Overall Satisfaction with Adobe CQ

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.
  • Better customer service
  • Better usuability
Adobe CQ is a very good product for huge content and fast changing content.
