Adobe Experience Manager

If you have a number of smaller parts of your organization that you want to maintain the same look & feel as the rest of the organization, it is easy to create a base site and then let them customize. Also, if you have contributors of content who are not involved in the web site maintenance - our professors, for example - they can enter the text on a basic page which is then incorporated through tagging

OU Campus

OU Campus is well suited for large organizations with multiple pages that should be updated by the content experts themselves. It is less appropriate if your marketing or communications team handles "all" of the website editing. OU Campus should be used if multiple (think 10 or more) editors will be used

Pros

  • One central location to manage all sites.
  • All assets can be easily accessed, managed, and published from one central location.
  • Easy for authors to create and publish content.

  • Assets are easily managed and can be edited independently of the page they exist on.
  • Version history is handled well. Allows for a comment section to note what changes have been made.
  • Dependency tags are perfect for media that is used in several places. Upload a photo once, use it in multiple places, edit the photo or its description in one place.

Cons

  • User interface can be buggy at times.
  • The touch interface can be confusing and/or unintuitive.
  • Cost. AEM by itself is good, but needs some additional services (Analytics, Target) to really make it more effective.

  • File structure was sometimes confusing; assets not filed intuitively.
  • Content migration didn't always flow across from old system to OUCampus seamlessly.

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

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

Ease of setup and use makes Adobe Experience Manager one of the best content management systems that is available in the market. The fact that the underlying frameworks are largely open source, helps in facilitating third party integrations more seamlessly. The default options available to the user are significantly larger than other CMS. Exercising control and workflow management is really simple and extremely powerful.

MUCH easier to use than other CMS systems. Quite intuitive. Pleasant interface. Reduces anxiety for beggining users of cms system, and supports stronger users comfortable doing more.

Return on Investment

  • As a developer, this question is a little difficult to answer, but all of our clients have been pleased with flexibility an Adobe CQ implementation gives them. Marketing teams can really shine and control their web presence without relying on slow tech teams to support them.

  • Increased content management efficiency.
