More business is moving online and IBM has noticed, recenltly updating WebSphere Commerce to provide greater flexibility and scalability while reducing the total cost of ownership for implementation. Modularized into loosely coupled components (otherwise known as microservices), these new innovations remove the need of managing and tuning a singular application, resulting in greater customization opportunities.
Here are some of the highlights included in this latest update:
- Improved performance, agility, and scalability with Docker.
- Improved store presentation. Brands can additionally leverage the Watson Content Hub to manage and edit a variety of digital assets.
- Technology innovation that lowers total cost of ownership.
- And much more!
