SITECORE EXPERIENCE COMMERCE 9.3 IS ALL ABOUT SCALABILITY
VSG Commerce continues to be a leading content and commerce partner specializing in digital user experience, content delivery and commerce. We take great pride in creating online experiences which improve brand awareness, customer satisfaction and revenue. As part of VSG Commerce’s Thought Leadership Series, we wanted to point out a few areas that we feel are important to our clients with Sitecore’s latest release of XC 9.3.
For the past 2 years starting with Sitecore Experience Commerce (XC) 9.0 we have seen what Sitecore can bring to the table with the Sitecore commerce engine. Each new release and update of XC continue to bring more and more storefront functionality, with promises to offer even more with each iteration. Sitecore’s latest release of XC 9.3 is no exception and offers even more power to customers looking to grow their ecommerce presence.
Reimagining the Commerce Cache from the Ground Up
With the latest release commerce for 9.3 we see some big changes with how things scale within Sitecore – most notably caching. In order to take customer experience to the next level, Sitecore revisited how they approach serving up larger catalog offerings and how the storefront brings that information to the customer. This was done by centralizing the commerce cache within Redis. With Redis, Sitecore can allow for larger, more complex catalog structures without requiring rigorous cache design and management.
Merchandising at the Speed of Light
For Sitecore XC 9.3 the product catalog isn’t the only place we see improvements around performance. In the past, searching for information as a merchandiser within the commerce Business Tools would be exhaustive for those with a larger selection of products. With the changes to how Sitecore handles fetching information for merchandisers, promotion authors, and customer service reps – anyone that works within the commerce business tools will notice a significant boost of speed when searching for the data they need. Faster tools mean faster time to market with new inventory and promotional offers.
