From Monolith Platform to Modern Commerce
Why Migrate? Why Now?
Recognized as a Leader by analysts Gartner and Forrester in the digital commerce space over a decade ago, Oracle has struggled to keep up with rapidly advancing technology. In its heyday, its flagship ATG platform (now known as Oracle Commerce) was considered best-in-class but as digital commerce evolved, the company elected to retire ATG in 2016, launching Oracle Commerce Cloud (OCC) as a new, modern solution.
For a variety of reasons, many ATG customers didn’t migrate to OCC. Most saw the offering as a fundamental change from a technology they understood and trusted — and felt OCC didn’t have the same focus on the enterprise market or leverage the significant investments of their existing platform.
To appease customers, Oracle continued to support ATG. However, in May 2022, that support was discontinued. While third-party support vendors exist, at this point, it’s clear to both ATG and OCC customers that it is time to switch to a modern, composable commerce solution — one that can help them create a competitive advantage today as well as in the future.

How to migrate from Oracle Commerce Cloud to commercetools
Though SaaS-based and API-friendly, Oracle Commerce Cloud (OCC) has limited customization options for brands that need to differentiate and remain competitive. With a tightly coupled backend and frontend, adding touchpoints and new features is difficult, making delivering an omnichannel experience almost impossible. To ensure you can remain competitive in the future, now is the time to migrate to a more modern solution.
Our step-by-step guide helps you understand the benefits of MACH architecture and composable commerce solutions as well as presents a phased migration strategy that will help you reduce replatforming costs, minimize development time and see results more quickly.
