Benefits of a Headless Commerce Platform
Becoming Composable — A Gartner® Trend Insight Report
“Composability makes change easier, faster, safer and thereby less costly. It is a model worth the investment for those that expect demand for change to continue to increase.”
How does a Headless Commerce Platform work?
The easy way
In the simplest and not really modern way, the software vendor has put an API layer on top of the existing eCommerce monolithic architecture.
This brings already benefits and this is indeed a de-coupling of front-end and back-end. But hand on heart, that is only half the story.
The Emporix Headless Commerce way
With Emporix, you get the most modern architecture.
Thanks to the API first architecture built by Emporix you benefit from maximum flexibility and consistency with any type of touch-point. This includes individual web customer experiences as well as mobile, text, social media, voice commerce, and connected devices.
Emporix’s cloud-native microservices enable agile development and short release cycles to implement innovations rapidly.
Composable Commerce gives the freedom to choose and combine best-of-breed services from different software vendors.
With Emporix, you choose a state-of-the-art Headless Commerce platform.
A really Modern Headless Commerce Software Architecture
To realise the full potential of a Headless Commerce platform, a really modern system needs to be built on microservices with APIs and follow these principles:
Stay fully extensible
The Emporix Headless Commerce platform based on microservices allows rapid development and continuous deployment. Test times can be reduced and the number of release cycles can be increased.
Small teams can work in parallel to enable your business for everything that may come in the future.
Save scarce developer resources
Focus your precious developer resources on what makes your business unique and use all standardized features from the Emporix Headless Commerce platform. Stop re-inventing the wheel. Consume core commerce capabilities stress-free from the software-as-a-service in the cloud and keep your IT lean.
Benefit from standard software
With Emporix, you can solve the “buy vs build” dilemma. The separation of front-end and back-end allows you to ensure that your own IP (Intellectual Property) is protected. At the same time, you will benefit from automatic and frequent updates for the standard software of the Headless Commerce platform.
A Composable Commerce Platform is not only Headless, it is also:
A true cloud native architecture means a lot more than just hosting your applications in the cloud. It means speed and agility.
Not just another word for Headless Commerce. API First allows effective integrations to both front-end and back-end technologies.
Microservice architecture is an architectural style that enables a level of agility and flexibility that wasn’t previously possible.
