximizing SEO and more, through check lists and evaluations/ratings.

  • Less paperwork (actually not at all). Increased efficiency - specialists doesn't have to spend their time to print out documents and walk accross the offices to collect signatures on the documents.
  • Aceess to information where and when it is necessary. No more time spent to search information.
  • Decision making based on information.
  • Less errors due to wrong document versions used.
