Almost a month ago, I left Sitecore to found a new company, AssureX, focused on Sitecore Commerce.
I have been working with Sitecore Commerce for almost 3 years now and was leading the UK professional services for Sitecore. It was a great experience. Being a commerce specialist, I worked with a lot of clients/partners in the commerce space. One of the exciting parts of the job was to deliver commerce trainings. Most recently, the training teaser workshop at SUGCON EU and the Commerce + JSS talk at SUGCON EU and India intrigued a lot of developers. A large number of developers attending these session shows a considerable interest in the platform by the community.
Sitecore Commerce (XC) is a unique product in the market, built ground up to work with Sitecore XP. You can reap the benefits of digital marketing capabilities of Sitecore XP while enabling a contextual online shopping experience for customers. As it is rightly said, putting content and commerce in context.
What I like about Sitecore Commerce is – it is built for extension. Every business is unique and has unique business needs. You need a platform that can be customised and the final product is built specifically for your business, saving you the time & effort of maintaining bulky platforms with features you are not going to use. Hence, opt-in Complexity. It is a true headless platform if done right can allow you to use any front-end technology while retaining the benefits of Sitecore personalisation engine and presentation layer. This was demonstrated in my talks at SUGCON EU and India.
As with any other products, it must be done right with the people having the right skills. My experience shows that the project can fail miserably if the right skills are not utilised on the project.
The liking for the product and to fill the knowledge gap in the Sitecore Commerce Space are the reasons I founded AssureX.
