Making AEM and InDesign play nicely together

Adobe Experience Manager (AEM) is an enterprise-grade content management solution for building websites, mobile apps and forms. InDesign sets the global standard for print. Now, for the first time, Silicon Connector brings these two powerhouses together. Simply and automatically.



How does it work?

Silicon Connector seamlessly creates & maintains URL-based links to AEM assets. Just drag an image from AEM and drop it into InDesign, and Connector does the rest. This means that your entire InDesign team can work collaboratively with assets in the AEM DAM. The assets don’t move. They don’t get copied. They stay where needed, and whenever you update an asset in AEM, updated content propagates out to every InDesign document, automatically. You don’t have to do a thing: assets are instantly available to the entire team, wherever and whenever needed.


No, really... How does it work?

Under the hood, Silicon Connector is a very sophisticated InDesign plug-in that allows InDesign and Adobe Experience Manager to cooperate seamlessly on a deep level. It is the end result of years of engineering work and collaborative feedback from hundreds of customers around the world. What all this is this: Connector is very good at removing complexity from your InDesign workflow.

The fundamental benefit is deceptively simple: Connector enables you, within native InDesign, and AEM, to simply drag a graphic or other asset from AEM into an InDesign document, and place it there completely naturally. With Silicon technology in the background, Connector creates a direct and durable HTTP asset link between the InDesign and AEM worlds.
