How does an eCommerce Platform work?
The traditional way
Traditionally, eCommerce platforms were built in a monolithic way. Front-end and Back-end were one big software system, which made it not very easy to maintain and update. In later phases, the software vendor has put an API layer on top of the existing monolithic architecture.
This brings some benefits but is not really competitive to a modern eCommerce platform archtitecture.
