Unlocking growth: Our guide to decomposing and migrating eCommerce in a nutshell

Care to share?

Many eCommerce businesses reach a point where the existing architecture no longer meets the demands of growth. What was the market norm yesterday, today might be an outdated piece of technology that holds you back. Omnichannel models that everyone strives to implement now provide an especially strong impulse for modernization because of their demanding nature.

When it comes to upgrading your eCommerce architecture, one of the biggest leaps forward you can make is the process of decomposition. Simply put, it means transforming a monolithic solution with a tightly coupled front and back end into a composable architecture that lets you pick and choose all the different components. Among other benefits, this lets you precisely match solutions with your business needs and boost the performance of your store.

The process of decomposition can bring spectacular results, but it requires proper planning and know-how to conduct it the right way. That’s why we released our “Unlocking growth” eBook. It goes over the basics of decomposition and suggests three different migration scenarios crafted by our experts. Here’s a little taste of what you’ll find inside.

“Unlocking growth” eBook in numbers

1. In-depth insights from over 1,400 projects

The eBook is far from just being about theory.

It’s an opportunity for you to learn from the successes and challenges of others who have successfully navigated the intricate path of decomposing and migrating major eCommerce projects.

2. Addressing monolithic pain points

Why is there a need for eCommerce decomposition in the first place? It’s a valuable question that deserves attention, especially in challenging times when businesses would rather avoid costly projects.

We devote an entire chapter of the eBook to this matter. Our experts break down four common pain points and challenges associated with monolithic architectures and explain them in detail. By understanding these pain points, you'll be better equipped to make informed decisions for your eCommerce business.

3. Three real-world scenarios and strategies

Composable architecture provides you with practically limitless configurations of modules that you can decide on. Accordingly, there are almost limitless ways in which you can approach building the eCommerce ecosystem in the first place. 

That said, the three scenarios proposed by our experts are more about the big picture than the nitty-gritty. They serve as jumping-off points for the beginning of your project to showcase what’s possible and choose the broader approach for you and your business. You can think of this eBook as a compass that will point you in the right direction while the precise map will be drawn and personalized for you during the project.

4. Solutions for every business

When writing “Unlocking growth,” we stressed that each business is unique. Companies that are considering decomposition come from various backgrounds, have different budgets, and might either want to go all-in or just dip their toes in first.
