Sharper Image required a migration from their rigid monolith in order to successfully handle traffic peaks, accelerate release cycles, and operate in a truly agile manner. They also wanted the flexibility of a composable best-of-breed solution that would precisely fit their business needs.
We’re entering the mindset of being able to easily choose the technology and SaaS vendors we work with and what we can accomplish versus asking IT if something is possible and knowing it’s going to be difficult on an old system. The question becomes ‘When will we do this’ instead of just not being able to do it or discussing all of the challenges.

The ability to effortlessly scale during traffic peaks and with business growth, as well as the flexibility that headless commerce innately offers – that’s why Sharper Image chose commercetools for their backend. In the frontend, Sharper Image went with the Moovweb XDN platform, as well as a headless orchestration solution.
