vor 9 Monaten
Kommentare: Undoubtedly, SAP Commerce is the leader in eCommerce platforms. SAP has been doing a great investment in keeping this platform ahead of its competitors by bringing a lot of innovation required to meet the demands of fast-changing information technology and shopping trends of customers.
1. In terms of features, it is ahead of all of its competitors
2. It comes with accelerators (pre-built storefronts) that are almost production-ready which accelerates TTM (Time To Market).
3. It comes bundled with integration templates for many SAP products e.g. ERP, Marketing, CPQ, C4C etc.
4. This is built with open source technologies (e.g. Spring, Tomcat etc.) and therefore it is easy to find resources with relevant experience.
5. The documentation is rich, and from time to time, the engineering/marketing teams organize webinars, release feature videos, publish blogs etc.
Earlier they used to have a dedicated Q/A (Question/Answer) website called, experts.hybris.com and it was extremely popular among Hybris (SAP Commerce) developers. The contributions from experts were so strong that for most of the questions, developers used to get a solution within an hour. However, probably as part of the cost-cutting process, SAP migrated it to answers.sap.com which is not dedicated to Hybris (SAP Commerce) and also not as attractive as experts.hybris.com. Most of the experts stopped contributing immediately and some stopped doing so after a few weeks. Ever since this migration, Hybris (SAP Commerce) developers have been struggling for solutions. A simple proof is that more than 70% of Hybris (SAP Commerce) questions on answers.sap.com are unanswered for over a year. As a result, many developers have been switching to other platforms since this migration. SAP must be spending 10 times more money on the marketing of SAP Commerce than the amount of money needed to support the dedicated platform but it seems SAP will realize this when it will be already too late to repair the damage.
