Artificial intelligence (AI) is set to revolutionize every industry it touches and commerce is no different. So it's only natural that we've jumped in on the action by defining a GenAI (generative AI) enablement strategy, as well as by leveraging GenAI in our breakthrough offering, commercetools Foundry

GenAI at commercetools

commercetools is spearheading a pragmatic approach toward the application of AI, and by extension, GenAI, emphasizing practicality, meaningful impact and robust security measures. Far from just offering GenAI as a product, we position ourselves as a facilitator, committed to exploring and uncovering its full potential in a way that resonates with the real-world needs of businesses. Our growth strategy for GenAI lies in principles such as open access to information, robust APIs and cloud-native architecture, ensuring that the integration of GenAI remains seamless, scalable and secure.

Right now, our sights are set on accelerating implementation processes, with specific use cases including, code generation, interactive documentation and the development of plugins for sharing product catalogs. This hands-on, exploratory approach reflects our dedication to utilizing AI in a way that not only boosts efficiency but also elevates the functionality of our offerings. 

By concentrating on practical applications and meaningful advancements, we are positioning AI as a crucial part of our strategy, especially within the context of composable commerce, which provides the best foundation for the integration of GenAI.
