How will you benefit from a modular architecture?

Increased demand
Stay live & stay fast

Modular components are individually deployed to a public cloud  which means it can 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.

Support rapid changes with flexible development

A solid extensibility framework including webhooks and data extensions allows developers to quickly add capabilities to your backend, enhance front-end experiences, and configure standard commerce capabilities. This is critical for keeping your technology up-to-date with ever-evolving customer demands and market opportunities, with less time and money.
