commercetools Announces Integration of Its Microservices Commerce Platform into Adobe Experience CloudJanuary 17, 2018
commercetools, the leader in next-generation commerce software, today announced it is one of the first commerce platform vendors to integrate with Adobe’s new commerce microservices capabilities for Adobe Experience Cloud. This represents the next step in the companies’ collaboration launched less than a year ago. With its cloud-native, microservices architecture, the commercetools platform provides an optimal pairing for Adobe’s new commerce microservices capabilities.
The combination of Adobe’s commerce microservices capabilities plus commercetools’ commerce platform gives retailers and brands new degrees of flexibility and agility. Every customer touchpoint in-store or online – be it mobile, social, IoT, virtual/mixed reality – can be interactions of deeper engagement and enabled for commerce.
Featured in Adobe demonstrations at this week’s NRF show, the commercetools integration helps retailers bring their vision of seamless customer experiences to life faster – a core tenant in commercetools’ vision of faster innovation through rapid iteration. Many large retailers continue to struggle with monolithic, inflexible commerce platforms that are slow to modify and expensive to maintain. Meanwhile, innovative retailers have implemented agile microservices strategies to respond in hours to changing business conditions with the ability to capitalize on trending products, changes in inventory or flash sales.
Adobe’s commerce microservices are built on the Adobe Cloud Platform, giving developers the tools to quickly deploy and customize code, reducing development time from weeks to hours. Because the solution is version-less, customizations will continue to work as companies upgrade other systems.
"Working with Adobe, we are accelerating the adoption of a microservices-based approach to commerce, which is absolutely necessary to keep pace with the demands of today’s retail environment," said Arthur Lawida, president of commercetools Inc. "We have long evangelized a clear vision for how the speed and agility benefits of a cloud-based, microservices platform could disrupt the traditional commerce approach to overcome the inherent shortcomings of legacy commerce systems. The integration with Adobe furthers this vision, giving retailers a competitive edge via a commerce solution that exceeds consumer demands for an engaging, personalized and omnichannel experience."
"commercetools is on the forefront of the transformational shift to microservices," said Errol Denger, director of commerce strategy, Adobe. "The integration between commercetools and Adobe Experience Cloud will enable brands to quickly and easily deliver excellent omnichannel experiences to their customers."
To date, customers in the automotive, retail and fashion industries have selected the combination of commercetools and Adobe.
