Adobe Experience Manager is live at IBM!

I am a new AEM page built in the Solution template. Scroll down to learn about Project Afterburner's AEM go-live milestones and see how my components can easily be personalized.



A scalable, best in class, and future-forward digital experience

In just one year, AEM is live. The Adobe Afterburner project collaborated with the Digital Discipline to get to this milestone. Below you can learn all about Project Afterburner's AEM go-live milestone and how the Adobe platforms work together to create pages like me on

Learn about how the new process works, my fellow migrated pages, what makes me unique, and key tie-ins to IBM technology. 

Benefits of AEM

The AEM migration by the numbers 200 pages migrated

Over 200 Learn and Solution pages are live in AEM.

45 minutes to build a page

It takes an author anywhere between 30 and 90 minutes to build a page (I took only 45 minutes to build).

8 templates available

Though I was built on the Solution template, we have 8 new templates live for use in AEM.


Early benefits of AEM Faster, cheaper and more efficient globalization

Globalization happens immediately upon publish of the WW English page. Translation and globalization takes just 5 days as opposed to 14 in the current process. I have actually been translated to 6 languages in 7 locales!

Template testing results can be maximized

Templates like me create a standardized experience for our users-- and our Marketers. Plus they allow us to standardize positive experimentation results across the board.

SEO optimizations happen in the blink of an eye

SEO experts can revisit page optimizations and get changes to authors faster. This means we can improve our rank and get users to the information they seek without friction, all thanks to the new centralized process.

The technology

A behind the scenes look IBM technology at work My platform is hosted on Red Hat OpenShift with Kubernetes Service (ROKS). In fact, our new CMS became the first adopter of this new IBM OpenShift CMS offering. This new product offers AEM CMS on a highly secure, scalable, cloud-native containerized hosting platform. Plus Red Hat OpenShift is the centerpiece of IBM's hybrid cloud strategy. Read more about AEM on ROKS

Connected Assets and the DAM The Digital Asset Manager, aka the DAM, now hosts all images and PDFs formerly stored in Bynder and MAM, as well as Getty assets purchased via the IBM license. When building a page, AEM Authors can search DAM imagery through the Connected Assets widget, dragging and dropping images directly into the template. All of the images on this page are from the DAM. To find all image & documents assets in the DAM, any IBMer can access the Asset Library. DAM, that’s cool. View the Asset Library

How a page is created in AEM Creating a page in AEM is not only faster, but it is also easier. Standardized templates take the guesswork out of the process. Each template was tested, so its format resonates with users. Want to see how a page like me is created in AEM? Take our mini Flight School.  View in YourLearning
