A New Beginning|SAP Commerce

Hello Everyone,

I’m Sagar & welcome to my first blog post (ever).

I’ve been learning & working on Hybris for the past 3 years and believe me, every day is a new adventure.

So in this series of blog posts, I’ll share with you all my knowledge and experience that I gained during my journey.

So, before we get started,

I would like to get your VOTE in the comments below, Which  way do you prefer to purchase a product & why?:


So, whatever you chose, we both agree we want our shopping experience to be easy, quick, personalized, and reliable.

With the Increasing population in countries like China, India, United States, It was tough for stores to handle such great demands & services without a long queue

During this time only we were Introduced to Online Shopping now called E-commerce.

It is a business model that lets firms and individuals buy and sell things over the internet.

We are currently in 2020 where there are more than 20 million E-Commerce websites and numbers are growing rapidly.

Due to this  Increase in Online shopping, a large number of tech giants were attracted to prepare a platform with more enriched features that help companies and developers to boost their process of development.

One such platform “Hybris” was founded in Zug, Switzerland, in 1997 by Carsten Thoma, Moritz Zimmermann, Klaas Hermanns, Christian Flaccus, and Andreas Bucksteeg which was later on acquired by SAP. (Source: wiki)

So, let’s get started.

What is SAP Commerce cloud?

Answer: SAP Commerce Cloud (originally called SAP Hybris) is an E-commerce platform that provides an omnichannel commerce solution for B2B, B2C, and B2B2C companies with preloaded templates.

Why SAP commerce?

Answer: Believe me, it requires a whole new blog post to apprise “why”

but giving a quick briefing:

  • it comes with preloaded templates that drastically reduces your time to build a whole new e-commerce website from scratch
  • it provides you an omnichannel platform
  • Supports business internationalization
  • One platform for B2C and B2B users
    and last but not least,
  • Use Most Stable technologies like JAVA, SPRING, APACHE SOLR
  • Product content and catalog management


That’s it for now. Shall continue in the next blog post coming soon.

Thanks for the Read.

Take care of yourself and your loved one’s during this pandemic

Signing off!

Sagar Bhambhani.
