Commercetools is one of the world's leading and most flexible platforms enabling companies to build B2B, B2C and D2C powerful, highly customized digital commerce experiences tailored to the exact needs of enterprises’ businesses.
The commercetools’s true cloud-native, headless, API-first, multi-tenant SaaS platform - actually the global leader in Composable Commerce - supports enterprises to create Brand Value by empowering commerce teams to design unique and engaging digital commerce omnichannel experiences.
Founded in 2006 and built on modern MACH® principles (Microservice-based, API-first, Cloud-native and Headless) - of which it has been the strongest ambassador beyond a founder member - commercetools is the modern commerce platform providing brands with next-generation modular and agile architecture that delivers speed, agility, scalability and performances.
Named for the third year in a row, commercetools remains a Leader in Digital Commerce in the 2022 Gartner® Magic Quadrant™ and it is recognized as well in The Forrester Wave™ as Strong Performer in its B2C Commerce Solutions Wave (Q2 2022): “Commercetools has strengths in its product vision, performance against that vision, and execution roadmap, as it paves a new road with strong headless commerce to support both B2B and B2C use cases.”
Let’s discover why commercetools is considered the game-changing next generation commerce solution to fit the rapid business growth, for today and tomorrow.
In the modern digital landscape - where many brands are experiencing increasing challenges and issues with their monolithic full-stack structures - commercetools emerges as a disruptive technology.
By launching the first Headless Commerce solution (the term “headless commerce” itself has been coined by Dirk Hoeirg, CEO & Co-founder), commercetools has been designed to be a game changing modern commerce solution at the forefront of innovation: it basically delivers a decoupled, open environment enabling limitless commerce capabilities across all channels.
Some concrete examples of the disruptive Headless approach’s advantages?
Marketing departments are enabled to “own” the CX/UI layer or to quickly alter frontend elements without impacting operations on the backend. Creating campaigns and promotions, launching unique “customer experiences” on any frontend device (truly omnichannel), adding products or expanding into new markets are no longer limited possibilities. That’s why Headless is modern commerce, concretely driving the future.
Still not clear what a Headless Commerce is? Take a look at our dedicated insight.
commercetools is a founding member of the MACH® Alliance, an organization advocating for an open and best-of-breed enterprise tech ecosystem (MACH is an acronym standing for Microservices, API-first, Cloud-Native and Headless Commerce).
MACH technologies support a Composable Approach in which every component is pluggable, scalable, replaceable and can be continuously improved to meet ever-evolving digital business requirements through an agile development.
That’s why commercetools is truly connected with the concept of Composable Commerce, a building and managing eCommerce systems approach involving breaking down components into smaller, independent services that can be combined to create a customized solution, choosing and integrating the best-of-breed solutions for their specific needs (being them Search, PIM, DAM, CRM, OMS). Each of them can be developed independently and seamlessly integrated through APIs.
Created to provide a high level of control and agility for any business that wants to innovate rapidly, the modular environment granted by commercetools and a MACH architecture enables Brands to be nimble and to fastly innovative without compromising essential components, being delivered separately on a microservice architecture via APIs.
The adoption of an API-driven Composable Commerce architecture with the true-cloud, open-source, SaaS, and language-agnostic commercetools platform as the core commerce engine, enables brands and companies to transform their business becoming a flexible and sustainable digital first organization.
