It has been pretty widely known our eCommerce integrations with CoreMedia are very popular and in most cases a differentiating implementation advantage we have over our competitors. This isn’t by mistake or luck, but by design. Our LiveContext has been around for quite some time, we actually proved this out with WebSphere Commerce over four years ago – as seen in one of my earlier videos.
This LiveContext has been extended with a generic “hub client” component that then communicates with the various services (IBM, SAP Hybris, SalesForce, etc). With a base implementation we can then incorporate the service implementation for the specific commerce system, welcome, Commerce Hub. The base implementation is configured using Spring Boot which is then encapsulated in a Docker container. This makes DevOps and deployment a snap!
For a better description and demonstration of how this works, take a look at our DevCon 2019 video for Commerce Hub where Moritz Kleine talks about CoreMedia Commerce Hub:
