SAP is a Leader in the Gartner Magic Quadrant for Digital Commerce
It has come to light recently that SAP SE (NYSE: SAP) had been named a Leader in the Gartner Magic Quadrant for Digital Commerce (2019) for the fifth consecutive time. SAP was distinguished for its ability to execute in the Leaders’ quadrant in the 2019 report.
Gartner characterized a digital commerce platform as the “core technology that is enabling customers to purchase goods and services through an interactive and self-service experience. The platform provides necessary information for customers to make their buy decisions, and uses rules and data to present fully priced orders for payment.”
The report also states the following: “The platform must have out of the box (OOB) capability or the APIs to support a self-service, interactive commerce experience that includes: storefront, product catalog navigation, product pages, shopping cart, checkout, and customer account. The commerce product must support OOB, the ability to search for a product, add products to a cart, and fully price an order inclusive of product-level, customer-level, and order-level discounts or promotions. The commerce product must support interoperability with customer, product, content, and order functionality and data via APIs.”
The new cloud-based product information management solution by SAP
SAP SE (NYSE: SAP) has just announced the release of SAP Product Content Hub, a new cloud-based product information management solution (PIM).
SAP Product Content Hub was developed exclusively for providing master product data for customer-facing systems, including the SAP Commerce Cloud solution and enabling tight integration with the back office. The new user interface allows business users without IT expertise to manage high-quality product data across more than 1,500 digital marketplace, marketing and social channels.
Nowadays, businesses are under great pressure to come up with new products and content regularly, and this becomes a real issue for companies without a modern PIM or the support of the IT department, which makes enterprises struggle with manual product implementation. SAP Product Content Hub monitors and implements changes across channels automatically. Embedded AI-driven product information extraction and image recognition create versatile content.
