Forrester named hybris a leader in B2B eCommerce

 

hybrissoftware
 

hybris (An SAP company), the fastest growing eCommerce and Product Information Management software was named a leader in a study Forrester Wave Q4 2013 B2B Commerce Suites.
 

According Forrester customers are attracted to hybris for three key reasons:

 

  • More modern Java-based architecture than competitors
  • Same solution and code based Enterprise-class Product Content Management (PCM), sophisticated Order Management System (OMS) and advanded Web Content Management (WCM)
  • The flexibility of the “Framework.” ….

 

According the customers interviewed by Forrester: “hybris’ modern, service-orientated architecture makes it easy for developers to extend and customize the solution to cater to unique B2B requirements and process workflows.”
 

The report also states that the overall solution (presented below) built on single codebase, without any integrations needed between each other, is an advantage that competing solutions can not offer. Advanced Product Content Management (PCM), Order Management (OMS) and Web Content Management (WCM) create competitive advantage for hybris. In the Forrester, hybris is the only leading solution that is evaluated as a single solution, not separate parts in terms of solutions and licensing, which counts extensively in investment decisions.

Based on 10 complex hybris-implementations by Smilehouse, all these advantages can be seen by the customers as substantial cost savings compared to competing solutions. The implementation process, further development and maintenance are more cost efficient and the time-to-markets in remarkably faster. In many cases, hybris has also replaced old systems, creating further optimization of processes and cost saving. Moreover, the scalability and modularity of the hybris platform has been well taken by our customers.
 

Smilehouse is one of the leading hybris-vendor in Nordic and has been awarded by hybris as a Gold Partner, the Sales Partner of the Year and the Preferred European Partner. During 14 years of 100% focus on eCommerce and PIM, Smilehouse has the best expertise in Finland to deliver complex international B2B and B2C projects, and integrate these solutions to different back end systems.
