Today, there is hardly a provider that does not offer its software as a cloud version. SAP has been offering the former SAP Hybris as a cloud-based SaaS solution with the SAP Commerce Cloud for some time now.
To prevent misunderstandings, the following is a brief clarification
of the most important terms:
SAP Commerce Cloud is the name for SAP’s new software-as-a-service offering. It is not a cloud in the true sense of the word, such as the Amazon Cloud. The SAP Commerce Cloud is a complete e-commerce solution that integrates all the components required for the omnichannel business. The SAP Commerce Cloud is currently operated by SAP exclusively in the Microsoft Azure Cloud, but the roadmap also includes porting to the cloud solutions from Google and Amazon (AWS).
The build and deployment process has now been standardized and automated and can be performed by the customer or partner at any time. No SAP support is required in daily operations. Essentially, the Commerce Cloud focuses on the Self-Service Portal, which can be used to execute processes such as deployments, monitor systems and carry out all other necessary infrastructure work.
Migrating an e-commerce platform to the SAP Commerce Cloud is not an easy task, but it can be worthwhile due to many advantages. For more information and to get started today, download our whitepaper.
