The Perfect Path to IBM WCS V9

The new version of WebSphere Commerce has been long anticipated. Significant architectural enhancements bring the platform into a new era, but also include a lot of challenges for those updating. What if you could protect yourself against current and future changes to the Watson Commerce store accelerators? What if you could deploy an easy-to-use new tool to control your most engaging marketing content? And what if this tool were so deeply integrated into Watson Commerce that you could deliver an iconic brand experience to your buyers on any channel or device that seamlessly blends content and commerce? With CoreMedia, you can do all of this and more.


Brands Must be Iconic

Brands need to provide immersive customer experiences that excite and convert to ensure success. So smart retailers and manufacturers are building online flagship stores and next-gen B2B sites that seamlessly integrate brand sites and online stores into a holistic experience. Standard digital experiences breed standard results: mediocre traffic, low conversion rates, decreasing revenues, and vanishing profits. To achieve superior results, you must offer superior online experiences.


A Platform for Success

WCS V9 uses microcontainer-based architecture built on Docker technology. This promises to provide significantly improved performance and flexibility, making it easier than ever to deploy in the cloud. IBM WCS V9 allows brands to extend WCS to deliver the superior experience customers demand. IBM WCS V9 is the perfect foundation for a truly best-of-breed Content + Commerce ecosystem. Strong integrations are your sharpest tool to provide the best of these two worlds to your team, enabling them to maximize their productivity and produce the content your business needs to differentiate.


Worried? Don't Be!

It's clear there are many advantages to upgrading to Watson Commerce version 9. However, this upgrade is not without its challenges. Upgrading to V9 can be time consuming and expensive, particularly for customers on older versions of the platform. Getting the most from this new architecture is a challenge as well. With content the key to success in digital commerce, how do you choose the right CMS? Does it have the enterprise-level features you need today and tomorrow? Fortunately, CoreMedia can not only help you migrate toIBM WCS V9 - we can help you get the most out of your implementation.
