Adobe Experience Manager

Adobe Experience Manager is well suited for large organizations that need a powerful, comprehensive and robust CMS to manage multiple websites/translations of websites. It is also well suited for those who need a CMS that is well integrated with other systems such as analytics, targeting and email marketing, or those who want some fancy add ons like Adobe smart tags or AI-enhanced capabilities.It is also an expensive product with a steep learning curve, so it is less appropriate for smaller companies/individuals or those that don't need an overly robust system that is integrated with other digital marketing tools. If you're looking for a more affordable solution that is easy to pick up and play, go with a more basic WordPress or Joomla type option.

It is expensive. It is warrented if your organization has a high volume of studies and is mature enough to do more than qualitative usability testing. On the other hand, if you find yourself doing many surveys (large or small), usability tests, etc. there is cost savings due to the recruiting cost being the only thing you pay for... by the way, you will have to figure out how the coordinate the recruiting, but UserZoom is so helpful with this process and I think recently they have made efforts to bring those solutions in house.

Pros

Adobe Experience Manager

  • Adobe Experience Manager keeps your content separate from your layout which allows for a lot of flexibility in how you display your content.
  • Adobe Experience Manager integrates really well with other Adobe products like Adobe Analytics.
  • Adobe Experience Manager 's drag and drop interface makes it fairly easy to utilize with minimal familiarity.

UserZoom

  • Offers a wide variety of testing types: Click Testing, Card Sorting, and Screen Recording.
  • Post-Test Reporting helps make sense of the pass/failure rate of certain tasks (and participants).
  • It is relatively easy to add and edit tasks for users.

Cons

Adobe Experience Manager

  • Upgrading and applying patches can be hit or miss - I recommend backups because of the potential to damage the existing infrastructure
  • Space management is an issue - every change or request takes up space that can be reclaimed, but only through a complicated procedure done through command prompts. There was no documentation for this on their site and we had to use a third party to create the procedure. It has to be run manually.
  • There isn't a good backup system, particularly one that can be scheduled to run reliably.

UserZoom

  • Though detailed, instructions can be a touch confusing.
  • Can be hard to use and not the most intuitive for a complete beginner
  • Interface a bit dated

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.

I'm actually trying to get a license for my current job at my current company (recently moved to a new company). I gave it this rating because I am about to go to our executive to ask that we purchase it! I know that there will be value because we are forecasting a high volume of research next year

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

It passes, but can be cumbersome for people not used to usability tools. As good as their application is, it can be a touch distracting navigating or guessing where things may be. With that said, UserZoom does most things well.

From my experience, the UserZoom team has really done a great job answering the limited questions we have given them thus far. I think the platform is popular enough that many of my questions have been answered by their help pages - or other online content with helpful tips and tricks. I think the community has done a nice job of providing end-user tutorials for those who are new to the platform.

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

Adobe Experience Manager

I think AEM is specific to the client's needs and is not necessarily comparable to all other platforms. However, when compared feature to feature I think AEM many times is a leader in the industry. While WordPress has progressed in the WYSIWYG interface it is not there still today and this is truly where AEM shines against all of the other CMS platforms.

Most comparative products that we've used/seen are in-house developed tools, data scientist-based research with a few other tools used in the process such as Validately. UserZoom is a nearly perfect tool as results are real-time, authentic and can capture real-experience results at scale. The increase in pricing came when so few purpose-built alternatives followed suit.

Return on Investment

Adobe Experience Manager

  • Our brand requires a high level of polish and crisp functionality. AEM provides that for us. We do look as good as possible and it reflects well on our brand.
  • We can product new pages rapidly with our modules and so we can keep our content fresh and relevant.
  • Our brand value has risen considerably since we polished our web properties with AEM.

  • Validate suspected usability issues by having users validate our hypotheses
  • Provide a starting point to build a usability testing department, part of the UX department
