What does a modular architecture mean for Composable Commerce?

 

Microservices and packaged business capabilities are modular components that can be independently deployed, updated and scaled. They are the “building blocks” of composable commerce and will be adopted by 30% of organizations by 2024 (Gartner).

 

 

 

 

 

Accelerate time-to-innovation and future proof your application

 

Uniqueness at speed
Unlike heavy full-stack applications, API-driven microservices help you launch commerce solutions in days to weeks, rather than months to years. Rapidly roll out new features, adapt to change and explore greenfield projects without new technical debt.
Best-of-Breed
Your platform, your way.
Pick and choose the modular components best suited to your unique requirements and roadmap. Composable commerce ensures you’re never locked into any single vendor.
No "Replatforming"
Want a change?
Swap components in and out only as needed. Stay up-to-date without ever enduring a rip-and-replace replatform or full-stack upgrade again.

Why Modern Commerce is Modular

Increased demand
Stay live, stay fast

Modular components individually deployed to a public cloud scale independently --indefinitely. A spike in demand for one component won’t slow or take down the entire experience. Unlike a monolith that must scale as a whole, a composable application scales efficiently (and cost-effectively).

Curbside Pick up
Commerce-enable any touchpoint

Quickly roll out new experiences like mobile self-checkout, curbside pickup or voice-enabled chatbots--even if you’re still on your monolith. API-driven, modular services can be hooked back into your legacy system until you’ve fully migrated to composable architecture.

Support complex business requirements

Modular components can be reused across projects, channels and touchpoints. 

For example you can can power multiple storefronts with the same catalog service, cart and checkout can be embedded in a wide rang of content and experiences and data and logic can be shared and consistently maintained across touchpoints and channels.
