I am very new to EPiServer. The company I work for is implementing epi CMS with Commerce and i am very interested in understanding what is achievable within the front-end cms editor and what type of change requires back-end code development?
We have an implementation partner who is building the first commerce site on our behalf from our requirements but then it is envisaged that we as a company will update and maintain the site.
Any information you have on the editor vs developer split would be much appriciated.
That depends on the implementation done by the implementation partner.
Nathan - As Tomas mentioned, it all depends on implementation done by the implementation partner. Normally implementation partners do training and on-boarding before Go-Live but it really depends on your contract.
Content editors (could be more than 1) edit content on cms
merchandiser create products and responsible of product prices/promotions etc (Although sometimes content editors help them to add content blocks on catalogue pages etc)
Administrtators : They are responsible of administering website. Schedule jobs, any tools, Site wide settings etc
Developers: Develop the code for further enhancements.
In practice above roles could be more and less depends on organization structure.
