How to Plan For an Open Source Commerce Architecture
There are a number of commonly assumed solutions for ecommerce development issues; new platform, more tools, and/or custom software, but we have found these to be temporary and ultimately lead back to a re-platform in 3-5 years. Our experience has found that by taking an architecture first approach your commerce ecosystem is able to adapt and grow with your business.
In this open access, on-demand webinar, Becky Parisotto, Director of Business Development at Acro Media, aims to educate online retailers on how they can prepare themselves for open source architecture planning, how a typical consultation would work, and how the best solutions are 100% client focused.
