The Best CMS for SAP Commerce Cloud

Yes, that is correct. I have said this for IBM WebSphere Commerce, I have said this for SalesForce, and I will say it for SAP Commerce Cloud. Our SAP Hybris integration is just as advanced as our other eCommerce integrations and to show you, I have started to build a play list dedicated to demonstrating why CoreMedia is a great fit for SAP Hybris customers.

With over 200+ Customers and a 98% Renewal Rate, we must be doing something right. link

Being able to have complete control over product and content from a single user interface (CoreMedia Studio) is key. Watch these introductory videos and then stay up to date by subscribing to the channel as I create more videos about CoreMedia and SAP Commerce Cloud!

Dynamic Product and Content Collections

One of the things talked about at SAP CX Live conference this week in Orlando was product and content collections. While CoreMedia Studio lets you define static product and content widgets, it also supports rule driven product collections – or dynamic collections. This means, based on a rule you define, you can dynamically display products mixed with content.

HCL bought WebSphere Commerce, So what now?

It’s been almost five months since the announcement of HCL purchasing WebSphere Commerce from IBM(link). A lot of discussions have been had by the many brands and companies that use WebSphere Commerce to drive a lot of revenue from the e-Channel and more. The fact is, WebSphere Commerce isn’t going anywhere any time soon if ever. Every conversation I have had with anyone at HCL is they intend on investing in WebSphere Commerce and the team they are building is impressive and ready to take on the challenge.

The CoreMedia Commerce Hub

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:

What is meant by “headless plus”?

Headless content and headless commerce are gaining momentum at a rapid pace, more than I originally thought it would, to be frank. Technologies like GraphQL have begun to push the rendering responsibilities back to the client, ultimately minimizing bandwidth and server load.

We at CoreMedia use IntelliJ IDEA for our primary development tool in-house, it is very similar to Eclipse in many ways so if you are an Eclipse person the transition should be easy. There is GraphQL support in the IDEA IDE, you also have browser playgrounds like GraphiQL, and of course code generators like graphql-codegen.

Webinar: Headless not Brainless!

Going to headless doesn’t mean you sacrifice business users ability to control the site using friendly tooling, that would be brainless…

My brilliant colleague, Sebastian Büttner, a Solution Architect at CoreMedia and Timmo Köhler, a Managing Partner at bitgrip GmbH,  will be showing us the benefits of headless from both a developer and line of business point of view.

Why join the webinar?

Thrilled about the trending “headless topic” but you want to know what this actually means and how it is different from the traditional content management system? In this webinar, you will get the chance to get insight into a concrete customer case showcasing their success improving their search engine presence, making their product catalogue user and mobile friendly and much more. In a live demo we will show you how they implemented the project in a smart way.

I know this may be early for some East Coast people but I think it will be worth it and think about this, it won’t interrupt your busy schedule or you can just call into it from the treadmill. 🙂

Made Easy with CoreMedia: Image cropping and sizing

Are you tired of having to use multiple tools for image handling for your various channels (web, mobile, in-store, etc)? Look no further than CoreMedia Studio!

The problem with images are all of the different ways that image can be surfaced to customer facing devices. The image needs to be cropped and sized appropriately for all rendering options and controlling that could be cumbersome. Take a look at this video to see how easily you can adjust crops and immediately preview them across devices and channels in a Salesforce Commerce Cloud site.
