Adobe Experience Manager

Adobe is an enterprise level software that is best suited for large amounts of web content. The entire web management experience is engineered around the author. It is a large solution with many capabilities readily available to you out of the box.

Oracle WebCenter Content

WebCenter Content is suitable for payables invoice processing for companies with a huge volume of paper invoices. 80% of data entry effort can be reduced.For small companies with less volume, WebCenter may not make sense. WebCenter is not perfect. It has some issues. We raised enhancement requests with Oracle, hopefully, Oracle will resolve them soon.

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.

  • Suppliers emailed scanned invoices to WebCenter as opposed to sending invoices via snail mail, which is paper intensive and slow. This alone reduced our Payables processing cycle time.
  • WebCenter Content can extract, categorize, index and organize data from invoice images. This reduces 80% of data entry effort. WebCenter Content has optical character recognition capability. It can match the invoice to the purchase order mentioned on the invoice image.
  • WebCenter content is tightly integrated with Oracle Payables. The scanned invoices can be accessed from payables on demand. Invoice approvers can view the scanned invoice before approving them.

Cons

  • Steep learning curve for both Authors and Developers when it comes to customized components and workflows.
  • Development community is small and somewhat closed. It keeps growing with the years as CQ becomes more popular, which is a good thing.
  • Expensive, both to purchase, train and certify. This makes it harder to learn unless companies are willing to spend thousands on official training.
Fernando Galeano profile photo
  • Any images in the emails sent by suppliers (supplier logos in the signature) are treated as invoices by WebCenter Content software.
  • We have an invoice with 4 lines and each line has its own project manager. Ideally, each invoice line should be sent for approval to respective project managers. However, WebCenter Business Process management was sending all the lines to all project managers.
  • The user experience of Oracle WebCenter Content can be drastically improved. It is not up to the mark.

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.

The challenges with converting to a completely new system create quite a barrier to switching to anything else. If we find another system that offers guaranteed improvements to the user interface -- as well as as a more coherent set of options for data interchanges with current and future enterprise data sources -- we would be more interested in swithing to that new product. Of course, the expense in purchasing competitor system, along with the costs of migrating all current content, along with retooling all existing workflows in place, would be carefully weighed against the benefits incurred from a switch-over.

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

We selected Adobe CQ mostly for the ease of page authoring in brought to our non-technical staff. Powerful and simple UI widgets made it very simple for our merchandiser to create, edit and publish new pages. It also allowed us to customize those widgets to fit their needs while keeping the same clean experience. We also saw a plus in the ability to run activation workflows based on our own organization hierarchy, which helped make sure the right pages were exposed to the right eyes before going live. Overall, it was the mixture of user-friendliness of the authoring interface with the robustness of the technology stack that convinced us to go with CQ.

We were looking for an automated invoice processing solution. As we are already on Oracle ERP, it made sense for us to go for Oracle Fusion payables with Oracle WebCenter Content. We have a good relationship with Oracle and Oracle promised us priority support during the time of implementation.

Return on Investment

  • A few clients see no ROI but few are heavily dependent and align on it.. Mixed reviews from clients

  • When integrated with a system like Biscom, WebCenter Content makes document capture, retention, and archiving much more efficient and cost-effective.
  • When integrated with a system like Siebel CRM, WebCenter Content makes communications with customers/leads more efficient.
  • Leveraging the robust content authoring capabilities has helped our web clients reduce the amount of involvement required of IT services during the normal course of web content authoring and management.
