Oracle is a Leader in e-Commerce (IDC)
By Richard Lefebvre-Oracle on Jul 04, 2014
IDC has published an extensive evaluation of the top e-commerce platform players. Oracle shares the very top Leader spot, coming in well ahead of the likes of Hybris and Demandware. Oracle further solidifies it's spot as a top e-comm platform provider through this research.
IDC points out the many strengths of Oracle Commerce:
"Oracle Commerce, which outside of Oracle is still commonly referred to as Oracle ATG since the acquisition in 2010, is a capability-rich ecommerce platform and a popular ecommerce platform of choice by both large regional and international retailers. The Oracle ecommerce platform scored highly in our assessment due to its extensive and industry-leading range of sophisticated and granular capabilities as well as being part of a broader suite of complementary offerings covering marketing, sales, service, and social. Oracle also scored strongly due to the flexibility of its deployment options that include on-premises, hosted, cloud, or a combination as required by a retailer. In addition, IDC rated Oracle highly for having a varied licensing structure, supporting the deployment models based on a perpetual licensing basis and supported by Oracle Financing as required.
From a global perspective, Oracle Commerce is available in 22 languages (which Oracle plans to continue expanding) and supported by an extensive direct and indirect (through regional partners) global go-to-market capability to engage with potential customers and implementation projects. Oracle demonstrated a clear near- and long-term omnichannel strategy for the evolution of its ecommerce capability to become a singular commerce platform for retailers with both store and online operations."
