Gartner’s market overview of digital commerce platforms
Choosing a digital commerce platform has become increasingly complex, as there is a wide variety of offerings, functionality and service offers. In addition, while ecommerce platforms are the core of the digital commerce market, they are often supported by a number of technologies.
In the Gartner Magic Quadrant, the report lists some of the basic functionality for digital commerce platforms. We believe some of the basic functionalities can also be like: merchandising, pricing and promotion management; shopping cart and check-out; SEO tagging; product search capabilities; and localization for different countries. However, each platform implements this functionality differently, so it is important to understand what exactly is included and how it integrates with other technology.
