CoreMedia LiveContext Approved for IBM WebSphere Commerce and IBM Commerce on Cloud

Helps IBM WebSphere users deliver content-rich experiences for online shoppers

SAN FRANCISCO, May 18, 2016 — CoreMedia, a leading digital experience (DX) company, today announced that its CoreMedia LiveContext solution has achieved validation for both IBM WebSphere Commerce Version 8.0 and IBM Commerce on Cloud. These validations demonstrate CoreMedia’s ability to help IBM customers in both B2B and B2C environments deliver engaging digital shopping experiences that blend inspirational content with real-time product data. CoreMedia LiveContext also allows them to optimize the delivery of these experiences across any digital channel, site, language or region.

“This validation demonstrates our commitment to the IBM commerce ecosystem and shows that we have what it takes to meet IBM’s strict standards,” said Jochen Toppe, VP of Product Management at CoreMedia. “Our out-of-the-box, real-time integration ensures that our joint customers can deliver innovative shopping solutions in less time and with less risk - in both on-premise and hosted environments.”

e-Commerce strategies based on a “one-size-fits-all”, catalog-driven stores are no longer sufficient to attract and retain online shoppers. Tech savvy customers want and expect more as they search for and purchase the newest products through their always-on mobile devices. Working in close coordination with IBM, CoreMedia aims to transform traditional, transaction-based shopping sites into engaging, multi-channel customer experiences that inspire, inform and drive sales.
