In Information Technology, no software stands and plays alone for a long time. There are number of new technologies coming these days, getting popular, well noticed by customers / clients. But after some time, a day comes where these technologies are dominated by other technologies.

Coming to the Content Management Systems, there are many niche players like EMC, Oracle, etc. And Adobe joined them by redesigning Communique 4. It has released ADOBE DAY CQ5, basing on Communiqué 4. ADOBE DAY CQ5 is a new WEB EXPERIENCE MANAGEMENT SYSTEM.

What is Adobe Experience Manager?

Adobe Experience Manager helps you organize and manage the delivery of creative assets and other content across your digital marketing channels, including web, mobile, email, communities, and video.
