Are you ready for the cloud?
For B2B and B2C businesses, eCommerce platforms leveraging the cloud provide new opportunities and challenges. The advantages include:
- overhead reduction
- on-demand scalability
- seamless upgrades
- pay per usage metrics
This is a radical shift in the commerce business. For IT professionals, it is not just a technical change, it is a mindset change. With this quick change, businesses using traditional, on-premise solutions worry about making the change. What are the risks with a cloud solution? How can my business prepare for this change?
Challenges with On-Premise eCommerce Platforms
Working with on-premise commerce solutions is challenging. Implementation can be very long and costly. Because platforms were designed before the advent of digital development, the architecture isn't developed for agility. Developers are consumed with a lot of maintenance and development tasks, that can be better focused on strategic initiatives.
Opportunities with Cloud eCommerce Solutions
Cloud-based solutions, like the Oracle software as a service Cloud Commerce, can relieve many of the traditional challenges. Commerce Cloud, specifically, consolidates technology into a single place, including:
- Single UI for features like A/B testing, Artificial Intelligence, Search Engine Optimization, and Content
- B2B and B2C experience on one platform
- Cost reduction
- Complexity reduction
- Single source of data
