Improving omni-channel commerce through platform service with Carrenza
Intershop, a leading provider of ecommerce software technology, partnered with Carrenza to extend its reach to a wider range of customers through new as-a-Service offerings. By utilising the latest automation techniques, the Carrenza solutions have cut the deployment time of Intershop’s application to under an hour whilst at the same time giving developers an automated Intershop platform that makes it simpler, cheaper and easier to deploy code and build web shops.
Through simplifying and automating the deployment process Carrenza have enabled Intershop to offer their ecommerce solution to mid-market retailers, opening a new market that was otherwise limited.
E-Commerce on demand
WHY ‘AS-A-SERVICE’ FOR THE RETAIL SECTOR
The IT sector is currently going through one of the biggest transitions since the advent of the personal computer thanks to the emergence of technologies such as the cloud, with end-user organisations increasingly demanding their applications to be delivered ‘as-a-Service’.
This is especially prevalent in the retail sector where seasonal demand and the transformation of consumer buying habits, moving away from the high street to online, mean that the cloud is becoming a more cost effective and operationally efficient alternative to buying on premise applications.
SOFTWARE-AS-A-SERVICE BASED ON INTERSHOP TECHNOLOGY
Carrenza have developed a Software-as-a-Service cloud offering based on Internshop technology, allowing you to leverage Intershop’s market-leading technology fast and without upfront investment.
This ‘as-a-Service’ solution delivers full functionality of the latest version of Intershop’s E-commerce Platform, supporting every conceivable channel to reach each and every one of your customers, partners, and suppliers.
Hosted on Carrenza’s award winning Infrastructure-as-a-Service (IaaS) cloud environment, Carrenza have automated the deployment of the Intershop E-Commerce application as well as the underlying infrastructure and database.
As a result, Intershop solutions can be deployed in under an hour.
Additionally, you can scale up and down in a much simpler way than before and, when you add new servers, developers will be certain they’ll be identical to the ones that are already there and the user experience will be the same across the board.
