Shift from legacy system to composable commerce

Forbytes helped the client move from the inflexible
monolithic system to easily maintainable composable commerce. We chose the best-of-breed ecommerce systems that are self-serving and require no development effort and integrated them composing a future-proof composable commerce architecture.

Client:

eCommerce enterprise

Product type:

Composable commerce architecture development

Location:

Sweden

Scope of the project

Our first task was to define the client’s needs, problems, and challenges. For this, we deeply studied the tools and systems they use, the goals these systems serve, the client’s expectations of the new architecture, and more. Besides, we figured out what systems and tools are the main for the client and what are the additional. We collected data on what the client wishes to change in their systems’ functioning, what they want to add, and what to improve.

3 project stages

The data collected in the previous step gave us an understanding of the business infrastructure the client operates in. Based on the insights we gained, our ecommerce engineers chose the team composition, estimated the expenses, and planned out the integration process. We suggested the optimal architecture design and made the list of ecommerce services that best suit client needs. After the client verified the budget, tool list, and timeline, we moved to the last step.

Project planning factors

After we considered the pros and cons of each ecommerce system and came up with the most effective ones, we integrated these services. Together, they constitute a composable commerce architecture that is flexible, efficient, and easy to maintain. As a result, the client got a composable ecommerce architecture consisting of a best-of-breed PIM system, CMS, ecommerce storefront, price system, ERP system, plus analytics service.

Composable Commerce

Challenge 1

The custom-built systems the client used required big maintenance expenses and ongoing support from the development team, which had a big impact on the client’s budget.

Solution

The off-the-shelf systems we chose are maintained and supported by the system vendors, meaning the client no longer has to maintain the development team or invest in the support and maintenance.

Challenge 2

It usually took months to years for the client to introduce new features, make changes, or upgrade their ecommerce systems. This resulted in slower time-to-market and harmed the operation efficiency.

Solution

Instead of investing money and then waiting for months for the project’s delivery, the client can pay for the features and functions they need and access them instantly by selecting a suitable ecommerce tool provider.

Challenge 3

The client lacked flexibility in their monolithic architecture and struggled with removing, changing, or adding new components as changes in one component affected the performance of the whole system.

Solution

By moving to composable commerce architecture, the client can add, remove, and change the tools, expand their ecommerce infrastructure, and ensure the smooth functioning of all independent components.

Challenge 4

When shifting from one approach to another, the client found it hard to find the right tools that would be secure, compatible, and performant and wouldn’t damage the rest of the system.

Solution

Our experience in ecommerce development helped us find the intuitive and easy-to-use tools that are recognized on the market and are known for their supreme security and wide compatibility.

How We Add Value

Consulting expertise

In contrast to other types of ecommerce development projects, composable commerce architecture development requires profound consulting skills. It’s the consulting stage that determines how successful the project will be. Here at Forbytes, we carefully plan out the consulting process and conduct both tech and non-tech investigations of the client’s needs.

Experience in ecommerce integrations

Defining how the systems will be connected and ensuring their integrity is one of the most important tasks on composable commerce projects. Forbytes engineers possess both hard and soft skills required for building the integration platforms, integrating the systems, and ensuring their compatibility in the needed aspects.

Knowledge of mach

MACH stands for Microservices, API-first, Cloud-native, and Headless. It’s one of the novel approaches to architecture development that helps create future-proof and consistent ecommerce infrastructures. With the knowledge of MACH, we create a genuinely open modular environment for our clients, improving the speed with no risk.

Short learning curve

As a full-cycle development partner, we guided our client’s team through the learning process on how to use the new ecommerce systems and tools. The toolkits we compose are always easy to use and intuitive and typically pose no challenge for a team in terms of usability. Though, we will eagerly assist your team with overcoming challenges if any.

About the client

Our client is one of the leading stores of online furniture and interior design in the Nordics. As a big ecommerce enterprise, the client runs and manages multiple custom-built ecommerce services, each requiring support and maintenance effort from their team. To optimize their expenses and achieve more efficiency, the client decided to move from a monolithic system to a composable commerce architecture.
