IBM WebSphere Commerce 9.0 – Greater Agility & Flexibility

By -

With rapidly changing markets and new competitive challenges, organizations need the agility and flexibility to transform how they engage customers across channels.

New Features

Microservices Approach
  • Modularize WebSphere Commerce into loosely coupled components called Microservices
  • Separated the storage search from the larger heavier transactional server which allows for better scaling of eCommerce platform with reduced TCO from minimizing regression testing for the various releases to the actual infrastructure requirements to run the store.
  • Upgrades can now be done in days. Think of something in the morning, and have it in front of your customers the same day.
Modular Architecture
  • IBM WebSphere Commerce V9 has a modular architecture, driving better scale with less overhead
  • Modularization simplifies platform management
    • Scale the service that requires more performance versus scaling the entire platform
    • Less dependency among teams and services allows for faster innovation
  • Externalized Customizations (xC) is a big deal
    • Separating extensions and customizations from the platform allows for quick upgrades, eliminating expensive testing cycles that significantly inhibit innovation


Microservices Approach
  • The docker feature in WebSphere Commerce makes it easy to create, deploy and run applications
  • It allows eCommerce professionals to package applications with all the parts it needs from the OS, libraries and dependencies and ship it out as one immutable package.
  • More time innovating, less time maintaining the platform
