SAP COMMERCE CLOUD WITH SAP SPARTACUS – AN OVERVIEW

SAP Spartacus is a web application that was specially designed as a headless storefront for the SAP Commerce Cloud. In this configuration, the back end (with data management and business logic) and the front end (external appearance, design) are technically separate from one another. Thanks to this decoupling, update cycles are quicker and independent from the back end, while the design is suitable for display on a wide variety of output devices. As a progressive web app (PWA), SAP Spartacus is based on libraries which are easy to expand. The use of Angular – one of the most popular JavaScript frameworks – enables optimised development over the long term.

  • Constant expansion and updating of libraries
  • The highest degree of scalability and flexibility. Independent updates and developments for the front end
  • The greatest possible freedom of design for more flexible interfaces
  • Eliminates the need for multiple redundancies in master data storage
  • Future-proofing and quick time to market
  • Increase in effectiveness when creating content/functions
  • Optimal system performance

THE MOST IMPORTANT QUESTIONS ABOUT SAP SPARTACUS

What is SAP Commerce Spartacus?

Spartacus is a headless storefront for SAP Commerce. The PWA-enabled (progressive web app) single page application Spartacus is based on libraries which can be easily expanded and decoupled from the SAP Commerce Cloud. Spartacus has been implemented using JavaScript (more accurately: TypeScript) and Angular to ensure it is well equipped for the future. Since front end and back end are decoupled, independent release and/or update cycles can be selected to ensure that Spartacus can be released as often as possible, entirely independent of the back end. For you as client, this means that thanks to the headless approach, you benefit from a quicker time to market for new features and functions in the storefront.

Which Content Management System does Spartacus use?

For the SAP Commerce Cloud and Spartacus, we use the WCMS SmartEdit, which is already a part of SAP Commerce. SmartEdit includes complete support for the Spartacus JS storefront, and it enables the content of the storefront to be managed and personalised. The core of SmartEdit is the modern and commonly used JavaScript-framework Angular. As a WYSIWYG interface, SmartEdit offers you the option of quickly developing a site with various components, as the most important components are already supplied by SmartEdit. What’s more, Medienwerft can offer additional functionalities, which will cover your requirements and are perfectly suited to giving you a brand-appropriate presence on the web. 

What does SAP Spartacus do?

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.

When should I start using SAP Spartacus?

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.

USE THE FULL POTENTIAL OF SAP SPARTACUS!

With SAP Commerce Cloud, your web shop is perfectly equipped for all B2B and B2C challenges. The new storefront Spartacus gives your customers a comprehensive, content-driven shopping experience across all customer touch points and media.
