What is Sitecore Experience Commerce?
Sitecore Experience Commerce (Sitecore XC) adds enterprise-level e-commerce capabilities to the industry-leading digital experience software Sitecore Experience Platform (Sitecore XP). In short, it’s an e-commerce platform integrated with a content management system and a marketing toolset.
Sitecore XC gives businesses a chance to grow their e-commerce operations and develop better relationships with their customers by remembering them, continually learning about their preferences over time, and sharing relevant content before, during, and after a purchase.
Sitecore XC enables brands to create a custom storefront with headless architecture while taking advantage of the marketing automation and personalization features of Sitecore XP. Storefronts created with Sitecore XC feature compliance with PCI, SOC2 Type 2, GDPR, and CCPA regulations. The latest versions of Sitecore XC are distinguished by their microservices-based plugin architecture, making future upgrades and scaling much easier.
As of July 2021, Sitecore XC’s deployment options include managed cloud, self-managed cloud, and on-premises deployment.
