Overall Satisfaction with Episerver Digital Commerce

It's used as a CMS platform for our public marketing and e-commerce websites. It is used by our consumer interactive group as well as e-commerce group. The number one problem it addresses was speed to make changes and roll out new content. Our previous systems were not efficient at allowing business users to author and publish content in a timely manner.
  • Allows developers to create a highly customized platform without getting in the way.
  • Pays a lot of attention to customer feedback, and rolls that into a product road map in relatively short timeframes.
  • Provides a good UI to author content, which is always difficult to keep up if you have an in-house system.
  • Tight coupling to database schema makes it difficult to deploy code with no downtime. This is on the product road map to fix, however.
  • The e-commerce portion of the product still has some older implementation frameworks, so functionality between CMS and commerce is not always consistent.

We have not yet had enough time with Episerver deployed live yet to determine this.
Episerver is a great platform for any team with .NET MVC experience. It is one of the few enterprise CMS/E-Commerce platforms that is truly .NET MVC. This allows your development team to take full advantage of all the latest .NET capabilities. It does a good job of being able to handle multi-tenancy, and many of the authoring tools are simple and make sense.

I can't think of any scenarios where it could not be successfully deployed.
