Brief introduction to all is given below.
The Manager is a web-application running in a web-browser that you, VividWorks'es customer uses to manage the content and configuration of the product offering and related functions. Other configuration and functionality will be available over time, including insights of your customer activities with the Planner and configuration of integrations plus other interesting features.
The Manager stores its data in the backend and thus utilizes the APIs of the backend during the product configuration.

All the data from the Manager and The Planner are stored in the backend. Backend provides APIs for the Manager, the Planner and APIs for integration with other IT systems like PIMs, ERPs, CRMs. If customer specific application logic is developed as part of the solution to you, your custom application functions will utilize the APIs for the functionality. Backend is also used to distribute the Planner and 3D asset files into CDN (Content Deliveyr Network), that caches the content to reduce latency and loading times of the planner to your customers. The backend is responsible also for authentication and authorization of the users of the Manager and is also used to store activity logs and other data that helps VividWorks support you as a customer.
