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.

SurveyMonkey

Survey Monkey is easy to use, which makes it a practical option for pretty much any occasion, regardless of who's using it - a manager, an analyst, an executive etc. The very intuitive interface makes it user-friendly enough for even the busiest person to set up a survey, customise it to their own specifications, send it over to the various stakeholders, track responses and report on those responses. I've also used it to send surveys to very large groups of people, so I can definitely say that Survey Monkey is easily scalable, whether you're building a survey for one person, ten people, or hundreds of people - or even if you're building multiple surveys at once (e.g. for A/B testing).

Pros

  • Manages web content with an intuitive WYSIWYG authoring experience.
  • Manages Digital Assets used by your website such as images, audio, documents, etc.
  • Creates an simple easy to use experience to generate web content. Centers all web content generation around the author.

  • Great reporting capabilities
  • No cost.

Cons

  • Components were introduced to reduce the development & authoring time by reusing them. With some clients, it worked very well because they had page structure and content like that. But if you have UI requirements that can not support component re-usability then your life will be difficult. You will end up creating more and more components in the hope that they will be utilized one day some where on some page... Although you can achieve re-usability by creating smaller customizable component but then again it will increase your development time. In a Nutshell, you will not save development time.
  • Osgi was a great concept. AEM Developer used to write the most of business logic in them but due to adaptation of micro-services, now everybody wants to implement business logic in there instead of AEM internal OSGi. If your architecture had micro services then power of Osgi is useless for you, you will just use 10-20% of it which will bring no big value.
  • License of AEM is super costly, not every organization can afford it. Once you have implemented AEM, it will be hard to get rid of it. Getting rid will mean another investment.
  • Like other products, AEM also releases new versions. Upgrades to new versions never happens smoothly. Means organization needs to spend more money to upgrade the servers.
  • You need a big infrastructure to deploy AEM server setup. Each setup needs at least 3 machines, one for author, one for publisher and one for dispatcher. This means spending more money on maintenance.
  • TouchUI is confusing sometimes for everyone i.e business, authors, developers.

  • I honestly cannot think of anything at this time.

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.

Although there are limitations, I haven't found a system that can compete with the price and overall functionality of SurveyMonkey.

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

Useability is one of SurveyMonkey's strong points. Made for the non-researcher to be successful at research.

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

Have used a handful of other content management systems, all of which tend to be either proprietary or freeware -- and the latter presents a security issue. Adobe Experience Manager is easily the most feature-rich content management system I have used, but more features sometimes comes with inconveniences -- taking longer to load when accessing remotely (times out on slow Internet connections), slower taxonomy tagging, etc. It is also the most well-supported system I have used; Adobe is more responsive than most if glitches happen or in response to changes in Google practices for SEO, etc

Honestly, they were pretty similar from the users perspective. I didn't see too much of a difference, which might have been different if I was more than a basic user.

Return on Investment

  • Increase employee efficiency
  • Complete control of content by marketing team
  • Great user experience

  • In my previous comments I mentioned that we measure our ROI for career fairs and outreach events we attend. They are extremely expensive so being able to have tangible data to reflect back on helps our team to be able to budget accordingly each quarter to know whether or not we should attend those events again.
