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

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.

  • Uploading information can be time consuming but they are working on linking their platform to our ERP system.

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

I am only giving it a 9 because they are working on streamlining the uploading process to make things easier on our end - once this is complete I would most likely give it a 10!

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

AEM provides a better way to control user permissions which Content Marketer is lacking. Moreover, the ability to integrate with the Adobe Target product provides a wider range of audience segments that can be targeted besides the default author-targeted functionalities. It really helps create a custom user experience for a variety of users that might be looking for different things on the site (for example, doctors vs. patients etc.).

Continex was a microsite and many of our accounts wanted to stay consistent throughout their site which this would not let them do. Salsify allows them to use our assets but in their own template so everyone is happy!

Return on Investment

  • Positive: Can quickly create and launch marketing campaigns.
  • Negative: Can be expensive to develop custom AEM experiences.

  • Many of our retailers website look 1,000 times better and they are extremely happy with the ease of using this product.
  • We do not have exact ROI numbers but the overall online shopping experience for consumers has drastically improved.
