Adobe Experience Manager

CQ is best suited for multi-site projects that require frequent updates or new pages spun up very quickly and with the same quality as the rest of your site. It's also a great fit if you have extensive media libraries: pictures, videos, etc. The Digital Asset Manager is very powerful and if it's coupled with a CDN, it can be itself a great solution for that particular purpose alone.Key questions to ask would be:- How comfortable will our authors be with this publishing platform? What are their needs and wants? Can CQ accommodate them?- How skilled is our development team to take a project like CQ? The best of CQ comes when is customized but it will come with a price. Time and talent will be necessary to tweak it to the right fit.- Do we have enough time and resources to allow our technical and non-technical stuff to learn? Can we afford all the oficial training levels?

Oracle Content Marketing

In an organization where there's brand communication and this is a vital part, OCM can definitely help maintain/manage/analyze all the content that is being created by all of your editors. Next to this, the workflow system allows for a good ease of use, and maintains visibility of the approval flow

  • Workflows are a functionality in OCM making sure that the approval is given by the right person in the right job before it's on it's way to the next step and in the end, publishing!
  • Template functionality in OCM allows for easy copying and adjusting, allowing you to re-use best practices quickly!

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.

Easy to use, and supporting several permutations, the CM suite is an excellent solution for a mid to large size business. It's meant to be used by a team, and the functionality can work across websites and landing pages. There's also the high benefit of translation management, providing support for localized products.

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

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

Don't forget about customer service once you have a closed the sale with a customer. Oracle seemed to not care about our needs/timeline after we gave them our Purchase Order

Alternatives Considered

I've done numerous implementations using WordPress (a free open source CMS that many medium sized companies are leveraging) and found that it's really awkward for non-technical users. Adobe CQ is a much more friendly piece of software for managing large and varied pieces of content. However, if you just want a corporate blog, WordPress will definitely fill your needs.

While OCM was a lot more money, they were able to prove to us that they are a much better solution to use and worth the extra cost. The reporting, capabilities along with the analytics that was easy to download was a big discussion factor for us.
