CoreMedia named 2016 IBM Beacon Award Finalist for Outstanding Commerce Solution

IBM Award Recognizes CoreMedia LiveContext for Demonstrating Proven Results for e-Commerce Customers


SAN FRANCISCO, February 18, 2016 - CoreMedia, a leading digital experience (DX) company, has been named a 2016 IBM Beacon Award Finalist for Outstanding Commerce Solution. The Beacon Awards, IBM's premier award program, are exclusively for IBM Business Partners and are designed to honor excellence and innovation across a broad range of solution areas.

The company was selected based on the success of CoreMedia LiveContext, a flexible content and digital asset management solution that augments the capabilities of existing e-Commerce systems with visually engaging experiences and immersive content. CoreMedia LiveContext is tightly integrated with IBM WebSphere Commerce and is the result of the close collaboration with the IBM product teams.

“It’s a significant honor to be recognized as a Beacon award finalist, “ said Jochen Toppe, Vice President of Product Management. “CoreMedia is committed to helping our customers enhance their e-commerce environments to meet evolving shopper expectations. This award validates all of the hard work that we’ve done with the IBM WebSphere Commerceteam to transform the way clients and industries do business.”

CoreMedia LiveContext provides seamless and real-time integration with existing product catalogs, pricing systems and front-end modules. The solution has been validated for both B2B and B2C use cases by IBM, providing unsurpassed capabilities for omni channel digital experience management to any client using the IBM WebSphere Commerce solution. And unlike some vendors, CoreMedia doesn’t force its customers to completely rebuild their existing site or recreate front-end business logic. Customers can build upon their existing investments without sacrificing years of effort or putting existing operations at risk.
