It’s almost impossible to have a conversation about the future of digital commerce without the subject of composable architecture coming up.
It’s the Glastonbury Festival of the industry. The hottest ticket in town that everyone is talking about.
With speed, adaptability and scalability vital in today’s fast-moving, but uncertain, world, composability offers brands the flexibility they are looking for.
Composable architecture allows businesses to build solutions with loosely coupled microservices and applications, that can work separately while communicating through APIs. Developers can simultaneously work on different sections, while businesses can use systems from different suppliers to customise their digital stores more easily.
But if composable architecture is the Glastonbury Festival of the industry, SQLI partner Spryker is fast becoming the headlining act. It’s the up-and-coming rock star challenging the status quo - and redefining digital commerce.
Spryker’s modular, scalable and customisable commerce stack and next generation cloud capabilities are helping it win a string of high-profile clients and partners. In its recent Magic Quadrant for Digital Commerce report, Gartner suggested that “against its competitors, Spryker ranks first for composable commerce and in the upper mid-range for the B2C commerce, B2B commerce and B2C and B2B commerce on the same platform use cases.”
For Spryker CEO Alex Graf, it’s an exciting time to be in the composable market – with the buzz around the industry gathering pace.
Speaking to SQLI, he said: “It's all about momentum. Partners like SQLI are now working closely with vendors like Spryker because there's momentum in the market.
“The trajectory began three or four years ago when we internationalised the brand. It was gradual at first, but our international partners saw the potential of becoming part of the Spryker Herd - as we are calling it - earlier.
“Now, more are joining the Herd and so the momentum is growing. However, the irony is that when everyone has joined, it's too late! Then you’re SAP or Salesforce and from an agency perspective, you are making less of an impact.
“So, the exciting time to join is now. It's not when Spryker becomes a multi-billion-pound company. It's now, because now we have the strongest growth trajectory and are building the biggest momentum.”
