HEADLESS COMMERCE WITH SAP SPARTACUS
To achieve consistent omnichannel management and an optimal customer experience, content, design and available functions should be the same across all sales channels and output devices. Future-proof solution: headless commerce. Here front and back end are decoupled. In short: SAP Spartacus is controlled via API interface from the content management system. This enables independent updates and developments for the front end without needing to adjust the back end. In this way, in just a short time inspiring shopping experiences can be provided, be that on websites, mobile devices, in social media, progressive web applications or additional platforms.
GREATER INDEPENDENCE: LIBRARIES INSTEAD OF TEMPLATES
SAP describes the switch to Spartacus as a paradigm shift. This pertains firstly to the headless approach, but also the movement away from template use towards the concept of libraries. They are easy to expand, decoupled from the SAP Commerce Cloud and are updated every fortnight. This allows you to implement new versions of SAP Spartacus during ongoing operations – simply by using updated SAP Spartacus libraries. Should new functions become available in an updated library, your front end can simply be adjusted accordingly and the new functions integrated as required.
FASTER, MORE FLEXIBLE AND FUTURE PROOF
An additional benefit: the separation of front and back end has led to the significant simplification of integrations. Front-end developers can work on their designs independent from the database. The specialist back-end developers create new functions centrally in the API, with just a small adjustment necessary in the front-end applications for the content to be integrated. This saves time and effort. The need to switch technologies is also reduced here, as the decoupled delivery of the content means the functions must not be newly developed each time the technology is replaced.
SAP SPARTACUS AND YOU – WHEN WILL IT START?
In future, SAP Spartacus will fully replace the SAP Accelerators. Currently however, the essential functionalities and libraries are not available for all requirements and business models. When is it sensible to start using and/or make the switch to Spartacus? Through close contact with the SAP Spartacus developer teams, we are able to make the best decisions for your business and platforms.
THE MOST IMPORTANT QUESTIONS ABOUT SAP SPARTACUS
With the SAP Commerce Cloud and the headless storefront Spartacus, the gaps between responsive websites and mobile apps have been closed. As a single page application, Spartacus uses essential PWA features such as “add to home screen”. Using the headless concept, Spartacus decouples front from back end and accesses centralised back-end data via interfaces. In turn, this enables a comprehensive, content-driven shopping experience across all customer touch points and media.
Currently, not all requirements and functionalities have been implemented in all areas. However, in future, Spartacus will replace all SAP accelerators. SAP is striving to support all the functions of a progressive web app and is currently bringing out new releases on a fortnightly basis. The point at which it would be sensible and expedient for you to start using and/or switch to Spartacus depends on your requirements. We are happy to evaluate your requirements as part of a discussion with you to help you reach the best decision for your business and platforms.
