So, What’s Next? – A Replacement for ATG Oracle Commerce
There are lot of different paths off of ATG Oracle Commerce. There isn’t, at least in my view, a single clear successor, nor have I seen a preponderance of retailers heading in any single direction.
For smaller retailers, or those with limited customization needs, multi-tenant SaaS ecommerce solutions can be good options. There is of course Oracle Commerce Cloud (OCC). Keeps you within the Oracle family, however I’m still not sold on the feature set. Shopify Plus has made significant moves upmarket into the enterprise space and is worth looking at. BigCommerce is an option as well.
For larger retailers there are a few options which are designed to provide commerce micro-services for a retailer’s headless commerce approach. CommerceTools has been getting some big clients lately. ElasticPath is another major player in the space and well worth looking at. Another option of course is to build a custom solution.
The best path forward will depend greatly on the individual company’s needs. If you are moving to, or considering moving to, another solution than those I have listed, I would love to hear from you.
