Late last year, HCL announced that it would acquire various software products from IBM, including WebSphere Commerce. This announcement was met with a mix of reactions across the industry: surprise, panic, but most of all, uncertainty.
The acquisition finalized in July, and it’s time to clear the air and answer some of the most-asked questions from the commerce community, including:
- Why did HCL buy WebSphere Commerce?
- What’s the plan for the future of the technology?
- As a commerce customer, what should I do in the near term?
We got together with leaders across HCL to answer these and other commonly-asked questions.
As the WebSphere Commerce Partner of the Year in 2018 and 2019, Perficient Digital is a qualified commerce partner, committed to helping our customers understand how these types of industry changes impact their business.
