How Composable Commerce is Playing a Key Role in SiteOne’s Digital Transformation
The pace of change in retail, always swift, accelerated to a blur over the past several years — and shows little sign of slowing down. In areas from supply chain to customer touch points, retailers have come to prize tech stacks that maximize flexibility and agility.
The composable commerce development approach, which involves “composing” best-of-breed components into a custom application, is proving its value — not only in meeting current needs but in future-proofing tech stacks to deal with both anticipated and unknown changes.
This webinar will reveal the benefits of a composable commerce approach via a case study of SiteOne, a landscape supply retailer undergoing a major digital transformation. The recording is provided by Connected Consumer Series and the discussion was moderated by Adam Blair, Editor, Retail TouchPoints.
Here’s what you can expect to learn:
- The importance of MACH (Microservices-based, API-first, Cloud-native and Headless) architecture principles in developing composable commerce technology
- How SiteOne’s composable commerce approach supports the company’s model of growth via acquisition while still providing rich functionalities for both its B2B and B2C customers
- How composable commerce is future-proofing SiteOne’s tech stack and lowering TCO
