I use it to manage content for websites and different devices.

2018-05-01

Pros

I can see my assets for website management and potential user devices, which makes me able to manage how people interact with my business.

Cons

There are a lot of aspects to the app, and a lot of data that can be managed, so it can be overwhelming if you don't take the time and care to organize everything very carefully.

Comprehensive CMS Solution

Excellent CMS solution

Pros

It is the FULL package for content management

Cons

It's a bit intimidating at first. There are a LOT of features and it can be hard to know where to start. It takes time, but well worth the investment.

An enterprise content manager that acts like visual studios

2016-12-09

Authors have a lot of freedom potential for settings, obviously depending on permissions. Their tag manager is also a great asset to our architects.

Pros

Tag manager, digital asset manager, and nontechnical admin abilities.

Cons

Permissions take a lot of effort to lock down and authors could potentially do prod damage.

Recommendations to others considering Adobe Experience Manager

We use this software by relying a lot on governance with authors. Make sure you have trustworthy authors or admins which should already be a given.

Experience Asset Management - You can count on !

2021-04-11

To set up an online business - this is one of the best tools which can be used since most businesses are now going online - I would highly recommend Adobe Experience Manager.

Pros

The Adobe experience manager is a must, especially the experience asset management which uses the Artificial Intelligence (AI) power to get the best results for your business.

Cons

However, once you start using it, it gets easier.

Working within AEM allowed for fast and effective publishing

2017-12-06

So much of the website could be updated with new content in a timely manor with a relatively small team managing the builds.

Pros

The templating options allowed our company to work within a standard set of page layouts that helped streamline the page builds and keep the site w/in brand standards.

Cons

From time to time some of the page templates seemed to be a bit buggy and not perform normal functionalities.

AEM isn't easy but it's a workhorse

2015-09-17

And although it's been a bumpy road, we are starting on our third large redesign with no regrets.

Pros

There are tools to help you get started, and the ability to create a template where our authors can just enter content without worrying about format is a blessing.

Cons

AEM is not an easy program to install or to administer, not if you are going to go beyond an all-in-one server.

Best User Friendly CMS Tool

2018-08-24

I have been using Adobe Experience Manager as a developer for almost 4 years now and every version out does itself. As a developer, I will be recommending AEM for everybody out there.

Pros

It's modular design, and it's ease of integration with both other Adobe products as well as other third party products makes it unique.

Cons

Nothing as of such. It's almost a near perfect product.

A very rich form development platform

2020-11-30

As an end-user (a business user) I had a positive experience as it was very straightforward to design rich forms.

Pros

It has many controls to be added to the form.

Cons

It does not seem it support containerization. I could not find good documents on how to create containers from AEM.

By far one of the easiest and best apps to make visual content / quote posts for social media with a wide range of free photos and styles.

Pros

It's almost too easy - what if people forget how to design?

Best content management and web development platform out there!

2021-07-16

Overall, AEM is a very powerful platform and probably the best one out there for building enterprise level responsive sites.

Pros

For web content authors, this is the best tool out there for creating a responsive website.

Cons

Basic authoring is simple but anything more requires a steep learning curve and the documentation and tutorials available are lacking

Another Solid Adobe Suite

2020-04-15

Pros

The tool was easy to use and help us find a standard tool for creating digital signatures on contracts and docs

Cons

doesn’t seem to work on mobile devices but could be our licensing.

For being an Author, you're as limited to the limitations of your developer.

2020-01-11

I believe your overall experience woudl depend on the team's willingness to keep up to date with all feature releases and understand it's capabilities, vs it's limitations.

Pros

The ability to rapidly create and maintain pages and the integration with Target makes for a great testing platform.

Cons

But when it comes to building out your website experience.. unless your UX designer and developer express creativity and can work around challenges and limitations, you may find yourself being only able to build pretty cookie cutter type web sites.

Wonderful invention with so many useful features

2019-12-03

In short Adobe Experience Manager allows me to properly organize all my digital assets into one specific location with an ability to view them accordingly.

Pros

I really like the way in which it helps me to drag and drop out files according to my wish within a single location.

Cons

All the superb features make it my best solution in this huge world of technology. So, I can’t think of any major drawbacks in it that makes it my most favorite.

Comprehensive content management solution for our websites, mobile apps and forms.

2018-05-31

Pros

Since my team is in different countries, this system allows multiple contributors to access and manage the content simultaneously.

Cons

Difficult at the beginning if you have no knowledge, you'll often have to figure out on your own and spend hours learning something. And also it can be a bit pricey for some small companies.
