SAN FRANCISCO, June 20, 2018 /PRNewswire/ — Skava, a global provider of cloud microservices for ecommerce, announced today that Gartner gave the company the highest placement in the Modular, Flexible Implementations Use Case within its 2018 “Critical Capabilities for Digital Commerce”*. This positioning comes just one day after Skava placed on the 2018 Gartner Magic Quadrant for Digital Commerce.
The Gartner document notes, “Application leaders must look for flexibility, modularity and agility as critical capabilities for leading digital commerce platforms.” With regard to Modularity and API-based solutions, “There is increased interest from prospective clients and noticeable shifts from commerce platform vendors on API-based commerce platforms, reflecting the relevance of flexibility and modularity in commerce solutions.”
Skava offers modular e-commerce and digital platforms to mid and enterprise-sized companies including Kraft Heinz, Barnes & Noble, Urban Outfitters, and others. Built with cloud microservices, Skava Commerce enables businesses to easily and quickly deploy the components they need, reach out to more customers consistently across multiple channels, and deliver personalized digital commerce experiences.
“The rise of modular commerce comes at a time when enterprise businesses want to select the industry-leading components they need without overhauling systems,” said Arish Ali, CEO at Skava. “We recognize brands are more time-crunched and resources-strapped than ever, so our modular approach to digital commerce scaffolds the tools they need, reduces time to market, and increases efficacy. We applaud our customers who have reduced their implementation time and costs to focus on what matters most—creating revolutionary customer experiences.”
The Critical Capabilities note is a companion note to the “Magic Quadrant for Digital Commerce” and is intended for use in evaluating and selecting the optimal digital commerce platform. The latter note is intended to assist application leaders supporting digital commerce platform selection, maintenance or ongoing operations.
