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.

NVU

NVU is an easy self explanatory program that helps us edit the Landing Pages for the company for which I work. However, many of the features of being able to edit text & text boxes is out of date & very jumpy. I often have to rewrite sentences in order to fit better on a line because I can't adjust the text box without it messing up the entire Landing Page.

Pros

  • Allows non-technical staff to author and publish content by focusing on the content itself and the needs of a given campaign instead of technical implementations.
  • Content workflows allow varying degrees of complexity for content review and quality assurance before providing approvals on any piece before going live.
  • Development teams can build very robust and complex component for handling virtually all posible needs: from integrating back-end web services to UI Widgets for content authoring; from multisite suites to multi-language components, CQ can handle it all thanks to the power of Java and the flexibility of Sling and JCR.
  • Easy to scale for high-traffic sites and thanks to the Publisher/Dispatcher infrastructure, very flexible for caching and load balancing.

  • It allows me to easily create the Landing Pages for my company. I can easily create a copy of an NVU file & then rename it in order to create a new file. Then once I've made the necessary changes to the new file, I just drag & drop the new file into our backend to automatically upload to our site.
  • It allows me to edit text fairly easily. I can drag & drop the text within a text box.

Cons

  • Adding meta data to batch files would make it much more efficient
  • You still need to convert any Word or Excel docs to PDFs if this was on auto when you have multiple files, it would also save time

  • I can't widen a text box without it jumping & messing up the entire Landing Page.
  • I can't drag text from one text box into another.
  • The text settings change if I don't copy a word that already exists in a word box & paste it into the new line of text before starting to type a new sentence.
  • Sometimes I try to open a Landing Page to edit it & it says that NVU is unavailable & I have to close the program & try again.

Likelihood to Renew

Based on 5 answers
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

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

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.

  • I think my boss has actually decided to stop using NVU to create & edit our webpages because of it's lack of updates & features for editing text.
  • It takes me a lot of time trying to adjust text boxes to get them to fit on the Landing Page correctly with the entire desired content.
