Adobe Experience Manager

If the employees in charge of creating pages are not developers, this is a great platform since everything is easy and drag and drop style. For a developer, this might be more frustrating since small code tweaks are not as accessible.

OpenText MediaBin

If you want to share (or access) the most current version of any content MediaBin can be useful for ensuring that you are getting the right thing - assuming you can find it. Another useful functionality - OS sharing or exporting different file formats for a file. Often PDF works, but sometimes you need a file in a different image format and the software can allow that.

Pros

  • Provides instant access from anywhere with a web connection to content.
  • Enables development and use of large image repository that is well organized, promoting easy reuse and accessibility.
  • Accommodates near-real-time edits/changes; changes are reflected almost instantly, as soon as refreshed.
  • Adobe does a decent job of adding features and support, such as for new file formats (added PNG support, when previously only supported GIF and JPG).
  • User interface reminiscent of Microsoft Word, enabling fast customization.
  • Great way to add Cloud capabilities and content management to your workflow.
  • Easy to learn and use; learning curve minor.

  • Search is often a chellenge - using the file name or "item number" doesn't always bring up the expected results.
  • Navigation is not intuitive in places - finding different functions
  • The export function is powerful but not always clear, several options seem like the same thing. e.g. Do I need FTP ot HTTP download? Do I care?

We had and still have a fantastic experience using Adobe CQ. Lots of flexibility, great integration with other Adobe products we already use and a powerful technology make it a great fit for our corporate environment. Also as the community grows, it makes it easier to network with other developers and users to get new ideas on how to continue to get the best out of the software.

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

Alternatives Considered

Websphere is antiquated

I was not involved in the selection process but MediaBin seems to be more of a "repository" than a "file-folder" system. It also displays thumbnail previews of files making it useful for sorting through visual elements, like photos or PDFs. I am not certain how it compares with regard to version history.

Return on Investment

  • Increase employee efficiency
  • Complete control of content by marketing team
  • Great user experience
Nadia Sweeting, MS profile photo
  • This software is more of a tool that resides in the background, so it is difficult to measure ROI.
  • One negative impact is the challenges of managing access and thus limiting productivity when people can't access things.
  • Another negative impact is the poor search functionality reducing productivity in finding the correct files when needed.
