Why Read This Brief

For the past two years, Oracle has committed substantial R&D resources to developing a new software-as-a-service (SaaS) version of its popular on-premises commerce product. As of March 2015, the new SaaS offering "Commerce Cloud" joins other SaaS-enabled Oracle customer experience solutions in the Oracle Cloud. The development work has been happening behind closed doors with little industry insight into Oracle's strategy. eBusiness teams will, however, soon see a ramp up of marketing behind the new offering as it is already generally available on the Oracle price list and — more importantly — close to seeing its first customers go live. This brief analyzes the key differentiating capabilities of this new offering and will provide guidance to eBusiness and channel strategy professionals on how to evaluate this solution as part of their commerce technology replatforming initiatives.
