Adobe CQ is used by the entire organization for document reference and employee information and interaction.
  • Handles huge content
  • Well managed content management system, easy to create and use custom templates and components.
  • User friendly interface for authors and developers.
  • Huge support with responsible mutimedia implementation
  • Out of the box (OOTB) component customization should be more versatile. Many time extending/overlaying components are faster but tweaking OOTB components are cumbersome due to the way the jsps and code is handled.
  • Can increase performance with huge content.
Adobe CQ is a very good product for huge content and fast changing content.

Why Adobe AEM(CQ5)?

We are a services company, and implement Adobe AEM (CQ) for our customers.
  • Authoring instance of CQ is just awesome.
  • Great workflows
  • Flexibility to customize
  • Robust Architecture
  • Integration with third party tools
  • Better integration for Email, text campaigns
It's the best CMS solution if you can afford it. Key questions to ask would be:

  • Are you looking for a Portal, CMS, or both?
  • What are some of the challenges that you have with your current platform?
  • What are your expectations from the new product?
  • What is your budget?
  • What is your timeline?

We used Adobe CQ for a client who wanted to migrate away from their old CMS. It was a global site with more than 15 countries and 20 different languages. Adobe CQ allowed us to roll out different regions and languages of the site very quick and easy saving time and money which all business love.
  • Very easy to use and understand. Adobe CQ already has many components and a developer can build off these components or develop new ones.
  • Authoring content is a breeze. After a developer has completed a component all an author has to do is click and drag the component onto the page and start putting their content in.
  • Publishing content so the customers can see the content be done with a click of the button.
  • CRXDE is not a very good platform
  • If CQ had better out of the box multilingual support
  • The out of the box components are not customizable enough so we ended up having to override them
  • Environment kept crashing because it is such a memory hog
Adobe CQ is a CMS for a large site. I would not recommend this for smaller sites since there is so much Adobe CQ can do that the small site will never use. Key questions can include: How big is the site you are building for the customer? Is this a global site? How comfortable are you with Java since CQ is Java based.
