About Adobe Experience Manager

One of the most popular CMS platforms among enterprise businesses, Adobe Experience Manager offers the full breadth of CMS capabilities in addition to eCommerce tools.

Website Creation With Adobe Experience Manager

Adobe Experience Manager is a proprietary platform built on an API code base. AEM is a component of Adobe Marketing Cloud–which comes with a number of additional digital marketing tools–but it is supportive of integrations via plugins or API connections. Preferred by enterprise-level clients, AEM's annual licensing costs are quite expensive. Adobe is supported by a strong internal development team which supports both the security and ongoing maintenance of the AEM system.

Managing Your Website With Adobe Experience Manager

Adobe Marketing Cloud, for which Adobe Experience Manager is a component, is a monolithic system that offers many other digital marketing systems. While many businesses find this beneficial, generally only enterprise-level businesses can properly utilize it, or afford it. Although supportive of developer-driven customization, Adobe Experience Manager offers a simple administrative experience.
