How to get started with Composable Commerce

When Gartner, one of the leading research and advisory companies in the IT sector, published a report entitled Composable Commerce Must Be Adopted for the Future of Applications, there was no room for “should you or shouldn’t you?”

OneStock takes the same position. To future-proof your business, we truly believe that you must make the move to Composable Commerce.

Here’s our advice on how to get started.

How to get started with Composable Commerce?

Going composable is very similar to any other IT project in your organisation and repeats some very traditional stages:

  1. Define the stakeholders

Composable commerce is a transversal project, involving technical and e-commerce teams on the operational side. From a strategic point of view, general management is usually also involved in the decision-making process.

The stakeholders must be able to define the business priorities for the project, integrate new stacks based on an API-first approach, and provide a consistent UX for all e-commerce services, even if they use different vendors.

  1. Define your business priorities

Analyse your current sales journeys and business processes, identifying the areas that are performing well, but also where there is room for improvement. Make an exhaustive review of all the problems you have and then focus on the relevant stacks you would need to solve them.

  1. Choose your partners

Composable commerce is really about choosing the best partner to answer your business priorities. For the underperforming or missing stacks you identified earlier, start looking at relevant solution providers. Look for modular solutions that can be easily integrated into your current processes through APIs.

  1. Become composable!

Integrate the new solutions into your existing IT systems and take some time to test your composable commerce solution. Make sure you add any necessary optimisations to make it fit your needs.

Your needs may change in the future, so be sure to update your composable commerce solutions to keep it aligned with your business objectives.
