Flexibility and agility are powerful catalysts for organizations that need to bridge the gulf between business users seeking rapid innovation and developers who need to maintain security, scalability, and performance.

The Elastic Path ecommerce framework has long attracted a cult following among agile developers who love our Extreme Flexibility™. We make extensive use of trusted open source projects, allowing our customers to deploy scalable, secure, and robust applications that are unique to each environment.

Extend without fear

Your mission is to provide commerce services that power unique, differentiated digital experiences. With conventional ecommerce frameworks, that’s a recipe for long nights and painful upgrades. Elastic Path makes your job easier by giving you the tools, methods, and features necessary to streamline extensions and upgrades. We’re obsessed with this, because we’re developers too.

Layered for Innovation

Future proof your architecture with proper decoupling of front-end experiences & touchpoints from core business logic and legacy back-end systems. Hypermedia REST APIs are utilized for north-bound integrations. JMS and event-based messaging is provided for south-bound integrations. Allow each layer to evolve independently, enabling your developers to focus on innovation and not years of code entanglement.

Rarely does the “one size fits all” approach yield the results required to build and grow a customer-obsessed business. A great ecommerce ecosystem should never be limited to just one vendor. That’s why we make it easy to connect Elastic Path to a wide range of third-party commercial and open source software.
