Can I get an overview of the relationship / differences between AEM Forms and AEM Sites?

Avatar

Level 1

My company is considering using AEM and I'm just doing some preliminary investigation. Do AEM Forms exist on AEM Sites as a like a plugin, can they be integrated together? My understanding so far is that AEM Sites is similar to Wordpress (CMS) but I'm a little unclear on what AEM Forms would be equivalent to.

 

Secondary question: Is there one master course offered that covers the whole gamut of AEM? I've only found a bunch of 'micro-courses' about specific topics offered so far. What would be the best approach for learning AEM if such a course doesn't exist?

Hi @canadian-developer ,

1. AEM Forms

The AEM Quickstart includes learning capabilities of AEM Forms, you have to install AEM Forms add-on packages. However, in addition, you need to purchase a license if you are installing the AEM Forms package in production. All development and test instances do not attract a license cost and are fully functional. So you are free to test out AEM Forms. The AEM Forms package itself does not require a separate license key as it is just a package installation into a licensed version of AEM. 

For more details about AEM Forms & Types please refer [0]

For AEM Forms Pricing please refer [1]

2. AEM (Adobe Experience Manager)

Well, I don't want to recapitulate about AEM, If you just google "What is AEM?" it throws you hundreds of result and Yes, as you said it's akin to Wordpress, Joomla, Drupal etc; with an broad additional features.

3. AEM Learning

There are plenty of official and unofficial sites from where you can learn more about AEM. Pasting here few links

Un-official:

@canadian-developer So AEM site and AEM forms are two different products , there is forms as a component in AEM sites but AEM Forms are much more advanced -dedicated to forms. You can use the Adobe solution portal for more and detailed info. https://solutionpartners.adobe.com/solution-partners.html
