In 2019, Adobe Experience Manager (AEM) saw a substantial increase in platform uptake, with BuiltWith now estimating there are around 18,700 websites using the platform globally.

One can assume this number is only set to increase, given Adobe’s purchase of the Magento platform. More recently, Adobe also moved the Experience Manager to be a cloud-native SaaS application – making the CMS “more scalable and secure for content management across organizations”. With uptake increasing and typical AEM implementations ranging from a few hundred thousand dollars for the license to $2 million-plus for the complete implementation, transitioning to this platform naturally inherits a lot of attention from C-suite and the wider business. This often comes with the expectation that such a substantial investment will yield improved results.
