Composable eCommerce

Composable eCommerce Solutions

McKenna Consultants specialise in the development of large-scale, complex, B2B composable architecture. A composable eCommerce solution integrates best-of-breed components into a cohesive, whole solution which presents a great user experience for purchasers.

Our clients typically have an extensive product catalogue, often including complex configurable products. We produce solutions that cover multiple languages and geographical regions along with the complexities that differing business practices in different regions bring.

Benefits of a Composable eCommerce Web Store

There are numerous benefits to using composable commerce architecture for your web store, including increased speed, stability, security and scalability. This means your web store is not only optimised in the short term, but it will be able to grow as your business does.

What Is Composable Architecture?

Composable architecture is the practice of building a cohesive, whole eCommerce web store based on the best fit-for-purpose components. Components are typically purchased from third parties and may also include bespoke components.

The key challenge for building a composable commerce architecture solution is being able to competently integrate the various components into a working, cohesive whole. The types of components involved typically include:

  • eCommerce Core (like Elastic Path)
  • Product Information Management
  • ERP Systems
  • Search and Navigation
  • User Identity And Authentication
  • Configure, Price, Quote
  • Pricing And Availability Systems
  • Security Tooling
  • Payment Systems
  • Analytics
  • Geo-Location
  • And many more!

Our preferred core composable eCommerce platform is Elastic Path (which brings excellent account management and catalogue management features), but that is only the beginning of the journey. You can learn more about the architecture of a composable eCommerce store using Elastic Path over on our blog.
