Digital Experience with WebSphere Commerce

This year during the Digital Experience Conference the integration scenarios of Commerce Server has been a hot topic. When integrating with Commerce there are 3 suggested scenarios.

Some advantages of utilizing Digital Experience for the Commerce server include:

  • Single environment to author all content for either Portal or Commerce sites.
  • Includes both e-spots and full pages of content.
  • Can implement content approval workflows in WCM
  • Security provided by WCM so can restrict content to certain users.
  • In general, WCS content editors like the WCM authoring environment better.
