What is Adobe Experience Manager?

Adobe Experience Manager, part of Adobe Experience Cloud, combines digital asset management with the power of a content management system.

Adobe Experience Manager Sites is an AI-powered content management system built on a scalable, agile, and secure cloud-native foundation for creating and managing digital experiences across web, mobile, and emerging channels. Users can create content and manage updates with re-usable Content and Experience Fragments and deliver content using template-driven page authoring or a headless approach with GraphQL. Interactive WYSIWYG authoring of React- and Angular-based single-page applications (SPAs) is available using the JavaScript SDK. Experience Manager as a Cloud Service eliminates the need for version upgrades and scales within seconds to handle high traffic with guaranteed uptime SLAs of up to 99.99%.

Adobe Experience Manager Assets is a cloud-native digital asset management (DAM) system that enables the management of thousands of assets to create, manage, deliver, and optimize personalized experiences at scale. Users can create and share asset collections and connect to the DAM from within Creative Cloud apps using Adobe Asset Link. Assets uses AI and machine learning to automatically tag, crop, and manipulate images and video. It also offers rich media delivery, technology that automates the creation of unlimited variations of rich media from a single piece of content for various devices and bandwidths.

Additional Adobe Experience Manager applications that integrate with Experience Manager Sites and Experience Manager include Experience Manager Forms for responsive forms creation and Experience Manager Screens for digital signage.

I can’t even compare. You pay for what you get, and Adobe has a wealth of knowledge and features that separate it from its competitors. All their products easily integrate and support their ecosystem.

AEM provides a sustainable quality of work that goes long-lasting, and we don't need to worry about future updates as AEM gives time-to-time security, patch, and platform updates. Not only updates, AEM introduces new features every now and then, which not only encourage its users but also lets us pay a good amount for it as well; apart from customizing the website, AEM also provides us with community forums that facilitate and increase customer engagement. In AEM forums, we can also rank users, give them badges and promote them to put more content on the community.

Adobe Experience Manager proofs to be the right solution for large corporations with multiple business units and brands, since most of the functionalities are oriented to that. Other similar tools are more basic with regards to the available options and are also not that tightly integrated with the rest of tools from the Adobe Marketing Cloud.

eZ Platform was found to be open while having set template structure but the costs soon ramped up while scaling it to enterprise level, while integrating other platforms including a number of Adobe products proved difficult with compromises to be had along the way - Adobe Experience Manager offers key integrations natively.

Adobe Experience Manager is an enterprise digital marketing platform that has an edge over other CMS platforms in multiple ways 1. Easy content authoring 2. Pre-defined authoring and publishing workflows 3. In-built multi-site authoring 4. Support for multi-lingual websites.

WordPress has been there in the market for a while but the impact Adobe Experience Manager is creating is so much better. The way to understand the shift in trend can be seen in big companies migrating to Adobe Experience Manager. In comparison to WordPress, the Adobe Experience Manager has so much more to explore yet and that can be of so much more hope.

I've done numerous implementations using WordPress (a free open source CMS that many medium sized companies are leveraging) and found that it's really awkward for non-technical users. Adobe Experience Manager is a much more friendly piece of software for managing large and varied pieces of content. However, if you just want a corporate blog, WordPress will definitely fill your needs.

I personally have not used a product similar to AEM. I have used other CMS tools but they were implemented and used by my team exclusively to produce Email channel templates and forms. Ability to work across surfaces (web, app, iPad, mobile, internet of things) I think is fantastic. I love the fact that AEM does not differentiate between the type of asset/content - it can be a sales full marketing template or a plain text operational message.

Flawless management of digital assets and content supporting personalized content delivery. Seamless navigation and user experience on AEM platform WYSIWYG (What You See Is What You Get) editor makes AEM stands out from the crowd which is not available in the Drupal Headless CMS approach to delivering content seamlessly on different channels.

First of all, I would say the technological advancement it has. AEM consists of a comprehensive web content management system, including more marketing-friendly site templates, easy-to-use developer tools, and AI-powered content generation tools for [a] better customer experience. Second of all, it's a product of [the] Adobe family so we can easily integrate all the other Adobe services whenever we want to.

These two are very similar in their flexibility of differing types of files and uses. They both allow the website to be built upon a steady foundation and easily edited. I think Adobe is better due to the accessibility aspect and customer familiarity with the branding.

My company went with Adobe Experience Manager for 2 reasons, the first being cost. We had a type budget due to COVID, and this saved us money compared to 365 Command and API Defense - the other tools we were evaluating at the time. Secondly, this was a generally highly recommended tool that pushed us in this direction in the first place.

This tool was not very helpful. We switched to unbounce since Experience Manager was not a complete solution. Our team members have worked with several of these tools and found this one to be the least comprehensive.

We started with Wordpress and Hubspot and we outgrew both very quickly. Our landing pages transition from Hubspot into Marketo, but AEM's uptime was much better at the time and we moved everything to AEM. For what we wanted to do, there wasn't much out there that really could compare in breadth of functionality and alignment with design.

The main reason why we acquired Adobe Experience Manager with a lot of peace of mind is that it has very good recommendations from other people, we took the exhaustive task of investigating very well its operation, advantages and disadvantages and from all the descriptions we investigated, we came to the conclusion that it was what we needed. There were really many services that competed a lot with this platform but the best of all options was Adobe.

Adobe Experience Manager has more robust features than WordPress or Oracle. It also has powerful integrations with other Adobe products in the Experience Cloud and Creative Cloud, which make it a very comprehensive marketing tool solution. Its ability to handle communities of websites, live copy/translations, an in-depth taxonomy system, and reusable/scalable content, made it the choice for our organization. It also is kept up to date with annual releases and regular service packs, and is supported by a large and reputable company (Adobe).

Adobe Experience Manager was chosen by our procurement team over the alternatives we considered primarily because of its seamless integration with other Adobe solution, which we were already using.

I had no involvement in the selection process of Adobe Experience Manager, however, from a user experience point of view, I would recommend it over other CMS due to its ease of use, user friendliness, and clean appearance. You can look at the pages by listing, or by structure. This makes it so easy to find pages.

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.
