More than half eComm platforms not fit for purpose in 12 months

There is no doubt that COVID-19 has brought the need for more flexible, adaptive commerce platforms readily shaped to deliver the best experiences across all channels into even sharper focus.

With this new urgency for digital transformation, Headless and Microservices appear to be ticking the right boxes. Today's IT and eCommerce leaders across UK agree. Our survey found that on average they'll be adopted in 7.4 months, if not already, with more than half IT & eCommerce leaders (57%) conceding that their current platforms will not be fit for purpose in 12 months's time. 

From monoliths to Microservices, this whitepaper looks at the bigger picture as well as the vital details, drawing on new, independent research to present a fresh perspective on Headless, Microservices, API-first and Cloud-native tech, and why and how your business should be approaching them.

THE FUTURE OF COMMERCE PLATFORMS - IN 3 PARTS:

1. From monoliths to Microservices, how did we get here?

We look at the history of commerce platforms, and the abundant appetite today for Microservices, Headless, API-first and Cloud-native technologies.

2. The survey - what IT & eCommerce leaders told us

Whilst there's a lot of press around Headless and Microservices, little of it is grounded in research. We put the hard questions to UK leaders to get the missing insight.

3. How to proceed if now is the time for the new tech

We recommend the steps to plot your adoption pathways, the concept of "Composite Commerce" and the risks of delaying (or non-) adoption.
