If you need a tool to manage a website, this is a good place to start. If you aren't ready for something of this caliber it might not be meant for your business. It's a stepping stone and you need to be ready to learn and it may require a bit more attention.

Pros

  • Tons of reporting tools
  • Easy to navigate
  • Multiple user profiles

  • Authoring Experience - it's easy to learn and understand. We frequently do demos and training sessions as part of our deliveries, and it resonates well with the teams.
  • Development Experience - we find that developers like working on Episerver, as it's almost considered a developer-first platform. Continuous releases, cool features and a solid code API makes it fun to work with.
  • Time to market - from project definition to project delivery, we manage to get there quicker on the average Episerver project compared to competing platforms.

Cons

  • Not everyone can navigate easily without training
  • Some reports can be fairly large and take lots of time to download

  • Best of Breed - focus has always been to be best of breed, rather than having lots of branded offerings like Sitecore. We're sensing that shifting slightly and Episerver is therefore suddenly less adaptive within an existing IT landscape. Acquisition of Optivo and Peerius is a great example, as it's now getting natively integrated, hence giving customers the impression that their existing Marketing Automation or Product Recommendation platforms (like Salesforce or Apptus e-Sales) aren't a great fit. Not an immediate observation, but more a thought on the direction applied currently.

The CMS has clearly had time to evolve as a tool but the digital commerce aspect is outdated and needs to be reviewed as it is not intuitive to the admins using it.

Fully understand what is OOTB feature of the platform before proceeding to develop. Then implement a customization of key features once you can prove they are working as OOTB to make them more user friendly and productive for the business. Eg pre order and e gift card

Alternatives Considered

More customization and ability to work with web designers make it an easy tool to manage projects and promote growth of your store front. It may not be as user friendly as others but it has more flexibility by far.

I did evaluate other products in addition to Episerver. The other finalist was Magento, which has a very robust cart and a large market share. I have used that platform in the past and overall had been happy with it's performance. I ultimately selected Episerver because it was .NET (versus PHP) and had very strong commerce and content components. Magento would have required an integration with another (second) platform to build out non-commerce content in the way that was necessary for the project's needs. Episerver had that out of the box. Plus Episerver's evolution and road map showed solid growth and innovation while at the same time Magento was well behind their plans to launch Magento 2.0 after already significant delays.
