About the White Paper

Composable Commerce on the rise

While commerce suites have had a good run that lasted for over a decade, they have become increasingly irrelevant to serving modern-day commerce needs due to their monolithic internal architecture and legacy tech stacks. It had been in the making for a long time, but in just the last 3 years, the revolutionary changes that have occurred were finally reflected in analyst reports.

Unsurprisingly the balance of commerce market is shifting quickly towards distributed SaaS-based systems and modular architectures, recently described by analyst Gartner as "Composable Commerce". Looking forward, enterprises running commerce suites are well advised to revisit their strategies and plan on adopting this new architectural concept that is quickly becoming a staple in modern times.
