Migration to Modern eCommerce

Successful business leaders today are focused on:

  • Connecting organizational systems
  • Accessing unified data sets
  • Automating manual processes
  • Reducing costs & expanding growth opportunities
  • Leveraging new technologies and innovative strategy

But legacy eCommerce technology often leaves you handcuffed. Overspending on maintenance and infrastructure (hosting, updates, upgrades, maintenance, integrations, innovations and more) is your reality. The operational overload of your systems requires intensive time and resources to maintain, innovate and evolve. And you’re likely unable to embrace new GTM models, be it B2C eCommerce, B2B eCommerce, D2C, marketplaces, or social commerce, to name a few.

eCommerce today needs to be able to live anywhere - across every channel, online and offline, enabling you to embrace new business models and go-to-market strategies as they emerge. 

Modern eCommerce is limitless. It’s flexible and scalable, and allows you to be agile and adapt, making innovations consistently. Modern eCommerce is composable commerce.

If your team is looking to future-proof your eCommerce strategy, it’s time to embrace composable commerce. 

What is composable commerce?

Composable commerce is a development approach of selecting best-of-breed commerce components and combining or ‘composing’ them into a custom application built for specific business needs.

A composable eCommerce strategy gives you the flexibility and scalability you need to create an eCommerce solution that fits your needs today, and as you grow tomorrow - no matter the size or complexity of your business.

Composable Commerce:

  • Eliminates the limitations of using basic out-of-the-box eCommerce capabilities
  • Delivers more control over the functionality and performance of your eCommerce experience
  • Enables seamless integration of various best-of-breed components, such as content management, product discovery, and payment processing, that enhance the eCommerce experience for your buyers
  • Makes constant innovation accessible so you can keep up with the evolving business landscape and changing customer demands

If your team is looking to:

  • Become more agile and flexible, taking advantage of headless eCommerce capabilities
  • Accelerate digital capabilities via powerful API-first technologies
  • Leverage existing investments in other back-end systems while you move to a more modern foundation
  • Gain confidence in your ability to deliver desired user experiences your customers are demand today and tomorrow via scalable, cloud-native capabilities

…then now is the time to migrate to composable commerce and take advantage of the benefits headless, API-first, cloud-native, MACH architected eCommerce delivers.
