Two java-based software companies, KonaKart (e-commerce) and dotCMS (web content management) have joined forces to meet the challenging and growing demand of CMS-driven e-commerce. Starting this past summer, both organizations worked closely together to design and implement the proper architecture and development of an integrated tool-set, with workflows and templates, that would provide a seamless presentation layer across an e-commerce platform.
By developing an open architecture (standard plugins) between KonaKart and dotCMS, the framework and integration patterns will allow for marketing and social components to be distributed throughout the e-commerce experience — while minimizing risks and unnecessary load to the transactional systems. This architecture introduces system segmentation from core infrastructures, which is vital to the stability and security of e-commerce inner-workings.
Other social e-commerce benefits include:
“We are thrilled to join dotCMS in this exciting new initiative drawing together two best of breed solutions in the Enterprise-strength java application space”, said John Hornsby, CEO, KonaKart. “I'm convinced that the value to customers of this combined offering is even greater than the sum of its parts. We're looking forward to many joint projects in the near future.”
