To find the requested information about Adobe Experience Manager, we started our research by looking into the most recent annual report of the company as these reports usually contain information about product growth and usage aside from the basic financial information. However, we only found general information about Adobe Experience Manager from the company’s annual report. The only figures presented that is directly relevant to Adobe Experience Manager (AEM) is the revenue and year-over-year growth of its Digital Experience business segment, which Adobe Experience Manager belongs in.
Next, we looked into reports published by Adobe and other credible third-party publishers specifically about Adobe Experience Manager. The closest thing we found is a whitepaper published by IDC about the business value of AEM sites. However, this report also does not contain any of the requested information. Instead, it has statistics related to the growth of the websites that adopted AEM.
We changed strategy and looked into databases of usage statistics. Through this strategy, we found out that the company has a total number of 18,419 live websites globally and a market share of 0.99%. Information about the company’s gain and loss of customers was also found; however, these data are not specific to 2018, so we presented them as helpful findings above. Below were the calculations we made for these relevant findings:
Adobe Experience Manager gained a total of 5,774 customers from ten sites, and these are as follows: (A screenshot of this list has also been provided in the Google document attached.)
- Adobe CQ: 3,691 customers
- Google Search Appliance: 1,157 customers
- TYPO3: 190 customers
- Siteimprove: 142 customers
- Vignette OpenText: 154 customers
- Adobe Scene7: 130 customers
- Sitecore CMS: 113 customers
- dotCMS: 91 customers
- Liferay: 57 customers
- Kentico: 49 customers
- TOTAL: 3,691 + 1,157 + 190 + 142 + 154 + 130 + 113 + 91 + 57 + 49 = 5,774 customers
Adobe Experience Manager lost a total of 52 customers from three sites, and these are as follows:
- Progress Sitefinity: 50 customers
Another database presented other customer loss/gain figures, stating Adobe Experience Manager gained a total of 27,001 websites and lost 17,597 websites. However, these figures are from the past month, not for 2018.
We also looked into free marketing intelligence platforms to see if they have usage statistics information about AEM. Through this strategy, we found the revenue of the companies using this CMS. However, even after looking into several marketing intelligence platforms, we still could not find information about the number of customers who moved to and left AEM in 2018, the three-year growth trend of the product or data points to calculate it, and the B2B versus B2C ratio of its customers.
Lastly, we looked into press releases and media coverage for the hopes of any mention of AEM's user statistics; however, we still could not find any relevant or useful statistics. Most press releases and media coverage mentioning AEM were about Adobe's earnings call and AEM automating customer experience.
For the information we could not find (the number of customers who moved to and left AEM in 2018, the three-year growth trend of the product or data points to calculate it, and the B2B versus B2C ratio of its customers), we put N/A in the corresponding rows of the attached spreadsheet.
